Did you know that when your pet urinates on your carpet and it’s not cleaned up correctly and quickly, it can cause issues below your carpet that require major restoration work? On top of that, hot summer weather and even humidity can make pet urine accidents smell even worse.
When in doubt about your pet’s stains, give our experts at carpet cleaning in Layton, UT a call — we’re always happy to help! Besides contacting us when accidents happen, here are a few other tips to combat urine stains and keep your carpet fresh!
Understand why your pet’s accidents happen.
Take some time to discover why your pet keeps having accidents in your home. Make sure you’re taking your pet outside regularly so they have a chance to relieve themselves and practice proper training methods. Of course, if you have a puppy, these accidents will decrease over time. And if you have an elderly dog or cat, they may be struggling with health issues that cause accidents and your vet may be able to help ease these troubles.
Get a safe, store-bought enzyme cleaner for minor accidents.
There are tons of pet urine removal enzyme cleaners that you can purchase in stores or online. Some cleaners are made for hard surfaces and others for soft surfaces like carpets and rugs. Do your research to determine what enzyme cleaner will be safest for your pet and your home. Always test a small area of your carpet with the cleaner before using it to treat a large pet urine stain on a more visible part of your carpet.
Use a professional carpet cleaning in Layton, UT for the most effective stain removal.
If your carpet has years of stains and smells that need to be removed or store-bought solutions don’t seem to be working, it’s time to call our team at Precision Chem-Dry and schedule a carpet cleaning in Layton, UT. During our powerful pet urine removal treatment, we do a contamination inspection using UV to locate urine deposits in your carpets. After that, we apply a hot water rinse to extract most of the urine crystals. In cases with severe stains, the carpet may be pulled back so the extent of the damage can be thoroughly evaluated, and then the carpet pad will be replaced. Once completed, an odor-blocking shellac may be applied to the sub-floor to prevent odors from returning in the future if necessary.
Once your carpet is prepped according to your specific needs, a trained cleaning technician will apply P.U.R.T.® to the sub-floor, tack strip, carpet backing, and baseboards. The ingredients in P.U.R.T.® will continue to work over the next 24 to 36 hours, reacting with the urine and breaking down odor-causing components. The result will be fresh carpets virtually free of pet odors and stains!
