Pet Urine and Odor Removal

Pet stain odor is a very common problem that could be much more complex than on first impression. Pet urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet into the padding underneath. In more severe cases the urine can penetrate into the sub-floor beneath the padding.

Pet urine can creat multi-layered problem


To eliminate this problem, the urine must be removed or neutralized from each of the layers affected. If the contamination is limited to only the face yarn of the carpet then the cleaning itself may effectively remove the odor.

The urine also provides for the growth of bacteria. This in turn contributes to a worsening of the odor problem and can contribute to permanent color loss of the carpet fiber.

Light pet urine contamination can effectively be treated topically without the need to pull back the carpet and treat underneath. In the most severe cases, replacement of the carpet padding, treatment of the under-side of the carpet and the sub-floor may be required.

How we treat pet stains and odors

Light pet urine contamination

Light pet urine contamination can be treated from the top of the carpet with enzyme odor treatments. Pet urine accidents are detected using a UV black light and then pre-treated with enzyme detergents. After a short dwell time, the area is then cleaned as normal. The cost for this service ranges from $5-$25 per room depending on the severity of the problem. Unfortunately we are not able to provide an exact quote for this serviceover phone or email for odor removal. Your technician can provide an exact cost for this once he arrives. Alternatively, we would also be happy to come out and provide an in-home estimate at no charge. Although this is a great method to help and improve pet urine odor removal, we cannot guarantee odor removal by topical pet urine treatment cleaning.

Heavy pet urine contamination

Areas that are more heavily contaminated should have the carpet padding discarded and the carpet itself flushed and treated from the back. The process consists of pulling the carpet back, removing the carpet padding, and then flooding the the carpet with enzymes and odor counteractants. We then rinse and extract all the detergents and urine away with a sub-floor extraction tool. In some cases, the sub-floor will need to be treated with KILLZ. Costs can vary greatly depending on the severity of the problem. We can assist finding the spots with a powerful UV flashlight.
