Pets are wonderful additions to the family. They bring joy, laughter, and comfort to the daily activities of life. Unfortunately, pets also tend to have accidents on our home's carpets and upholstery. Their urine seeps deep into the depths of your carpets and even when it dries it leaves urine crystals and that horrible ammonia smell, which can worsen respiratory issues.
The urine also can contain harmful bacteria in the carpet or upholstery that can be harmful to you and your loved ones. Just like you wouldn't want to be relaxing or having your children playing in the toilet you want to avoid your family's contact with your pet's urine.
So, how do you find all the places that your pet has left a mess? Chem-Dry has the solution with their use of black light technology. With this technology we are able to help you find all the spots in your home, maybe even ones you have yet to discover.
Luckily, we are able to find these spots and provide our P.U.R.T. solution to go deep into your carpet and explode the odor causing crystals, and if our sanitizer is added we are able to remove the dangers of disease causing bacteria left behind.
Tip #1: Don't use a steam cleaner - The heat that is vital to steam cleaning can cause the smell and stain to become a permanent fixture in your carpet or upholstery.
Tip #2: Avoid using strong-smelling chemicals - especially ammonia - Urine is a way for your pet to mark its territory. As the urine converts to ammonia as it sets in, using strong smelling chemicals will only reinforce that that spot is a place to do business.
Tip #3: Stay away from enzyme-based products - these products have to stay in contact with the source for several hours and stay wet the entire time. This requires vigilance and time consuming work on a product that is often so fragile it doesn't work.
Tip #4: Purchase a Chem-Dry Pet Odor Extinguisher to clean spots right when they happen and between your deep cleanings.
