Pet Odor Removal
If your pets regularly leave behind lingering odors on your carpets, pieces of furniture, and the floor itself, you might think that using standard, store-bought cleaning products should be sufficient in clearing away the smell. However, even if your cleaning products can efficiently uproot the smells at their sources, you’ll have to be aware that you’re potentially exposing yourself to long-term health hazards. A lot of cleaning fluids are made up of chemicals that can emit harmful vapors after they are applied, and stronger fluids mean stronger fumes.
To avoid potentially affecting your own health, you’ll need to consult a cleaning service that’s dedicated to clearing away odors in a way that makes your residence safe to live in. We offer the necessary levels of professional experience and product safety to ensure that you won’t ever have to risk getting harmful chemicals on your body and in your lungs. The products we use to clear away sources of odor are designed to additionally remove bacteria, to start having immediate results, and to achieve this with cleaning solutions that do not involve any hazardous components.
If a section of your carpet or floor padding carries a slight odor of pet urine that you can only smell by bringing your face close to it, we can apply a surface-level procedure that will treat the sources of odor and any bacteria that reside on the surface of that area. We define this source of odor as “Minor” if it is only at its most apparent during humid weather, and our service for this level of odor isn’t intended to clean away its roots that may lie deeper in the padding. For these cases, we spray enzymes that have been mixed so that they will not irritate persons with chemical sensitivity; this solution is called Bi-O-Kleen, and we apply this in amounts that are proportional to how strong the odors are before proceeding with a traditional cleaning job.
For odors that are pungent enough that anyone can smell them upon entering a room, these are emitted by spots in which pet urine has deeply ingrained itself into the material. We may define these cases as “Moderate,” in which case we will perform a two-step procedure: After inundating the offending spot in a deodorizing agent that has been treated to oxidize so that other cleaning substances will better penetrate the material, we will extract the urine from the material with a tool called a “Water Claw.” This may possibly not be enough to fully treat the most severe cases, however, and we will have to carry this out carefully if the carpet or padding lies on top of a wooden surface.
Ordinarily, our treatment procedure for “Moderate” cases is sufficient for the majority of odor removal jobs up to fairly severe cases, and both it and the “Minor” procedure are comparatively economical choices for our customers. However, if the pet responsible for your most severe odors doesn’t live in your residence anymore, you may qualify for our highly expensive “Major” treatment procedure. This is guaranteed to remove all traces of pet urine from your carpets; not only will we use oxidizing solutions and enzymes on both of a carpet’s faces after pulling it up, but we will also apply a transparent barrier on the back surface of your carpet and the baseboards that will ensure that no fumes can escape. This should only be considered as a last resort, but this will nonetheless ensure that you will never need to rely on using your own potentially hazardous cleaning products to remove pet odors again.
