Pet Problem Restorative Cleaning
Pet Odor Treatments, Removal and Restoration Services
For Pataskala and a greater portion of Central Ohio.
As homeowners we don't realize that a dog or cat that weighs less than five pounds will produce more than ten gallons of urine per year. If the animal concentrates most of that into an area of less than 100 square feet, which many do, the problem can be extensive.
Lets first take at look at what Odor Removal is not!
It is not spraying your carpet with over-the-counter carpet deodorizers with or without having to vacuum your carpet afterward. Many of these products contain baking soda that is difficult to remove causing other problems down the road.
It is not sprinkling your carpet with powdered carpet deodorizer, once again they contain baking soda. Please do not do this!
It is not using plug-ins or air fresheners, although they may help mask over the problem temporarily, only to return once the fragrance is used up.
Now let's take a look at what Odor Removal really is!
It is first removing the source of what is causing the odor.
It is cleaning the surfaces the problem was exposed to.
It is identifying the type of situation that occurred by properly using the right odor
It is coating that surface with an appropriate sealer when applicable
Pet urine odor has its own problem, namely gravity. Not only does the
carpet get saturated with urine, but as it soaks through the carpet, it also
soaks through the carpet cushion or pad. On occasion, the underlayment
can get damaged, too. Some pets can even spray high up onto walls.
Whether it is concrete or wood, both are very absorbent. We can solve your pet odor problems with a variety of treatments
Pet accidents can cause urine to saok through the carpet into the backing, carpet padding and even into the under-laying floor, creating a "multi-layer" problem. The biggest challenge in getting the pet odor out is to remove the contamination from all of the affected layers.
A good rule of thumb, is if over 30 percent of a room is contaminated, replacement is going to be recommended but I personally have seen just a corner of a room so heavily affected, replacement was recommended.
Inspecting Areas Contaminated
Under normal lighting conditions urine
contamination may not be visible. Using
ultraviolet light we can identify the problem
Treatment 1, The Highly Recommended Water Claw.
The Water Claw Sub-Surface Spot Lifter has forever changed spotting
procedures in the professional cleaning industry.
Finally, a tool designed to flush contaminants out of both carpet and
pad from the surface without the added expense of lifting and reinstalling the
carpet. Amazing results are achieved without the aggravation of removing
furnishings from the room.
Treatment 2, Underlayment
Have you ever had to replace a carpet because of pet urine odor and then find out later that odor has returned? That is because the underlayment was never properly treated. Carpet installers do not know how to identify or treat problem-causing odors. That is why you should reach out to a professional in the cleaning industry first.
Being trained in Odor Control Techniques can be of added value to you when we identify and correct pet urine problems. When severe problems exist that even the Water Claw can't correct, we then recommend Treatment 2. It is the most thorough correction process known.
Disengage and lift the carpet. Clean, treat and seal underlayment and affected areas. Clean and treat the underside of carpeting backing system. Replace affected carpet cusion, reinstall carpet. Clean and treat
