Tips For Pet Odor Removal
If you are a pet owner, chances are that you will have to contend with pet odor at some point in time. Sometimes you can solve the problem by yourself. If not, you will need professional assistance.
Step 1: Identify the source of the pet odor
This seems like an easy task, right? But when you look for the pet stain, it might not be visible to you. Because pet odors don’t automatically mean they are accompanied by an easily visible stain. One way to find a spot is to actually get down on your hands and knees and sniff your way to the offensive odor. If this is inconvenient, there is a better method. Pet urine contains salts that are visible under black light. You can buy a cheap black light (for about ten bucks). Turn out all the lights in the room and close all curtains. Then you turn on the black light and start searching the carpet. pet stains will shine when the black light is pointed at them.
Step 2: Treat the odor
Now that you’ve identified the spot you can start treating it-but it might not be so easy. That’s because urine sometimes soaks not only into the carpet, but all the way through to the backing, the padding, and sometimes even the floor beneath.
If this is the case, you cannot simply wipe the spot away. You will have to take a trip to the pet store and buy an enzyme spotter. This enzyme solution will actually eat the proteins in the urine that the bacteria are feeding on. That’s the key, because it’s the bacteria that causes the odor. This protein eating process could take several days until the odor is gone. Need more help? Call Choicecare Carpet Cleaning Service @912-354-3067.
