Why Hire a Pro for Pet Odor RemovalJuly 31st, 2019
Almost half the households in America have a dog, with just over a third of the population owning a cat. As fantastic as pets can be, one of the most common complaints in the professional cleaning industry is pet odors.
At Sir Carpet, we’re the leading provider of professional pet odor removal in Phoenix, AZ. We’ve created this post because we want to educate our customers on the importance of working with a professional to remove pet odors from their carpets and upholstery.
Why are Pet Odors so Hard to Remove?
Unfortunately, pet urine is nitrogen-rich, and this is what gives it the pungent smell of ammonia that can linger on in households long after any mess has been cleaned up. Aside from urine, certain bacteria that are present inside pets’ fecal matter can create a lasting, undesirable stench.
When both of these smells combine, odors can become a permanent problem in a home. Also, many pets vomit on our floors when they have an upset stomach; stomach acids can stain carpets and furniture as well as creating unpleasant odors.
Why Contact a Professional?
Although it’s tempting to buy an odor remover from the local pet shop, this could worsen a situation, as all these products tend to do is cover up the problem. Stain removers are also only a temporary fix, sometimes making it harder to shift stains as the chemicals that they contain react with organic materials, making stains a permanent fixture in certain types of fabric.
Professionals use industrial products that remove stains permanently and are much more efficient than over-the-counter substances. They use industry-standard equipment and chemicals that both neutralize unpleasant smells and eliminate any unsightly patches that furry friends can leave behind.
Additionally, professional cleaning companies use ultraviolet technology to make sure that any hidden spots are also treated. They pre-treat affected areas, flush the areas to remove protein and bacteria contaminants, and then use hot water extraction technology to eliminate any pollutants permanently. When this is complete, they dry the carpet out to ensure that no damp areas are left behind.
