Information Page: Carpet Cleaning & Pet Treatment

                            

Welcome to Our Pet Stain & Odor Information Page 

No relationship we humans have is quite like the attachment we form with our family pets and as much as we care for our wonderful friends there is no greater challenge than dealing with the messes they often leave behind.

Most likely you have reached this post after contacting our office to schedule a carpet cleaning or have landed on this page as a result of a web search on this topic. It is for this reason this article has been written; to provide accurate information relating to professional carpet cleaning when dealing with pet urine contamination in carpet.

The results achieved from a professional carpet cleaning will vary from case to case depending upon the amount of pet urine in the carpet and to what extent it has penetrated into the carpet backing, pad, or sub flooring. Pet urine can be flushed out of carpet fibers relatively easy using the right products & equipment, yet it is the contamination trapped on the underside of the carpet that can cause the biggest problems.

Over our 30+ years of serving the Tulsa / Broken Arrow and surrounding communities, it has been our continual pursuit to develop & provide the most thorough carpet cleaning for pet odors available. With this experience, we have found the best approach to rid carpet of ugly pet stains and persistent odors is with our 5 step deep steam cleaning process utilizing a UV Inspection tool, to track down every stain. Rest assured, this amazing cleaning process will leave your carpet looking and smelling its absolute best! 

As you read this article please follow the highlighted links within this post. It is our purpose to be as informative as possible, so you may evaluate what results to expect when scheduling your carpet cleaning and pet odor treatment. Issues that can occur from pet urine contamination after a professional cleaning & treatment will also be covered. 

 

How we deal with Pet Urine in Carpet (Our Method)

 

 Our Proven 5 Step Process

  1. Find all pet stains using a UV Black Light Inspection
  2. Prespray with an All Natural Organic Prespray made from Tea Tree & Lavender
  3. Prep Carpet with a Floor Machine 
  4. Deep steam clean all carpeted areas & extra flush on each pet stain with a Truck Mounted Steam Cleaning System
  5. Apply Post Spray to each area found during the UV Inspection

 

Why use a UV Black light?

Not all pet urine stains are visible, a UV inspection with a high powered Black light enables our technicians to detect and locate each pet stain, old and new.

When a contaminated area is detected it receives additional Prespray along with extra flushing during the extraction process.

If a UV inspection is not provided by the company you hire the technician will have no idea where the contamination is located and cannot flush and treat the areas thoroughly enough to remove the odorous bacteria.

 

Why an Organic Tea Tree & Lavender Prespray?

With all the products on the market to choose from we have found none as safe & effective as our all natural tea tree and lavender Prespray.

This product has proven itself time and again as the most effective product ever for neutralizing urine bacteria and preparing the contaminant for extraction. It is both anti-bacterial & anti-viral by nature and when applied as a Prespray to your carpet it immediately gets to work breaking down the molecular structure of the urine bacteria enabling it to be flushed out of the carpet with ease. Along with its odor & germ removing capabilities, it is nice to know it is safe, natural and leaves the carpet smelling clean & fresh.

 

Why Prep the Carpet with a Floor Machine?

When a stain or contaminant is deep down in the carpet fiber it is necessary to loosen the stain and get the sanitizer to the source of the odor with some type of agitation or grooming.

The hand held groomer used by most companies can be effective but the results do not compare with those achieved by using a floor machine with an Adjust- a- Glide brush.

This type of brush has very soft bristles made especially for carpet and a floater disk on the bottom which allows it to work the stains loose and the product into the carpet in a gentle yet very effective way. Taking the extra time and effort to provide this type of service allows us to achieve results that are unmatched by other companies that skip this step.

 

Why Deep Steam & Extra Flush?

There is no more effective way to remove and extract pet urine bacteria from carpet than with a truck mounted hot water extraction systems.

Our units heat the clean rinse solution to a hot 180 – 200 degrees. The Evolution extraction wand we use is specially designed to flush the carpet at a pressure of 500 psi leaving your carpet clean & bacteria free.

 

Why Apply a Post Spray?

 

The nature of pet urine is to soak its way down into the carpet backing. It becomes trapped on the underside of the carpet and then penetrates into the carpet cushion below.

Over a period of time the staining on the back side of the carpet can "wick" its way back through the carpet fiber and resurface causing a reoccuring stain or odor to return.

After your carpet has been thoroughly cleaned a post spray is applied to each stain found during the UV Inspection. This way if the pet urine begins to seep its way back to the surface the post spray will activate and continue to break down the bacteria germs and odor.

 

Now that we have discussed the cleaning process lets go over some of the issues that can arise after a professional cleaning. 

Wicking:

If an odor does persist after a cleaning or a brown stain resurfaces, this means the staining on the backside of the carpet is working its way back up, this process is known as wicking.

 

Here are a few options to take care of this problem if it occurs.

Apply Carpet Fresh for Odor

Purchase a carpet fresh product at your local Walmart store; sprinkle this product on the carpet followed by vacuuming. This will remove the odor that has wicked back through and most times will take care of the problem for you.

 

For more severe odor situations another option would be a water claw spot treatment or a pet damage restoration service. Follow these two links to gain a further understanding on these two processes. At Carpet Renovations, Inc. we offer both of these services for more severe pet contamination problems, you may call our office to schedule an appointment so we may analyze your situations further and discuss which method would work best for you.

 

Reoccurring Stains

If you have light colored carpet and brown staining reappears; please follow our heat transfer instructions  on your FAQ sheet you will receive at the time of your cleaning. You may also follow this link how to remove a stain that reappeares or call into our office to schedule an appointment for us to perform our heat transfer process for you.

How to Remove Dog Poop from Carpet

 

As a carpet cleaning professional we receive many calls a week from customers who are going through new puppy training or some other type of accident such as the family pet getting sick. Most often in these cases it is possible for the homeowner to clean the area without having to call in the professionals.

Here are a few tips on what to do.

 

1.  If the feces is solid, remove as much as possible with rubber gloves and toilet paper and flush it down the toilet or place it in a trash bag, flushing is more eco-friendly ! laughing

If loose use a shop vac to extract as much of the waste out as possible always working upward.

It is very important during this step to not allow the feces to go down further into the carpet backing.

If you do not have a shop vac then allow the area to dry and loosen it later with a fork, spatula, or similar tool.  

You can place a bowl over the area to keep the odor from stinking up the room.

 

2.  After removing as much of the feces from the area as possible apply a pet cleaning agent to the stained area. Be sure you mist the surface only, do not over saturate.

You can purchase a pet stain remover at your local pet store and keep it handy for these special occasions.

These cleaning products are made to break down pet urine and feces and will help eliminate the odor and bacteria from the carpet.

 

Note:  Do not use soap and water! Most of the information found online suggests using household cleaning detergents and flooding the area; this will only make your problem worse.

 

3. Using a carpet shampooer such as a Rug doctor or Bissell home shampooer extract the area thoroughly.

If you do not have this type of system you can blot the area in a circular motion using a wet teri-cloth towel along with your pet cleaning agent.

You may have to repeat the blotting process several times rinsing the towel between cleanings to get the stain out. 

It is well worth repeating; Do not over saturate the carpet, simply mist and blot. This will take longer but will save you from creating a bigger mess.

Saturating the area will cause the dog feces to become liquid and will then soak into the carpet’s backing. The stain will then get trapped on the back side of the carpet and will keep coming back after the carpet dries.

 

4.  If the stain does not come out completely, you can use the trick the professionals use by performing a heat transfer, just following this link

 

5. The pet product you use should take care of the odor but If after the carpet dries there is still an odor, sprinkle carpet fresh on the area and vacuum.

 

These steps will take care of the majority of problems you will face from pet feces accidents but if the stain persists or the odor is not removed be sure to call your local carpet cleaning professional.

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

 

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

Vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough. There will soon come a time where you will want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned to help keep your home spotless and allergen free and to extend the life of your carpet. Just how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Here’s a rough guide for your home.

The Average Carpet
It really depends on factors like the amount of foot traffic your carpet receives and where that carpet is laid, but on average you should look at getting the carpet cleaned every 12-18 months. This helps to lift all the dirt that gets into the fibers that vacuuming just doesn’t manage. You’ll also brighten some of the darker patches.
If your carpet is in a second home and rarely used, then cleaning can be less frequent. Just bear in mind that while there’s no foot traffic, dust will settle within the fibers.
That being said, if your carpet receives daily foot traffic and sees mud and dirt dragged in, you may want to consider cleaning more frequently.

Cleaning for Families
Families will find their carpet needs cleaning more frequently. You should consider professional carpet cleaning  every 6-12 months, instead. Your children are more likely to drag mud and dirt in or can spill drinks frequently.
Those who have pets should also consider cleaning every six months or so. The pet hairs will get stuck in the fibers and can cause some allergens. There will likely also be dirt and urine accidents that seep into the fibers.

Do you have both kids and pets? Consider cleaning every two or three months. This will help to eliminate pet problems and keep your children safe. You know they love to pick up anything from the floor and put it in their mouths!

So as you can see there is no one set rule for how often you should have your carpet cleaned but keeping these variables in mind mainly how much your carpet is used and your particular family members, and making sure you do not wait too long in between cleans will help keep your carpet investment longer and your home a healthier place to live for you and your family.
