Many homeowners have pets roaming through the house, which opens the door to an occasional "accident" on your expensive carpet or area rug. That's not a surprise, but it can be a problem. If you use the wrong cleaning method, a pet stain can become permanent.
The key to effectively removing pet stains and odors is to treat them immediately and treat them properly. For homeowners in Dayton, Ohio and its surrounding communities, that means a call to Teasdale Fenton. We are your one-stop destination for all types of carpet and floor cleaning, including the removal of tough stains and odors for both residential and commercial customers.
Our best-in-class pet urine and odor treatments encapsulate the bacterias in the stain to release the uric acid and break its bond with your carpet and padding. That bond creates the odor. Because urine has a half-life of six years, its smell returns when uric acid is exposed to humidity after being masked by common cleaners that include soap, vinegar, ammonia, chlorine or baking soda. Having a professional cleaning service remove the uric acid from your carpet fibers, on the other hand, will allow the bacteria to be extracted and will prevent the smell from returning.
Because animals prefer returning to the same area to answer nature's call, inadequate removal of pet stains and odors inside your home may lead to repeat offenses and additional damages. The chemical composition of pet stains makes them tricky to remove. Among the biggest challenges:
Your pet's stomach contains many of the same acids and bacterias as your stomach to aid in the digestion process. When pet urine dries in your carpet, the urea is broken down by that bacteria. This is what makes it smell like ammonia. As the urine decomposes, it releases thiols that intensify the odor. As a point of reference, it is the thiols in skunk spray that make it so potent and difficult to remove.
Traditional household cleaners that are water soluble will eliminate urea, urobilin/urobilinogen, creatinine and pheromones. But uric acid and the salts it leaves behind are not water soluble. Those substances bond tightly to whatever surface they touch. When exposed to humidity, uric acid salts cause the uric acid crystals to reform and release the original smell once again.
For pet-loving families and their favorite furry friends, we have a wide variety of commercial cleaning agents that are safe for two-legged and four-legged residents at your home. We offer an enzyme treatment that will break down the acids, ammonia and uric acids in the carpet and allow us to remove the odor and discoloration. If you have a severe problem, we can use an oxygenated chemical cleaner that goes deep into the padding and removes the urine from the pad and the carpet backing as well as the surface for successful extraction. Teasdale Fenton serves homeowners in Dayton, Ohio and its surrounding communities.
