Cleaning Up After Pets

Pets are often a source of comfort in our lives, but on occasion that comfort can turn into a trial as well. We are often asked from both residential owners and commercial building managers to make sure that we get the pet urine or pet odor out of the carpet or how to clean dog vomit from the carpet.

When animals get stressed or ill sometimes things can happen. After you take care of the immediate problem you’re faced with removing cat urine in carpets or even pet stains from feces and urine.

Homemade Remedies For Pet Stain Removal

Store-bought or homemade remedies for pet stain removal are often substandard because they don’t penetrate deeply enough or are ineffective in other ways. Cleaning pet urine from carpet using these tools can be a long frustrating process.

Even when you think the problem has been fixed, in a few days the smell is magically back. That’s because the cleaning effect of scrubbing does not penetrate into the carpet padding, and in fact makes the problem worse by forcing the urine further down into the carpet.

To remove pet urine smell you have penetrate into the carpet without driving the problem deeper.

Eventually after several carpet cleaning attempts using different products you may find a combination that appears to work, but even here there can be problems. Forcing the urine so deep into the carpet that you cannot smell it as strongly can actually cause more problems. This is because some of the urine still remains, encouraging the growth of bacteria. Later when you vacuum you then blow these germs into the air.

In addition, the chemicals used to “clean” the stain out can themselves remain in the carpet. If not removed, these chemicals often bond with dirt, creating further stains in your carpet.

Carpet Cleaning And Bugs

We have one more topic about pets and carpets that you may want to consider. Pets often have their own little hangers-on, and when fleas, ticks, and other little critters find their way into a building bugs often find their way into carpets, where some of them can lay eggs. These eggs later hatch, bringing a fresh wave of problems.

Commercial Steam Team uses a powerful direct-drive carpet cleaning machine that heats the water to 270 degrees before it gets pumped into the carpet. This is hot enough to cook fleas and ticks and their eggs. When the water is then extracted the dead bugs come out of the carpet and into our holding tank, which does -not- get re-used. You could say that hot water extraction carpet cleaning and bugs don’t get along.
