Where is The Pet Urine Smell Coming From?

Let us be clear and explain what you see on your carpets is not what it looks. Pet accidents are like an iceberg. They are small on the top but huge on the bottom. When your dog or cat has an accident all the urine goes through the carpet and pad when it gets to the subfloor it will spread out and the pad will absorb all the liquid, for this reason, you don’t see. This process occurs under the carpet. Many Times your subfloor( the wood under the padding) will also absorb a lot of urine and it can hold the smell for a long time.

Our Pet urine odors and spot removal process is also combined with our carpet cleaning service when it’s needed, it’s also combined with our oriental rug cleaning services

Pet Stain Removal Louisville

Pet Stain removal Louisville? Don’t worry we have you covered. At the time urine is first deposited onto your floor as well as fabric, it has a pH of nearly 5 or 6, this is on the acid side of the pH Scale. It certainly is easier to remove properly when it is fresh. At the time it dries it turns “alkaline” or to a high pH between 10 to 12 on the scale and becomes challenging to eliminate. This warm acid state of the urine offers a perfect multiplying ground for bacteria, which will develop very quickly.

Pet Stain and Odor Removal

In this primary acid state, the urine begins to oxidize and then react with the rug or carpet to create a color change( stain on your carpet), which may become permanent if the urine is not extracted right away. Some of these colors alteration can be accredited to the strong ammonia that develops due to the fact urine passes through a bacterial and chemical change. If left for days or weeks, determined by the fabric or floor type, this will transform the dye structure, therefore causing permanent staining. Even when the soluble build-up is removed, the damage to the dye structure possibly could already be done. At Rodriguez Carpet Cleaning we have steps and procedures that follow to work on those pets stain. We can not guarantee 100% the removal of the stains but our success rate is high.

Carpet Pet Urine Removal Louisville KY

There are two sources of odors associated with urine. The first comes from bacteria that grow abundantly in dark warm places with a never-ending food source. A pet can feed the bacteria daily! This bacteria growth and breakdown of the urine creates amino acids.

These complex organic compounds will often work deep into the fibers to a point of becoming part of the fiber. This can present a challenging situation. The waste materials and gases from the decomposing urine create an unpleasant odor. When dried urine is re-moistened, it gives off ammonia gas. If smelled once it is seldom forgotten.

The second source of the odor is a chemical odor that is present even when the bacteria have been killed. This explains the reason that more than sanitizing is necessary to neutralize odors from urine. Urine also presents additional odor problems when the relative humidity is high. The salts and crystals that are left behind as the urine dries are hydrophilic and draw water to them. Dried urine is often easy to smell in the humid months because the salts attract the moisture, the moisture evaporates putting out a greater proportion of odorous ammonia gas. You must get rid of the urine salts in and under the carpet to get rid of the odor. That’s why cleaning existing urine spots WILL NOT remove any associated odor. In fact, it could INCREASE the odor in the air space for a temporary period of time

Do-It-Yourself Pet stain and odor Removal Louisville

The best tool to have is a small one-gallon wet vac or small spot removal machine. A small wet vac can be purchased for under $30.00. We recommend a small machine because the more convenient, the more likely you are to get it out for an accident.

If you can get the urine up while it is fresh you will have a better chance of 100% removal. Simply suck the urine right out of the carpet. Then apply some enzymes and let it sit a few minutes. Then pour a measuring cup of warm water on the spot and suck it out to rinse the carpet. Always dry the carpet as much as possible and never scrub or rub the carpet. This will distort the face fiber and break down the fiber protection and allow for easy staining.

You can mix 1 part white distilled vinegar with 2 parts water and apply it to the spot, rinse with warm water, and wet vac. Do not use the vinegar on fresh spots as the acid from the vinegar cannot counter the acid from fresh urine. The vinegar works best after 24 hours when the urine has become alkaline.

The Best Cleaning Agents For Urine Odor Removal

Enzymes are the best cleaning agent for urine, vomit and feces. An enzyme is the only cleaning agent that actually eats up the bad bacteria. For the best results use an enzyme spotter after you have rinsed the carpet, especially if the spot is not a fresh one. We recommend Nature’s Miracle, which can be purchased at any local pet store. Always read the directions before use!

Products to Avoid for pet odor removal.

Try to stay away from products with high pH such as ammonia, Resolve and oxygen bleaches. These products will leave the carpet with a residue and in a high pH state, which will enable the carpet to attract dirt like a magnet. In some instances the use of the wrong product can cause the urine stain to be permanent. Please call Rodriguez Cleaning Services  first if you are not sure about a product you may want to try.
