Do your friends know you have a cat or dog, before the pet even waltz into the room? Can you carpet, rug, or upholstery pass the major test -The Sniff Test? Just because you have a pet doesn't mean your carpet, rug, or upholstery has to smell like him/her. Here are some tips to help you prevent these major problems.

 Tip One: Always clean up pet messes as quickly and thoroughly as possible. The longer it sits the more damage it will do to your carpet, rug, or upholstery. Always identify the odiferous areas of your carpet, if you are not sure where they are that okay. We can find them for you by using an ultraviolet light to illuminate the dried accidents.

Please note that the urine spot you see is only 20% of the area. Yes, that means 80% of the urine passes through the carpet. That's right, on to the pad and sub floor.

 Tip two: We will need to deep clean the problem area using a water extraction carpet cleaning machine, BUT not before we treat the areas with a disinfectant and/or enzyme product.Sprinkle an enzyme containing pet odor neutralizing powder. Pet odor neutralizing powders contain live bacteria and enzymes that digest odor-causing protein and bacteria, permanently removing it from the deepest fibers in your carpet. Alternatively, you can use borax powder or baking soda, but they are less effective in eliminating stubborn odors.

Please note that not all fibers react well with borax and baking soda

 Tip Three: These products also contain a mild cleanser that can help remove discoloration.

 Tip Four: Wash the treated areas.

 Tip Five: Reply any disinfectants and/or odor counteractants that may be needed.
If odor remains after you have treated the carpet with an enzyme odor neutralizer, repeat the treatment as needed to eliminate lingering odors.
Understand that in severe cases where the soiling has occurred for an extended period of time, you may need to replace the carpet padding.

  Avoid using household cleaners, ammonia and vinegar on urine stains. The strong smell may draw your pet back to the spot to cover the strong stuff with his own scent.

Steam-cleaning urine-stained carpeting can set stains and odors by bonding the protein into the fibers. Steam-cleaning is also beneficial in that it works on all carpet types.
