Dog and Cat Urine and Odor Removal
Missoula residents love their pets. I happen to be a dog lover myself. Probably about 75% of my customers are pet owners so its inevitable that I run into pee problems every day.
Treating pet urine issues is done on a case by case basis. There are many factors that go into urine cleaning that include: animal size, age, breed, diet and illnesses such as kidney problems.
If you have a new puppy or small toy dog then the urine is mostly likely on the surface and clean up is relatively easy. I can get most urine out of a carpet with just a standard carpet cleaning.
Now big dogs are a different story, big bladders mean big problems. If a large dog empties its bladder on one area of a carpet then it mostly soaked into the pad. This requires a deep cleaning treatment.
Deep Cleaning Treatment:
First, I saturate the area with a special solution that is made for urine and odor removal. For a 1 x 1 square foot area I will pour at least one half gallon onto the carpet. I want to make sure it soaks through the carpet and into the pad. I then let it sit for 10 minutes.
Second, I suck it back up with a special tool called a “Water Claw”.
Third, I soak and agitate the area with an odorcide product that destroys all odors by encapsulating the molecules.
Fourth, the odorcide (along with excess pee and bacteria) is extracted out of the pad and carpet.
Fifth, the area is completely rinsed with fresh water.
Finally all the rinse water is sucked out of the pad and carpet leaving you will a completely sanitized carpet and pad.
Sometime a deep cleaning is not enough because the urine has soaked all the way to the floor boards or concrete. In this case we would need to pull the carpet, replace the pad and seal the sub floor.
This will usually take care of the problem. Now it should be noted that in some rare cases (usually with cat urine), the entire carpet and pad will need to be replaced. It just depends on the quantity and severity of the mess.
If you have pet urine issues give me a call to see what works best for you.
