Use a safe, store-bought enzyme cleaner for minor accidents.
There are tons of pet urine removal enzyme cleaners on the market. Some cleaners are made for hard surfaces and others for soft surfaces like carpets and rugs. Be sure to do your research to determine what enzyme cleaner will be safest for your pet and your home before you purchase one. We also recommend testing a small area of your carpet with the cleaner before using it to treat a large pet urine stain on a more visible part of your rug.
Get a professional carpet cleaning in Maple Grove for the most effective stain and smell removal.
If your carpet has years of stains and smells that need to be removed or store-bought solutions don’t seem to be working, it’s time to call carpet cleaners in Maple Grove, MN. During our pet urine removal treatment, we do a contamination inspection using UV to locate urine deposits in your carpets. From there, we’ll then apply a hot water rinse to extract most of the urine crystals. In severe cases, the carpet will be pulled back so the extent of the damage can be thoroughly evaluated, and then the carpet pad will be replaced. After that, an odor-blocking shellac may be applied to the sub-floor to prevent odors from returning in the future if necessary.
Once the flooring is prepped according to your specific needs, P.U.R.T.® is applied heavily to the sub-floor, tack strip, carpet backing, and baseboards. The ingredients in P.U.R.T.® will continue to work over the next 24 to 36 hours, reacting with the urine and breaking down odor-causing components. The result will be fresh carpets virtually free of pet odors and stains!
Help your pet succeed by determining why accidents happen.
Take some time to discover why your pet keeps having accidents in your home. Make sure you’re taking your pet outside regularly so they have a chance to relieve themselves and practice proper training methods. Of course, if you have a puppy, these accidents will decrease over time. And if you have an elderly dog or cat, they may be struggling with health issues that cause accidents and your vet may be able to help ease these troubles.
