Why Are Pet Urine Stains And Odors So Difficult to Remove?

To fully appreciate the effectiveness of our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®), it is important to understand why pet stains and odors can be so difficult to remove. When pet urine seeps into the carpet, padding, or subfloor, it can be challenging to completely eliminate the stain and odor using traditional cleaning methods or store-bought carpet cleaners. P.U.R.T.® is specifically designed to target and remove these deep-seated stains and odors.

When a pet accident occurs, it’s important to clean up the moisture as soon as possible. Some homeowners might resort to using store-bought cleaners or even popular household remedies like baking soda or hydrogen peroxide to tackle the stains. However, these techniques can jeopardize fragile carpet fibers, potentially accentuating the stain instead of eliminating it.

While you may consider calling a steam cleaning service to remove pet stains and odors, it is important to know that the steam cleaning method may not be as effective as you might hope. Steam cleaning relies on a large volume of water, which can actually push the urine crystals deeper into the flooring instead of flushing them out. This can result in the permanent setting of urine odors and stains, creating a significant problem for your home.

At Clean Living Chem-Dry, we have developed the Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®) specifically to address this issue. Our process targets the urine crystals and breaks them up, releasing them from the carpet fibers to effectively remove pet stains and odors. 

How Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaners Remove Pet Stains

The trick to removing stains is to destroy the chemical compounds that create these stains and their telltale odors. In the case of stains and smells related to pet accidents, that source is generally microscopic urine crystals and other residual matter residing deep within your carpet. 

These substances can be difficult or impossible to remove using a conventional approach. However, you can count on our time-tested P.U.R.T. process to carefully target and effectively lift away pet urine crystals from deep within your carpet. 

The first step in this process is to find all of the pet stains. Because urine deposits can be hard to spot with the naked eye, our team works with an ultraviolet light to uncover pet stains you might not even know about that could be adding to the unpleasant smell in your home. 

Next, we leverage our Hot Carbonating Extraction process (called HCE) to penetrate deep into carpet fibers and lift up urine crystals that are already loose. The HCE process also removes any liquid that is worsening the stain’s appearance, and any dirt or other grime in the carpet.

Finally, our carpet cleaners apply the specialized P.U.R.T. product, which works over 24 to 36 hours to break down stubborn stain- and odor-causing matter that is left behind in the carpet.
