Why does it seem like accidents always happen on the carpet? Your first reaction might be to remove as much of the solid waste as you can and then use soap to clean up the rest.
If you’re a pet owner, you probably have a big red bottle of soap or another “miracle” cleaner you bought at the grocery store. But having been in the professional carpet cleaning business for decades, we can tell you that these store-bought solutions can actually make the problem worse.
The truth is: Your big red bottle of carpet soap isn’t very effective at all. In fact, you’ve probably noticed that foaming suds appear on the carpet as you scrub. This leaves behind a sticky residue that will attract even more dirt and enlarge the area. Always beware of “miracles” in a bottle. Too much oxidizer will bleach out your carpet and can harm your pet’s skin.

The 3 Levels of Pet Urine Contamination
A general rule of thumb: If you see a urine stain on your carpet, it’s generally three times the size in the carpet padding. This is because your carpet padding is essentially a giant sponge. Still, carpet thickness, type of padding and other variables will determine the extent of damage. The section of affected carpet padding must be either cut out and replaced with new padding, or a subsurface extraction tool with urine-destroying chemicals must be used to remove the urine from the pad.
If your carpet is more than 20% contaminated with pet urine, it’s going to be a loss, and we highly recommend replacement. Find out what customers are saying about our cutting-edge process and five-star service! You can also Book Online to schedule your pet urine removal service!
