Living with pets is certainly a joy, but can also be a challenge. Accidents can happen even with the best trained pets. Below are some tips to deal with fresh pet accidents.
After time and repeated accidents in the same place, an odor is likely to develop.
Repeated accidents in the same spot will result in the urine penetrating through the multiple layers of material. For example, when a dog is marking his territory.
Larger dogs may soak through multiple layers in only one accident. In the most severe cases, the urine will saturate into the sub-floor underneath the carpet pad.
Our hot water etrxaction process is a deep rinsing process. Minor pet odor problems that are limited to the face yarn of the carpet may be removed by cleaning, along with the application of a topical deodorizing treatment.
If the urine has soaked through the carpet backing and is now into the carpet pad, it may be removed with our "sub-surface" extraction process. Using specialized tools connected to our truck mounted cleaning system, we can flood the contaminated area with fresh hot water. The water is then vacuumed out, using the powerful vacuum from our truck mounted cleaning system. Drying time for the affected area is normally less than 24 hours.
With severe pet odor problems, the urine has made its way into the sub floor. If the affected area is carpet only, meaning no walls, baseboards, furniture or drapes, it can still be removed. However, it may require additional steps including:
If the affected area includes walls, baseboards, furniture or drapes, the effort required to remove the odor becomes greater. Replacement of baseboards or drywall may be required to completely remove the odor.
Severe odor problems left untreated over long periods of time can be very challenging. Eventually, the urine odor is absorbed into all the many different porous surfaces in your home. To deal with this condition, Dalworth offers a gas deodorizing process that fills the entire interior space of the home.
E.O.N Gas is a powerful oxidizing gas that fills the entire interior space when used. It can neutralize a wide range of organic odors, including urine. It does require the premise be un-occupied for at least 12 hours. It leaves no toxic residue as the gas quickly breaks down into inert ingredients. It leaves a mild temporary scent of chlorine.
Stains from urine vary in appearance, from a barely noticeable light yellow to dark brown spots. With the proper treatment, most urine stains can be eliminated, but not always. Sometimes urine stains simply cannot be removed from the carpet fiber, regardless of how it may be treated.
Dalworth is confident that we can improve, if not fully remove, pet odor and stains from your carpet and upholstery. We can guarantee complete removal of pet odor in most circumstances, providing the customer is willing to incur the cost of the remediation steps that are necessary. These steps vary depending on the condition of the affected area. An inspection of the area must be made first, in order to produce an estimate of the cost.
For most pet owners, the challenges that come with having a pet in the home are worth the benefit. With the right system in place, Dalworth can help keep pet odors in check, even with repeated accidents occurring in the same area. Use the following team approach with Dalworth.
The cost of a guaranteed odor removal process may not be worth it if you intend to keep your pet in your home. If so, the pet odor management approach may be a better option.
