Who doesn’t love a good do-it-yourself project? Accomplishing a task that once seemed difficult while learning a new skill is especially satisfying. Plus, it helps to save money on household projects. However, there’s one job that—when left only to DIY methods—poses significant risks in your home: pet urine stain and odor removal.
Here’s why pet stains require more than a quick clean if you want to have a healthy home.
Risks Of Only Removing Pet Urine And Odors Yourself
While it’s wise to spot clean an area immediately when your pet has an accident, it’s important to know that some at-home cleaning methods can actually make the problem worse.
The reason is that often too much moisture and cleaning solution is deposited onto carpet, and cleaners are used that contain toxic chemicals which are harmful to your family and pets. It’s also because while do-it-yourself methods may remove visible surface stains, odor isn’t eliminated at the source but remains trapped deep within carpet and in the padding underneath.
Here’s why: when pet urine dries, the odors aren’t gone forever. In fact, acidic, potent, odor-causing crystals are left behind—as well as harmful bacteria. These crystals will continue to become more and more pungent over time and illness-causing bacteria will continue to accumulate, putting your family at risk.
Smelly odor crystals can only be removed completely through a pet urine removal treatment.
Benefits Of Professional Pet Stain Removal
It’s best to choose a carpet cleaning company that specializes in pet urine and odor removal, like Omega Chem-Dry. Look for cleaning solutions and methods that are green certified—meaning better for the environment—and non-toxic for the sake of your family and pets.
Chem-Dry’s unique Pet Urine Removal Treatment breaks down these odor-causing crystals and bacteria and whisks them away using Hot Carbonating Extraction. This method is effective, safe, and uses 80% less water than steam cleaners. That means there will be limited interruption to you busy schedule due to faster dry times and the highest quality service.
