Pets, smoke and red wine might be the three worst foes for any household carpet and yet we’re clearly not giving up our pets (or our wine) for the sake of a clean carpet, so what’s to be done?
While you can try in vain to clean up pet stains yourself, we recommend you save yourself the time and the hassle and call in the experts. You just aren’t able to get as deep a clean as a professional carpet cleaner can achieve and that is where the pet stain resides… deep down in the fibres of the carpet and the underpad.
Sometimes a DIY cleaning job might actually set the stains into the carpet rather than removing OR worse, you might just destroy your carpet fibres trying to get rid of the stain.
If you are trying to remove a pet stain or odor before you call the professionals, please DO NOT:
- Pet stains should be addressed right away – although we do like a good challenge.
- Always blot. Rubbing will ensure that the stain is ground deep into the fibres of the carpet and could actually make it near impossible to remove.
- Use chemicals that aren’t compatible with your carpet type and ALWAYS try a test patch before you commit to removing a stain in plain view. Your carpet is made of delicate fibres and the wrong chemical could compromise its integrity.
- This could compromise and damage carpet fibres weakening your carpet and hindering your ability to remove future stains and spots.
Beyond the stain itself, it’s the odor that often lingers after a pet accident. You can try to open the windows, spray deodorizers, sprinkle baking soda to absorb the smell, but that odor will likely remain or return over time. Those with pets, or those who have walked into a house with pets, probably know that smell well and know how hard it is to remove, even with immediate cleaning tactics.
Our carpet cleaning system’s powerful and effective hot water extraction reaches deep down into your carpet fibers and padding, loosening dirt, stains and odor-causing bacteria, removing it at its source. For those more difficult stains and odors, we can take cleaning to the next level with specialized solutions and techniques.
So don’t struggle in vain… call us first!
