Ask the Carpet Cleaner: What is P.U.R.T.®?
June 08, 2021
As much as you love your pet, the accidents your furry friend makes can be particularly tough on your carpet. When a pet accident occurs, you may not know what type of carpet cleaner to reach for.
After a long process of trial and error, you’re likely to find that few live up to the claims of totally getting rid of the smell and stain. Instead, most pet carpet cleaners simply mask the smell rather than resolving the problem at its source.
The revolutionary P.U.R.T.® cleaning process from Chem-Dry is different. P.U.R.T. stands for Pet Urine Removal Treatment. This process is designed to actually destroy pet urine odors forever, not disguise them temporarily.
With the help of our professional carpet cleaners, you can finally enjoy your home – and your pet – while knowing that your carpet is cleaner and healthier than before.
Understanding the Consequences of Pet Accidents
If left untreated, the odor from a pet accident can spread throughout your home. If you’ve dealt with pet accidents in the past, you know how unpleasant this smell can be, as well as what a pain it is to get rid of.
Furthermore, if you’re unable to fully eliminate odors from pet accidents, you may notice repeat accidents occurring in the same spot. The effects of such a cycle can have a major impact on your health and well-being, as well as the longevity of your carpet.
Cat and dog urine stains the fibers of fabrics and carpets, penetrating deep down to also contaminate the surface underneath. For this reason, trying to clean your carpet as you normally would simply won’t do the trick.
Waiting for the urine to dry won’t make the problem go away, either. Once the liquid has evaporated from the stain, urine crystals will remain. It is within these crystals that those pungent odors are concentrated. Thus only by removing these crystals will you ever fully rid yourself of the underlying problem.
P.U.R.T. Carpet Cleaner in Action
Our proprietary P.U.R.T. process attacks urine crystals at the molecular level to eliminate the issue once and for all. Plus, this process can be used on a range of affected materials, from carpets and area rugs to upholstered furniture. Rather than trying to live with the issue or considering throwing out your favorite soft furnishings, you can renew and refresh them with the help of Chem-Dry.
P.U.R.T. is a multi-step process that effectively deals with the negative effects of accidents you know about as well as those that may have slipped past you. Here’s how it works:
- Ultraviolet Inspection
One of our trained carpet cleaners will do a full inspection of your carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture utilizing a specialized ultraviolet flashlight. The beam from this flashlight will reveal the residues of pet accidents and odor deposits, even those that are invisible to the naked eye.
- Deep Cleaning
The next step we’ll take is to clean your carpet with Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE), our revolutionary carpet cleaning process. Through the power of carbonation, HCE releases dirt, oil, and urine crystals from the fibers of your carpet without using gallons of water or soapy solutions.
- P.U.R.T. Application
After using Hot Carbonating Extraction, we’ll apply P.U.R.T. to each affected area to readily eliminate stubborn pet urine odors. This product sinks deep into the carpet pad, targeting odors as it goes. It will continue breaking down odor-causing elements for 24-36 hours. You’ll be left with a cleaner carpet that looks great and smells clean. It will also provide much-needed peace of mind about the health of your home.
A Carpet Cleaner with Health-Boosting Power
A recent study by an independent laboratory performed multiple tests of the P.U.R.T. process to assess its effectiveness in the categories of stain and odor removal. The study revealed that P.U.R.T. eliminates 99.9% of cat and dog urine odors from carpets.
