Pet Odor Removal Questions
Many store-bought products give the appearance of cleanliness, but only cover up the dog urine. To fully remove old dog urine stains, the Chem-Dry process breaks down the source of the contamination and tackles even the parts of the stain that you can’t see.
The only way to properly eliminate the smell of dog urine is to completely remove it, rather than simply masking it. Using a Pet Odor Extinguisher or spot cleaner will quickly and thoroughly remove stubborn dog urine odors, but a Pet Urine Removal Treatment is often the only way to completely eliminate any trace of dog urine.
Yes, a thorough professional cleaning is the best way to remove dog and other pet urine stains from your carpets.
Traditional steam cleaning saturates your carpet with an excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. So you’re left with wet carpets for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. Plus the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster.
Chem-Dry’s process is different. We employ millions of microscopic bubbles to explode dirt from deep in your carpet fibers, which is why we only need to use a fraction of the water that typical steam cleaning uses. After the carbonation releases and lifts the dirt, our high powered equipment extracts the dirt and moisture from the carpet.
