Here is a great animated video that explains how Chem-Dry's pet urine removal treatment (PURT) eliminates 99.8% of the urine odor from your carpet. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we use PURT to eliminate urine odor from your home. I have been using this service in my home for years and I can tell you there is nothing else in the professional carpet cleaning field that gives better results then PURT.
Most urine treatments are based on enzymes that speed the natural decay rate of the urine crystals in your carpet. Enzymes work great if the conditions are right. They rely on a catalyst reaction coupled with the right bacteria found in the urine. I'f that bacteria is not present the enzyme might not be effective for that treatment. Conditions like the animals health, biological make up , and diet might throw off the enzyme rendering it ineffective.
Chem-Dry's PURT does not rely on enzymes to eliminate urine odor. It uses a patented oxidizer that destroys the odor molecules in the urine crystals so they can no longer off gas ammonia, eliminating urine odor in your home. As for the bacteria in the carpet Chem-Dry of Tampa FL uses a sanitizing agent to kill 99.2% of the bacteria associated with the urine deposits. PURT is how you eliminate urine odor in your carpet. Chem-Dry is how you make your carpet healthy again. Our carpet cleaning service is drier, cleaner, healthier.
