Pet odor removal is never easy. By the time most of us find the urine spots in our carpet it has already dried. Once it's dried it's very difficult to remove. These shots are from a home in Tampa FL, before and after Chem-Dry of Tampa's pet urine removal service. Pet urine crystallizes as it dries making it very difficult to remove from carpet and padding underneath. A regular steam cleaning alone cannot remove pet urine from carpet. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we use a Pet odor removal treatment that is applied to the carpet and the carpet pad underneath. it's very effective at removing pet urine and the ammonia odor that is associated with it.
Once our pet odor remover is applied it has to stay wet for 24 hours so it can off gas all the ammonia in the carpet. Once it dries completely the pet odor is gone and wont return.
