When you think of pet odor removal most of us think of pet urine odors, but there are other pet odors that lurk in our homes. In these photos of a recent pet odor removal treatment in Tampa FL we remove the dark carpet spot caused by the home owners dog that liked to lay next to the bed. Along with the large dark spot on the carpet there was a musky dog smell, not from dog urine. The home owner said her dog liked to lay on the floor next to the dog bed and eventually this dark area developed.
This is something we run into quite a lot in Tampa FL. Dog fur has oils that easily transfer to most of the soft surfaces in your home. Those oils are a dirt attracting residue that are also a breeding ground for bacteria. The humidity in the air adds to the bacteria growth and the amplifies that musky odor. A good cleaning with soap and water can do a lot to remove some of the odor, but the odor from bacteria may remain.
The best way to remove this type of pet odor is to first sanitize the area and kill all the bacteria that's creating the pet odor. The next step is to clean the area with hot water and a small amount of detergent. I also recommend scrubbing it in to the carpet before drying it with a towel. If this doesn't remove the musky pet odor it's time to hire a professional carpet cleaner.
