As a carpet cleaner in Tampa FL I have cleaned just about every type of carpet stain there is, but pet urine is always the biggest challenge. There is no easy way to remove pet urine from carpet. It not only damages the carpet but the pad underneath.
As pet urine dries it crystalizes and corrupts the carpet fibers and the padding. Although some of the urine crystals can be removed with a good carpet cleaning, preferably with hot carbonated extraction, there will always be some remaining urine crystals in the carpet pad.
As you can see from the before and after pictures above the topical urine can be removed, cosmetically repairing some of the urine damage. However the carpet pad still contains dried urine crystals that have not been removed.
The best system for removing pet urine from carpet is Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment, otherwise known as P.U.R.T. This pet urine removal treatment does not rely on enzymes to remove the urine, instead it uses oxygen. By oxygenating the urine crystals it destroys the odor molecules that are released when the urine absorbs moisture from the air.
So how does Chem-Dry of Tampa FL treat the pet urine in your carpet pad? We soak the urine spots with PURT so that the pad underneath is treated as well. If the carpet pad is not treated the odor is not going away. Once the pad has been treated the PURT immediately starts to break down the odor molecules. Over the next 24-36 hours the odors are off gassed. When the carpet and pad dries the urine odor is gone for good.
It’s my goal to make your home a healthy place to live by ridding your soft surfaces of pet contaminants.
