This video shows titled Removing Urine From Carpet shows how a professional carpet cleaner might take care of urine spots. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL, we take some similar steps to get rid of urine odors and stains in carpet. The video host is using a couple of different products to take specific issues associated with urine in the carpet. In the video, he peels back the carpet and shows the urine damage to the molding but he does not say whether or not he is treating the pad and the subfloor for urine damage.
At Chem-Dry of Tampa, we remove urine from carpet by treating each layer with our formulated pet urine removal treatment. We not only treat the carpet but the pad and the subfloor as well. If the urine has dried on the carpet then most likely it has traveled down to the subfloor and damaged every layer in between. It needs to be neutralized to ensure it does not continue to off-gas odors.
We get called to a lot of homes where a professional carpet cleaner tried removing urine from the carpet but was unsuccessful. The good news is that in 96% of those cases we were successful at removing urine from the carpet.
