You can have the best-trained pet in the world but accidents are still sure to happen. These pet accidents can take a serious toll on your carpet and upholstery – not to mention your nerves! Almost immediately, the acids in the pet urine or vomit start to react with the fibers and dyes of your carpet and upholstery. If not dealt with quickly, the pet stain can damage the fibers and cause the colors to change. To make matters worse, the pet stain often sinks through the carpet backing and into the padding where it can cause offensive odors that are tough to get out.
Don’t let pet stains get you down. With the help of Citrus Fresh Valencia professional pet stain and odor removal services, your carpet and upholstery can be restored to its original beauty!
How We Get Rid of Even the Worst Pet Stains
Citrus Fresh Valencia has been in the carpet cleaning business since 1994 and you can bet that we’ve encountered some tough pet stains over the years! Even in the worst cases, we’ve been able to get the offending stain out of the carpet or upholstery. What is our method? The truth is that we don’t have a set method. We know that each pet stain requires a unique approach to ensure the stain and odors are removed without damaging the carpet or surface in question.
To decide the best way to get rid of a pet stain, our Valencia carpet cleaning experts follow a certain process.
1) First, the carpet cleaning experts will locate all pet stains. Even if you know of the exact location of one pet stain, we will still check for others. Oftentimes, pets offend and the urine dries before owners even realize it is there. Cats are particularly guilty of urinating in hidden locations such as underneath couches.
2) Next, our team will figure out what type of pet stain is in question. Is it urine, vomit, feces, or a combination of the above? Is the stain from a cat or a dog? How old is the pet and is the pet taking any medications? All of this information can help us determine which cleaning solution is best for removing the pet stain.
3) Before removing pet stains from carpets or upholstery, the stain will be treated with a special formula which breaks down the acids in the stain. After the treatment, the stain will be removed using an enzyme cleaner. Enzyme cleaners not only get rid of visual evidence of the stain, but also kill any germs from the pet stain.
What about Old Pet Stains?
In most cases, our team at Citrus Fresh Valencia carpet cleaning can completely get out all pet stains. However, if the pet stain is very old, the acids in the stain may have had time to react with the dye in the carpet and cause permanent discoloration. Since acids can damage fibers, the pet stain may have even caused carpet backing and padding to rot.
A thorough cleaning can help remove much of the carpet discoloration and prevent further damage to the carpet. However, in really bad cases, some of the discoloration and damage may remain. In these tough cases, Carpet Fresh Valencia will help you figure out your options. You don’t necessarily have to replace your entire carpet! There are options available like dying the stained area or replacing the stained area with carpet swatches. Our carpet cleaning experts will help you figure out which option is best for your carpet and your budget.
