Pet Odor Treatment and Removal
Owning a pet is wonderful, enriching part of life… except for those occasional moments where it’s not. You understand all to well that sudden panic of waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of your dog… well, you know. Or that time when you went away on vacation for a week and came back only to find out that your dogs went ballistic on your living room carpets. Any way you look at it, pets are pretty much your carpet’s worst enemy. Don’t worry, that’s where we come in. You see, most other companies just do a traditional carpet cleaning and deodorizing. While this is may offer some slight relief, the scent comes back and you’re back looking for someone who can actually solve the problem. Often times you need something more to actually get the smell out of your carpet. We are armed with all the most modern technology, solutions, and know how to effectively eliminate pet odors regardless of the severity of the issue.
The Anatomy of a Carpet Pet Stain and Odor Problem
Here’s the issue – when your pet has an accident on the carpet, it bleeds through the carpet fibers. It also then bleeds through the backing, into the pad. Sometimes, urine can even penetrates into the subfloor. Stain resistant pads, such as stainmaster, can sometimes help avoid pet urine penetrating all the way to the sub floor. This can sometimes make something like dog pee removal easier, but it’s not a sure thing.

Removing dog pee from carpet is a challenge. Removing cat pee is even tougher. We follow a 3 stage pet-specific carpet cleaning approach to effectively remove pet urine from carpets. Here’s what the best carpet cleaning companies for pet stains (of which we are one) can do, that a home owner can’t:
Three Stage Pet Stain and Odor Control Process
Stage 1: Pet Stain and Odor Pre-Spray, Hot Water Extraction, Post Treatment
This process works well for probably half of the stains we encounter. Surface stains without a ton of liquid usually respond well. Examples being dog poop removal, pet vomit removal, small dog urine removal etc.
- We first apply a pet specific pre-spray to the area. This is used as a high quality pet odor neutralizer. We allow this to work for 5-10 minutes
- Next, We utilize our truck mounted carpet cleaning machine to perform a full hot water extraction (steam cleaning) of the area with a specific rinse. The purpose of this is to thoroughly rinse as much pet stain color and odor causing material from the carpet.
- Lastly, an a follow up treatment to the carpet is done to ensure all of the stain is removed and any remaining odors are eliminated.
Stage 2: Flooding and Rinsing
When there are more advanced pet stains – perhaps a large dog peed on the carpet, or a pet has been using the same area frequently to relieve itself, we need to take things to the next level.
- We utilize a special tool called a Water Claw that has been modified to both flood the area with pet odor neutralizer. Multiple cycles of flooding and rinsing are utilized to remove as much material as possible from the carpet. Through the numerous rinse cycles, we also clean the underlying carpet pad.
- We follow up using the process in stage 1.
This is a specially modified Water Claw tool. This tool allows us to safely flood the area with specially treated water. Simultaneously, we can also extract all of the water and pet urine from the carpet and pad.
Stage 3: Carpet Pad Replacement and Kilz Treatment
For the most significant pet stain carpet cleaning, replacing the carpet pad and possibly treating the subfloor is necessary.
- Pull back the carpet and clean both sides of the carpet – both the front side and the backing.
- Cut out the area of the carpet pad that is saturated in urine and replacing it with a new piece of pad.
- All areas are treated with odor neutralizers and special cleaning solutions.
- If necessary, Kilz can be applied to the subfloor material to seal in any pet odors left from dog urine or cat urine. Typically this is not needed for dog pee removal, but for cat pee removal, where the scent is more pungent, it often can be.
- Allow the carpet to dry and then reinstall the carpet. Stretch and tuck the carpet to return to a professionally installed look.
