Pet Urine and Odor Removal
Pet urine affects ph can cause permanent coloration damage to your carpets and fabrics. When urine gets trapped into the carpets it is acidic in nature, but as it dries it has an alkalizing affect. It is easier to remove right away because it matches the acidic nature of carpet. Once it dries it turns to alkaline on the pH scale and becomes much harder to remove. The urine begins to react with the carpet to yellowing color change, which can become permanent if you don't call TLC Carpet Care in Castle Rock. If left for weeks or months it will begin to oxidize the dye structure, causing permanent staining. Unfortunately even if all of the bacteria is removed by cleaning the damage to the dye structure may have already been done.
Pet odor can be complex as well. First bacteria begins to grow and feed off the urine in the backing of the carpets. This often attracts further soiling on the wet, sticky spot and begins to leave ammonia gasses behind. Also the organic waste materials from the decomposing urine often create an unpleasant smell. To make the problem even worse, when the carpet is cleaned, the urine is remoistened and it gives off a strong ammonia gas, this is a necessary evil thou. This happens because the urine salts under the carpet mix with the moisture used in cleaning, and its and indication that the dye off is working.
Therefore having a professional carpet cleaning company may get rid of the stain (if it hasn’t set into the fibers yet) and may lessen the odor if enough of the bacteria is removed. Also we have already noted, the odor will usually increase for a temporary amount of time before an applied enzyme treatment will work to neutralize it. This is what makes odor removal so difficult and usually cannot be guaranteed because of all the difficulties and variables.
The one way TLC Carpet Care guarantees the removal of pet stains and odors can be quite extensive. Remember the alkaline salt deposits need to be professionally removed and they often reside in the latex backing, carpet pad and even in the sub-floor.
