Pet Odor Control
Pee is for Problem!! Urine is one of the most common pet problems yet it continues to be overlooked. Urine compromises the quality of air in one’s living environment, ruins carpeting and upholstery and can aggravate asthma and allergies. It is important to note that once your pet has gone to the bathroom on your carpets or upholstery, they are now damaged.
The urine is absorbed into the layer underneath the carpet called the carpet pad. It creates a warm breeding ground for bacteria. While you might have cleaned the “mess” on the carpet, the urine has already saturated the carpet pad and will remain there until professionally treated. This is why, even if there are no visible stains, the urine odor remains. Additionally, home owners become immune to the pungent smell of urine so they don’t notice it that much but don’t be fooled… your guests -will- notice.
The strength of the smell varies depending on the level of moisture in the air. Despite Fido not having gone to the bathroom indoors since last winter, if there is urine in your pads, you will definatley notice it when the weather becomes more humid. Warmer temperatures and increased humidity reactivate the bacter that feed on urine. Ammonia gases, which cause the familiar nauseating odor, are also released into the air.
Urine and pet dander are both examples of air contaminants that can affect your health. Overlooked symptoms of indoor air contamination include stuffy nose, nasal drip, coughing and sneezing, fatigue, headaches, allergies, sinus infections and difficulty sleeping.
Pet urine removal is tricky. Many people do not realize that urine in the carpet pad needs to be -removed-… Simply treating the superficial stains on the upper layer carpet fibers will not help the lingering odor or compromised indoor air quality. Coastal Chem-Dry’s proprietary P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) is a non-toxic solution that breaks down the urine crystals and removes odors from the carpet, allowing you to have pets AND clean carpets.
