Odors in homes and buildings can come from many sources including pets, disaster contaminants, moisture problems or even just soiled carpets. Most odors can be removed through regular professional carpet cleaning, but pet urine odor is among the most stubborn and difficult odors to remove, and usually requires specialized deodorizing techniques available from a professional carpet cleaning.
Pet Odor Removal
We all love our pets, but sometimes accidents happen, leaving behind odors that just won’t go away. Pet urine odor is the most common problem homeowners with pets have. Stretch Cleaning & Restoration can help identify the area harboring the odor using a black light. When pets have accidents, the urine can penetrate the carpet, pad and subfloor, and the odor must be thoroughly removed from all these layers so your pet does not smell it and have another accident.
Our technicians use a special enzyme or oxidizing cleaner to remove the urine and it’s odor from the carpet, the padding underneath, AND the subfloor. The enzyme neutralizes the urine odor, eliminating it for good.
Removing Other Odors
Routine professional carpet cleaning automatically removes the sources of general soiling odors. By extracting soils, bacteria and other contaminants, the odor is removed as well, and your home will smell fresh and your carpets will be healthy.
To remove musty odor associated with moisture, ultimately it’s important to identify and correct the moisture (high humidity) intrusion problem. Odor associated with disaster contaminates (smoke, trauma events) requires highly specialized procedures and techniques.
Odor removal involves four general principles:
- Removing the source as soon as possible;
- Cleaning affected surfaces and materials;
- Recreating the conditions of penetration with appropriate counteractants;
- Sealing restorable surfaces as necessary
