We love our pets, and they are a big part of our families! However, did you know that pet urine in your carpet, rugs or upholstery furniture can create potent odors that cause respiratory issues? Here are some Halloween scary facts about pet urine and your carpet:

  • As soon as a pet urinates on the carpet, the warm acidic liquid immediately becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
  • The acidic urine begins to oxidize on the carpet fibers, creating a color change which is often permanent.
  • The urine spreads and gravitates down into the pad and sub-floor. It is important to determine where it has spread.
  • Once urine begins to dry, the moisture evaporates, and microscopic salts and crystals are formed and remain in your carpet, pad and floor.
  • The crystals and salts react to the humidity in the air. Any humidity level changes cause the crystals and salts to give off a heavier urine smell. This often occurs in the summer when it is humid and in the winter when the home heater is on.
  • Urine smells last for years in carpet. In order to eliminate the odor, the crystals and salts deposits must be permanently deactivated. Simple cleaning will not remove the urine odor.
  • Male animals urinate around perimeters and females urinate in open areas. Because they are creatures of habit, both often repeat in the same areas.

Eco Valley Chem-Dry uses a revolutionary process called Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.) specially formulated to eliminate the odor at the source, by exploding the urine crystals that cause the odors, so the smell is gone for good. We do not use perfumes to mask the smell, like some other products and services do, instead we are working to stop the smell at its source.
