Pet Concerns

You don’t have to live in an environment that is unhealthy for you and your family. 

We understand the love and friendship your pets bring to your family and just how much your dog or cat really means to you. But sometimes the messes they leave can cause extensive damage to your furniture and carpeting, not to mention the unsightly stains and strong odors. 

Let our trained professionals help you make some decisions regarding your pet issues. There may be an easier solution than you think!

Why are pet stains and odor so stubborn?

  • Animals often urinate when nobody’s looking and many spots go unnoticed.
  • More than 1/4 cup of urine will penetrate into the carpet’s backing and padding.
  • Once the urine dries, it forms a dehydrated reservoir that’s just waiting for moisture and humidity.
  • Once the summer months arrive with humidity and heat, the urine solids in your carpet are “activated,” and off-gas bacteria and ammonia create a very foul-smelling condition.
  • Urine spots are sometimes hard to detect. A moisture probe and black light are tools that a professional uses to locate spots.
  • Because of a high concentration of salts, bacteria, and other organic matter, urine forms a wax-like greasy residue that resists ordinary cleaning solutions.
  • In order to effectively remove urine from any carpet, all contaminated areas must be discovered and treated.

Kleenrite’s pet-odor treatment services

  • Black-light detection: Urine deposits can be seen easily with a black light. Request a black light inspection the next time KleenRite visits or call to schedule a free pet treatment inspection. Make sure to request the black light.
  • Simple deodorization: We can add an additive to our Residential Pre-Spray to help alleviate odors. This option is not a cure all for the problem and the odor could possibly come back. For more information on this product please call our office.
  • Odor & Stain Removal: With this option we will locate the urine spots whether with a black light or our moisture sensor. This is a powder application that we mix in a 5 gallon bucket with extremely hot water and pour directly onto the spots we have located. What this mixture does is soak not only into the carpet but in the pad as well breaking down the pet urine enzymes that are in there. These areas will stay wet longer than normal carpet cleaning but while they are wet the chemical is breaking down the enzymes to remove the odor. You have a better success rate doing this application process than you do the simple deodorization. There is an additional cost associated with this, but it can save you money from having to replace your carpet and pad. For more information please contact our office.
  • Full flooring decontamination: We will remove the carpet and pad, seal and treat the sub-floor, replace the old padding with new pad, reinstall the carpet, install a plastic barrier between the pad and carpet, and clean it with a saturation treatment. (We currently will have to subcontract the replacing of the pad and the reinstall of the carpet)
