Over 270,000 dogs were adopted in 2020, many due to the COVID-19 pandemic and people being home more often than ever before. At one point, shelters were left empty as pets found their FURever home thanks to so many people adopting new furry friends.
Given the chance to bring a pet into your home is a great opportunity. However, with any pet, even the most behaved, there will be little accidents every now and then. That’s where we come in. At KleenRite, we make sure that you can still enjoy your pets and keep a clean house at the same time.
Have you ever cleaned up a mess from your pet and it just never seems to come up? When you clean up a mess, typically you are only getting the surface. This means that, while it appears as though you are cleaning up the mess, a good portion of it has probably sunk into the backing and the padding of your carpet. The reason is due to a high concentration of salts, bacteria and other organic matter, pet urine forms a greasy residue that is incredibly resistant to ordinary cleaners. What are your options when it comes to a pet mess?
- Completely remove the padding and clean the carpet from the back and then put it back down
- Let the trusted professionals at KleenRite handle it for you (here’s a hint…let us handle it for you).
Not All Stains Are Created Equal
Now not all stains are created equal and for the more extreme messes, “wicking” may be occurring. Urine can create a reservoir that dries out. Once that reservoir becomes wet again from cleaning, the carpet pile acts as a wick, and the moisture gets pushed deeper and deeper into the carpets. It only takes about ¼ a cup of urine to penetrate the carpet and once the mess dries, the reservoir is formed. Even one or two accidents can lead to the need for professional cleaning.
With at least another month, if not longer, of hot and humid weather it’s likely you’ll begin to see and smell pet messes in your carpet. In order to combat this, we always come prepared with a moisture probe and black lights to make sure we have completely cleaned your carpet and didn’t miss a single mess.
When you call us in to clean up a pet mess, we bring only the best equipment to take care of the problem. We use special cleaners and an incredibly powerful vacuuming system that removes all pet urine, stains and odors from not only the carpet, but also the padding, carpet backing and the face fibers all in one step.
We understand how important pets are to many people and would never suggest not getting one (or two or three). But the biggest casualty of owning a pet can be your carpet. Not only will it get stained, but also the smells will permeate your home and turn into a major problem. That’s why getting your carpet cleaned (or at least checked out) regularly is so important and Kleenrite wants to be the service that provides that. Owning a pet comes with a lot of responsibilities. Leave the carpet cleaning responsibilities to us.
