Homeowners know that once pet odors get into carpet and upholstery fibers, it’s very difficult to get them out. Guaranteed Carpet has a higher success rate than most other Sarasota carpet cleaning companies- on average, around 80-90%, and is large due to how long the stain has been in the fiber. Pet urine can cause permanent damage to textiles and create an unhealthy living environment if not removed promptly.
Pet urine is in a neutral state when it is first introduced to your carpet or fabric, and is very easy to remove while it is still fresh. Once dried, the urine turns to alkaline, which is why it emits the odor of ammonia, and becomes more difficult to remove. If pet urine is left in the fibers of your carpet or upholstery for months, it can permanently change the dye structure of fabric, causing it to begin to deteriorate.Clean urine spots immediately to prevent permanent staining. Guaranteed Carpet is sometimes able to due the stained spot at an additional cost.
Along with pet urine stains comes odors. Guaranteed Carpet uses enzymes and professional-grade deodorizers to treat urine. There is a small extra charge for each quart of deodorizer that must be used. Using a special urine detector, your carpet technician will pinpoint exactly where they urine deposits are; then, they will spray enzymes on the affected areas, which actually eat the urine bacteria. These enzymes are also for sale for use in-between cleanings, should you need to use them.
Urine stains are the only stain that Guaranteed Carpet is unable to guarantee the removal of. The stains may be permanent, although they usually offer a very good chance of removal.
