We all love our pets, but occaisionally accidents happen. Simply deodorizing the affected area is not the solution. I make every effort to remove as much of the source as possible using techniques, solutions and hardware to tackle the affected area with an acceptable treatment.
A pre-inspection of the areas affected is essential to provide accurate assesment of the treatment and cost.
Several factors weigh into this assesment, including the pet size, medications, gender and species.
In severe cases the carpet may be pulled up and the underlying pad replaced and the hard floor sealed. I recomend replacement of the carpet when this degree of contamination is detected.
Odor in homes and buildings arises from many sources that may include pet urine, disaster contaminates, moisture problems or just plain soil. Routine cleaning automatically removes the sources of general soiling odors.
Pet urine decontamination normally requires more specialized deodorizing techniques. 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 (if possible).
- Cleaning affected surfaces and materials.
- Recreating the conditions of penetration with appropriate counteractants.
- Sealing restorable surfaces as necessary.
