:: Below you will find more info on the different levels of urine contamination.
1. If the urine has penetrated the carpet backing and has contaminated the padding or the sub-floor then just cleaning the carpets and spraying on deodorizer probably will not fully eliminate the odor.
As you can see in the photos below the pet urine has soaked thru the padding and damaged the sub-floor. Without being able to look underneath the carpet to assess the damage there is no way of knowing how serious the damage is.
If there is a faint smell of pet urine and conditions indicate light soiling that has not penetrated the carpet backing then this measure is usually effective in removing the source of the odor.
We use standard cleaning procedures and apply a topical post-treatment of deodorizer. So if the odor causing bacteria is residing above the carpet backing this approach normally eliminates the source of the odor.
If it is suspected that the urine has soaked into the carpet backing but maybe hasn't penetrated the padding then this level will do a better job than the one above to get to and destroy the odor causing bacteria. We first treat the carpeting with a pet urine pre-conditioner and apply it heavily so that it reacts with the carpet backing.
We then perform standard cleaning procedures and after the cleaning is complete we then treat the carpeting with a topical post-treatment of deodorizer. This is the most effective yet least intrusive way of getting rid of the odor causing bacteria without actually have to disengage the carpeting to look at the sub-floor.
The photos above are of carpeting that was heavily soiled with pet urine. The urine penetrated the carpets, padding and actually penetrated the wooden sub-floor. This level of contamination requires first a sub-floor inspection to survey the extent of the damage. To correct this problem the contaminated padding needs to be replaced.
We also either treat or seal the sub-floor. We then treat the backing of the carpeting with a enzyme digestor. Finally we re-install and clean the carpeting and then apply a topical post-treatment of deodorizer.
