Atlanta Carpet Cleaning - Atlanta's pets stain removal experts.
We often treat them like family members. But if you're a pet owner, you are probably aware of how pet stains happen. Just when you're not looking, your house pet has an "accident" and your once-lovely carpet or furniture has been "decorated" with a pet stain. And, no less serious a problem is the accompanying pet stain odor.
We can assist you with pet stain removal so that your stained carpets and upholstery are looking and smelling better than ever.
Our cleaning specialists use sophisticated pet stain removers that zap out pet stains without damaging your valuable carpets and furniture. When you are rid of pet stains and odors, you can once again feel proud and totally confident inviting guests into your home.
The first step you must take is to train your pet not to soil these areas again. Then you must remove pet stains.
OK, you can sometimes hide a pet stain. But pet odor is another matter. Long after your pet's original "accident", the accompanying foul odor can linger. There's also the problem of pets that mark out a favorite spot in your home and come back there again and again-resulting in a lingering and unpleasant aroma.
You should handle pet odors immediately after they occur, because they become harder to remove as time goes by. If you wait too long, you will have no choice but to turn to a professional cleaning service in order to get rid of disagreeable smells from your home.
Atlanta Carpet Cleaning uses advanced cleaning products that can eliminate urine and fecal odors from carpets and furniture. Some contain odor-busting enzymes that break down the source of the odor.

Identify the source of the pet odor
This seems like an easy task, right? But when you look for the pet stain, it might not be visible to you. Because pet odors don't automatically mean they are accompanied by an easily visible stain.
One way to find a spot is to actually get down on your hands and knees and sniff your way to the offensive odor. If this is inconvenient, there is a better method. Pet urine contains salts that are visible under black light. You can buy a cheap black light (for about ten bucks). Turn out all the lights in the room and close all curtains. Then you turn on the black light and start searching the carpet. Pet stains will shine when the black light is pointed at them.
Treat the odor
Now that you've identified the spot you can start treating it-but it might not be so easy. That's because urine sometimes soaks not only into the carpet, but all the way through to the backing, the padding, and sometimes even the floor beneath.
If this is the case, you cannot simply wipe the spot away. You will have to take a trip to the pet store and buy an enzyme spotter. This enzyme solution will actually eat the proteins in the urine that the bacteria are feeding on. That's the key, because it's the bacteria that cause the odor. This protein eating process could take several days until the odor is gone.
"What if I can't remove the odor?"
Have you given the enzyme sufficient time to work? Occasionally the smell gets worse before it gets better. If your efforts haven't succeeded in doing the job, and the odor persists, you may have to call in a professional (contact us). Professional pet odor removal services have more powerful methods of treatment. Atlanta Carpet Cleaning for example will come to your home and give you a free inspection and estimate.
If the problem is severe, the professional service may have to replace padding, seal the sub floor, replace tack strip, or even install an ozone generator to neutralize the odor. Depending on the severity of your problem, they may have to replace affected padding, seal the sub floor, replace tack strip or even install an ozone generator to neutralize the odor.
Pay attention to your pet after treatment. Odors that cannot be detected by humans can be picked up by pets; they often return to the 'scene of the crime' and be a "repeat offender". If your pet does not usually have accidents in the house, visit your veterinarian. Your pet may have a urinary tract infection. There are other causes though; these include a change in environment (say, a recent move), a new addition to the household (a baby, another pet), or a change in diet. Animals occasionally respond to stress by making spots on your carpet.
