Pets are wonderful... of that there can be no doubt. The unconditional love that pets give their owners has enduring value. The thought of going through life without one's prize pet(s) seems unbearable.
The benefits of pet ownership are slightly offset by the sometimes-erratic behaviors and traits of individual pets. You have to take the good with the bad.
Pets do, however, leave their mark...
FUR! - Hair shedding and animal dander are allergens that contribute to asthmatic symptoms for many people. Pieces of pet hair firmly embed in carpets, rugs, furniture, and even draperies. It is virtually impossible to remove it all, but professional cleaning is recommended frequently to control the fur problem.
OILS! Pets secrete oils from their fur and paws that leave a residue on your carpets and flooring surfaces. This oily residue also penetrates deep into upholstered furniture, contributing to the accumulation of smelly, hard-to-clean soil deposits.
SMELLY ODORS! Many pet owners do not realize that their home has an odor problem because their sense of smell becomes acclaimed to the malodors over time. Guests can tell immediately if you have a pet unless you have been very diligent with cleaning. That's where we come in!
The oils from fur have a distinctive odor. Have you ever gone into someone's home that smells like "dog" or "cat"? All pets secrete an oily residue that gets on your furnishings.
Some animals literally use carpets as a bathroom! It is very unpleasant to think about it, but it is the truth. Most very young and old animals have "accidents". The trouble is, for every time you know they defecate or urinate on the carpet, they are probably going 2-3 times!
Urine is a menace to your furnishings because it destroys fibers and resists cleaning processes because of a waxy, sticky residue that is left after the moisture evaporates.
In many instances, the carpet is soaked with urine clear through to the back and pad. This is where the majority of contamination issues cause problems because it is impossible to remove the deeply embedded deposits from the surface without professional help. We have even seen cases where a pet has wiped and dragged its butt across the carpet, leaving a trailing fecal residue. It is very gross - but not keeping the carpet clean is even worse!
Even litter boxes can become the source of strong odors. They must be changed frequently or the odor can become overpowering.
So, now, after you've read all of this important information, there are two resolutions that can be used to solve any pet-related problems:
Option 1: EITHER GET RID OF OR DON'T OWN A PET.
Not an actual option! We certainly don't want any of our clients to do that to their pets, even if they've been with them for so long.
Option 2: EVALUATE THE CONDITIONS - You can't solve your pet stain without knowing the scope of the damage. You need a qualified professional to help you with this.
That is where "we" come in... we offer an evaluation service for FREE. We use special urine detection equipment to locate the spots and ascertain how severe the damage is.
