Can you remove pet odors and stains?
The problem with pet odor is that it can be much deeper than it appears on the surface. Pet urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet down to the padding. In more severe cases the urine can penetrate into the sub-floor beneath the padding. This creates a multi-layered problem.
Pet urine provides the growth of bacteria with will contribute to the worsening of the odor problem. This can also cause permanent color loss of the carpet fibers.
To eliminate this problem the urine needs be removed or neutralized from each of the layers effected. If the contamination is limited to only the face yarn of the carpet then the cleaning itself may effectively remove the odor. In more severe cases a urine neutralizer may be applied.
In the most severe cases, replacement of the carpet padding, treatment of the under-side of the carpet and the sub-floor may be required. Even replacement of the carpet, however, cannot guarantee complete removal of the odor.
Left untreated over a period of time pet odor can become absorbed into many of the porous materials in your home. Draperies, sheet rock, upholstered furniture, base-boards, even the concrete foundation are just a few of the materials that can absorb these odors.

What is that black stuff around the edges of my carpet?
This type of soiling is difficult to remove because the soil particles are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile, sometimes into the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can sometimes be achieved. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis. Be careful around the tack-strip on the edge of the carpeting, it could nick your fingers!
