“Steam Me Up” can help with pet odors and stains

We understand that your pet can be your carpet’s worst enemy. When your pet leaves their mark on your carpet or upholstery, call “Steam Me Up Carpet Cleaning”.

Approximately 63% of households have some type of pet in them which is over 70 million homes. It isn’t always possible to be at home with them and even if you have designated areas where the pets are to do their business, you will find surprises. However, it doesn’t have to mean that your carpet is ruined and that you have to replace it.

Don’t assume that you have taken care of the problem on your own. The pet urine is able to deeply penetrate your carpets fast. This isn’t a surface stain but one that gets into the fibers as well as to the backing of the carpet. The fact that there are many layers that the urine affects is why those smells linger and bacteria can develop.

There are two types of pet soils; the newly deposited soil and the old, stale odor that secretes an offensive stench and has already penetrated the carpet fibers. These soils may not be obvious to the eye with a yellowish discoloration. Sometimes, a special  blacklight may be needed to find the exact area. Oftentimes, the surface problem that appears to be small is revealed to be a much larger problem because the pet contamination has gone down thru the carpet to the pad and sub-floor.    

Pet urine left unattended, can damage carpet in several ways. Moisture can weaken the layers of the carpet, allowing separation of the backing material and seam areas can be particularly damaged and can separate.

Another problem, especially with cats, is odor, Unless the cat urine can be completely removed, complete odor removal is unlikely. A number of products are available to combat odor. But they simply mask the odor, and the odor can reappear. Recently enzymes, available at pet stores and vet offices have been developed that are more effective; but the carpet cleaning professionals have access to the best enzyme and microbe products.

Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. It will create an unhealthy indoor living space especially for those families with small children.
