Our Three Steps for Removing Pet Odor from Carpets

9/13/2021 (Permalink)

As a homeowner, property manager, or new tenant one of the worst things you can find on your property is the smell of pets. Pet urine, and especially cat urine, is one of the most notorious smells for its terrible stench along with the difficulty in removal. Here are the steps we take when trying to remove those unpleasant odors from your home.

Deep carpet cleaning with deodorizer

If pet odor is in the carpet, the first thing that should be done is clean the carpets. Adding a deodorizer agent will help to break down the molecules that cause the smell. Using our powerful truck-mounted steam cleaners, we are able to remove dirt, hair, and stains to help eliminate the smell from the carpet.

Ozone machines

Using an ozone machine, also known as an ionizer or ionizing machine, we are able to release ozone molecules into the air, which break down contaminants in the air such as odors. This process breaks down the actual molecules causing odor rather than trying to cover it up or remove the odor.

Carpet Replacement

If the above steps are done and the pet odor is still in the air, we may look at carpet replacement at that point. We have an in-house team of remodel and reconstruction experts who can replace a small section or an entire room of carpet. Using lab analysis, we can match a carpet sample to the exact manufacturer, and have it replaced to get the exact look you need and enjoy.

Although nobody ever wants to find pet odors in their home, we are Minot’s local experts at odor removal and will help you to get your property smelling fresh as new!

What is air duct cleaning and why should we have it done?

What is lurking in your vents?

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

If not properly installed, maintained and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the air of your commercial business. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
