Why is My Carpet Smelling More Like Pet Urine with the Humidity?

Oops...I Did it Again!With the warmer weather and the increase in humidity, our carpets are releasing more odor from our pet’s accidents. With high heat, high humidity there are significantly more water molecules in the air. This allows the bacteria in urine crystals to become moist and reactivated.

Not only is it difficult to deal with a pet accident once one has occurred, but it’s also tough to know where past accidents may have taken place, accidents you may not have even known about. Chem-Dry can identify pet accidents in your home with a black light evaluation to determine where these accidents have happened. Once we find these areas in your carpets and rugs we can apply our revolutionary cleaning product P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment).  P.U.R.T. contacts the source of the odor and then immediately begins a chemical reaction that destroys the urine odor. It’s shown excellent results on even the most severe urine damage. If not treated properly, the odor from pet accidents can travel through the entire home and impact your health and your happiness.

Pet urine in the carpet can leave an unsightly stain and an unpleasant odor. Just a simple cleaning will not take care of the urine crystals left in the carpet.  As the urine dries, the liquid evaporates but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and pungent. To help rid your home of this pet urine, Chem-Dry can apply P.U.R.T. While many cleaners can only “mask” the pet urine odors, Chem-Dry’s P.U.R.T. is designed to go to the molecular level and destroys the urine crystals to eliminate the odor.

How P.U.R.T Works

  1. We will use a black light to determine where the urine spots are located and how severe the damage is to the carpet.
  2. Then the carpet will be rinsed and extracted with a hot water rinse to remove the bulk of the urine crystals.  Pet Urine Removal Treatment will be applied.
  3. The next 24 to 36 hours, the ingredients in P.U.R.T.® will react with the urine, and break down the odor causing components. While this process occurs, your carpet will stay damp to the touch
  4. Your carpets are clean and the odor is gone!

If you are having pet odor or pet urine issues, call Chem-Dry of Michiana for a free black light evaluation and estimate. We can help make your home drier, cleaner, and healthier.
