DIY or DDIY? Pet Urine Stain & Odor Removal Van's Chem-Dry

Do It Yourself, or more commonly known as DIY projects, has become widely popular throughout the country. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are finding themselves with an increased amount of free time. Many people throughout Sacramento and Elk Grove are tackling some of those home improvement projects they never had the time to do before. There’s also a lot of satisfaction and fulfillment about getting the job by yourself and seeing a beautiful result.

However, not every job can or should be done by yourself without a professional. One of those jobs surprisingly is pet urine stain and odor removal.


Why DIY Pet Stain And Odor Removal Isn’t Enough

You might be curious to know how exactly this requires professional help and why you shouldn’t attempt this on your own. When cleaning up pet stains, it’s crucial to use the right method—otherwise, the problem could end up much worse. Many stores sell DIY pet urine stain and odor removal solutions, but these will never solve the problem entirely. Do-it-yourself spot cleaning may remove surface stains in the short-term, but won’t eliminate odors at the source. While you may think you have removed the odor and stain for good, think again. It could be causing a lot of hidden problems to threaten the overall health of your family.

More often than not, when a pet has an accident on a carpet it is not discovered in real-time. Most accidents can be discovered many minutes or hours after they have occurred. This makes it too late for any DIY solution to work effectively. The pet urine doesn’t just settle on top of the carpet, rather it seeps deep into the carpet fibers and can even be absorbed by padding and the flooring beneath. When the urine dries it forms strong odor crystals and can quickly contribute to the formation of bacteria and other contaminants. These crystals will continue releasing odors into your home if not taken care of properly and trigger health problems in certain individuals.

Also, many of the DIY solutions can be toxic to your pets and harm their health. Carpet discoloration can also be a problem with the application of these solutions. It’s also important not to use too much moisture in the cleaning process or use cleaning solutions that deposit dirt-attracting residue to your carpet fibers.
