In this blog, we’ll explore the causes of pet odours and tackling puppy accidents. We will explain how our professionals approach the problem, provide steps you can take to lessen the issue and address the reality that sometimes complete odour removal is impossible.
Understanding the Source of Pet Odours:
Have you ever wondered why pet accidents leave behind a persistent smell? The culprit is not just the urine itself but the bacteria that are attracted to it. These bacteria produce volatile compounds, resulting in the unpleasant odours we associate with pet accidents. The longer urine remains in your carpet, the more challenging it becomes to eliminate the odour completely. That’s why it’s crucial to address the problem promptly.

Professional Approach to Resolving Pet Odours:
When it comes to pet odour removal, our team of professionals at Art of Clean follows a systematic approach. Here’s an overview of the steps we take to help you bid farewell to those pesky pet odours:
- Assessment and Inspection:
Our experts begin by thoroughly assessing the affected area. They examine the extent of the odour and stain, evaluate the type of carpet fibres, and determine the severity of the problem. This initial step allows us to develop a tailored strategy for effective odour removal.
- Stain and Odour Removal:
Our team employs a multi-step process that targets both the stain and the odour, ensuring comprehensive results:
- Blotting and Absorption:
Our team will carefully blot the affected area to remove any excess urine and minimize the spread of stains. We use specialized tools and absorbent materials to extract as much liquid as possible.
- Cleaning and Sanitizing:
Next, we employ professional-grade carpet cleaning solutions specifically designed to neutralize the bacteria and enzymes present in pet urine. These solutions effectively break down the compounds causing the odour, sanitizing the carpet fibres in the process.
- Deep Extraction and Rinse:
Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to deep clean your carpet, extracting any remaining urine particles and cleaning agents. This step helps restore the carpet’s original freshness while ensuring a thorough removal of any lingering odour.
- Odour Neutralization:
As a final touch, we employ specialized odour-neutralizing agents that work to eliminate the smell at its source. These products help counteract and neutralize the volatile compounds, leaving your carpet smelling clean and fresh. We use a product called Envirosafe.
Steps You Can Take to Help Remove Pet Odours:
While our professionals are equipped to handle pet odour issues effectively, there are steps you can take to assist in the process:
- Act Swiftly:
Address accidents promptly to prevent urine from seeping deeper into the carpet fibres, making odour removal more challenging.
- Blot, Don’t Rub:
When cleaning up pet accidents, avoid rubbing the affected area vigorously. Instead, gently blot the stain with a paper towel or clean cloth to soak up the urine as much as possible.
- Avoid Harsh Chemicals:
Harsh chemicals can potentially damage your carpet fibres or set the stain. Stick to mild cleaning agents recommended for pet accidents or consult our experts for guidance.
- Increase Ventilation:
Allow fresh air to circulate in the affected area to reduce the odour. Open windows or use fans to facilitate air movement and aid in the drying process.
Acknowledging Limitations with Pet Odours:
Despite our best efforts, there are instances where complete elimination of pet odours becomes challenging. Factors such as the duration of the accident, the type of carpet fibres, and the extent of contamination can influence the effectiveness of odour removal. In rare cases, if urine has permeated deep into the carpet padding or subfloor, complete odour removal may be impossible. In such scenarios, we can explore alternative solutions, including targeted treatments or partial carpet replacement, to alleviate the problem.
At Art of Clean, we provide premium carpet cleaning services and ensure customer satisfaction. While pet odours can be stubborn, our team of professionals is equipped with the knowledge, expertise, and cutting-edge technology to tackle the problem head-on. By promptly addressing accidents, seeking professional assistance, and following the steps I have outlined in this blog, you can significantly improve your chances of eliminating pet odours and maintaining a fresh and inviting home. Trust us to help you say goodbye to pet odours and welcome a clean, odour-free environment that both you and your guests will love.
