Pet Odour Deodorising
Pet Odours and Accidents
We specialise in pet odour and deodorising treatments in the West Midlands, as we are one of the highest pet loving nations in the world and so would not be without them. Sometimes our carpets and upholstery can pick up odours from our pets especially in the wet winter times when we have just taken them out for a walk, and sometimes they may have that little accident. Also if you have just moved into a new home and there has been a dog or cat present there can be an odour left behind that you don’t want because you may suffer with pet allergies. So our eco-friendly deodorising solution and high heat will wipe away all those unwanted odours and so will not harm you, your children or your pets.
The big problem with urine contamination, the fact that the longer it is left on the carpet or fabric the more damage it’s going to do. When urine dries the urine salts crystallise, which then starts releasing that tell-tale odour, which will increase and get worse and worse. Urine when left can burn the fibres and fabric leaving a permanent stain. We have the right neutralising solutions and have carried out the training to industry standards and have the experience and equipment to deal with these types of situations. So the sooner you deal with the problem the better the result.
Nicotine and smoke contamination
Cigarette smoke and nicotine stains can leave a really nasty stale smell in your home, and it don’t just contaminate the carpets and upholstery. Nicotine stains and odours will be on the ceiling, walls and any other surface it comes into contact with. These are also highly toxic too and will affect your health and the breathing quality in your home.
We have all been ill at some point in our lives and sometimes accidents do happen, but with vomit when it has been left on the carpet even after you have cleaned it up there is still an odour left behind. This is because there are small particles of bacteria deep in the fibres that will carry on realising that horrible odour, and because it is highly acidic there could be permanent damage if left on the carpet or upholstery. We have the right cleaning and deodorising solution to deal with these types of situations.
Accidental Food & Drink Spillages
If you’ve ever dropped drink or food by accident on your carpet or upholstery you know how much of a problem they can leave behind, even when you think you have cleaned all of it up. We find most of the time people will attempt to clean it up there self with a certain super market brand cleaner that gets a lot of advertising on the television. Because we are professional carpet and upholstery cleaners in Birmingham working in this industry we always say to every customer please do not use these chemicals on your carpet and upholstery. All they do is leave behind a foamy sticky residue substance in the fibres and eventually they will re-soil leaving a dirty dark mark. In some cases, when it has been used on a wool carpet it has even removed the colour leaving a pale mark. We have the equipment that flushes the spillage out of the fibres, and the correct cleaning and odour treatment solutions, to deal with every substance spilt, plus whatever we treat it with, will be fully rinsed from your carpet and upholstery, leaving them clean and residue free.
Pet Odour Deodorising FAQs
If you have any small furniture, ornaments, or small tables in the rooms where you want your carpets cleaned, we always ask you to remove these items from these areas, so they cannot get broken. Also, if there is any electrical item like a television on a stand or a music system, we sometimes ask you to disconnect and remove these items from the area, if we cannot swing the stands to clean behind. We are fully insured if any damage arises, but we much prefer you to remove them. If there are any sofas or chairs, we can move these ourselves around the room if there is space. The same goes for bedrooms, as sometimes there is not much space to move these large items around. If the bed is safe to move, we will do it, but please be aware we need to protect our backs! However, our job is to clean as much as we can, as best as we can.
When we have finished cleaning your carpets, we always set the carpet pile with a grooming rake. This removes all tool marks and footprints and helps to speed up the drying process. So yes, you can walk on it straight away, but we always say, try and stay off it as long as possible until it’s dry. Also if you have a slight bit of dirt on your shoes or slippers because the carpet is slightly damp, it will grab the dirt and it will stick to the carpet fibres. Also sometimes walking from a damp surface to a hard surface can cause an accident by slipping over, so please be aware of this.
All carpet and furniture manufactures recommend that your carpets and upholstery should be cleaned every one to two years, depending on the kind of use they are subjected to. When you vacuum your carpets, this helps remove dust, crumbs, dirt, and other debris. But a lot of the time there are very small dirt particles that work their way deep down into the fibres and fabrics, and it is this type of dirt that acts like sandpaper and grates against the fibres, which in time wears the fibres away leaving the carpet looking dull and dark. Eventually they become very visible, so this why we also recommend regular professional carpet and upholstery cleaning. Regular cleaning is still far more cost effective than replacing it no matter how inexpensive the items were in the first place.
Once your carpet and upholstery has been cleaned, it will depend on types of fibre and construction. If you have a natural fibre wool carpet, the wool will absorb more moisture it may take a little longer to dry, whereas if you have a man-made synthetic carpet the fibres cannot absorb any moisture, so these types can dry a lot quicker. We always say to all our customers it will take between 2 and 4 hours. Believe it or not, you need airflow to maximise the drying time. Opening a window and getting a little airflow through the house will speed up the drying process. On a cold winter’s day that may be more difficult but just closing the doors and turning up the heat, means that the air becomes humid, and the carpet or upholstery cannot dry as quickly.
