Carpet can be a breeding ground for bad odors that permeate a facility or a residence. Conventional cleaning processes often fail to remove these smells.
Lingering odors in carpet are often caused by decomposing organic materials such as dairy products, meat, poultry, plant based materials, beverages, tobacco, human and animal fluids.
Examples of lingering odors that emanate from carpet can include homes with multiple cats or dogs, nursing homes, health clubs, veterinary clinics, day cares, schools, restaurants, cafeterias, and locker rooms.
Let’s start by trying to understand why these odors create such a persistent problem by using an example of a urine accident on carpet.
First, the urine is absorbed into the carpet fiber, it wicks through the backing, and soaks into the subfloor. The urine spreads out underneath the carpet and can expand to 3 times the size of the spot on the carpet surface.
Bacteria see the urine as a food source and they love the warm, moist environment and proceed to grow exponentially. As part of the consumption process, these odor causing bacteria emit foul smelling by-products that we often associate with urine odor.
The use of disinfecting agents or other typical cleaners is often fruitless because they cannot reach the problem, which is below the carpet surface and perhaps in the subfloor itself.
To deal with odor causing bacteria, manufacturers of cleaning products have turned to harnessing nature to outsmart the foul smelling microbes. Carpet cleaning products using blends of specially cultivated microbes are up to the challenge. The difference is these microbes are far more efficient than the odor causing bacteria at seeking out and consuming the urine residue without any odors at all!

This video demonstrates why it is important to reach all areas of pet urine contamination if you want to get rid of urine smell. The larger the pet the greater chance that the pee has filtered down into the carpet padding and sub floor making complete removal using homemade solutions almost impossible.
If you try to use an enzyme (the one we use ) to sanitize the area make sure to pour enough solution onto the carpet to get the padding and sub floor wet. Dilute according to instructions on the container and make sure to THOROUGHLY RINSE the whole area. Sometimes you can use a powerful Wet/Dry vacuum ( ) to pull up the solution once it has had enough time to “eat up” the urine.
After rinsing allow to dry to see how effective the process was. Peroxide can be used when the carpet is dry to help with residual staining and odors.
For more aggressive help with the staining try Sally’s 20 Volume Peroxide .
