It’s hard enough dealing with carpet stains but pet stain odor removal in Tucson is at a whole another level. We all love our dogs, cats, and exotic animals. We can’t live without them. But we can live without the unappealing site of stains and worse, the incredibly pungent smell of pet urine. Most know that cat and dog urine is more troublesome to deal with than human urine. This is because animals that don’t have the complex vocal communication skills that us people have must rely on other ways to “talk”. This comes out in the form of pheromones and odorants.
Animals use pheromones to mark places, objects, and even people. It’s a way they can communicate to other animals, for example their territorial dominance. While this is usually an effective mode of communication, some animals can experience stress and will resort to urination as a stronger way of communicating. While this relieves the fears of the animal, this usually only displaces the stress directly to the pet owner.
Because animals have to rely on these pheromones and odorants to communicate, more than humans, the composition of such things as dog and cat urine contains more putative components. For example, male cat urine contains the pungent pheromone 3-mercapto-3-methylbutan-1-ol, otherwise known as MMB. Not only do cats use such strong odors to warn competing cats, but also to lure prey of rats and mice. So surprisingly, if your cat is hungry, it might instinctively urinate on the carpet. Or even if it sees a stray cat walking by the house. The important thing to know is that there are ways to treat such pet stain odor removal.
Pet stain odor removal requires selective enzymes. These enzymes can break down the components of the urine, like MMB, so that the odor can effectively dissipate. It’s a difficult task to choose the right cleaner and learn how to use it effectively. And while there are several cleaners on the market, the truth is that these enzymes only work best under higher temperature and pressure. It’s the inescapable physics of the situation. So while even the top, most expensive pet cleaner on the market can partially treat a pet stain and odor, it’s best to take the advantage of the resources and training of an expert carpet cleaner. Professional carpet cleaners have at their disposal these top pet cleaners along with truck mounted hot water extraction equipment for reaching the needed temperature and pressure.
