We love our pets but, at times, we hate the smells they make! Pet urine can do permanent damage to your floors and carpets if left untreated. Let V&V Carpet Care help you to get pet odors under control. We can professionally remove urine and deodorize upholstery, area rugs, and wall to wall carpeting to keep your home smelling fresh and clean. It is best to treat accidents as soon as they happen. When urine is first deposited onto your carpeting it has a neutral-acidic pH. In this state, it is easy to remove but, as it dries the pH changes. If the urine is left for days at a time on the carpet, it can permanently do damage to the dye structure in the carpet fibers resulting in permanent color loss. Then the odor will not be your only issue! Call us today to schedule your carpet deodorizing appointment!
You may notice that a few days after you bring home your brand new rug, the room smells different. Sometimes the odor fades or we become accustomed to the new smell in the house. But, in some cases the odor never goes away. Why does this happen? Tufted rugs are constructed with a latex glue. You know you have a tufted rug if you see that it has a canvas backing. With this type of rug construction, the odor is usually coming from the glue and cannot be corrected. Distressed rugs are a popular modern style that use chemicals to remove the dye for a more designer look. In some cases these chemicals leave a sulfur odor. Sometimes these odors can be neutralized with a deodorizing treatment. However, the odor can come back again after washing because the neutralizing treatment was washed out along
with the filth.
