remove pet urine odor and bacteria from carpetPet urine can cause severe damage to your carpet that requires extensive restoration work to repair. Urine deposited on carpet penetrates deep into the fibers, backing, and even the flooring underneath. When the urine dries, crystals are left behind that can’t be removed with basic cleaning.

Pets tend to urinate repeatedly in the same location, so these odors may be permeating from your cement or wood flooring, tack strip, and even the framework of the house behind walls.

Luckily, there’s a revolutionary new treatment that can be applied to your carpet every few months, removing pet urine and odor before it becomes a permanent problem.


Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment

With Chem-Dry’s P.U.R.T.® Pet Urine Removal Treatment, even the most severely damaged carpets can be saved. This product is specially formulated to break down pet urine odor at the source rather than temporarily masking it like other methods.

We recently commissioned an independent air quality laboratory to test the effectiveness of our P.U.R.T.® method at removing pet odor and bacteria from carpet. Proof is in the results!

  • Our P.U.R.T.® treatment is 99.9% effective on average at eliminating pet urine odors.
  • Our P.U.R.T.® treatment removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from the pet urine stains in the carpets.

How P.U.R.T.® Works to Remove Pet Odor and Bacteria

  1. John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County conducts a thorough inspection of your flooring. This helps us identify the source and severity of the pet odor.
  2. We rinse the carpet and use hot water to extract a large amount of the urine crystals.
  3. If needed, the carpet is pulled back in suspected problem areas so reveal the extent of the damage.
  4. Padding will be removed and replaced if necessary.
  5. An odor blocking shellac is applied to the sub-floor if needed.
  6. P.U.R.T.® is applied generously to the sub-floor, tack strip, carpet backing, and baseboards. We’re sure to apply enough product to drench all of the areas affected by pet urine.
  7. The P.U.R.T.® ingredients work over the next 24-36 hours to react with any remaining urine and break down odor causing components.
