Biological Odor Treatment
Zerorez® understands accidents happen, causing odor and discoloration in your floors. If not properly treated, biological matter, such as urine, can create a breeding ground for bacteria and an unhealthy indoor environment.
Urine is acidic when it enters carpet, and oxidizes as it dries. This causes the yellowing effect in floors. Oxidation, along with the ammonia and urochrome in urine, can permanently dye the color of your carpet if not properly treated.
As urine dries, a chemical change occurs. Acidic urine becomes alkaline, forming urea salts that attract moisture and keeps odor-causing bacteria alive for years. Biological matter must be neutralized to destroy bacteria and odor at its source.
A Specialized Method
In some cases our standard Zerorez® carpet cleaning process may be all that is needed. In more severe cases, when the urine soaks through the carpet backing into the padding, we have a specialized method to remove these difficult pet odors and stains through a pad extraction procedure.
Unfortunately, in some cases the problem is extremely severe, encompassing the sub floor and tack strips. In this situation, our technician may recommend carpet/pad replacement provided by a third party carpet repair professional.
