Most pet owners take it upon themselves to fix their pet urine carpet accidents, not realising that home remedies and DIY approaches, can often make the problem worse. Please, stop right there!

Metro Carpet Cleaners use specialised techniques to effectively decontaminate and remove pet urine from carpeted flooring and underpad. Here are some common decontamination steps we take:

  1. Pre-inspection:
    • Metro technicians start by assessing the extent of the pet urine contamination, identifying affected areas, and determining the severity of the damage.
  2. Urine Detection:
    • We use ultraviolet (UV) lights and moisture sensors to detect urine spots that may not be visible to the naked eye.
  3. Initial Extraction:
    • The first step is often to extract as much urine as possible from the carpet and underpad. This is initially done using a high-powered extraction machine.
  4. Treatment with Enzymatic Solution:
    • Our bio-enzymatic solutions are specifically designed to break down and neutralise the proteins in pet urine. Our technicians apply the solution to the affected areas, allowing them to penetrate and break down the urine crystals and dried residue. Upon contact, the good bacteria in our solutions work immediately by producing enzymes that break down the organic matter that causes the stains and odours. These enzymes feed on the pet urine particles and convert them into simple natural compounds, all the while multiplying, producing more enzymes, and feeding until the stains and odour have gone.
  5. Hot Water Extraction:
    • Extensive hot water extraction, or steam cleaning as it’s more commonly known, using our “Water Claw” extractor system. This process involves injecting hot water and cleaning solution into the carpet, agitating the fibers, breaking down the dried out urine crystals, and then extracting the water along with dissolved contaminants.
  6. Neutralisation:
    • After cleaning, Metro will use a pH-balancing solution to neutralise any remaining residues and ensure that the carpet returns to a neutral pH level.
  7. Deodorisation:
    • Pet urine can often leave unpleasant lingering odours, even after treatment. In a lot of cases (depending on the extent of contamination), the odour can get worse before it gets better after initial treatment.  Our technicians will apply specialised deodorisers to neutralise and eliminate any lingering smells.
  8. Drying:
    • Proper drying is crucial to prevent the growth of mould and mildew, so our professionals will install high-powered air mover carpet dryers to ensure the carpet and underpad are thoroughly dried.
  9. Inspection and Spot Treatment:
    • After the cleaning process, an inspection of the carpet is undertaken to ensure that all urine stains and odours have been effectively removed. A bottle of our recommended  Bio-Bacterial stain and odour remover will be left with the client to continue to apply for a short time after the initial treatment. It is a safeguard natural way of completing the pet stain and odour removal treatment, ensuring complete decontamination from the previously treated areas.
  10. Replacement of Underpad (if required):
    • In severe cases where the urine has saturated the underpad, Metro may recommend replacing the underpad to prevent lingering odours and potential long-term damage.
  11. Sealing the Subfloor (if needed):
    • In extreme cases where urine has penetrated the subfloor, our technicians may recommend sealing the subfloor to prevent odours from reoccurring.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of the cleaning process depends on factors such as the severity of the contamination, the type of carpet and underpad, and the promptness of the response to treating the pet urine incident. Hiring Metro Carpet Cleaning’s skilled technicians for pet urine removal can significantly improve the chances of successful decontamination.
