Carpet odor removal

Any carpet whether it is a throw rug or wall to wall carpeting can be the perfect medium for all types of odors. A bad smelling carpet can be very unhealthy and serve as a catalyst for a number of medical issues. Symptoms of breathing foul air originating from dirty carpeting range from flu-like symptoms, sneezing, trouble sleeping, headaches, and fevers to aggravating asthma conditions, eye inflammation and other severe allergic reactions. Allergens in the carpet can develop easily from so many sources. Learning to prevent odor causing incidents and getting on a regular cleaning schedule are essential habits to keeping you feeling good and your home smelling good.
Much has been said on what causes bad odors in carpeting. Most likely you have your own say based on personal experiences. A list of common odor causing agents can be a lengthy one, but none the less for the purposes of this article it would be a good idea to name just a few of them:

  • Urine
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Cooking vapors
  • Food and drink spills
  • Mold, mildew and fungus
  • Pollen and insect droppings, fleas, roaches

Urine soaked carpeting is probable the worst example for what causes bad odors, perhaps you already know that. To clean urine from carpeting is a major endeavor, it requires professional carpet cleaners. A bad cleaning job can result in having the carpet torn out and got rid of. No simple method is successful. Professional carpet cleaners have the know how to provide excellent results in the most challenging cases.
Removal of urine from carpets is a major problem because it penetrates deeply into the carpet; it goes into the fibers, below the carpet, and settling in the padding and even the floor itself. Urine dries and what remains instead are its crystals, which are even worse in smell than wet urine. Removal of urine crystals takes a very special cleaning method, aggressive as it may be.
Professional carpet cleaners use special cleaning chemicals to neutralize and destroy the urine odor. Cleaning products used should be green certified, safe to humans and the environment. You don’t want to use a chemical what will leave a residue on the carpet that will affect your health or your pets health or even cause long term damage to the carpet.

How to clean a carpet

  1. Determine the source of the odor. Use the correct method to wash and extract the urine crystals.
  2. Determine whether or not the carpet needs to be pulled off to get to the underneath areas to do a better cleaning.
  3. Determine whether or not the padding needs to be replaced, padding is cheap.
  4. Determine the correct agent to apply. There are many cleaning agents in the market today, choosing the proper agent is very important.
  5. Determine the carpet is dry after cleaning is done. This is done via commercial fans.

Other Carpet Issues

Carpets are a great source for storage of allergens, chemical agents and organic materials. Carpeting has been shown to be a good host for mold and mildew as well as dust mites. Some people can tolerate air irritants well, but most will have difficulties with the air they breathe.
Carpets that are subject to moist environments pose a special challenge for keeping carpets healthy and looking good. Special precautions should be made, like sealing the sub-floors with water sealers, treating the carpets with products such as Scotch-Guard, and providing the area with proper ventilation.
Dust mites, mold and mildew are common allergens found in carpeting. Most likely found in carpets that are in high humidity areas, these allergens can be prevented easily by regular vacuuming and keeping the room dry with the help of air conditioning and ceiling fans. Make sure that when carpets are cleaned, they are completely dry.

  • Clean up spills immediately.
  • Avoid using hazardous products on your carpet, such as pesticides and insecticides.
  • Keep your air conditioning going, this helps in preventing formation of mold, mildew and fungus.
