Questions and Answers
How Do I Get Rid of Carpet Odor?My adolescent son’s carpet is stinky. Truly smelly. The carpet was there when I married my husband, and so is probably about twenty years old. I would say just rip it out but it LOOKS really, really good.
The flooring beneath it is slab concrete. It has a musty/high odor, and sometimes actually wafts down the hall to the living room. I have shampooed the carpet numerous times, twice I have used full strength Febreeze in the shamp;ooer tanks…..this works great. For a few days. Right now we cannot afford new carpet, and this is just maddening. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Keep shampooing it like you have been (2x/wk) and air it out – keep the windows open as much as possible for ventilation – fresh air it totally under-rated. Also get a dehumidifier to use after you shampoo the carpet. They also have an odor remover liquid to add into the shampoo machine – it works pretty well. If it is just unbearable rip it out then paint and seal the his concrete floor.. You can make it look really cool… Get him an area rug from a discount place if you dont like the bare concrete idea.
Best way to eliminate pet odors from carpet?I am looking to do a thorough cleaning of the interior of my home, as all of the carpets have seemed to have been soiled with puppy urine. There are plenty of methods and products out there but I am wondering if anyone has dealt with this issue before and had success with a certain product or method? Also, any ideas how to keep the previously affected areas clean (how to deterr the animals from relieving themselves there in the future?) thanks.
We perform most of these types of operation on apts and restoration jobs when someone buys a bank owned property and is fixing it up without replacing the carpet, if the carpet in pace is of high quality ($15-$25 a yard) and is fairly new, with pet stains or smokers damage.
You might be able to get the job done with only enzymes but we’ve found only one type works, don’t remember the brand name however plus don’t want to plug any product, it’s one of the types sold in Petco that comes with a money back guarantee. Keep the receipt in case it doesn’t work, they sell 3-4 types, only 1 works, all is guaranteed to work. However, enzymes won’t remove 100%, if you put your nose to the carpet, you’ll still smell pee, but it won’t be enough to fill the air.
How to remove pet odor in carpet?I am renting a house that needs some work. The landlord would not rent it out unless my boyfriend and I decided we wanted it. In exchange for some rent money we are fixing the place up for him, as the last tenants destroyed it. When I went back for the second time, I realized just how bad the urine smell was in the front living room. It’s almost as if a dog has just lived in this room, defecating all through the carpet. It had me gagging even with the windows open.
Long story short, we are going to try to use a rug doctor and the pet urine detergent they have for the machine. If I use this several times over will it rid of most of the smell? I would love to rip the carpet up but I am not sure how much money my landlord would want to put into this. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks
Like i said, I cannot rip up the carpet. So anything else to clean it will help.
First I soak the stain with 2-3 quarts of enzymatic cleaner Http://www.masterblend.net/chemicals/deo…
Then I extract it with a truck mount carpet extractor that has about 10x the force of a Rug Dr. And use a sub-surface attachment to pull from the pad Http://www.waterclaw.com/
Then I rinse with 2x as much water, 4-6 quarts.
Then I extract with the water claw again. I pull out 95% of the moisture in the carpet and pad. This is the only way.
I finish with a odor counteractant. Odoban Http://www.odoban.com/
