Pittsburgh Pet Odor Control “extreme case”
This was a project in a vacant property outside of Pittsburgh. The home must have had some big dogs at some point, because the pet odor was overwhelming. Dog and cat urine was throughout the carpet. But it didn’t stop with the carpet! The carpet pad was soaked but so was the sub-flooring! In the living room it was even worse. The sub-floor was so bad, that when we went to the basement and removed the drop ceiling we could see the urine stains all the way through the sub floor.
- The first step to deodorize:
Carpet cleaning was not a option with this much urine in the carpet. So first we removed all of the carpet and the carpet pad from the home.
- The second step in deodorizing:
After removing all the carpet, the next step is to either treat and seal the sub-floor (if it can be saved), or remove and replace it. When we seal a sub-floor we use a restoration-grade odor blocking primer, stronger and more effective than Kilzs.
- The last step in a whole house deodorizing project:
We wanted 100% odor removal so the all of the walls, cabinets– really every surface was wiped down. Then the entire home was fogged with a strong deodorizer that would kill and destroy odor and any mold in the home. This included the hvac system and the air ducts. After we finished, the home went from unlivable to a breath of fresh air!
