The 3 levels of pet urine contamination

Why pet stains reappear:

  • LEVEL 1. Topical- The most common and easiest level of pet urine odor removal from carpet is topical. That means we are only treating the small pet urine odor stains on the surface of the carpet, visa vi the carpet fibers.
  • LEVEL 2. Carpet padding- A general rule of thumb to remember is that if you see a pee stain on your carpet, it’s generally 3 times the size in the carpet padding, since your carpet padding is essentially a giant sponge. That being said, carpet thickness, type of padding, and other variables will determine if that’s probable in your case. If it is, The affected carpet padding section must be either cut out and replaced with new, or a subsurface extraction tool with urine destroying chemicals must be used to remove the pee from the pad.
  • LEVEL 3. Sub flooring- Sub flooring treatment is commonly needed in the case where pets become incontinent and simply have no control of their movements. There is no saving the padding in a level 3 pet urine decontamination. The carpet may still be salvaged but first the concrete of plywood subfloors must have an odor barrier application thoroughly applied. Once it dries, the fresh new padding will be installed. Finally, the carpet backing will be decontaminated, carpet re-stretched and fastened, and the top of the carpet will be decontaminated and cleaned. Many times carpet can be replaced much cheaper, so this level of treatment may be reserved for higher quality carpet.


Before throwing in the proverbial towel, give The Carpet Chemist a call to discuss setting up an on site appointment to have your carpet evaluated. If it’s not worth saving, we’ll let you know without hesitation. Typically if your carpet is more than 20% contaminated with pet urine, it’s going to be a loss, and we would recommend you start looking into new flooring options.
