Odor Removal Through chemistry

The most difficult smells to remove in carpets are cat urine and skunk odor. The Carpet Chemist has perfected the science of odor removal with a proprietary, safe and odorless formula. Once our secret formula makes contact with the odor’s source, it immediately starts eating and digesting the odor. Apart from the obvious, odor removal offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Cleaner and more vibrant-looking carpets
  • Absolutely no residues left behind
  • Preserved colors and textures
  • Disappearance of traffic patterns
  • Improved carpet resistance
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Lifted carpet (no longer a matted pile)
  • Cleaner laundry (Your white socks will stay white longer!)
  • Peace of mind to host guests more often

Healthy Solutions for Pet Urine Removal

Why does it seem like accidents always happen on the carpet? Your first reaction might be to remove as much of the solid waste as you can and then use soap to clean up the rest.

If you’re a pet owner, you probably have a big red bottle of soap or another “miracle” cleaner you bought at the grocery store. But having been in the professional carpet cleaning business for decades, we can tell you that these store-bought solutions can actually make the problem worse.

The Ugly Truth

The truth is: Your big red bottle of carpet soap isn’t very effective at all. In fact, you’ve probably noticed that foaming suds appear on the carpet as you scrub. This leaves behind a sticky residue that will attract even more dirt and enlarge the area. Always beware of “miracles” in a bottle. Too much oxidizer will bleach out your carpet and can harm your pet’s skin.

The Carpet Chemist says: We all love our pets. But it’s frustrating when accidents happen, furry friend or not! Grab a big 16 oz. bottle of our top secret formula that’s specifically designed to destroy pet odors. It’s odor-free and 100 percent safe for your pets!

The 3 Levels of Pet Urine Contamination


  • Level 1: Topical
    The most common and easiest level of pet urine odor removal from any carpet is topical. Topical means we are only treating the small odor stains on the surface of the carpet.

  • LEVEL 2: Carpet padding

    A general rule of thumb: If you see a urine stain on your carpet, it’s generally three times the size in the carpet padding. This is because your carpet padding is essentially a giant sponge. Still, carpet thickness, type of padding and other variables will determine the extent of damage. The section of affected carpet padding must be either cut out and replaced with new padding, or a subsurface extraction tool with urine-destroying chemicals must be used to remove the urine from the pad.


  • LEVEL 3: Subflooring
    Subflooring treatment is commonly needed when pets become incontinent and simply have no control over their bladder and bowel movements. Unfortunately, the padding cannot be saved in a Level 3 situation. While the carpet might be salvageable, the concrete or 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, the carpet re-stretched and fastened and the top of the carpet will be decontaminated and cleaned. This level of treatment is best suited for high-quality carpet. For lower-quality products, it’s often cheaper just to replace your carpet.

Can Your Carpet Be Salvaged?

Before throwing in the proverbial towel, give The Carpet Chemist a call to set up an on-site consultation. If it’s not worth saving, we’ll let you know without hesitation. Typically, if your carpet is more than 20 percent damaged by pet urine, it cannot be salvaged and you’ll likely need to consider new flooring options.
