Have you ever been to someone’s house and you can smell their pet before you see their dog or cat? Not only can pet odor be unpleasant, but it can be embarrassing for both you and the host. Unfortunately, the distinct odor of your pet can cling to the furnishing, flooring and even the air in your home. As a result, controlling their smell in your home can be challenging, especially during the winter months when our four-legged friends spend more time inside.
Odor Control from Pets:

These products contain actual non-pathogenic, live bacteria to break down organic stains and odors. Urine goes through a ‘decaying process’ as it ages in your carpet, caused by bacteria feeding on the organic wastes. The bacteria convert the leftover waste to gases, causing a strong ammonia smell. Bacterial cleaners actually use good bacteria to ‘digest’ the waste and thus the source of the odor. These cleaners work best at removing organic stains such as blood, urine, feces, and vomit, as well as accompanying odors.
Important! Epoleon's pet odor control should be handled safely so that both you and your pet can live comfortably.

A side effect of improperly treated or ignored pet accidents that develops over time is pet odor. This is one of the most common reasons why people seek out stain control, because they actually require pet odor control.When removing urine from carpets the level of contamination will determine the approach needed to achieve satisfactory results. One of the larges challenges when re-mediating a urine or bacteria related odor is when ineffective attempts have been made prior to our arrival, making it difficult to find the source of the odor. If this is the case I will suggest a sub-surface inspection in order to get an accurate evaluation on what is needed.The Odor of Old Stains
Spots are one thing. We can generally deal with those. Yet even one stain from your pet can actually create a strong odor that is hard to ignore. Especially in the summer months when the sun heats up your home and you have the windows closed with the air conditioning pumping; that’s when you notice it most. That’s when you realize that you need the best pet odor control you can find.When urine has saturated the carpet backing and pad the next level in odor removal is required. The process of Sub-surface extraction includes the application of a high temperature oxidizer to saturate the affected areas. Dwell time of up to 30 minutes is required for this process to complete its chemistry. With heavily saturated padding and or tack strips we will suggest replacing the effected materials. Also if the sub floor has been affected then it too needs to be cleaned and treated to kill the bacteria in the wood. Specialized sealers are then used which contain enzymes that will continue to break down urine deep in the wood surface. In order for bacteria to grow and flourish it requires both moisture and a food source. The bio-enzymatic product I use is applied similarly to the odor neutralizer. It is applied both pre and post cleaning. The final application is intended to continue to metabolize through the drying process. The product is applied at proper concentrations and left for up to an hour before extraction. While the carpet dries the chemistry continues to work, once the carpet has dried it can be occupied. This process increases the amount of time it takes for the carpet to dry by up to 12 hours. After the carpet has fully dried it needs to be vacuumed, this product is an encapsulating product. How many so called "odor elimination" products have you already tried where the odor returns? Here's reality: If the odor eliminator product doesn't eliminate all three odor components or doesn't come in direct contact with the biological excretion, the odor will naturally return. When the odor returns, so does your pet, and the cycle repeats.
