In most cases, though, you'll need to do more to completely remove the odor and reduce the chances of repeat soiling. If you can't pinpoint where a lingering smell is coming from, buy or rent a black (ultraviolet) light, which helps reveal invisible stains. Enzyme-based cleaners are particularly helpful in removing pet urine. Before applying, use plain water to flush out and blot off as much of the soaked-in substances—including cleaning products that may have been applied previously, which may interfere with the enzyme cleaner—as possible.
We extract the water after cleaning, to remove the bulk of the urine crystals from your carpet.
