The growing popularity of challenging Do-It-Yourself projects continues to spread! A quick search on Google or YouTube provides a lot of answers to many of our questions. It can even save you money in the long run.
However, it’s important to remember that some DIY projects can actually produce more problems than solutions. For example, pet odor removal.
Negative Consequences of DIY Pet Urine Carpet Cleaning
When it comes to pet urine carpet cleaning in Edmond, it’s crucial to use correct methods and cleaning solutions. Failing to do so often makes the problem significantly worse.
Do-It-Yourself carpet cleaning methods can actually do a good job removing surface stains for a time. However, it won’t eliminate the source of the odor. This equates to stains and smells that can actually come back worse than they were before.
We’ll explain why! When pet urine dries, it leaves behind highly acidic, concentrated, odor-filled crystals deep in your carpet fibers, padding, and sometimes the hard flooring beneath. Because these crystals remain even after surface cleaning, they continue to release odors in your home. They can possibly even wick recurring stains back to the surface of your carpet.
Many “Do-It Yourselfers” also use cleaning solutions that aren’t safe for pets. It’s important to look for non-toxic formulas.
Another common carpet cleaning mistake is using too much moisture. This creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, can harm the environment, and often leaves behind soapy, sticky residue that quickly attracts more stains.
