Dear Pet Lover,
This is Dave with Alexander’s Carpet Cleaning. Pets are wonderful…of that there can be no doubt. The unconditional love pets give their owners has enduring value. The thought of going through life without one’s prize pet(s) seems unbearable. The benefits of pet ownership are slightly offset by the sometimes-erratic behaviors and traits of individual pets. You have to take the good with the bad.
Pets Do However Leave Their Mark…
As an owner of two dogs that live in our house, I know and have experienced just about any and everything that dogs can do to a carpet. Now, I know it’s not always their fault. I am surprised at how long our labradors (Happy and Reba) can hold it. Nevertheless, there have been times I’m certain their bladders were busting before someone made it home in time to let them outside to “do their business.” Sometimes accidents happen and they let loose on the carpet! I’ve learned from experience that the urine spot on the surface is just the tip of an iceberg. In many instances, the carpet is soaked with urine clear through to the back and pad. This is where the majority of contamination issues cause problems because it’s nearly impossible to remove the deeply embedded deposits from the surface without professional help.
How many times have you NOT had friends come over because the urine odor or stains were a source of embarrassment? How many times have you said to yourself, ”as soon as I have some extra money I’m replacing this *&!*x@*!! carpet”? I know it’s embarrassing and frustrating and makes you mad that you even kept the darn lovable dog or cat.
This is Not a Hopeless Situation!
I understand not all stains & odor are from urine. I have cleaned plenty of tough to remove stains like vomit and poop. I have heard it all many times before and your situation, as the owner of a pet you love and adore, is no different than many others, including myself, that have suffered with the same frustrations and embarrassment. Here are some actual testimonies of people that I have helped and turned me into a superhero!
