Pet Urine Odor Removal Cleaning Nashville TN
Big Bear Floor Care of Nashville specializes in Pet OOPS! Cleaning - Pet Urine & Odor Removal!
We are known for specializing in the variety of pet damages that occur in the home. How we handle such damage depends on the damage source, the frequency, where it is located, how long it has been there, whether it is a cat or dog, etc. It is not uncommon to get an emergency call regarding pet damage because an animal got sick; most often occurring during the night. When an animal has an accident, fabric discoloration can occur caused by what it ate, the medicine it is taking, or the intensity of its stomach acids. We do a thorough inspection on arriving at our clients' home; this may include using a special light to see exactly where the damage is if it's not visible to the human eye.
Some examples of what we normally see with pet oops! accidents include urine, feces, vomit, hairballs, territorial marking on carpet, walls, upholstery and rugs, blood from clipping nails and many other situations. Your dog or cat sheds hair daily so you will have pet hair throughout your home deposited on your carpet, which can cause allergies. It is almost impossible to vacuum the pet hair up with any ordinary household vacuum. Before we get started cleaning we always use our true HEPA backpack vacuum to pre-vacuum your floors, which is able to trap at least 99.97 percent of particles of .3 microns. We are a true green cleaner & this is only one step to our "green" cleaning services.
Pet Damage Cleaning (Pet Urine/Odor Removal) will range from just normal cleaning and nothing else, to applying topical solutions for odor after cleaning, flooding the area with a special odor neutralizing solution, executing stain/odor extraction with our Bear Claw Tool used for sub-surface treatment or completely removing the carpet to replace the pad and clean and treat both sides of carpet. As you can see, Big Bear Floor Care of Nashville has the expertise to handle any situation. We get amazing results, not only because of our expertise, but also because of the heat and power of the equipment we use, our Big Bear Truck!
This shows the damage under a urine detection light that you may or may not see visibly. This is our new home that we bought last year after we lost our home to a fire on May 4th, 2015. Once people move out you can usually see and smell damage if you didn't before. The urine contamination was so bad that it was in every room, closet and stairs that were carpeted in our 3500 sf home.
See the urine contamination in these pictures. This carpet was taken up, the floors sealed with a shellac sealer and new carpet and pad was installed!
These next 4 pictures are showing you what the urine contamination looked like under the carpet. It doesn't even look as bad on top as it does underneath the carpet. The odor was so bad too and the pad was saturated....that's why you see the damage was so bad it had gotten down into the sub floor. If you don't tear out, seal the floors and replace then you will still have problems with odors and staining wicking back up through new pad and carpet. We could not bring our two dogs into a home that had previous damage from other dogs and possibly cat to our new home. We picked out a nice, plush nylon carpet and a good pad to replace. This carpet was almost 10 yrs old, so no telling how long the pets had been doing this.
These next few pictures show the urine damage to the sub floor...this was throughout the whole house. The dog had been urinating on the carpet for a long time, possibly the whole time it's been living there. Small dogs usually cannot hold their bladder for too long, so you see them doing more damage than others.
These next few pictures show the special sealer/shellac that we had to apply before we had new pad and carpet installed. This does not have a pleasant odor to it, but we ventilated everything and used an odor machine to help with the smell of the shellac. Our dogs are enjoying the home and they have not smelled anything at all because we took all the necessary precautions to get rid of the odor before we even let them come to the home for the first time.
Next came painting the whole house because there was a cat in the home and I am allergic to cats. So, we had to paint everything and thoroughly clean and wipe down all surfaces. Then, carpet and pad was installed and hardwood floors sanded and refinished because of damage to them as well. It took us 2 months after we closed on our home that was supposed to be move in ready to be "move in ready" for us. These are all things to look for when buying a new home. We were so devastated last year so we weren't our normal selves since we had lost everything we owned and our home to the fire a few months before this, so we didn't see this until after closing.
