LESLIE: Pedro in South Carolina, what can we do for you today here at the Money Pit?
PEDRO: Hi, I wanted to call because, see, we’re in the house now and I got married and my wife – who’s my wife now – she has seven dogs.
LESLIE: Oh, my goodness.
PEDRO: Yeah, but they’re very well trained.
PEDRO: She has a pet door, so they go in and out; you know, no problem.
PEDRO: But she also does rescue for the state of South Carolina.
LESLIE: And they are not trained so well.
TOM: Yeah, they’re not trained so well.
PEDRO: Right. And what – it’s not like I’m walking around on a sponge here; you know, all slopped up. Like every once in a while there is something. And I don’t want to – I don’t know if what the damage or what’s the best way to clear that up. Is it – do I have to replace? Is there something I can do to clean? Because I don’t know what’s going on under the carpet.
LESLIE: I would save – Pedro, the first step is definitely trying to attack it itself and do some cleaning before you think about pulling out carpet, pulling out padding and seeing what’s going on with the subfloor. There’s a product called Just Rite. R-i-t-e is how they spell Rite. JustRite.com. And it’s a series of different components that are sort of all organic in the fact that these little enzymes attack the bacteria that’s in the pet urine that – you know …
LESLIE: … makes the odor that makes it last. So there’s like a syringe that you inject one into the carpeting pad and it really does get rid of the odor because it’s getting rid of the source of it. And if you’re dealing with only, you know, limited accidents here and there with these rescues it really can make a huge difference. The kit is affordable and it’s definitely worth it and it’ll last for ages. You know, we got it when we were training our puppy and she was having some accidents and you would never even know that there was a problem.
PEDRO: Oh, that’s great because the first thing the cleaning guy did was recommend that we replace and it ends up – we ended up finding out that he had a stake in the carpet (inaudible) that we wanted us to replace.
LESLIE: Of course.
TOM: (laughing) That’s terrible. Here you guys are trying to do the right thing and rescue animals and the cleaning guys trying to sell you new carpet.
PEDRO: Yeah, it’s hard to turn to (ph) anybody. That’s why when I heard your show …
PEDRO: … I said these are the people to ask.
TOM: JustRite.com is the product.
PEDRO: Thank you so much.
TOM: You’re welcome. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT. 888-666-3974.
