Pet Odor in Carpets
LESLIE: Doris in Texas is calling in with a flooring situation. What can we do for you?
DORIS: Well, I have carpet. The dogs have been in the room and it smells bad and I can’t get the odor out. What would be a good thing to use to get the odor out of the carpet?
LESLIE: Mm-hmm. When it comes to dealing with pet odor, the important thing to remember is that the reason why you have that odor is that it’s a bacterial sort of remnant that remains; whether it’s from, you know, just a wet dog or perhaps an accident.
But there are some products out there that are made with almost like a living enzyme that attack that bacteria and get rid of that odor. And a really good one is a kit and it’s called the 1-2-3 Odor Free Kit and it’s from a professional cleaning company. They started this business for homeowners to deal with pet odor and the website is JustRite.com, except Rite is R-i-t-e.com; so JustRite.com.
You’ll get the kit; follow the directions exactly. It’s sort of a step-by-step; you have to inject one thing into the carpet pad and then put a wet towel. It’s kind of a five-step process but it really works. We used it when we first got our dog and she wasn’t housebroken and she had some accidents in the carpeting and it’s gone; you would never know that anything ever happened.
DORIS: OK. I’ll try that.
LESLIE: Alright. Good luck with that.
DORIS: So thank you.
TOM: Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
