All You Need to Know About How to Get Odor out of Carpet

We love pets! They’re like having furry little children who never grow up.

But you know how when you live with someone – even furry little someones – you suddenly become very aware of all their little quirks… and their smells.

No matter who you share your home with – dogs, cats, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, bunny rabbits – chances are, you’ve noticed something about your beloved animal friends. They stink. (Especially ferrets. Sorry, not sorry, ferrets.)

What’s worse, when those nasty aromas settle into your home’s carpets and upholstery, you can pick up your pet’s scent even when they’re not around.

Zerorez® of the DC Metro is here to help.

First, we’ll demonstrate why we’re the best odor remover for carpet in Metro DC and Northern Virginia.

Then, we’ll share a few of our favorite do-it-yourself carpet odor removal home remedies – so you can be your own best carpet odor remover!

What Makes Zerorez® DC’s Top Pet Odor Remover for Carpet and Rug?

Odor. It’s only natural. Animals give off a variety of aromas, and a foul smell is in the nose of the beholder.

But when your nose tells you the pungency is too much to take, put Zerorez® DC on the case.

Your nose knows. Pet urine seeps past carpet fibers and through the carpet backing all the way to the subfloor and baseboard, where it corrodes the wood and provides a breeding ground for bacteria.

That’s why Zerorez® DC offers a special pet odor remover treatment. We strengthen our Platinum-rated ZR3 process with a pad-extraction procedure that cleans carpets far deeper than most professional carpet cleaning companies can.

Thanks to the power of zr water®, most pet odors and stains can be removed by a single Zerorez® carpet cleaning. Extremely severe cases of damage might require professional carpet repair services, however.

The All-Natural Carpet Pet-Odor Remover

Go natural when looking for an effective urine odor remover for carpet and rug. Choose the Zerorez® green cleaning solution for your next pet odor carpet treatment

Harsh soaps, messy detergents and chemical-based cleaning solutions with perfumes and oils only cover up pet odors. When they waft away into the air (where your family breathes in those chemicals), that stench comes back.

Zr water® is the best carpet cleaner for pet urine. Zr water® is oxidized at the molecular level in order to bind with particles in the stain and remove them – along with the odors they cause.

And that’s why Zerorez® DC is the best carpet cleaner for old pet urine in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.

Just Found an Accident? Need a Fast Carpet Odor Eliminator? DIY!

New spot from Spot? Act fast to keep it from reaching the carpet backing. Use these handy carpet pet-odor remover tips:

Tip 1: Baking soda absorbs pet odors.

For simple carpet odor removal, baking soda works wonders. Sprinkle a generous amount on top of the stain and pat it into the carpet fibers. Come back the next day and vacuum it up.

Tip 2: Don’t rub that rug! Blot the spot instead!

You want to soak up as much urine as possible, as soon as possible. But be careful! Rubbing just spreads the stain around. Use a blotting motion to dry urine stains out of carpets.

Tip 3: Making a homemade carpet pet-odor remover? Give it a sniff first.

A common ingredient in many tips for carpet pet-odor removal? Vinegar. But we discourage using vinegar to clean up natural dog urine or cat urine.

Vinegar has its own strong odor, and your pet might think that’s the place to go. If you’re looking for how to get rid of pet odor in carpet, any home remedy should stick to plain water.

Or better yet, zr water®.
