Carpet Cleaning for Pets – Remove Pet Stains and Odors

Dog with spots falling off - remove pet stains and odors

Pets bring a lot of love into our homes, but they also bring a lot of stains and odors. No matter how well trained your pet is, accidents happen. Kittens take time to get used to new litter boxes, and excitable pups tend to pee when they get excited. 

Whatever the reason for pet stains, you must act fast, it can become impossible to get out of your carpets. You need to have a plan for cleaning up any urine and stains that might occur in your home. This is why we are here to fix your furry friends’ accidents whenever they happen.

Can Professional Carpet Cleaning Remove Pet Odors?

Professional carpet cleaning services will remove most debris, but shampoo might not be able to remove pet smells completely. Hot water activates the bacteria in the urine, giving it the distinct odor we pet owners have come to dread. Using steam after a carpet shampoo will release the pet odors in your carpets, not get rid of them.

Here at Be Green Carpet Cleaning, saving water and using safer products is our priority. This is why dry foam encapsulation is the best way to remove pet stains and odors from your carpet.

Why Can’t I Use a Traditional Carpet Cleaner?

When using pet stain remover and carpet cleaning products, you’re only focusing on the surface level of your carpets. Household cleaners only deodorizer the surface and temporarily eliminate pet odors while lifting the surface-level waste from your carpet. This method might help tide you over, but it won’t fix the problem in the long term.

Our Pet Stain and Odor Removal Services

Most household carpet cleaning products only treat the surface of your carpet. Products like this are fine for temporarily cleaning the visible part of the animal waste or stains on the carpet. While these products can provide a temporary fix, they won’t remove pet stains and odors longterm.

How to Remove Pet Odors and Stains

We aim to completely remove pet odors and stains from your carpet using our dry encapsulation method of cleaning carpets. Our method provides a more permanent solution than any temporary over-the-counter carpet cleaning product can provide.

Pet Urine Odor Removal

The Be Green all natural solutions remove pet odors and stains quickly. Our proprietary “KillOdorizer” penetrates deep into the carpet’s surface to eliminate all the foul smelling dried urine crystals. Every service comes with a satisfaction guarantee, if you’re not completely happy, then you don’t pay for it!

How Our Pet Stain and Odor Removal Service Works:

Black light identifies dog and cat urine in carpet
A black light will quickly highlight any dog or cat urine stains

Step 1: Evaluate the Situation

Be Green carpet cleaning experts will come to your home and move any furniture that one person can safely move. They will then expertly analyze your home using a blacklight and make note of all the areas that need attention. Removing pet stains and odors starts with identifying sneaky pee spots and hidden animal marking areas in the beginning.

Step 2: Pretreatment – Rake, Vacuum, & Spot Treat

Raking carpet to dislodge dot and cat urine
Raking the carpet will dislodge all the trapped dust & dirt

Using a rake, your service provider will dislodge any trapped dust, dirt, and other solid particles. Carpet raking loosens the solid particles and the stiff nylon bristles comb through the fibers to remove long pet hair. Raking is a painstaking process because it requires stamina and strength. However, it is a crucial step before vacuuming and spraying on the enzyme spotter.

A thorough vacuuming making sure not to miss corners and edges.
A thorough vacuuming covers corners and edges.

After a vigorous raking, your service provider will start vacuuming. Corners and edges will get extra special attention. Professional grade vacuums have their filters cleaned out in-between every appointment. A thorough vacuuming will remove pet hair, dirt, bugs, and fecal matter traffic’d in from pet’s feet. Only fats, oils, germs and bacteria remain. Before applying any new moisture we strive to remove as much dry material as possible. This is important because water + dirt = mud, and mud is much harder to remove!

To begin the spot treatment process, your service provider will spray a fermented spotter enzyme solution all over the fibers. Areas with stubborn stains or heavy soils will get special attention.

Our pretreatment solution is an all natural enzyme solution which contains the active ingredient: Protease (Subtilisin). Before arriving to your home, your service provider will have prepared this spotter solution for weeks ahead of time. This enzyme is a highly reactive organic compound and has fermented for weeks. It actually get’s stronger with age. Once the enzyme is ripe, it becomes super effective at breaking chemical bonds and digesting proteins. Next, the spotting solution get’s applied everywhere (sprayed). This is where the magic starts to happen: a chemical reaction breaks down the proteins, fats, and oils which dissipate into basic amino acids, peptides, and carbon molecules. Of course, this treatment is safe for pets and children. Carbon detectors may trigger the alarms. This is not uncommon, it just means the organic chemical reaction is working! Standard ventilation will displace the air quickly.

Step 3: Shampoo – Cleanse the Carpet

Carpet Shampoo

After the spot treatment, your service provider will message the carpet with a bubbly foam shampoo and citric acid mixture. The carpet shampoo is a surfactant soap and will unfold the left over proteins, leaving behind zero residue. Additionally, the citric acid acts as an all natural brightener to make the white’s whiter and colors more vivid. Citric acid is less harsh than chemicals like hydrogen peroxide or bleach. Fun fact: citric acid is an organic compound and abundantly found in nature. It’s what makes oranges, lemons and limes taste so sour!

During the shampoo, Be Green service providers are careful to not to “soak” the carpet. Keeping the moisture content as low as possible helps prevent mildew, mold and other bacteria regrowth. This is where your carpets get the refreshing bath they deserve. All of the previously sticky and gummed up carpet fibers will now be clean and smoothed.

After the shampoo, the carpets immediately begin to look cleaner and brighter. However, pungent odors from dog or cat urine may smell even worse now that the moisture has reactivated pee spots. Pet owners should additionally purchase deodorizer and stain guard (protection) described in the next steps.

Step 4: Disinfect and Deodorize

After your carpet has been shampoo’d, the carpet will look much brighter and feel rejuvenated to the touch. But looks aren’t everything! The only thing that’s going to remove pet stains and odors is KillOdorizer (our powerfully effective deodorizing solution). The strength of the deodorizer solution varies because it depends on the severity of your issue. Everybody’s home is different and our beloved pets always find ways to leave behind messes. Even the most strictly trained animals find hidden places to mark their territory, it’s just in their instinctual nature. We love our pets so much, but their outdoor tendencies can be a real pain. Trust us, we’ve seen it all!

KillOdorizer work’s wonders because it has two primary active ingredients: methyl alcohol, and all natural essential oils. The methyl alcohol is the sanitizing disinfection agent, which quickly destroys germs, bacteria, and animal waste festering in the carpet. The essential oils provide a refreshing light fragrance to enhance the feeling of your newly cleaned carpet. KillOdorizer is available in several different scents and the fragrances are extracted from all natural plant and other fruit sources.

(Optional but necessary for pet accidents)

As mentioned above, adding a deodorizer is an optional purchase because it’s application varies drastically from home to home. Severely soiled areas require multiple applications of disinfectant, while other areas may only need 1 single application to smell fantastic. Your service provider will analyze every area with a blacklight to determine how many applications of disinfectant your home needs. We often find pet accidents in hidden areas. Regardless, you can’t go wrong by adding applications of KillOdorizer onto your order. Keep in mind: some rooms may need more, while some rooms may need less.

Step 5: Soil Retardant (Optional)

Finally, fully protect your carpets with a high quality stain guard. You may choose to add on an application of stain guard protection. Our soil retardant is like a force field against future stains and pet accidents. Although it will not train your cat to use a toilet, or show your dog to the doggy door, it will provide a silicone based protective layer to your carpet fibers which makes pet urine & other accidents much easier to clean up in between professional cleanings. Soil Retardant is the cherry on top add on to help you protect your investment and keep your carpets looking and smelling fresh all year long.

Pet Carpet Stain Cleaning Tips

When pet accidents happen in your home, acting quickly is extremely important. If you find a fresh urine stain or pet waste, you may be able to prevent long-term staining and odors with the proper methods.

  • Pick up waste: If your pet has thrown up or defecated on your carpet, pick up as much as possible before focusing on the stain.
  • Blot the stain: Apply a clean, dry cloth over the stain and press down firmly to absorb any moisture. Avoid rubbing, as this can rub the stain into the fibers of your carpet. 
  • Rinse the stain: Using a wet clean cloth, apply it to the stain until the area is damp. You don’t want to soak your carpet; if you add too much water, the urine or stain will soak deeper into the carpet.
  • Blot the area until dry: Apply another clean cloth to blot the rinsed area. Repeat until there is no more liquid to absorb.
  • Repeat steps 2 and 3: Repeat these steps until there are no more stains visible and as little odor as possible.
  • Note: There are some pet & child friendly natural house hold cleaning solutions available for DIY use, although you should read the labels carefully and make sure to follow the instructions as best you can. We’re happy to refer you to our friends over at The Pet Fix for handheld spray solutions that you can use yourself. Just keep in mind, these solutions may work well temporarily, but they will not come anywhere close to providing a full on professional carpet cleaning from a Be Green Service Provider.

If your pet stain has settled or leaked into the subfloor, this method won’t work. However, this process will work on fresh stains, so try to catch them as soon as possible.

Using these methods, you can easily help prevent accident stains and help take any old stains and odors out of your carpet for good.

Be Green Carpet Cleaning’s Commitment To Sustainability

Be Green Carpet Cleaning is about more than just making your carpets clean. Because we’re a green business, we know it takes more than just reducing our waste and choosing sustainable materials. We hope to one day be one of the most sustainable cleaning companies and continue to make a difference in our communities.

Be Green Carpet Cleaning is focused on company sustainability and going green as a core part of our business model. Carpet cleaning uses many resources, from the chemicals that remove dirt to the water used in the service.

This is why we focus on saving water and using eco-friendly products and techniques such as dry foam encapsulation rather than traditional “steam cleaning” or hot water extraction.

Who is Be Green Carpet Cleaning?

Be Green Carpet Cleaning brings sustainability to more than just our dry carpet cleaning and disinfecting services. We also work to provide our customers with healthier living spaces. With a shared love for sustainability and excellence, our service providers and administrative staff work together to make Be Green Carpet Cleaning a sustainable business today.

Be Green Carpet Cleaning Sustainability

You won’t find greenwashing in our sustainability efforts. Instead, you’ll find that we are intentional as a business to be more eco-friendly. We have worked hard to establish best practices within Be Green Carpet Cleaning, but we know that sustainability requires more than just what we do within our own business. One of the ways we’ve chosen to do this is by partnering with One Tree Planted.

Why Work with a Green Business?

Every little thing we can do for the environment makes a big difference. While efforts such as compostable packaging or green cleaning products might feel small, they make a significant positive impact over time. 

Environmentally friendly companies can do several things to help their business be more green:

  • Make eco-friendly charitable donations
  • Choose green suppliers and manufacturers
  • Make sustainability part of their core values
  • Utilize green energy whenever possible
  • …and so much more!

Our choice to make our business more sustainable stems from being aware of the issues, and understanding how we can make changes to contribute to a cleaner future for our planet. 

We have established company sustainability in a few core areas of our business:

  • Working with natural and organic cleaning agents
  • Minimizing waste and using sustainable materials
  • Purchasing green equipment and products
  • Lowering energy and water consumption and improving efficiency
  • Equal and fair opportunities for staff and service providers

One-for-One Be Green Carpet Cleaning Company Sustainability Efforts

Sustainability isn’t something one business or one person can do alone, which is why we’ve chosen to contribute to One Tree Planted. One Tree Planted has planted over 40 million trees across the globe since 2014 and shares our vision of a greener world.

Through donations from our services, One Tree Planted works with its partners to grow saplings and plant them during rainy seasons. Trees are monitored to ensure growth, and then they report your impact! Through this green company, we can aid in environmental conservation and restoration and help with global reforestation efforts.

Be Green is committed to planting a tree for every service we provide to our customers. 

We have begun contributing to One Tree Planted this year, and with their help, we intend to become one of the most sustainable green companies.

Here’s how many trees we’ve planted: 2,716

How Does One Tree Planted Fit Into Be Green Carpet Cleaning?

One Tree Planted has the vision to make it easy for anyone to help the environment and make planting trees sustainable for anyone.  

For every dollar donated, One Tree Planted will plant one tree. 

Through their partnerships with U.S. Forest Service, U.S. State Forest, and Conservation District, they can plant trees in various areas across the United States.

One Tree Planted shares many of our core sustainability values, making them the perfect way for us to make eco-friendly charitable contributions. While cleaning carpets and upholstery is our specialty, planted trees are One Tree Planted’s specialty.

Why Plant Trees?

Trees are a lot more helpful than we often give them credit for. They clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitats for over 80% of the world’s terrestrial fauna. These forests also provide jobs to over a billion people and are a vital ingredient in nearly a quarter of all medicines.

One Tree Planted plants trees in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific. They have planted trees in more than a dozen US states, three Canadian provinces, and Mexico in North America alone.

In the wake of major wildfires across California, many of their restoration projects have been focused on repairing damage caused by resource extraction, restoring forests, and even protecting endangered Orcas through their sustainability efforts.

How Much Does it Cost to Plant a Tree?

One Tree Planted has more than doubled the number of trees planted yearly since it began in 2014. They have dedicated extensive time and effort to make it easier for everyone to give back to the environment. One Tree Planted is committed to planting one tree for every $1 donated. 

You may be thinking to yourself, how can you plant a tree for only $1? The answer isn’t very simple, and the cost of planting a tree can vary quite a bit based on location and project size. This is why they work with local planting partners to lay out where, why, and how the trees will be planted.

The direct costs of planting trees are:

  • Seed/seedlings (typically $0.30 to $0.80 per tree)
  • Site preparation & planting (typically $0.20 to $0.50 per tree)
  • Equipment & materials (typically $0.05 to $0.20 per tree)
  • Site monitoring & maintenance for three years (typically $0.30 to $1 per tree)

One Tree Planted covers the cost of the seed and seedlings at a minimum, and everything else is covered within their one-tree planted model.

How Can You Join The Mission?

You are already helping One Tree Planted by purchasing any of our services. One Tree Planted will plant a tree for every service we provide our customers. By choosing Be Green as your trusted service provider, you are also planting more trees!
