How are pet stains and odor removed from carpets?
Cats and dogs are not known to sweat; hence their urinary discharge contains high levels of alkali salts that attract moisture from the air. Therefore, their urine never dries quickly, and often becomes a breeding place for bacteria and mold which causes stain, discoloration and odor. For minor pet stains, Carpet Cleaning San Francisco professionals stress that these can be removed using a combination of germicidal and enzyme rug cleaners. But for major stains, a complete floor treatment and pad replacement may be required.
In spot cleaning, do I simply use water or mix it with cleaning solution?
New technologies have made carpets with fibers that do not attract a number of stains; therefore spraying water is enough to remove them. However, if you still use old-fashioned rugs in your home, it is sufficient to use a solution of water and an appropriate carpet cleaning agent to treat spots. If it leaves solid particles behind, a vacuum cleaner should be done afterwards.
Will the presence of pets affect carpet cleaning frequency?
The frequency of carpet cleaning would be determined by different parameters within each home and the presence of pets is definitely one of them. Pet hair is found all around the house. Pets leave behind them odors and their urination or dirt on carpets and sofas must be cleaned immediately to protect your health. In fact, pet stain & odor removal must take place as often as possible for the benefit of your health.
Why can I still smell the bad odor after I have cleaned a pet stain?

Deodorants will not resolve the issue either.
Should I try and clean my own carpets?
