That Stinks! The Impact of Pet Urine

Ew! Did Fluffy and Fido leave their mark on your carpet again? We love our furry friends, but we don’t like the stains that they leave behind on our carpets. Once the smell sinks into the carpet, the chances of your pet going back to the same spot are very high. Pet urine can be diverse, depending on the makeup of the urine. Depending on your pet’s health, diet and reproductive cycle, the variations are the deciding factors if you’ll be able to remove stains or not. At Sams, we know that pet damage is more than what you see on the surface. With a proper inspection, the Sams team will identify the best course of action to clean the stains and remove the odor.

Although all accidents will leave permanent stains, urine still has the power to affect the dyes used in carpet. Dyes may change colors immediately after contact with urine, while others may take weeks or months before experiencing a reaction. Stains can soon become permanent spots after it develops slowly and time starts to pass. After the deposit, many times, the moisture can weaken the bond between the layers of the carpet, separating the layers and seams.

Another problem to consider, is cat urine. All urine is bad, but cat pee isn’t just disgusting, it’s also dangerous. Urine from your cat can harm your health, and the waste that these pets carry could cause illness. Would you want to come home to the smell of urine? We think the smell of cinnamon rolls, crispy bacon or a field of fresh, wild flowers sounds a little nicer. Not only will the urine smell have an effect on your mood, but if you have a respiratory condition the strong odor can irritate and harm your lungs. It’s important that you’re not exposed to the frequency of the odor in your household.

In order to locate all urine-saturated spots, you have to be mindful and understand that all stains aren’t on the surface but some may have seeped underneath the carpet. Sams is aware of the impact of accidents seeping its way down to the padding and passing on the subfloor. When it comes to cleaning, focusing on the surface doesn’t solve the problem. Whether the damage is minimal or not, Sams will evaluate the many possibilities of how the carpet is damaged.

If it’s a minor impact, our trained technicians will perform regular cleaning duties and use enzymes to remove the odor, which will do the trick for minor causes. For repeat offenders, we will conduct a thorough inspection to assess the severity of damage done. We will use a special light on questionable areas. The Sams team might even pull the carpet and pad back to identify what damage has been done. We offer services that eliminates odors from your home. Whether is pets or cigarette smoke, Sams doesn’t mask the odors, but we look to eliminate them.

When you hire the Sams team, you’re hiring trained technicians who care. These technicians will make sure you have the information needed to make educated decisions on when an appropriate job is done right. We’re committed to excellence, professionalism and respect that raises the bar of carpet repair, carpet cleaning and much more.

Missouri State Treasurer, Clint Zweisfel, Visited Sams Carpet Cleaning & Repairs

Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel was in St. Charles visiting and making an announcement at Sams Carpet Cleaning & Repairs to provide a low-interest loan through the Missouri Linked Deposit Program. Clint mentioned “Job creation and moving Missouri’s economy forward in a fiscally sound manner are my top priorities. Giving small business like Sams Carpet Cleaning & Repairs the ability to reduce interest costs lets them invest in an economic turnaround.” For a small business owner like myself, the cost savings and extra capital comes at a great time and allows us to invest in updating our locally-owned and operated business, Jeff Sams said.
