With severe pet odor problems, the urine has made its way into the sub floor. If the affected area is carpet only, meaning no walls, baseboards, furniture or drapes, it can still be removed. However, it may require additional steps including:
- Pulling back the carpet and replacing the pad.
- Cleaning the backing of the carpet.
- Treating or even sealing the sub floor.
If the affected area includes walls, baseboards, furniture or drapes, the effort required to remove the odor becomes much greater. Replacement of baseboards or drywall may be required to completely remove the odor.
