Pet Odor Treatment
The team at Zerorez® loves their pets. As loyal pet owners, we also understand accidents happen. If not properly treated, biological matter, such as urine, can create a breeding ground for bacteria and an unhealthy indoor environment, causing odor and discoloration in your floors.
What Causes the Odor and Discoloration?
As urine dries, a bacterial and chemical change occurs. Acidic urine becomes alkaline, forming urea salts that attract moisture and can keep odor-causing bacteria alive for years. Urine is acidic when it enters carpet, and it oxidizes as it dries. This causes the yellowing effect you may see in your floors. Oxidation, along with the ammonia and other components of urine, can permanently dye the color of your carpet.
