Pets are wonderful…of that there can be no doubt. The unconditional love pets give their owners has enduring value. The thought of going through life without one’s prize pet seems unbearable.
The benefits of pet ownership are slightly offset by the sometimes-erratic behaviors and traits of individual pets. You have to take the good with the bad.
Pets do however leave their mark…
* FUR! Hair shedding and animal dander are allergens that contribute to asthmatic symptoms for many people. Pieces of pet hair firmly embed in carpets, rugs, furniture, and even draperies. It’s virtually impossible to remove it all, but professional cleaning is recommended frequently to control the fur problem.
* OILS! Pets secrete oils from their fur and feet that leave a residue on your carpets and flooring surfaces. This oily residue also penetrates deep into upholstered furniture, contributing to the accumulation of smelly, hard-to-clean soil deposits.
* SMELLY ODORS! Many pet owners do not realize that their home has an odor problem because their sense of smell becomes acclimated to the malodors over time. Guests can tell immediately if you have a pet unless you’ve been very diligent with cleaning. That’s where we come in! The oils from fur have a distinctive odor. Have you ever gone into someone’s home that smells like “dog” or “cat”? All pets secrete an oily residue that gets on your furnishings.
Some animals literally use carpets as a bathroom. It’s unpleasant to think about it, but it’s true. Most very young and old animals have “accidents”. The trouble is, for every time you know they defecate or urinate on the carpet, they probably are going 2-3 times! Urine is a menace to your furnishings because it destroys fibers and resists cleaning processes because of a waxy, sticky residue that is left after the moisture evaporates.
In many instances, the carpet is soaked with urine clear through to the back and pad. This is where the majority of contamination issues cause problems because it’s impossible to remove the deeply embedded deposits from the surface without professional help.

Russ ... I am so pleased with the job you did! The change is just downright remarkable. I'm just so happy. Thank you so very much. ~ Karen Dearborn
As usual, you did another great job on my carpets. With my muddy dog, and my spilling things all the time, that carpet does get used, but you always make it look brand new. Thanks again. Ruth ~ Dr. Ruth Simkin
Super happy with the cleaning job yesterday! Harvey the French bulldog was impressed, as you got out stains the last 2 carpet cleaners we used couldn't. We will see you again in the spring. ~ Michael James
