Since many pet urine stains are invisible to the naked eye, you can use a handheld blacklight to spot them. Just turn the lights out and move the blacklight around the room, a few inches above the carpet, until you spot the conspicuous glow of a urine stain. Then tackle the stain immediately.Often times the pet urine appears to dry and the smell is not as noticeable until either the humidity increases (and isn’t that often the case here in Florida?) or until the carpet is cleaned or dampened. Even if the first cause of odor (bacteria) is treated , the naturally occuring salts and crystals left behind from the dried urine can be “triggered” or activated when coming into contact with moisture.

In addition to treating with enzymes that kill the odor causing bacteria, we also clean the carpet in a way that removes these urine salts & crystals from the carpet’s fibers.
