carpet odors

Let’s face it. It is embarrassing to have any odors in your home. Nothing is worse than having guests over and subjecting them to an unpleasant smell. One of the common sources for odors in a home is the carpet. What causes carpet odors?

You won’t be surprised to hear the carpet stains are often a source for carpet odors. There is no end to the types of stains that could create a bad smell in your carpet. Food stains will rot and cause an unpleasant smell. You can also spill cleaning solutions and chemicals that create abrasive odors in your home and carpet.

The carpet stain with the most potent odor is pet urine. Pet urine contains ammonia, bacteria, acid and hormones. The smell is extremely unpleasant and it can lead to future accidents on your carpet. That is because the smell of urine encourages your pet to continue urinating on that spot of carpet.

Chem-Dry of Bexar County in San Antonio offers P.U.R.T.® pet urine removal treatment for pet urine stains. P.U.R.T. prevents further damage from urine and removes 99% of the odors from the stains.

You will also notice that wet carpet produces bad odors. Carpet that is wet creates a musty smell and wet carpet can lead to mold too. Carpet mold has its own unique smell and it can be dangerous to breathe it in. You will find wet carpet in damp and dark rooms of your home or after water damage occurs.

There are San Antonio carpet cleaners that use too much water for their service. This can result in carpet getting too wet and not drying fast enough. The longer a carpet is wet the better chance for odors and mold growth to occur.
