It is important to note that when carpet odors become noticeable the problem with your carpets may already be very serious and need immediate attention. The first step will be to uncover and remove the source of the odor and then clean thoroughly and quickly. Once an odor has established itself in your carpet, routine cleaning won’t solve the problem because it will need a deep flushing of contaminants using hot water extraction using a sub-surface tool.
Once that has been done you may find that hot water extraction may not be enough for strong offensive odors, it will sometimes be necessary to apply a deodorizing agent or odor neutralizer. Deciding which neutralizer will be the next challenge because there are a broad spectrum of agents available designed for various specific types of odors such as mildew, food, human waste etc. It is critical that the professional commercial cleaning company technicians know the source of the odor before they use the wrong chemical.
Professional cleaners will test the chemical on a small piece of carpeting to see if the treatment will work before neutralizing the entire carpet. That will prevent a waste of time and money and make it more likely that you will have a successful cleaning. If the neutralizer works and alleviates the odor the entire carpet can then be treated. If the carpet is not glued down a cleaner will probably remove it or detach it and treat the carpet backing as well as the neutralizing agent to make contact with what is causing the odor. This process allows the team to access any odor issues in the sub floor and replace padding if necessary.
Again it is imperative to have your professional commercial cleaning company to do this work as it is necessary to use strong chemicals in the process and they have the knowledge and tools to complete the task quickly and successfully. Removing odors is a daunting challenge and the main goal is to eliminate odors not mask them as masking them will prolong the problem and doesn’t address the underlying cause. Sometimes the only solution is to remove the carpet but if you quickly get professional help chances are a more affordable solution will be successful.
