Pet Odor Treatment

Pet Odor Treatment

Zerorez® understands accidents happen, causing odor and discoloration in your floors. If not properly treated, biological matter, such as urine, can create a breeding ground for bacteria and an unhealthy indoor environment.

Tackling Pet Odors

A pet owner’s major concern is how to get pet smells out of their home. Traditional carpet cleaners often address the carpet surface, by trying to clean the visible animal waste, leaving a potentially much larger problem underneath the carpet—in the carpet backing and pad, the floor’s subsurface and sometimes the baseboards and walls. Traditional carpet cleaners often simply mask remaining odors by spreading perfumes, oils or other odor masking agents, offering only temporary results. 

Discoloration & Odor

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 urochrome in urine, can permanently dye the color of your carpet. With Zerorez® Biological Matter Treatment, we treat the contaminated fibers to remove as much as much of this yellowing as possible.


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. In order to safely and effectively clean your home, biological matter must first be neutralized to destroy bacteria, fighting odor at its source. Zerorez® cleans in one of two ways with the help of Zr Disinfect™:

  • A topical treatment that cleans only the carpet fibers
  • A sub-surface treatment that will address the urine in the backing of the carpet and the pad below.
