Having a pet is one of life’s greatest joys, but dealing with pet odors is not. You love your furry friend, but the last thing you want is for your home to announce their presence before anyone sees them. If you’ve become nose-blind to your home’s pet smell, don’t worry. You don’t have to be stuck with it forever. The bulk of the odor is most likely hiding in your carpets, especially if your pets mark their territory or have accidents. In this guide, we’ll show you how to keep your home fresh and clean, with the help of Arevalo Bros Chem-Dry in Chicago, IL.

Why Pet Odors Linger

Pet odors tend to linger in homes due to a variety of reasons. Understanding these reasons is key to effectively dealing with them.

Firstly, pets often have accidents that go unnoticed. Urine can seep deep into carpet fibers and even into the padding underneath, causing long-lasting smells. Secondly, pets shed fur and dander, which can build up over time, contributing to a musty smell. Lastly, pets can track in dirt and other outdoor elements, adding to the odor problem.

Knowing why these smells persist helps us tackle the issue at its root.

How to Avoid Pet Odors in Your Home

Of course, the best way to get rid of pet odors is to avoid them in the first place. Here are some proactive steps you can take:

Regular Grooming

Keeping your pet well-groomed is essential. Regular baths and grooming sessions will reduce the amount of fur and dander in your home. Make it a habit to brush your pet’s fur and check for any odors.

Clean Up Immediately

Don’t allow your pets to roam your home while they are wet or muddy. This will prevent them from spreading dirt and moisture, which can lead to odors. Make sure to take your dogs out regularly and keep litter boxes clean to avoid bathroom accidents.

Vacuum Often

Vacuuming your carpet and upholstered furniture regularly will remove loose fur and dander. This simple step can significantly lessen the remaining odor. A high-quality vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter is a worthwhile investment for pet owners.

Tackle Accidents Quickly

Accidents happen, and it’s crucial to address them as soon as they occur. Use a clean, white rag to soak up fresh urine. Then, give Arevalo Bros Chem-Dry in Chicago, IL a call at (708) 795-5932 to handle the rest.

How Our Professional Carpet Cleaners Remove Odors

At Arevalo Bros Chem-Dry, we pride ourselves on our ability to remove odors from the source. Unlike some other cleaning products that merely mask the smell, our process ensures that the odors are eliminated.

We employ a specialty service known as P.U.R.T.® (Pet Urine Removal Treatment) to remove most urine odors* and unsightly stains. This process is gentle on delicate carpet fibers and safe for use in homes with pets.


It’s rare for a pet accident to be a one-time event. Where there’s one noticeable urine stain, there are likely more hiding from view. Because urine stains can be difficult to spot, we use an ultraviolet light to examine your carpet for hidden stains. This allows us to pinpoint the exact location of pet urine.

Treatment Application

Once we’ve found the source of pet odors, we target these spots with our P.U.R.T. process. This treatment works by destroying the molecules that cause odors. It penetrates all the way to the backing of the carpet, where urine crystals can evade vacuum cleaners and conventional carpet cleaning processes.

Hot Carbonating Extraction

We finish off the cleaning process using our unique carpet cleaning system called Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE). Through the natural power of carbonation, this process gets rid of deeply embedded soil and lifts any remaining waste from the carpet for swift removal.
