Fall is in the air and Halloween is just around the corner! This is a common season for do-it-yourself projects—like homemade Halloween costumes, spooky decor, and pumpkin-flavored treats. While you may be tempted to take on pet urine and odor removal, too, there are a few key reasons why this isn’t a project you shouldn’t do yourself.

Why It’s “Scary” To Remove Pet Stains And Odors On Your Own

When it comes to pet stain and odor removal, the wrong methods can actually make the problem worse. Do-it-yourself methods can remove visible stains for a while, but these spots and odors can come back worse than ever unless treated properly.

When pets urinate on the carpet—often in the same place over and over—the stain seeps deep below the carpet into the backing and padding underneath. When the moisture begins to dry and the stain may no longer be visible, you may think the odor is gone, too. However, potent, odor-filled crystals are left trapped beneath. These crystals will continue releasing odor into the air unless professionally removed.

Bottom line: even the best DIY methods won’t completely eliminate odors. A professional pet urine removal treatment is needed.

Here’s another important fact to consider. If you have pets or children in the home, it’s crucial to use non-toxic cleaning solutions that won’t harm them. Because of this, a lot of pet owners make their own cleaning solutions out of vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. But the problem is, these solutions can discolor your carpet and aren’t effective at removing odor crystals.

Do-it-yourself methods also require the use of too much water—increasing the risk for mold and mildew growth.
