This could be carpets, baseboards, subfloors, and more.

This basic step is an important one in the odor cleaning process.

Wet Dog / Musty Pet Odor

This odor is extremely tricky to remove – but it is possible, because we successfully do it all the time!

What is it and how do you get rid of it?

It can take up to 4 stages to remove a “wet dog” odor. Why? This odor comes from the oils in pet hair. When those oils come in contact with humidity, the bacteria (attracted to the oil), emits a “fragrance”. If your dealing with this problem you already know what that “fragrance” is.

Why is it tricky to remove? The pet hair weaves itself into the very fibers of your carpet, so it is now, part of the floor covering itself.

If it gets wet, it sticks to the carpet fibers in a way where they cannot be removed. So…


Dry removal must take place, of as much pet hair and insolubles as possible before beginning the clean. We do this by lifting the carpet pile, and extracting as much as possible (dedicated time), to remove the pet hair.


Treat for oils with an all natural product that encapsulates, and dissolves the odor causing bacteria. We then aash the carpet, with special cleaning agents designed to remove the fatty acids and minerals from the area. Then we finish with a final clean and sanitize of all affected areas
