A home owner called us with an unusual issue. They had a beloved, aging cat that kept getting confused and used the fireplace as a kitty little box. It had seeped into the brick and it was holding odor. They had tried cleaning it their selves but had not had any luck. The urine ammonia odor seemed to grow stronger each day.
We put one of our IICRC Odor Control certified managers on the case. First, we placed an air scrubber with a carbon filter. The carbon filter is adsorbent which adsorbs odor molecules. Additionally, we placed a dehumidifier to draw out any moisture. Next, HEPA vacuumed all the loose soils. Following up that, we used an enzymatic cleaning solution to do a wet cleaning. We also then sprayed the enzymatic once more and let it dwell. We let things run for 48 hours and the odor was gone. Another successful odor issue solved!
