At Basic Carpet Care, we understand the importance of a thorough clean, which is why we utilize advanced technology, such as black lights, to detect and eliminate pet odors effectively.

Understanding Pet Odors:

Pet odors are often caused by urine, which contains uric acid that can crystallize and become difficult to remove. Even after cleaning, these odor-causing crystals can remain embedded in carpets and upholstery, emitting unpleasant smells over time.

The Power of Black Lights:

Black lights, also known as ultraviolet (UV) lights, are a valuable tool in identifying pet urine stains that may be invisible to the human eye. When a black light is shined on a surface, it causes certain substances, including urine, to fluoresce or glow, making them easy to spot.

How Basic Carpet Care Utilizes Black Lights:

At Basic Carpet Care, our technicians are trained to use black lights as part of our pet odor detection process. During a cleaning service, we carefully inspect carpets, rugs, and upholstery using black lights to identify areas where pet odors may be present.

Once pet urine stains are detected, we can then target these areas with specialized cleaning solutions designed to break down and neutralize odor-causing bacteria and enzymes. Our goal is not only to remove surface stains but also to eliminate odors at their source, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean.

The Benefits of Black Light Detection:

By utilizing black lights, Basic Carpet Care ensures that no pet odor goes undetected. This thorough approach allows us to provide our customers with a deeper, more effective clean, restoring their carpets and upholstery to their original condition.

Additionally, by identifying and treating pet odors promptly, we can help prevent future staining and damage to carpets and upholstery, ultimately extending their lifespan and saving our customers time and money in the long run.


At Basic Carpet Care, we go above and beyond to ensure that your home is free from pet odors and stains. Our use of black lights allows us to detect even the most hidden pet odors, providing our customers with a comprehensive cleaning solution that leaves their homes smelling fresh and inviting.
