“Pet Sitting Nightmare”
Odor Removal: Over the holidays, many people seek the help of a house sitter or a pet sitter while they are out of town. As many of us know, it’s often a struggle to find a trustworthy person to care for your home and beloved pets. Chandra and Mitch ran into unfortunate luck with a very unreliable pet sitter last Winter as they spent 3 weeks with their grandchildren across the country.
Chandra considered herself very fortunate to have wonderful new neighbors with a high school daughter willing to cat-sit, collect their mail, water their plants, and ensure that all was good with their home while she and her husband traveled to Vermont from their Alpharetta, Georgia home to visit their grandchildren for the holidays. She and Mitch would arrive just before school let out for the holidays to surprise three of the grandchildren still in grade-school, and they would rotate to their two other children’s homes throughout their extended stay and get lots of quality time with all three of their children’s families.
Mitch and Chandra had four cats, one of whom, Pricilla, was very old and spent most of her time hiding under the couch and often using the Persian rug that was adjacent to the couch as her litter box. Mitch left out rug cleaner and rags for the cat-sitter, to use if needed, hoping she’d manage any accidents so they could arrive home to their house mostly intact. When the grandparents arrived back to their quiet, calm, home after a lengthy visit with their grandchildren, it was hardly what they had hoped for.
I smelled what I thought was road kill or maybe an opossum that had died under a bush as soon as we opened the car door in our driveway. It was an intense smell of rotting meat that no one would ever dream would come from inside their house.
Extreme Cat Urine Odor Removal
Shock wasn’t even the word to describe what Mitch felt when he first walked into his living room. He remembers his eyes watering from the burn of ammonia and noxious gases. There were cat feces and flies everywhere and large discolored areas on their hardwood floors throughout their home where the cats had urinated over the past few weeks. They quickly located three of their four cats and put them in the backyard with water and food after discovering the five empty cat food bags shredded all over the kitchen floor.
Not only had Hannah never visited their house once over the twenty-three days they’d been gone, but the cat Pricilla appeared to have died very early in their trip; based on her condition it was likely within the first couple of days after Mitch and Chandra departed. What they discovered was so unsettling that they immediately reached out to Advanced Bio Treatment for help.
Other than her orange fluffy fur, Pricilla hardly resembled a cat. I had to move the couch to get to her and when I tried to mover her, she came apart in the middle spilling maggots and this slimy liquid everywhere.
The bad odor left behind from cat urine can tend to be powerfully overwhelming. Cat urine odor can penetrate deeply into the carpet as well as the the contents of a dwelling. The urinary crystals in cats make it difficult impossible to remove by solely cleaning the carpet. It is important to call Advanced Bio Treatment and have a professionally certified technician perform the bad odor removal services.
