If you are able to lift the carpet, spray sides as well as the padding and floor. In fact, spray everything that appears to be contaminated. This may include walls, curtains, hearth, etc. If you’re not able to lift the carpet, a large syringe may be used.
Injecting is the recommended method for treating carpeting. Why inject?
For those who are not injecting, make sure to get the liquid into the padding because that is where 90% of the urine is. To do this, spray the surface, walk on the area thoroughly, wait 2 days and spray the surface again thoroughly.
Have ready a spray bottle of our enzymatic digester, a larger container of the same, and a shallow bowl in which to pour. Drawing the liquid from the bowl is the easiest method of filling the injector.
Pierce the carpet backing with the needle and lift the tufts slightly with your other hand. Slide the needle in horizontally between the secondary backing and the top of the pad. Push one ounce, or 30 cc’s, into the void. Repeat the procedure each four to six Inches, grid fashion, throughout the contaminated areas until satisfied that you have adequately covered it all. You can expect that one ounce will cover four to six Inches in diameter depending on density of the fabric and thickness of the pad. Generally, you will have to refill your injector many times.
Using your spray bottle, cover the face yarns well and walk around on the entire treatment with your full weight In order to spread and squeeze in the good stuff. When white foam from the digester appears up through the carpet backing beneath, you know it has soaked all of the way through.
