Managing multiple properties can be overwhelming at times. Especially when the former tenants left your home a complete mess. Lots to do and little time to do it. And the carpets are a disaster.

The summer is approaching and three tenants have notified you that they are moving out with more sure to follow. Many of them own pets and you are concerned about the potential of stained carpets. You have been here before and know that many times the tenants do not clean pet stains with any real commitment.
"How am I going to remove pet stains from carpet without worrying about them resurfacing at a later date and do so in a timely fashion when I have multiple homes to rent?"
You cleaned the carpet hoping the pet stains of the former tenants would come out. You run back by the house to check to see if your showings the next two days will find clean and fresh carpets.
Your jaw drops when you see the pet stains have resurfaced. Don't reschedule those showings yet.
Pet stains are tricky. The biggest reason this is true is you are not aware of how quickly the former tenants tried to remove pet stains from carpets or if they even tried at all.
You can hope for the best, but if those pet stains were not addressed quickly, you will lose both time and potential tenants.

You have two showings already booked for the end of the week. The former tenants have moved out but left you a surprise — pet stained carpet.
So how are you going to remove pet stains from carpet within a couple of days?
PET STAINS CAN BE THE TOUGHEST STAINS
Pet stains can be one of the most difficult stains to remove. Pet urine contains crystals and by-products that make it more difficult to clean.
There are over the counter cleaning products that can be purchased but sometimes a home remedy will provide results.
It's your best property. The former tenants have just moved out and you already have three showings scheduled. You walk into the home and your jaw drops. A huge carpet stain in the den is not what you anticipated.
Your experience tells you that this stain will not come out. You wonder how you are going to replace the carpet by Tuesday and justify the cost of replacing carpet that is only two years old? There may well be a better solution and one that will save you a ton of money.
In and out. A San Antonio carpet cleaning company cleaned the carpets just a few days ago and your showing is interrupted by dirt and stains that have resurfaced. In fact, you may lose the interested tenants all together.
But with the right professional commercial cleaning company, that has the right equipment, property managers can show their homes without the worry of dirt or stains that resurface.
The Right Equipment and the Right People
Most San Antonio carpet cleaning companies have the equipment needed to just surface clean your carpets.
Sometimes, surface cleaning works, and everybody is happy. But there are those times additional carpet cleaning services are needed — like deep cleaning your carpets.
Especially if the carpets have not been cleaned since the tenants moved in several months ago. Simply calling the same company back out to surface clean your carpets will end up providing the same results. They simply so not have the proper equipment.
No matter if you are selling or renting a home, you want to present your properties as best as possible.
Oftentimes, realtors and property mangers pay for commercial carpet cleaning and within a couple of days dirt and stains have surfaced once again.
This is a problem if the home has not sold the first day or two on the market (and most do not). You can have the San Antonio carpet cleaning company come back, but chances are you will end up with the same result.
Why? Because the dirt and stains are below the surface of the carpet and quick cleaning just cleans the surface of the carpets. I am sure you are familiar with the problem, so, what is the solution so your home looks its best no matter how long it takes to rent or sell the home?
You have vacuumed time and time again, bought the over the counter rug cleaners and blotted and rubbed, even tried some home remedies. Nothing works. The dirt and stains are still there.
Before you hire a San Antonio carpet cleaning company, there is something you should know.
Most carpet cleaning companies clean just the surface of your carpet and that is OK for surface dirt, but sometimes the carpet cleaning basics will not work.
Over time, dirt makes it way into the fabric of your carpet, between the threads and stays there unless the right method and equipment is used.
Though quick cleaning could get a good portion of the dirt and stains out, it's even more effective to take your carpet through regular deep cleaning cycles using a commercial grade power scrubber.
