In Portland and Hood River alike, there’s a deep affection for pets that hums within the community’s spirit. It’s in every pet bakery, dog park, and cat cafe – and especially in the homes of people who call themselves “pet parents.” This pet affection, however, is often paired with the added challenge of maintaining a clean and comfortable home. 

At Gallagher’s Rug and Carpet Care, we help people prioritize cleanliness, particularly when addressing the unique challenges posed by rugs bearing the marks of pet odors and stains. Remarkably, over half of the service calls received by Gallagher’s are associated with the complicated task of maintaining rugs, carpets, and upholstery in households with beloved pets.

The Pet Predicament:

While spot treatments and hand washing prove effective for most rug issues, Gallagher’s Rug and Carpet Care employs a distinctive approach for the enduring challenge presented by pet urine – powerful enzymes. Recognizing the distinct challenges associated with pet accidents, our skilled team strategically designed our rug cleaning facility to provide rugs suffering from urine-related issues with the tailored treatment they require.


The Enzyme Soak Solution:

Beyond the conventional dusting area, wash floor, and drying floor, Gallagher’s Rug and Carpet Care’s facility showcases an extensive wash floor meticulously designed to address the complexities of pet urine. Following the initial dusting and washing stages, rugs undergo a gentle soak in a bath of enzymes and water. The enzymes, applied with precision by skilled technicians, effectively unlock the grip of urine, liberating it from the rug fibers.


A Methodical Process:

Post-enzyme treatment, the contaminated water is drained and rinsed. The rug then undergoes many more thorough rinses to ensure the complete removal of any lingering traces of enzymes and urine. Subsequently, the meticulously cleaned rug is transferred to the drying room for a precise drying process. This comprehensive methodology serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to delivering the most effective and specialized rug cleaning solutions.


The Gallagher’s Difference:

We’ve meticulously customized our process to address the specific challenges presented by pet-related issues. In contrast to the one-size-fits-all approach often employed by other rug cleaning services, Gallagher’s recognizes that successfully tackling pet odors and stains demands a nuanced and specialized touch.
