Carpet Using DooDoo Voodoo To Get Rid Of Tough Stains & OdorsEven if you're
not in our area, we hope that by reading the information on this page,
you'll be smarter about how to attack odors and stains in your own
carpet, either by yourself or with the help of a professional. Get
them to use DooDoo Voodoo instead of their usual chemicals and you'll be
pleased with the results. Whether they use a truckmount, a
portable, a subsurface extraction tool, a RotoVac, a Steam Genie or just a
conventional wand, they can be successful for you by using DooDoo
The Whole Nine Yards For Pet Odor In Your
To fill a void in the Indianapolis-area carpet cleaning marketplace with
regard to pet odors, we’ve
forged relationships with top professionals and have assembled a highly
experienced team to help customers whose odor control needs go
beyond simply spraying or pouring DooDoo Voodoo. (Please note that we only provide our
services in central Indiana.) These are experienced professionals
who meet our standards for quality, experience and know-how. We
have a referral relationship with them, but they are not our
Carpet Cleaning Just Doesn’t Cut It
As you may have experienced for yourself, conventional "wand" carpet cleaning often isn’t enough to
remove pet odor-causing organic contaminants from deep within carpet, pad and
subfloor. Four On The Floor Carpet Care takes pet odor remediation to a whole
new level (literally) because our capabilities extend far beyond what a regular
wand-type carpet cleaning can accomplish. (Yes, we sometimes do utilize a
wand, but only when we know it's the correct tool for the job.) As
an example of what our tools, chemistry and methods can do, the top picture shows what
we removed from just 38 square feet of carpet that had already been
conventionally (wand) cleaned and appeared "clean" to untrained eyes.
invested in patented and specialized equipment that is dramatically more
effective than conventional wand cleaning could ever be at removing
pet odor-causing contaminants from carpet. Used correctly in conjunction with DooDoo Voodoo and certain
other chemicals not available to the general public, our tools and
methods, honed by more than three decades of combined experience obliterating pet odors,
yield dramatically more effective pet odor control than has been available in
the local marketplace. There is no other company in the Indianapolis area
using the unique combination of tools, methods and chemistry that we

models of Steam
Genie Drag Wand,

Voodoo alone is phenomenal at removing stains and odors. But,
if your odor problems are more in-depth than you think you can tackle
with just DooDoo Voodoo alone, you might desire to enlist our
help or at least ask our advice.
Our favorite pet odor and stain eradication tools are the
SOS subsurface tools
(the Hand Tool is shown to the right) we now are proud to distribute.
There is NO more effective means of eradicating pet odors and stains
than to perform subsurface extraction with DooDoo Voodoo, which is like
running your carpet and pad through the washing machine. It's WAY
easier and more affordable to do this yourself than you might think ---
the tools start at just $39.99! If you're doing cleaning yourself,
either with a machine you own or one that you rent, you've just gotta
learn more about subsurface extraction! I've been doing it and
evangelizing about it for nearly 20 years. "Trashed" carpet and
pad are no match for the SOS tools!
Far Our Capabilities Extend
While DooDoo Voodoo alone can solve many, if not most, pet odor problems,
even where repeated urination has occurred (see the blacklight picture),
there are times when total odor remediation requires more invasive
methods. Unfortunately for consumers, most Indianapolis-area carpet
cleaning companies shy away from these methods like the plague because of
the extra time, expertise, tooling and expense involved. With over 30
years of combined experience, our team knows when DooDoo Voodoo alone will be sufficient, and
when to dig deeper.
a pet odor-specific conventional cleaning is all that’s needed, we can
provide that in lieu of the more in-depth measures, but we’ll provide a
more thorough cleaning and better odor remediation than other companies
would. If, however, additional work is required to rid an area of odor, we
have the tools and experience to pull back carpet, remove and replace pad
& tack strips (we can even install special new types of non-impregnable
pad or plastic sheeting, if desired), seal subfloors, extensively clean & treat both sides of the carpet,
re-paint & re-caulk walls & trim as required, re-lay (re-stretch) carpet,
patch in and seam replacement carpet if available and more.

Info About Preparing For Our Service
Please vacuum the carpeting as thoroughly as possible before we
arrive. We move most furniture, but you can save money by
moving it yourself. If you
have breakable items such as dishes in a China cabinet, you might
want to remove them before we perform our work.
you're trying to salvage your carpet or a piece of furniture,
purchase some DooDoo
Voodoo and pre-soak the soiled areas up to two hours
prior to the arrival of the technicians. This allows DooDoo

job of extracting the areas.

carpet pad, you can save some time and money by picking up new pad
prior to the work date. You'll need to
know what thickness and density of pad you have.
want your subfloor sealed, we recommend BIN sealer by Zinsser, which
is available at most home improvement stores. You can pick it
up yourself and save time and money, too, and you can even paint it
on after we pull your carpet back (top pic). If you're going
to do this, don't forget a brush (2", angled works well), a roller
with cover (short nap of 3/8") and a roller pan. A 4'
extension handle for the roller might also help.
want to gently pull your carpet back and remove your tackless strips,
which many people call "tack strips" (pic
#2), we recommend that you also fill any resulting nail
holes with high-quality paintable caulk (pic #3). You can dab
it on with your finger or you can use a putty knife. We like
the disposable plastic type (<$1.00) in the 1"-2" widths. Get
the best paintable, silicone-based caulk you can afford; it will tend to crack less
over the long run.
people desire or need to repaint their baseboards after remediation
work to help freshen the look and seal in any residual odors that
might emanate from broken caulk joints. If you want to repaint
the baseboards, it's a good idea to re-caulk the junctures at this
time, too. Don't forget to get paint and extra caulk while
you're at the home improvement store.

the time and expense involved. We'll work with you—literally
and figuratively, if you desire—to make odor remediation as painless
as possible, in every regard.
