is simply no more effective way to eradicate pet stains and odors from
your carpet, pad AND subfloor than to do what's called subsurface
I've been performing --- and
evangelizing about --- subsurface extraction for nearly two decades.
How it works is: You soak a spot
with Doodoo Voodoo. You "smoosh" it down with your shoe
(perhaps with disposable shoe covers on) to
force it deep into the carpet backing and pad. You let it dwell
for 5-30 minutes (so it can begin to eliminate the stains and odors, and
so it can liquify the offensive organic material so you can extract it).
Next, you pour warm water on the area and smoosh it in. Then, you
fire up your carpet extractor or sufficiently powerful wetvac and, using
your subsurface tool, suck all the yucky organic material out. You
can see through the clear plastic top of the tool exactly what you're
removing. You'll be mortified at what comes out of your carpet.
It's just that fast and that easy.
Once you do it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. I'm
not kidding. You'll be thinking, "Why, oh why, did I live with
stains, odors and filth all this time when this is so easy and

Here are links to two short videos on YouTube to show you how the SOS
Hand Tool & Pro Tool work.
Notes About The Pro Video: The
Pro video is targeted at professional carpet cleaners, which is why it
mentions "truckmounts," which are the in-van machines pro's tend to use
(they're powered by the van's engine, which is why carpet cleaners leave
their vans running), but the Pro can absolutely be used with appropriate
portable carpet extractors and wetvacs that exhibit sufficient suction
(called "waterlift" in the carpet cleaning industry).
Guess What's In Your House Right Now
Below are two examples of some dirty water I got when I did a subsurface
extraction job on carpet that seemed clean (and had been professionally
cleaned not long prior). You won't believe what's lurking in your
carpet, pad and subfloor, and what you and your pets are breathing.
Let Me Illustrate How Cheap & Easy
It Is To Solve Your Stain & Odor Problems
Here's a recent case study to help illustrate the effectiveness of
A professor at a prestigious east coast
university complained of extreme cat urine smell and tons of vomit
stains in his carpeted basement, plus cat urine in their upholstered
sectional sofa. They had tried all manner of home remedies,
store-bought products and cover-ups, but nothing worked and they were
glad to have been referred to Doodoo Voodoo.
I advised him regarding the proper
methodology and sold him a gallon of Doodoo Voodoo Concentrate. He
bought a nozzle tool from us (sorry, they're not on the website just
yet, but will be soon) and I directed him regarding which carpet
cleaning extractor to rent locally (it happened to be one of the same
machines we use and now sell, but which are also not on the site just
yet). I think it was about $35 for a day to rent the machine.
One recent Saturday, he and his wife
jumped into the project and did subsurface extraction of their basement,
which was multiple rooms, and their sectional.
They kept texting me photos and their
thoughts as they went along. One that really made me laugh was
when they told me they didn't realize what filthy people they were until
they started doing subsurface extraction. :-)
To say they were thrilled with the
results --- and absolutely amazed by how fast, easy and inexpensive it
was --- would be an understatement. They said that they never
thought some of the stains would come out...but they all did. They
said they could never have imagined that their "trashed" carpet, pad and
subfloor could be salvaged...but they were. They, being
environmentally conscious, were thrilled that all their carpet and pad
stayed out of the landfill and that they didn't have to spend big money
on new flooring. They were thrilled that they didn't have to clean
and seal their subfloor, nor replace the drywall that had been peed on
or replace their baseboard and shoe molding.
And the most amazing thing was that
they said they mixed most of their DooDoo Voodoo at just the 1/2 ounce
per quart strength, which is the weakest ratio we recommend (for regular
Concentrate, not our new SUPER Concentrate, which dilutes at 1/4 ounce
per quart up to 1 ounce per quart). And
they said they didn't even use the whole gallon of Doodoo Voodoo
Concentrate, so now they have a lot left in case the cats make more
They texted me the next day to tell me:

That, my friends, is what you can experience, too. You can be rid
of your stains and odors better, faster and cheaper than you EVER
thought possible. You can avoid having to do a ton of extra work
on the subfloor and you can avoid buying new flooring and hurting the

at eradicating your stains and odors PERMANENTLY than many professional

How To Use The Two Types Of Tools To
Perform Subsurface Extraction
The Hand Tool you use by hand on smaller stains and odors and do so as
shown in the photos. The Pro Tool you stand on as you move around
the room and it is intended for use on larger areas of square footage.
But, even if you intend to work on smaller areas of stain and odor, you
can still use the Pro tool! It may be easier for some of you to
use 'cause you never have to get on your hands and knees.
Regardless which tool you choose,
you'll get the hang of it in just minutes and you'll have a smile on
your face and a great sense of satisfaction.
Got Any Stains That Keep Coming Back
No Matter How Many Times You Clean Them?
Welcome to the dreaded "wicking" and "soil migration." These are
professional terms that define the reasons that stains keep reappearing
after you thought you were done with them for good. You see, even
when the top of the carpet LOOKS clean, there's likely plenty of organic
matter down deep. This soil will automatically migrate up.
Why? Because the carpet fibers will dry on top faster than the
deeper fibers will dry. Physics says that the moisture down deep
will automatically migrate toward the dryer fibers on top, thus carrying
the deep-down soil with it. The result? A stain that keeps
coming back. No more...if you perform subsurface extraction.
The deep-down soil will be GONE.
In professional circles, it's said that if you use a Pro-type tool, you
can subsurface extract up to 1200 square feet in an hour. I've
done a ton of subsurface work and am pretty darned good at it, but I
think 1200 square feet in an hour might be overstating it a bit, as you
need to allow dwell time and flush time (with warm water, often more
than once). But, the process IS super-easy and goes a LOT faster
than you ever would imagine.
You'll Do A Better Job Than A Lot Of
As amazing as it may seem, there are still professional carpet cleaners
who don't own these types of tools. All they have in their arsenal
is the stereotypical wand...and a sore back and shoulders. No
matter how good a technician is, he'll never do the in-depth extraction
with a wand that you'll be able to do for as little as $39.99.

And Pro Tool
Here are some more photos and screencaps of the two tools so you can
better familiarize yourself with them.
The Hand Tool is compatible with all
three sizes of common hoses/cuffs (below), but the Pro Tool only works
with 1.5" and 2" hoses/cuffs:

Another Case Study We
have an elderly special-needs rescue dog named Rocky (right) who
sometimes goes #1 and #2 on the carpet due to separation anxiety and
"sundowner's syndrome" from the chemistry of his aging brain. But
with the proper tools (Doodoo Voodoo, an EDIC portable extractor and the
SOS subsurface Hand Tool), his messes are just an inconvenience for us.
With the proper tools, YOU can deal with your messes as quickly and
easily as I did here. This project took me very little time and
very little Doodoo Voodoo to FULLY eradicate what otherwise was AWFUL,
GROSS staining of the carpet in one of our bedrooms. As I say in
our brochure and on this site: Doodoo Voodoo gives you peace of
mind and makes pet messes no big deal.
Here are some photos from a recent
cleanup. Note that I spared you the trauma of seeing the
extraordinarily gross "before" photos! Click on these to see
Here's after I cleaned up the (soft, not formed) dog feces that had
REALLY stained the carpet. I've poured Doodoo Voodoo on the spots
and am letting it dwell.
Here I'm using the corner of the Doodoo Voodoo Claw Tool (which we
intend to have for sale on the website soon) to work the Doodoo Voodoo
into the spots. As you can see, the initial cleanup and pouring of
Doodoo Voodoo has virtually eliminated the staining (which was severe
and really gross), but I wanted to make sure that the areas were as
stain, odor and germ-free as possible --- and as deep down as possible
--- so I figured I'd do a proper cleanup, which to me always includes
surface work and a subsurface extraction.
Working the Claw Tool back and forth to really work Doodoo Voodoo into
the carpet fibers.
This is after using the technique shown in Photo #3.
This is after using the Claw Tool to extract as much from the fibers as
possible. It did a great job and I could have stopped here if I'd
been in a hurry. The deep-down Doodoo Voodoo would have kept
working, then dried naturally. But it was bedtime and someone in
the family was chomping at the bit to get to bed. I didn't want
the room to smell like Doodoo Voodoo while someone was trying to sleep,
so subsurface extraction was in order. Note the position in which
I set the Claw Tool down? I show this to you to illustrate that if
you're going to set your Claw or other tool down, set it in such a way
that any liquid inside doesn't drain out onto the floor.
Here I'm using the SOS Hand Tool immediately after using the Claw Tool
to extract the fibers. But see how there's not much coming up from
the backing and pad? This is because the tool needs the carpet
fibers to be wet in order to work correctly. Why? Because
it's easier for the tool to create a vacuum effect when placed on wet
carpet vs. dry.
This is after I dumped warm water on the spots so as to flush out the
Doodoo Voodoo (that's now seeped down deep into the carpet backing and
pad) and offensive organic material. You should flush 'til the
extraction solution is clear and not soapy.
This is after a couple flushes with warm water and the SOS Hand Tool.
Note that even though the subsurface tool pulls out nearly all the
water, there's still enough left in the carpet to allow you to see the
areas that have been treated. But within about an hour, the
wetness had completely disappeared and you couldn't even see where I'd
flooded the carpet with Doodoo Voodoo and warm water. And, most
importantly, the room didn't smell of dog poop or Doodoo Voodoo.
That's what we want when it's bedtime. ;-)
