Cleaning pet pee from an HVAC return vent

The love I have for our pet Scruffy is immeasurable.

He’s a black labrador that I rescued from an creature shelter various years ago.

She had lost her family to an unthinkable accident in addition to needed a loft in addition to love to fill her little heart. Ever since, Scruffy in addition to I have been inseparable in addition to she has followed me through various separate relationships in addition to more than two tasks so far. But as much as I rightfully love Scruffy, he’s not perfect by any means. She barks more than she should, tries to get in the garbage despite our best efforts, in addition to occasionally I find urine in unusual locales. Once she peed at the base of our refrigerator which forced me to pull the huge thing away from the wall in addition to spend an hour or so struggling to clean the bottom off. But the absolute worst locale I have found Scruffy’s urine is inside the air return to our HVAC system. My return connects to the base of our air handler which is located in an interior closet in our house. Therefore, the vent for the return is installed at floor level on the adjacent wall. Anything on the floor or on our feet can get inside our filter in addition to then into our air system. The pet urine was on a completely unusual level I was simply not prepared for. Even after more than three hours of scrubbing in addition to rescrubbing with unusual detergent in addition to baking coffee mixes, I called a professional HVAC cleaner to finish the task. I’m considering buying a current HVAC plan so that I can have air returns on the ceiling instead, preventing anything love this from happening again. It’s not cheap having a professional HVAC cleaning crew labor on your system, so hopefully investing in a current setup would mitigate any additional costs in the future.
