Pet Urine Treatment

Pet urine poses a significant threat to rugs due to its acidic nature, which can cause permanent damage if left untreated. Urine contains uric acid and ammonia, which can chemically react with rug fibers, leading to discoloration, odor retention, and structural deterioration over time. Professional rug cleaners follow industry best practices to effectively neutralize and extract pet urine from rugs. 

Pet urine might be the culprit when you smell an unpleasant odor coming from your rugs. During rainy or humid days you may smell this odor even more because the dried urine in the fibers of the rug will begin to rehydrate. It’s best to clean up urine spots as soon as they happen by applying pressure with a dry towel and then call a professional for cleaning. Trying to clean urine spots yourself is not recommended, as almost all household products can’t actually remove urine and may be harmful to your rug.

Pet Urine Can Cause:

Our technicians at Flagstaff Rug Specialists use a safe industry grade product that binds to the crystalized urine in the fibers making the crystals water soluble, so it can be flushed out of the rug during cleaning. During our initial inspection of your rug, we will view the rug under a black light to determine if urine is present. As a precaution, we inspect every rug with a black light before cleaning.
