Pet Odor Removal
Animal Urine on Oriental and Fine Rugs
Aside from creating an unhealthy indoor environment, urine contamination in area rugs fibers can cause permanent damage to your rugs fibers. When urine if first deposited it has a pH of about 5 or 6. It is easier to remove right then and there when it is fresh. The initial acid state of urine is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which begin to accumulate almost immediately. Once dry, urine becomes alkaline and can cause permanent staining to your rug along with dye migration (bleeding)
Why does it smell so bad?
Urine odor comes both from the waste and from the bacteria that uses it as a food source. The waste materials and gases from the decomposing urine create that common ammonia-like unpleasant odor. Dried urine is often worse in the humid months or on a rainy day because the urine salts attract moisture.
Guaranteed Odor Removal
Urine salts need to be completely neutralized and rinsed from the face fiber’s and the foundation yarns of your rug. This rinsing process is extensive and time consuming and needs to be repeated many times till the odor is gone.
We do a contamination inspection using Ultraviolet lights and Moisture meters to locate Urine deposits in your rug. This inspection is the sure-fire way to locate insidious urine spots and allows us to treat each spot individually so we can eliminate the odor and its contamination.
