Pet Urine

Pet urine penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the rug and the flooring material below. Pets have a tendency to urinate in the same general location. Once they have marked their spot, it can be challenging to break this habit. Repeated urination can cause significant damage and contamination to your rug. Even after the liquid has evaporated from your rug, the problem only gets worse. Urine crystals, left behind from your pet’s urine, are even more concentrated and more difficult to remove. Simple cleaning will not remove the odor and, to make matters worse, these crystals can be reactivated when exposed to moisture. Urine can also cause issues with coloring by either dying your rug yellows or causing the dye to run. Professional cleaning is the best way to solve these problems. At Khazai Rug Cleaning we have over 30 years experience handling pet urine. Not only can we remove the stain from your rug, we will remove the bad odor too!

Odor Removal

Another concern of pet owners with area rugs in their homes is the strong odor of urine stains. Not only do pet accidents weaken, damage, bleach, bleed and stain area rugs, the odors are also very hard to remove. Have you ever wondered why the odor of your pet’s urine is so difficult to remove from your rug?

 

Blame the uric acid! Uric acid forms salts and crystals that bind to area rug fibers and are hard to clean and get rid of. As these crystals are exposed to water or moisture from the air, they continually release their odors, as demonstrated on humid days. Attempts by pet owners to remove stains and odors from area rugs are often unsuccessful. In fact, they often make the situation worse. However, expert area rug cleaners can help pet owners have their area rugs looking beautiful and healthy all year round

Cat Urine

Cat urine is by far the most difficult to remove from wool rugs. This is due to simple biology. 

Did you know: Cats, as a species, originated from the desert. In order to survive, they had to be able to retain as much water as possible. This resulted in felines developing a very long “loop of Henle.” The “loop of Henle” is the part of a kidney that is in charge of filtration and concentration of urine. o In order to adapt to harsh desert environments, a feline’s kidney had to be able to extract every last bit of water from their urine in order to conserve as much water as possible. 

As a result, a cat’s urine is extremely concentrated and contains very little to no water. Because of this, if you own a wool rug that has had cat urine on it at some point, another cat may notice that the rug has been peed on before and will do it again. This can be avoided if the urine is neutralized by having your rug professionally cleaned.

Dog Urine

Dog urine is roughly 95% water and 5% water-soluble organic materials and ions. Dog urine turns the grass yellow because of the elevated levels of nitrogen in the urine, which causes the grass to burn. 

Dog urine is much more concentrated than human urine. In order to effectively remove dog urine, we must first determine the PH level of the urine stain in order to formulate a cleansing solution that will effectively break down and clean the stain. Dog urine contains urea, creatinine, sodium, potassium, chloride, inorganic and organic compounds including uric acid. Dog urine smells because it can acquire strong odors due to bacterial action and the release of ammonia.
