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
