Pet Urine

Pet urine penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the rug and the flooring material below. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage. As urine dries, the liquid evaporates but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and pungent. Simple cleaning will not remove this odor. In fact, these urine crystals are frequently re-activated by moisture. Urine can also cause permanent color damage, either from adding color by dying the rug fibers or removing color by releasing carpet dyes.

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.

The uric acid component of pet urine accounts for the lasting odor. 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 a wool rug. This is due to simple biology.

Stay with me here throughout this explanation and it will all make sense. Cats as a species originated from the desert. Meaning they had to be able to retain any water they drank for as long as possible in order to survive. This resulted in felines developing a very long “loop of Henle” which is the part of the kidney that is in charge of filtration and concentration of urine. In order to adapt 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. Thus resulting in urine that is extremely concentrated with little to no water at all in it, and is almost oil-based in nature and composition. This is why if you own a wool rug that has had cat urine on it at some point, any other cat is going to be able to tell that the rug has been peed on before and will do it again, unless the rug has been professionally cleaned and the odor had been neutralized

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.
