What You Need to Know
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.
The ammonia is a result of the breakdown of urea and uric acid crystals. The main reason general and multi-purpose cleaners aren’t able to effectively break down and clean urine stains are because they are not designed to break down uric acid crystals formed by urine. So popular cleaning methods like vinegar, baking soda, ammonia, do not contain the necessary enzymes needed to break down the uric acid. So it is very important you take your rug to a professional cleaner as soon as you are aware that there has been an accident on your precious rug.
