Oriental Rugs and Pet Urine Issues

Watch our video on what happens when a pet deposits urine on a wool or silk area rug.  Click here.

Pet stains are incredibly challenging. To most people, their pets are a part of the family, and occasionally, pets will have accidents. If pet urine, throw up, or feces is left untreated on your wool or silk area rugs, the damage will be above and beyond an unpleasant odor.

Urine and digestive juices penetrate the face yarns of your cherished area rug and spread to the backing and floor beneath. Because pet urine and feces contain scent markers, pets can sense where the previous incident is located and repeatedly urinate in the same spots. You may not be able to pinpoint the area until several incidents have occurred.

When urine dries, it creates concentrated crystals that can intensify the odor and cause off-gassing. It is almost impossible to remove these crystals without specialized pet urine cleaning intervention. Left untreated, urine and its crystals will cause permanent color damage to your wool or silk area rug, and over time, dry rot will occur.

In approximately 50% of the area rugs we clean, pet urine is the Number One reason the client trusted their rug with our team of highly skilled technicians.  Our rug cleaning and restoration professionals have the knowledge, certification, and cleaning agents and solutions needed to break down the urine crystals, after which the rug is thoroughly bathed and hand-washed on both sides to remove all contaminants.
