Urine Odor Removal
Urine deposited on area rugs does not stay on the surface. It penetrates into the fibers and contaminates both the backing of 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.
The rug cleaning process used for the removal of pet odors caused by urine involves soaking the rug in order to breakdown the urine salts that create the odor. Then the rug is immersed to remove all the contaminants.
