Cleaning Pet Urine
Pet urine as a stain is one of the most tricky stains to remove from a carpet or rug. Pet urine changes from being acidic to alkaline as it dries, and this transformation can complicate the cleaning.
Another major issue is that the urine can soak down and into the backing of the carpet. There are even times when so much urine can go through the carpet and soak into the underpad. Due to this, removing urine can be a very difficult process as a lot of what needs to be removed or treated is in the base of the carpet or on the underpad below.
Sometimes the only way to find pet damage is to inspect them with ultraviolet light because this technology shows up exactly where the stains are. And even then, a professional cleaning approach of urine stains could not be sufficient to remediate the problem. In those cases, we recommend replacing the carpet and the underpad.
A common complaint that can occur after cleaning pet stains is that there may be a strong urine odor. During the drying process, the carpets dry from the bottom to the top, and the odor can rise and be very noticeable.
