Urine Soiling & Carpet Cleaning
URINE SOILING CLEANING
Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. It can also create an unhealthy indoor environment. When urine is first deposited onto a floor or fabric, it is in an almost neutral state; which means it’s easier to remove when fresh. Once it dries, it turns alkaline and becomes more difficult to remove. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it will permanently change the dye structure, therefore causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done.
THIS MEANS THAT NO ONE CAN GUARANTEE COMPLETE REMOVAL OF ALL URINE SPOTS. PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR TECHNICIAN IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONABLE URINE SPOTS ON YOUR CARPET.
To prevent permanent staining in the future, clean urine spots immediately by blotting with a white terry towel cloth or plain white paper towels until no moisture is transferred. To clean the spot, mix 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water and massage (don’t scrub) into the spot with a white terry cloth. Once you have flushed as much of the urine out as possible, blot with dry cloths until dry to the touch. If you have a small extraction machine, flush with fresh water until spot is removed.
DO NOT USE OVER THE COUNTER, GENERAL SPOTTERS OR EXTRACTION DETERGENT. USE ONLY THOSE PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED BY A CLEANING PROFESSIONAL.
Note: Cleaning existing urine spots will not remove any associated odor. In fact, cleaning could increase the odor in the air space for a temporary period of time. Professional Pet Odor Removal Services are available.
