Facts You Need to Know About Pet Urine in Your Carpeting:
  • Timing is critical! The longer a spot is on your carpet, the higher the risk of color loss or permanent color damage either from adding color by dying the carpet fibers or removing color by releasing carpet dyes.

  • 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. Have you noticed that urine odors become more noticeable as humidity increases?

  • Urine deposited on carpet does not stay on the surface. It also penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the carpet and the flooring material below the carpet. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage.

  • A visible urine spot the size of a baseball on top side of your carpet may actually be the size of a large dinner plate under the surface.

  • Proteins in urine work like glue, bonding the yellow pigment to carpet fibers. Our process liquefies and breaks down these proteins. This is what releases the stain from the fibers.

  • Urine odors can permeate from the floor, be it cement or wood, from the tack strips, and even from the framework of the house behind the walls.
