General Challenges with Pet Stain on Area Rugs

Pet urine penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the rug and the flooring material below. Pets tend to urinate in the same general location. Once they have marked their spot, it can be challenging to break this habit.

Repeated urination can cause significant damage and contamination to your rug. Even after the liquid has evaporated from your rug, the problem only gets worse. Urine crystals left behind from the pet stain are even more concentrated and more difficult to remove.

Simple cleaning will not remove the odor. Things get worse when these crystals are reactivated and exposed to moisture. Urine can also cause issues with coloring by either dying your rug yellows or causing the dye to run.

Another concern of pet owners with area rugs in their homes is the awful odor of urine stains. Not only do pet accidents weaken, damage, bleach, bleed and stain area rugs, the odors are also tough to remove. Have you ever wondered why the bad smell of your pet stain is so difficult to remove?

Blame the uric acid! It forms salts and crystals that bind to area rug fibers and are hard to clean and get rid of. As these crystals are exposed to moisture from the air, they continually release their odors, as demonstrated on humid days.

Attempts by pet owners to remove stains and odors from area rugs are often unsuccessful. They often make the situation worse. However, expert area rug cleaners can help pet owners have their area rugs looking beautiful and healthy all year round.

Cat Urine

Cat urine is by far the most difficult to remove from wool rugs. That is due to simple biology. Cats, as a species, originated from the desert.

Cats had to be able to retain as much water as possible to survive in extreme desert conditions. That resulted in felines developing a very long “loop of Henle.” The “loop of Henle” is the part of a kidney in charge of filtration and urine concentration.

For adapting to harsh desert environments, a feline’s kidney had to be able to extract every last bit of water from its urine. This is to conserve as much water as possible.

As a result, a cat’s urine is extremely concentrated and contains very little to no water. Another cat may notice that the rug has been urinated on before and will do it again. This is due to you having a wool rug that has had cat urine on it at some point. This can be avoided if the urine is neutralized by having your rug professionally cleaned.

Dog Urine

Dog urine is roughly 95% water and 5% water-soluble organic materials and ions. It turns the grass yellow because of the elevated levels of nitrogen in the urine, which causes the grass to burn.

Dog urine is much more concentrated than human urine. To effectively remove dog urine, you should first determine the pH level of the urine stain. Then, formulate a cleansing solution that will effectively break down and clean the stain.

Dog urine contains urea, creatinine, sodium, potassium, chloride, inorganic and organic compounds, including uric acid. Dog urine smells because it can acquire strong odors due to bacterial action and the release of ammonia.
