Pet Urine from Your Best Friend is Your Carpet’s Worst Enemy

Although owners often love their pets like family, it is really embarrassing when one of them has an “accident” on the carpet that leaves your home smelling like pet urine.

Luckily, pet owners throughout the Rochester, NY area who need a thorough carpet cleaning can trust Jet Dry Carpet Cleaning to get the job done right.

Carpet Cleaning for Pet Urine

Even for trained professionals, pet urine is one of the most difficult and complex stains to remove from a carpet or rug. Furthermore, when pets urinate on carpet, rugs, or upholstery it can do more than just leave an unpleasant odor. Urine can also cause color damage to carpets. This permanent damage can happen either by removing color from the carpet by releasing dyes or by adding color when the fibers are dyed by the urine.

Carpet Cleaning in Rochester, NY for Pet Urine

When a pet urinates on carpet, the urine does not remain on the surface, but instead it penetrates the carpet fibers. It also contaminates the backing of the carpet and also the floor beneath the carpet. Pets also tend to urinate in the same general area without an owner’s knowledge. This ends up creating significant damage and contamination of the area.

Urine odors are very powerful, and can permeate from the floor, regardless of whether it is wood or cement, as well as from the tack strips and even from the framework of a home.

As the liquid in the urine evaporates, the urine crystals will become even more concentrated, giving them an even more pungent odor. It takes more than a simple cleaning to tackle this problem, in part because the urine crystals become reactivated when exposed to moisture.

The only truly effective way to treat pet urine contamination is by having a professional cleaner use a chemical that will break down the ammonia compound in the urine stain, flush it clean with extremely hot water, and finally use a powerful machine to extract the chemicals, urine, and water from the carpet.
