Pet odors may become noticeable because of pet accidents on area rugs. Unfortunately, pet urine can significantly damage rugs as well as the flooring underneath, if not professionally cleaned immediately. Pet urine permeates through the rug to the rug’s foundation, rug pad, and then to the floor causing odors to linger. Pet urine weakens the backing of the rug as well as damages the floor. Repeated pet accidents can cause irreversible damage to your rug.
Not only does pet urine weaken, damage, bleach, bleed and stain area rugs, the odors of pet urine are also very hard to remove. The uric acid component of pet urine accounts for the lasting odor. Uric acid forms salts and crystals that bind to area rug fibers and are hard to clean and remove. As these crystals are exposed to water or moisture from the air, they continually release their odors.
In the event of a pet accident, remove any pet waste debris from your rug and then blot, not rub, the area gently with a clean white cotton towel. You may add a little water when blotting the soil, but beware of soaking the area with too much water as this can make the stain worse and cause water staining.
