Pets Got Your Rug?

November 7, 2017

 Pets are great, but let's face it--sooner or later every pet has his "accident,"and now your rug has a problem. Within hours, germs and bacteria begin to grow. The problem compounds as urine forms a gummy residue which attracts soil, while spreading unsanitary contamination. 

 

If you can live with that,consider that a by-product of bacterial growth is ammonia (remember the baby-diaper pail?). Ammonia eventually results in permanent color loss. And if that weren't enough,urine also creates substantial odor that begins in the carpet but, with time , spreads to pad, subfloor, baseboard, walls and air currents with in you home. Contamination of upholstery and drapery fabrics soon follows. You may become accustomed to the odor; but when guests begin making excuses to leave hastily (especially when odor is magnified during humid weather), you know you have a problem!

 

The Best Solution:

The best solution is to contain the problem with immediate action. When fresh urine is discovered, your best reaction is to :

 

1. Blot excess with paper towels.

2. Saturate the spot with a mild detergent that's safe for fine rinse.

3. Blot up excess detergent. 

4. Sponge on warm water to rinse.

5. Blot excess.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 several times.

7. Place a one-inch layer of towels on the spot and weight them down overnight with a heavy dish. The towels will absorb remaining detergent and contaminant, as they "wick" out of the carpet during drying.

 

With older urine and odor problems, a professional cleaner who uses enzymes or disinfectants should be called for treatment. Otherwise, odor may be a recurring problem for years.
