Pet urine is made up of water, enzymes, uric acid, alkaline and other chemicals – with a yellowing factor. When a cat or dog pees, the liquid that comes out is an acid, but after it dries this acid turns into an alkaline due to ph. The salt produced from the alkaline mixes with the yellowing and causes the yellow that you see on the carpets after the urine dries.
The most important thing you can do with pet urine spots is get the urine removed as soon as it occurs.
Sometimes it not possible because often we don't see it until later, but the longer urine is left on your carpets, the harder it becomes to remove. The ammonia that comes from pet urine can cause dye changes, especially if there are blue or cool tones in your carpets. It is important to note this because it sometimes can appear like a carpet cleaning chemicals cannot remove the stain -even though the carpet is clean – because the stain is actually a color change that has taken place within the carpet or rug fibers.
Another factor with pet urine stains is the odor left behind. This awful smell is caused by the ammonia gasses and if they are not cleaned the right way, the smell will get worse when humidity levels rise. This is why carpets with pets can smell worse on a humid Castle Rock day. Urine also soaks down into the carpet padding and subfloor as well and that needs to be cleaned.
Bacteria must be removed to clean a carpet or area rug for the odor to go away.
Many of the carpet cleaning chemicals available in stores are not designed for urine stains. TLC Carpet Care in Castle Rock Co has a Pet Solutions Package that deals with both the urine and the bacteria. Sometimes doing the wrong thing can actually do more harm than good. Leave it to the carpet cleaning professionals. Call TLC Carpet Care in Castle Rock TODAY.
