Dog Urine on your Carpets
Updated: Jul 23
Dog pee on carpets and upholstery need to be treated Immediately!!
From time to time, accidents from our pets will happen. Unfortunately, if the accident happens on the carpet, it will need to be dealt with immediately to prevent the carpet from becoming permanently damaged and eliminate any pungent odours.
Pet urine can cause permanent damage to both carpets and hard surface flooring and may create an unhealthy environment. When your pet urinates on your carpet, the urine is first on the acid side of the pH scale, and this is the best time to remove it. However, once it dries, it turns “alkaline” and becomes more difficult to remove.
When your dog leaves that unwanted calling card on your carpet, the urine not only soaks into the carpet, it will also soak down into the backing and underlay of the carpet. The size of the stain you can see is usually a lot smaller than the size of the affected area in the carpet’s backing, underlay and the floor surface. The warm acid state of the urine offers a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which begins to flourish almost immediately. As the urine dries, it begins to oxidise and reacts with the carpet to create a colour change, which will become permanent if the urine is not removed immediately.
Treating Urine Stains
Most modern carpets come with applied protection, but this wears off over time. Protection prevents the carpet fibres from staining quickly and buys you time to remove the stain without damaging the carpet.
At Results Services, we can respond to your emergency quickly and with no fuss. We have carpet technicians that have full training in “body fluid” stain removal. Not only can they remove the stain, but they will also ensure that the carpet is left healthy with no nasty bacteria or residue remaining.
