Pet Urine & Odor Removal

Rug Resolutions Rug Cleaning is the go to company for 100% guaranteed pet urine and odor removal.

We love our pets and could not imagine life without them. But sometimes our pets have accidents that cause issues with our fine area rugs.

Over 80% of the rugs that come through our workshop have pet urine issues.

Pet urine can be very destructive to area rugs. Some rugs are very sensitive to ph changes caused by the pet urine and can be permanently stained. Structural damage is also a risk. If pet urine is left in a rug for an extended period of time, the foundation of the rug is very likely to experience dry rot. When this happens, portions of the rug can become detached and fall away from the rest of the rug.

The most common issue with pet urine is the odor caused by ammonia off gassing. This occurs over time and is especially noticeable during very humid seasons.

The only way to remove the odor from a rug is to remove the source of the odor. Unfortunately, the processes used by many cleaners doesn't remove the source. With pet urine contamination, the rug must be washed in a proper rug cleaning facility. Pet urine can not be removed with an onsite carpet cleaning process or a top only cleaning encapsulation process. The contamination is in the foundation yarns at the bottom of the rug. Many cleaners use the above processes then load the rug with deodorizers to mask the odor. It works for about a week, then the odor is back. This is where the dry rot come from because the original contamination was not removed. This leads to a very expensive repair later on.

Padding under the rug and the flooring can contribute contribute to a very serious odor issue. For this reason, it is recommended that the pad be replaced when a rug with urine issues is cleaned. The flooring underneath must also be thoroughly cleaned.
