TRUE RUG STORIES: Removing Pet Stains on Rugs

Two empty nesters, Mike and Rose, enjoyed a life together, but also separate interests. Mike had no idea Rose thought their life was lacking in any way until she came home with a Shih Tzu they named Tocho. Mike and Rose didn’t consider all the pet stains on their rugs, courtesy of Tocho.

Mike suggested calling a dog trainer but his next call should have been to revitaRUGS.

How to Remove Pet Stains From Your Rugs

We understand the bio-chemistry of the uric acid and our rug cleaning process does not add any chemicals to the mix. We have pioneered and engineered the technology to release and remove various bacteria and contaminates from rug fibers without compromising the end result, or damaging the fine fibers of rugs — even those made with 100% natural silk.

Urine deposited on area rugs does not stay on the surface. It penetrates the fibers and also contaminates the backing of the rug, the rug pad and the flooring below. Often, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant damage.

As urine dries, the liquid evaporates, but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and strong. These urine crystals are frequently re-activated by moisture. Urine will also cause permanent color and fiber damage.

Be advised: Over the counter rug cleaning remedies do not work, nor are they suitable for wool and silk rugs. In fact, using them will only set the stain and cause further damage to your rug.

The first step is always to remove as much of “the gift” as possible – as soon as possible – from the rug. A white cloth or paper towels work well. Keep blotting (don’t rub) until you have absorbed as much out as possible.

After blotting, you need to dilute the pet urine spot with water to reduce its impact on the rug fibers. Repeat the blot/dilution process a couple of times. This is as much as you can do until the professionals arrive.
