How to Clean Your Rugs and Remove Odours after Urine Damage

How to Clean Your Rugs and Remove Odours after Urine DamagePet owners know the pleasure and enjoyment that a dog or cat (or a few!) can bring. Unfortunately, our furry friends can also be the cause of unpleasant odors and stains in our carpets when they have the occasional "accident". Sometimes our canine companions simply cannot hold their bladders for as long as we are away from home. Even if it has not been too long, both dogs and cats may choose to urinate on the carpet if there is even a trace of an unfamiliar odor or the smell of another animal lingering in the fibers or the pad underneath. This is where your local carpet cleaning Melbourne professionals come into the picture.
 
When a pet does create a mess on your carpet or rug, it is imperative that a thorough rug cleaning and/or carpet cleaning be performed as soon as possible. Urine can create a horrible and lasting odor if left to sit for long, because bacteria grow quickly in urine. Visible stains can also set in the fibers of your carpet, creating ugly discolorations. Even if you quickly blot a wet spot so that it does not leave a visible stain, you must still do a more careful job of deep cleaning the entire area, as pets are often drawn back to an area to urinate again if there is any remaining odor. Our pets’ have a keen sense of smell that may be hundreds of times better than our own; they can smell even the minute proteins left in your rug from a urine spot.
 
If you find your pet has wet on your carpet, there are a few steps you should take as soon as possible to prevent stains, odors, and the possibility of your pets re-offending. These can also be done in conjunction or prior to a rug cleaning Melbourne service.
  • If the spot is still wet, lay a towel or folded paper towels lightly on top of the liquid. Allow the urine to be drawn into the absorbent material without pressure, to prevent pushing the liquid down into the carpet fibers or pad.
  • After soaking up all excess liquid, place another fresh towel or paper towel over the spot and step or kneel on the towel. When the towel has soaked up fluid, fold it over and use another dry area to repeat the process, continuing until the towel comes away dry.
  • Pour clear, cold water over the spot where the urine was. Start pouring just outside the urine area and move in toward the middle, to prevent spreading water from pushing the proteins and bacteria into an even wider circle. Leave water on stained area for two minutes.
  • Apply an enzymatic cleaner to the wet area. These special pet-odor cleaners help to break down the microscopic traces of proteins that may induce pets to re-offend in the same spot. Press the enzymatic cleaner down into the fibers and pad of your rug or carpet, and leave it on the affected area for several hours, or as long as the label instructions direct you to leave it.
  • When the enzymatic cleaner has soaked into the spot for the prescribed amount of time, once more pour a small amount of cold water over the area and blot with clean dry towels until dry.
If the enzymatic cleaner does not completely eliminate the visible stain or odor, or if you notice your pet returning to sniff the spot after it has dried, then it is time to consider hiring a professional.
