He’s Your Best Friend. Not Your Carpet’s! For many people, pets are a vital part of their family. However, their “accidents” can create challenges. Pet urine on your carpet and upholstery can do much more than cause unpleasant odor:
Facts You Need to Know About Pet Urine in Your Carpeting!
Urine deposited on carpet does not stay on the surface. It also penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the carpet and the flooring material below the carpet. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage.
Urine odors can permeate from the floor, be it cement or wood, from the tack strips, and even from the framework of the house behind the walls.
As urine dries, the liquid evaporates but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and pungent. Simple cleaning will not remove this odor. In fact, these urine crystals are frequently re-activated by moisture. Have you noticed that urine odors become more noticeable as humidity increases? Similarly, the moisture of any cleaning process may cause the urine odor to become more pronounced.
Urine can also cause permanent color damage, either from adding color by dying the carpet fibers or removing color by releasing carpet dyes.
If you have chronic issues with pet stains on your carpet, it could be indicative of an ongoing health problem. We recommend having your pet checked out by your local veterinarian. Call Albuquerque Vetco to make sure the pet stain isn’t a health problem.
