Cleaning Urine Stains From Carpets
If you have very young children then from time to time accidents might happen. If you have a pet dog, cat or other house pet then they may wee on your carpet. Urine can stain carpets and fabrics as well as smell, especially if not treated promptly. Discolouration can occur and surprisingly other than the obvious yellowing due to the urea in the urine. stains can also become red or orange according to which animal made the stain and the colour of the carpet.
Removing urine stains
It can be difficult to remove urine stains completely from carpets and indeed fabric furniture. If you can get to the stain quickly before it has dried then the first thing to do is try to blot up as much of the urine as possible. A special urine neutraliser can be used on fresh stains immediately and blotting can be repeated to get as much of the urine out of the carpet as soon as possible.
If the stain has been left to dry or has dried because the stain went unnoticed then a different regime needs to be used. A hot fibre and fabric rinse is used and then a machine extraction can be done. This may need to be repeated 2 or 3 times. Please note that a special extraction machine should be used that only a professional carpet cleaning company would have. The machines that you rent are not the same as the professional models that are specifically designed for these types of jobs. At Peterborough Carpet Cleaners we sometimes find that customers have attempted to remove a stain only to make it worse, which is when we are called. If you are unsure about a stain it is best not to attempt to treat it yourself. Finally a urine neutraliser is used and the carpet is left to dry. Some urine stains can be permanent especially on wool or nylon fibre carpets.
