Is pet urine harmful to rugs ?
Urine spots on rugs can damage fibers and dyes; the longer urine sits on a rug, the more damage it can cause. It's essential to address accidents promptly and use the appropriate chemistry and methods to handle the spots properly. Adding a pet deodorizer or enzyme is not removing pet pee and often magnifies or compounds the stain and future problems.

Can you clean the spot in my home?
Urine settles into the foundation of oriental rugs, the warp and weft. By their nature, wool, silk, and other natural fibers used in area rugs are absorbent and make successful spot cleaning difficult. Your oriental area rug needs to be washed in a wash plant to remove pet urine effectively. Often we soak rugs to loosen soils and contaminants like urine. There is no magic cleaning elixir; our cleaning process takes time, soaking and flushing with water through a carpet, making our pet urine odor removal successful.
Our wash process and equipment are not portable, and it's impossible to mimic or approximate our work with in-home rug cleaning equipment. It is possible to use odor masking products in-home to cover or hide odors in the long term; this causes more harm to your rug. We remove the source by washing your rug thoroughly in a controlled wash plant environment.

A common question and concern; it's important to mention that all oriental rugs are "washed" when new. This is part of the finishing process rugs go through to remove loose fibers, open the pile-up, remove soils and add luster. It's not uncommon for a new rug to be washed several times before making its way to a rug dealer near you. This type of washing is how area carpets are intended to be cleaned, and it's the most thorough way to remove soils and odors like pet accidents. While issues can arise in cleaning, like color bleed, these shouldn't be an issue for an experienced professional rug cleaner.
