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.


A word of caution about rug deodorizers 

Adding a carpet deodorizer, baking soda, Febreze or enzyme cleaner is not the same as removing pet pee and often amplifies the problem over time.


We call these compounded stains; cleaning attempts to remove a urine spot that doesn't work result in the use of other cleaning products. Vinegar, Folex, Resolve, Nature's Miracle, OxyClean by the time the rug comes through our doors; the issue isn't a pet spot; it's chemical damage caused by a plethora of cleaning products, and it can be permanent and irreversible.

This makes successful spot cleaning and surface cleaning challenging and problematic.  


The best bet is to remove pet urine when fresh, blot the spot with paper towels first, then apply diluted white vinegar, a tablespoon to a cup of water, and blot with towels; this vinegar solution is not harmful to wool & silk. If caught fresh, there often is no urine smell or concerns with odor removal down the road. Once done, a layer of paper towel front and back to pull mosture from the rug. 

Pet urine removal in the home is possible, with some limitations are if the urine has soaked through the rug to the back or it's an old dried dog urine stain plant cleaning is strongly suggested.

Why Do Pet Urine Rugs

​The most common causes for pets having accidents on rugs 

  1. Changes in Routine: Pets thrive on routine, so any significant changes in their daily schedule or environment can cause stress. This could include moving to a new home, changing feeding times, Home remodeling, or disrupting their regular exercise routine.

  2. Loud Noises: Many pets are sensitive to loud noises like thunderstorms, fireworks, or construction sounds. These noises can trigger anxiety, especially in dogs.

  3. Separation Anxiety: Some pets become anxious when left alone for extended periods. They may exhibit destructive behavior, excessive barking, or house soiling.

  4. New Additions to the Household: The introduction of a new pet or family member can be stressful for your existing pet. They may feel territorial or threatened.

  5. Veterinary Visits: For many pets, visits to the veterinarian can be stressful due to unfamiliar surroundings, handling, and medical procedures.

  6. Socialization Issues: Dogs that haven't been adequately socialized as puppies may become anxious around other dogs or people.
