Call A Cleaner Carpet for Stubborn Pet Urine Stains and Odor Removal
If you catch your pet urinating on your carpet or floor it is best to clean it up when it is fresh. Fresh urine is slightly acidic and breeds bacteria. If the urine is not removed quickly, the color change could become permanent. When urine dries, it turns into alkaline salts and becomes more difficult to remove. Over time, urine will change the dye structure in the carpet fibers. If left for days or weeks, even when the urine is removed the damage to the dye structure is permanent.
