URINE ODOR REMOVAL FROM AREA RUGS and CARPETS
Urine, whether animal or human, poses many risk factors for rugs. The urine odor signals bacterial action and the stains are unattractive. The urine stains get darker and, over time, the very foundation of a rug can incur damage in the form of dry rot. Urine also attracts moths to feed on the protein fibers.
The byproducts of urine, urea crystals, CANNOT be totally removed by a cleaning process alone. The crystals are microscopic and adhere to the foundation and fibers of a rug. The urine odor is caused by bacteria eating the urea crystals and other bacteria eating those bacteria in an endless cycle.
This cycle is interrupted during drier times such as winter, but high humidity and high temperature will activate the bacteria and start the cycle again.
At ABC, we have developed a Guaranteed Urine Decontamination system that enables us to remove all urine odor (not stains) from any natural fiber rug that goes through the process. The odor is removed by eliminating the source of the problem (dissolving the urea crystals), not masking it with enzyme digesters or deodorizers. For complete information on ABC's Urine Decontamination process and for tips on how to properly treat old/dry and fresh/wet urine, please click here.
