​​​​​​​Are Animal Urine Stains Permanent or Can They Be Removed From Area Rugs?


Hi folks! Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ and I know it can be frustrating when you have to deal with a pet that keeps urinating on your area rug.  Not to mention when there are visible urine spots that show up because of these accidents.  These glaring stains aren’t something that anyone wants on their rugs, especially since rugs are an important part of our home decor!

So, what can be done about the animal urine stains on your rug? Are they permanent?

Unfortunately, animal urine stains are some of the hardest stains to remove. Urine odors can typically be removed without issue, but the stains themselves can be tricky.

Urine actually changes the pH level of rug fibers as it dries, which causes the dyes used to destabilize.  This causes the colors to bleed together and, in some cases, permanent color loss.  The easiest and best way to combat permanent staining is to have Arizona Oriental take care of your rug as soon as possible.

Urine is very destructive to rug fibers and can cause dry rot if it is left unaddressed.  DON’T WAIT TO ADDRESS ANIMAL URINE REMOVAL!

Stains are unfortunately often permanent, but here at Arizona Oriental, we always do our best to remove stains as much as we possibly can.  Usually, we’re able to remove stains with pretty great success, but we will make them less noticeable at the very least.  Our urine treatment also thoroughly flushes destructive urine salt crystals and bacteria out from the knots of your area rug.

Give Arizona Oriental a call today and don’t let animal urine in your area rugs stay unaddressed!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
