Are the Pet Urine Stains on My Rug Permanent? – Prescott AZ

Are the Pet Urine Stains on My Rug Permanent? – Prescott AZ

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, we know that it can sometimes get a little frustrating when you are dealing with a pet that has been urinating on your rug.  It can get even more frustrating when there are visible stains being left behind.  No one wants their rug to have these glaring stains on it, not when it is an important part of the décor of their household and it’s something they love!  So, what can be done about the stains on your rug?  Are they permanent?

Unfortunately, pet accident stains are some of the hardest stains to remove from area rugs.  Typically, urine odors can be removed without much of a problem, but when it comes to the spots themselves, it can get tricky.

Urine effects the pH level of the rug fibers as it dries, which can destabilize the dyes used in fibers.  This leads to color bleeding or even permanent color loss.  The best way to combat permanent staining from urine is to take your rug into a professional, experienced rug cleaning service like Arizona Oriental.


DON’T WAIT TO TAKE CARE OF URINE REMOVAL!  Urine is very destructive to delicate rug fibers and dry rot is always a concern when it comes to animal urine on rugs, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S LEFT UNADDRESSED!

Dry rot weakens rug fibers and may result in rips, tears, or holes that appear after cleaning and require repairs to prevent more extensive damage in the future.

If you aren’t sure about whether or not the pet urine stains on your rug can be removed, give us at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care a call.  While stains are oftentimes permanent, we will always do our best to remove them as much as possible and make them a little less glaring.  Usually we’re able to remove stains with pretty great success. Not to mention that our urine treatment thoroughly flushes destructive urine salt crystals out from deep within the knots of the rug, removing any yucky odors. 

So don’t ley those urine spots on your area rug go unchecked, give us a call today!

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