What To Do To Remove Urine From An Area Rug

Hi there,

I’m Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and every once in a while there’s someone who is just h--- bent on cleaning their own rug. Oh, you know how it goes….. They saw something on YouTube!  It looked so easy!  Well heck, I even saw one guy wash his rug at a car wash!! (My thoughts were REALLY???, Who does that???)

Cleaning a rug yourself might work out for some rugs, buuuut the truth of the matter is most rugs require a professional cleaning or the end results will likely be a rug that is only good for tossing in the trash.

If you like your rug, why would you chance ruining it?   Dye Bleed, mold, browning discoloration, pile distortion, shrinkage – Geez I could go on, but I think you’re getting the picture.   

This video shows only a small portion of the steps that are necessary to properly clean rugs. It can take several hours to clean a big rug and time does not allow us to show the entire process. But I do hope you now have a little better understanding of the cleaning process of an area rug and I know folks love seeing this part of the cleaning which is why I generally show this cleaning step in my videos that I post. 

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care we pride ourselves on offering our clients the best care possible.  My advice is to STOP THINKING YOU CAN JUST HOSE OFF YOUR RUG! LEAVE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL,YOUR RUG WILL LOVE YOU FOR IT AND YOU WILL LOVE YOUR RUG ONCE IT IS CLEANED PROPERLY.

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