Are you sniffing a strange odor coming from your dining room rug? Can your guests smell odors in your home?
Pet accidents on your Oriental rug need to be cleaned up as soon as you find them. Cotton towels and clean water are the best to use. Use the towel to blot up liquid, spray with clear water and blot dry. Continue until you feel urine is removed. DO NOT RUB – it will fuzz the fibers and change the look of that area. Dry quickly by lifting rug and adding air movement with a fan. Dried urine crystals will be harder to remove at home so professional help may be needed.
Pet urine is warm and acidic when it lands on your rug. This is the perfect medium to affect the dye colors. Urine can fade colors, can add a yellow color or cause the existing colors to bleed into each other. The longer urine stains stay in your rug the harder color problems can be to correct
