Urine Odor Removal from Carpet
Urine is a difficult odor to remove. A general rule is if over 20% of the carpet has been saturated, it is too costly to try to deodorize. Urine is detected more in the humid months due to moisture getting trapped in the salt crystals of the urine and emanating an ammonia odor.
Female dogs and cats have higher levels of nitrogen in their urine. Females will usually choose areas of high traffic and away from walls. The higher nitrogen attacks the dyes in the carpet, usually leaving a lighter stain on the carpet. Some urine stains are not noticed until after the carpet is cleaned. If there is a true stain, this can only be corrected by dying the carpet. Stains are permanent otherwise.
Male animals will mark veritcal territories and furniture. Keep in mind urine on walls can spread to baseboards, moldings and other material. Urine is acidic, but, once it is dried it leaves a salt alkaline residue.
