Your lovely expensive wool area rug once your pride and joy now is an embarrassment due to the urine smells which you cannot get out. I have been a professional carpet cleaner in Anchorage Alaska for over 30 decades. Through experience we know that these suggestions will work. Wool is obviously a natural fibber and is very distinct from other Synthetic fibbers like nylon or polyester. In the event that you were to look at a strand of wool under a microscope you would see why it holds onto the odor. The stalk of a strand of wool is covered with small pockets. These pockets get full of dirt and in the case of urine issues they get full of urine crystals. It is quite tricky to get the urine out of those pockets.
Another issue is that what seem like a little bit of urine onto the surface are truly lots of urine since most of it is hidden in the pockets. Lots of individuals including less experienced carpet cleaners do not use enough cleaning solution since they are treating what they see. Also it is pretty easy to turn a moderate sized urine difficulty in a wool Rug into a larger urine problem in the event that you spread the urine all over the carpet. There are certain steps that need to be taken to remove the urine and the odor. Remove the dirt – Due to the pockets, wool rugs are always much dirtier than they appear. If you wash a wool rug filled with grime, you will make sand. It is far easier to eliminate the dry dirt before you begin the urine treatment. Focus first on just urine stains – With a leased portable steam Cleaner flush and extract the observable urine stains using urine pre-spotter bought from your local carpet cleaning supply store or a 1/2 cup white vinegar to a quart of warm water solution.
From your community carpet cleaning supply store buy at least a gallon of enzymes especially for removing urine odor. Using a watering can saturate the field of urine with all the enzymes, gently agitate, let sit for a few hours. Stir the spot with fresh water, extract and then repeat the procedure until no longer yellow urine or urine odor comes from the carpeting. With a cleaning solution obtained from the regional carpet cleaning supply store lightly wash the rest of the carpet. Hang the carpeting up where it can dry quickly. Use air-conditioning fans if possible. If wool rugs stay wet too long they will brown. If fringes on carpeting are stained use a 50/50 mix of water and hydrogen peroxide and then wash the fringes. Be careful not to find this option on the collared part of the carpet. Check my blog http://www.lincolnshirelandscapes.com.
