Dogs and cats may be our best friends, but not necessarily the best friends of our carpeting, draperies, and upholstery. Neglected animal stains have been a problem ever since people and animals bonded together in companionship.
When urine and feces come in contact with carpet or upholstery fibers, temporary or permanent chemical reactions, color changes, bleeding and migration, damage, and odors can occur immediately or over a long period of time.
STANDARD SOLUTIONS: Test solutions first by applying small amount in an inconspicuous area to determine effect on fiber and dye. Wait thirty minutes to an hour to see if color changes or other problems arise.
WORDS OF CAUTION: Some over the counter spot lifters, cleaners, disinfectants and solutions that are supposed to address “pet memories” (urine, feces, vomit, fur balls, etc.) may cause discoloration of carpet or textile furnishings. They may even change the cleanable “spot” into a permanent “stain”. Learn more about spots and stains by clicking here.
