Removing pet stains & urine from carpet & soft furnishings

Are you an animal lover? Do you have difficulties removing pet urine from your carpet, rug or a lounge? 

For many people dogs are our best friends. But the benefit of having a dog does not just end there. Experts say that having a dog could improve our physical and also mental wellbeing. We enjoy taking our dogs for regular walks & pets of any nature are usually great company and great for our wellbeing.

What do we do about pet stains such as urine in our carpet, though?

It is impossible to prevent accidents, even the best-trained pets sometimes have one. Furthermore, pet urine not only stains on your carpet, it can also bring an unpleasant odour into your household.

So, what is the best strategy to fix it?

There are two parts to the process – removal of the stain and managing or removing the urine odour.

Attention dog and cat lovers

The staining damage a dogs’ urine can do in most cases depends on your pet’s diet, your pet’s age and sex. The more protein your dogs consume, the higher the presence of protein. This means that their urine will have a stronger odour.

On the other hand, cats typically urine vertically (on your wall or a chair), which means that the urine then drips onto the carpet. Cats’ stains are considered to be the hardest in terms of odour removal.

What happens when your dog or cat urinate on your rug or carpet?

Most people run straight to their laundry or kitchen cupboard and grab their household domestic cleaning products. This is the very worse thing you can do as these cleaners are not made for this purpose which usually means they will bleach or stain you carpet beyond repair.

Others go to Dr Google. Remedies on there need to be taken with a grain of salt as many of these natural treatments may help but none really solve the problems of staining and removing the odour.

Encore Carpets have many years of hands-on experience in removing pet’s stains & odours such as urine from fabric lounges, recliners, soft furnishings, carpets and rugs. Based on our experience we’ve found that any kind of pet stain needs to be treated immediately.

If it is left too late, harmful bacteria begins to multiply, which can stain the carpet permanently and leave an unpleasant lingering odour. We can provide a complete pet stain removal, neutralising and refreshing service for homeowners, hotels, motels and resorts, Real Estate agencies & tenants, as well as commercial businesses from Brisbane, North Coast, Gold Coast as well as the Tweed Coast.
