As you can see on the picture, the problem is much large underneath than it is on the surface. To be honest, the majority of cases involve polypropylene carpets. You know, the ones that you can ‘bleach’. This material doesn’t absorb any liquid, which means any spillages or accidents go straight through. Despite being treatable, the problem will remain underneath.
Of course, wool and nylon carpet owners aren’t immune from their pets urinating on the carpet. However, when it comes to wool and nylon, they’re much more absorbent and the urine may be contained to the carpet fibers. With that being said, it’s of paramount importance that you treat the issue immediately.
The colour of the carpet is made up of dyes, and the chemical changes in the urine can have an adverse reaction with them. So, the colour of the affected area can change and be mistaken for actual urine. Luckily, this can be prevented if you act fast.
Your Action Plan…
The first thing you can do is search around on the internet for some serious advice. But, what you’ll most likely find is a bunch of temporary ‘solutions’ from so-called experts. Some may be successful, but they probably won’t address the deeper issue. If you want to go the DIY route, then the best course of action for you is to —
Blot the area repeatedly with a kitchen towel or absorbent paper
Ensure that all of the liquid is soaked up
At this point it’s decision time! You may need to think about calling in a specialist service to deal with any contamination and the underneath of the carpet
