URINE CLEANING TIPS
When urine is first excreted, it is on the acid side of te pH scale and very easily removed. Within hours of being exposed to oxygen it turns to an alkaline pH. When this happens it will continue to increase in alkalinity to the point of becoming practically ammonia. This explains the ammonia-like odor. At this stage the urine dramatically affects the dye structure of the carpet.
To clean the urine spot: Mix 1 part white viengar to 2 parts water and clean with a white terry towel. If you have a small extraction machine, it would be ideal to use it. DO NOT USE OVER THE CONTER SPOT REMOVERS OR ALL PURPSE CLEANERS ON URINE! YOU MAY SET THE SPOT PERMANENTLY! IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE REMOVING IT, CALL US IMMEDIATELY AT 202-659-3888.
