Afraid to say I might not know the complete and technical answer or maybe I just haven't come across serious enough urine stains..Any advice on getting the yellow pet urine stains out of carpet? Any advice will help. I can lighten it but it doesn’t come totally out.
Do you have any pictures or more info? Sometimes little nuances matter. Was the urine coming from the dog being on antibiotics, how big is the stain , did you use spot lifter to eliminate stain, does the padding have a moisture barrier and such. We've been talking about mitigating urine salts on many occasions and there are so many ways how to deal with it, from OSR and bucket method ( the most effective for some members) trough UPT- Pro's Choice or using stain remover
( peroxide based - I prefer Prochem)which might require additional visit after application, covering it overnight and revisit it next day and rinse it out. I carry minimum of 5 products for urine treatment, that includes Odorx, Unleashed , Pro's Choice Os-1, which is also great for old blood spots and Odorcide , formula 210, which works great for smaller areas . Spray liberally on dry carpet, roll it in and repeat if needed. That's done in case when customer is not open to idea of pulling out carpeting and removing padding... it has nothing to do with taking out stains.
Any suggestions on what to use on an old sofa that wreaks of cat piss? I don't care about damage to the sofa as it's old already, I just want the smell gone, any beefier solution?
I own 1 or 2 syringes and used them, but I've always questioned the process. How many urine stains in the room can you treat this way and how efficient treatment will be. As a supportive method it's okay, not as stand alone . It does work just perfect for a cgd to get rid of the bubles, but than you're in need another tool, which is roller. Just recently I had bad case of urine treatments, so I used combo, pre treatment, acid rinse and post treatment for dry application 210 formula by Odorcide.Carpet Syringe This large capacity (60ML) syringe is perfect for injecting deodorizers deep under carpet or into upholstery or mattresses when neutralizing urine and other odors. Works well for injecting adhesive for delamination or bubbles in glue-down carpet.shop.truckmountforums.com
I have great success with Matrix Miracle, saturate stain and let dwell 30 minutes, then extract with Waterclaw. Flush with water extract again. Then clean as usual. Has not let me down yet. I just had a carpet job last week with 12 large stains thru out the house. All stains gone, all odors gone.Any advice on getting the yellow pet urine stains out of carpet? Any advice will help. I can lighten it but it doesn’t come totally out.
I had that happen to me 2 weeks ago, customer had chocolate colored carpet. couldnt see the stains used a UV light. well we found 12 stains and she was right there with me, and was satisfied that we got them all and she said there was no more. she called 2 days later claiming I missed 1. I told her that she was there with me, and she stated that was all there was. So I did go back and charged her, she was fine with it as she knew she was convinced as I was that there wasnt anymore. I always state I treated the stains I could find, but when you have a large amount of stains I let them know there may be one or 2 missed, which is why I have them go thru the house with meOSR or Matrix Miracle. Have used both and both work well.
The problem with pet odor spots is making sure you have them all. If you find 5 but there are actually 7 and you treat the 5 you are aware of, it will still smell from the other 2 spots you didnt find. and the homeowner will conclude that since it still smells, the treatment didnt work and they wasted their money. So inform, inform, inform
I realize it is possible I may be missing something.The most important thing the client should always know is that if there will be pets in the house after cleaning, recurrences are common.
Sorry, but lots of questions and answers, please explainI realize it is possible I may be missing something.
But, I have to say. Even before I ever dreamt of being a professional carpet cleaner it was my instinct (and everyone else's) to know a d understand this.
I pipe up now because off how many times I've seen this exact thing written. Like dont we all get that already?
Done being a jerk now.
Good stuff. My experience is similar to your experience poverties the years.I will add this if anyone is interested. On very rare occasions, I found that a 2 part stain remover could remove some urine stains that a single part peroxide couldn't remove. If I have a lot of urine stains I will either pretreat them all before starting the job with something like Matrix Bad Dog or another strong peroxide and only post-treat those that weren't removed. On nylon or wool, the chances of it being permanent are far more likely so the customer is informed before any work is done. Under-promise and over-deliver. It's great when you can remove them all, but that just doesn't happen all the time in the real world. Most of the urine jobs I've done over the years didn't have permanent staining and many didn't require any actual stain removers.
