This video shows how much damage can be caused by pet urine deposits in your oriental rug. The good news is that a lot of that damage can be corrected with proper restoration. Getting the urine out is only half the battle. The other part of the equation is making sure that there are no bacteria or other organisms living in the rug fibers.
At our rug shop in Tampa FL oriental rug cleaning starts with beating the loose soils out of the rug to make it easier to get to the embedded soils deep in the rug fibers. After dry soil removal we examine the rug to pin point where there are heavy soils or other damage to the rug. The rug is then treated to ensure that colors are locked in place so they don't migrate to other areas of the rug during the cleaning. Then the rug is cleaned and treated for any specific problems. Finally the rug is extracted and dried flat to ensure the rug does not stretch or color bleed during the drying process.
