How to remove urine odours originating from stains buried deep down in a carpet?

Our tips

urineFREE treats and removes urine odours that originate from deeply buried urine stains by seeping down through the carpet to the underlay and floor to get to the urine deposit.

Always spray or stream sufficient urine remover to ensure the top of the carpet is soaking wet.  As this happens, the urine odour may initially be stronger and the colour darken as the urine rises to the surface. This is common and repeat applications will get it all.

Often urine has seeped as far as the underlay & floorboards. If you can lift the carpet and treat the back of the carpet, the underlay and the subfloor this would be speed up the remediation process. If you can’t lift the carpet, you need to bleed the urine to the surface and this takes time, persistence and enough product.  After every treatment remove the sticky residue with a damp cloth. This residue is a by-product of the bio-remediation process.

Why is the stain becoming larger, darker and the odour stronger?

Often stains may become larger, darker and the odour stronger when they rise to the surface – this is common. This is the urine in the sublayers rising to the surface for further treatment and removal. These stains can take two to three treatments with urineFREE and you will see the stains become lighter and smaller upon further treatments until they eventually disappear. The sniff test for urine odour is the best way to double check the urine has gone as even if you can’t see it there may still be urine lingering. This is when you know you have got all the urine. 

Burn marks on carpet

Old urine stains that have not been removed or not removed correctly will have greater exposure to the urine and the acidity of the uric acid crystals. Unfortunately in some carpets & rugs, especially wool blends, the uric acid crystals can cause burn marks that look like a stain but have actually discoloured the carpet/rug. Please note this is irreversible. urineFREE will remove the urine and in turn the urine smell but it can not remove burn marks. The same applies with urine burn marks on wood floors however unlike wood floors where you can sand back and return the wood the its original state, carpets do not have this option. This is why we encourage removing urine as soon as possible for all surfaces and using only a bio-enzymatic product such as urineFREE will remove the urine for good.
