Will carpet cleaning get rid of cat urine?
If you have a cat that has been acting up, you are probably desperate. Any pet urine stain is hard to deal with, but cat urine is particularly difficult. The high bacteria content in cat urine makes it much more potent. So, will a carpet cleaning remove this urine? The short answer is yes, but it may not be easy and while the urine may be removed, a stain may remain.
Light Urine Stains
Light urine stains will easily be removed by a professional carpet cleaner if they have not been on the carpet for very long. The longer a urine stain sits, the harder it will be to remove.
Heavy Urine Stains
Heavier urine staining will require more extensive efforts to remove both the stain and the odor. The carpet cleaner will need to clean the carpet and treat it with an enzyme product to digest the organic material. If the contamination is deep in the carpet, they may need to pull the carpet, clean the backing and replace the padding. Even after these efforts, you may be left with a visible stain that can not be removed.
