Urine Stains can become a big problem and embarassment when you are hosting guests. In New York City we know how cramped it can get in your apartment and sometimes your beloved dog or cat just needs to try and claim some territory for themselves
Often times, this claim for space will result in a urine stain on your brand new (or old) sofa. When your pets have accidents on your upholstery we do not recommend attempting to clean them with any of the over the counter products available in the market.
Often times these do not do a good job and can actually set the stains or even cause permanent discoloration to your fabric. It is best to try and blot the stain out with a white rag and then if you want to try and help with the odor use some distilled white vinegar mixed with water (about 50/50) and blot at the stain.
Of course, in order to remove the stain and odor completely the help of a professional upholstery cleaning service will be required.
At PureGreen, our upholstery cleaning NYC technicians can usually make quick work of urine stains and odors using our all natural cleaning agents.
Below is a before and after picture we took at one of our clients homes. This couch was cotton and had urine stains on it. The customer also treated the stains with one of the over the counter products she had and it made the stains bigger and left huge water rings all around.
It was not easy, but our technicians were able to remove virtually 100% of the stain and neutralize the urine odors from the sofa.
If you have upholstery or carpets that are in need of cleaning due to a pet accident, please feel free to give us a call anytime. We’d be happy to help!
