Pet Urine & Feces Carpet Cleaning Services
No matter how much you’ve potty trained your pet, accidents can still happen. Pet urine and feces are problems that all fur parents have to deal with, especially raising pups and kittens.
Many pet owners have tried different cleaning their carpet to get rid of the pungent smell of pet urine and feces to no avail. What’s worse is that not only have these carpets become crusty and discolored, but the floorboards have also seeped with the smell of pet waste.
Even with the most vigorous cleaning and shampooing, your carpet could still carry the residual smell of pet waste, especially pet urine. Sometimes attempting to clean out the stain can make it spread even further into your carpet, causing the smell to become more unbearable.

Why Do Pets Urinate Or Defecate Outside Of The Litter Box?
Many pet owners might not be aware of why their pets poop or pee outside of their litter box.
Most of the time, pet parents simply think they might not have house-trained their pet enough, and some positive reinforcement is needed.
However, there can be other underlying causes as to why your pet doesn’t want to use the litter box to do their business.
A few reasons why your pet can have an accident on your carpet may include the following:
- Health issues: Like humans, pets can also get ill and suffer from medical issues that can cause them to pee or poop uncontrollably. With the help of a vet, the first thing you need to do is figure out whether your pet has a medical condition such as a urinary tract infection, diarrhea, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, or diabetes. In this case, your pet might associate their litter box with the pain they feel from their illness, which is why they choose not to pee or poop in that specific area.
- Behavioral issues: If you happened to adopt a stray, some behavioral issues might come up, and one of them is not using the litter box you’ve set for them. If you’ve ruled out a medical issue with your vet, this might be the reason your pet doesn’t use their litter box.
- Arthritis: Older animals can have a hard time walking or moving around. Because they might not have full control over their bladder or bowel movements, they don’t reach the litter box in time and have an accident on your carpet instead.

How Badly Can Pet Urine And Feces Damage Your Carpet?
Depending on how long the issue has been going on, pet urine and feces can significantly damage your carpet. The type of carpet you have, how old, and how well-maintained it is can also be factors in determining the extent of damage that’s done. What’s certain is that pet waste could be left for hours on the carpet without being noticed, making it stain the fibers more than it should have the waste been cleaned while it was fresh.
Here’s how badly pet waste can damage your carpet.
Pet Pee Can Spread Into Your Carpet And Stick To It
Pet pee—in particular, cat pee—can emit a really foul odor that’s extremely difficult to get rid of despite using the strongest cleaning materials. What makes this even trickier is that trying to clean up urine makes it spread out and smell even worse, as water reactivates the ammonia and bacteria present in the urine.
If you’ve used a shampoo or cleaner that isn’t meant to eliminate the odor of pet urine, your carpet can end up smelling foul and musty. When the odor has seeped deep into the fibers of your carpet, it’s not only hard to get rid of, but you might even get used to the smell over time, ignoring it altogether.
Your Carpet Can Become Permanently Discolored
Warm pet urine can become the perfect breeding ground for bacteria while it’s in its original acidic state. When it begins to oxidize, it can cause a reaction with your carpet’s fibers, resulting in a permanent color change if the urine or stain isn’t immediately removed.
This color change happens because of the ammonia in urine that causes a chemical change in your carpet’s dye structure. This can be especially problematic if the pee has been left on the carpet for days or even weeks. At this point, even if you try to remove it, the damage to your carpet’s dye is likely irreparable.
Your Carpet Can Be A Breeding Ground For Bacteria
Pet feces can also make your carpet a breeding ground for bacteria if the waste stays on the carpet’s surface for long. While dry pet feces might be easier to deal with, it’s the complete opposite when your pet is suffering from diarrhea or has a medical condition that can cause them to excrete unhealthy and more pungent waste.
If left for a long time, wet, unhealthy pet waste will be harder to remove, leaving residue on your carpet fibers that could attract bacteria. If you don’t use cleaning materials designed to sanitize a spot with pet feces, then your carpet will likely become a health hazard over time.
