    This is much less of a chemical problem as it is probably procedural.

    Can you please go through the steps and equipment you're using to attempt cleaning and urine removal with rugs?

    You are leaving out too many variables....what type of rug, what processes have you tried, cat or dog? Is the pet still in the home?
    Are you cleaning it on site or off?

    If you are talking Loose rugs IE: oriental rugs then we have to think about using enzymes on them in the first place.
    I have been in this industry for 39 years and have tried just about everything to remove pet urine and odors and have finally found something that really works well.

    I am not sure about the Bozo remark as I really thought that this page was set up as an open forum to help all of us stay up to date on new products and processes

    Is this a loose rug or wall to wall?

    As several have said, removing the source is the first step. A thorough submersion washing for rugs that can be washed by that mnethod is a good step. There is another thread about when cleaning rugs by itself is sufficient and when extra steps are needed. For Oriental rugs, a presoak with Wool Medic is very helpful.

    Products that are enzymes or oxidizers may not be appropraite fro rugs (but will be fine for synthetic carpet fibers).

    @Jim Pemberton would you please explain board dynamics to our friend Pat.

    You're a great ambassador to the uninitiated..

    Jim Pemberton is too saintly and diplomatic. I'd much prefer that Willy will explain the "Sutley" issue to Pat.
    His will be so much shorter and to the point :winky:
