    At this moment I have soaked the carpet with acid water. How long do I leave him soaked?

    After the soaking, what am I going to do?

    Thanks!!!

    UTurn by CentrumForce, 1 oz per gallon. Hell of a dilution ratio and its what I use on Natural fibers with urine.

    Soak 24hrs then woolsafe clean and dry, depending on your acid dilution the odour should have gone

    I normally test colours before soaking.
    But acid soak should help stabilise the dyes.
    Urine can weaken the dyes so I always tell customers on urine affected rugs that there may be permanent colour loss

    Being a Kerman the dyes are pretty stable.

    It's not a Kerman? It's a Agra from India

    The stinky mercaptans are bonded to the textile and do not easily, if at all, flush out with just soap and water alone. When you do not dislodge the source of the odor, your rug will continue to stink later. To get the odor out, you must get the urine out. You need a specific enzymatic reaction to take place: The hydrolysis of urea. Enzymes are proteins that speed up chemical reactions. In other words, the enzymes break up the urea into carbon dioxide and ammonia, two gases that evaporate quickly.

    Centrum Force U-Turn is a botanical that does this chain reaction safely and relatively fast. It has earned the WoolSafe Seal of Approval.
