Hi,
can you give me some advice on how to eliminate the smell of urine from cats and dogs from wool oriental rugs?

Unfortunately I only have these equipment:
-Multiwash
-Injection/Extraction Machine

Chemicals:
-Prochem Urine Neutraliser
-Acetic Acid
-Prochem Fibre & Fabric Rinse
-Prespray of different brands for wool
-Shampoo for wool


Thanks!

soaking an oriental carpet inside a wash pit full with solution can be dangerous for the dye bleed. In this case what should I do?
Soaking an oriental rug in cold water or an acidic solution should not cause the dyes to bleed. You see this done all the time in large wash plants where there immerse the rugs in rug wash tubs/wash pits or merely on a floor where they turn the hose on full blast. The dyes are more likely to bleed in my opinion from the urine itself, cleaning attempts by the customer or from chemistry that is not completely rinsed from the carpet. Keep in mind that the carpet must be thoroughly extracted before hanging to dry. You don't want it dripping.

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
