If urine penetrates down into the carpet backing and pad, and isn’t completely removed while fresh, it can cause a lot of irreparable damage to your wool carpet. The chemical composition of urine changes as it dries and ages.  Permanent yellow stains and a persistent, unpleasant odor problem can result.
   Urine contains protein, urea, organic waste and zillions of bacteria.  Therefore, the goal is to physically remove all of the contamination possible.  This task is extremely difficult without a wet-vacuum to extract the urine from the carpet. 

How to remove urine stains from wool carpet with a wet vacuum.

Procedure with Wet-Vacuum
1.  Vacuum up all the urine possible. (Do not use your regular household vacuum, it will be ruined.   A wet-vacuum is designed specifically to vacuum up liquids.)

2. Gradually pour club soda (if you don’t have any club soda, cool water may be used) on the affected area and vacuum continually as the club soda enters into the carpet fibers.  This flushing action can remove the majority of the contamination from the carpet fibers.  Please be careful not to over wet the carpet.

3. Moisten an absorbent white cotton towel with a WoolSafe approved spot cleaner and gently BLOT (do not rub) the carpet surface where the accident occurred.

4. Perform a final blotting of the area by placing a clean absorbent white cotton towel over the affected area and standing on it.

5. Sprinkle absorb-it over the affected area.  Cover an additional 2 inches of area around the urine deposit with the absorb-it.  Gently press the absorb-it into the affected area.

6. Allow the absorb-it to remain undisturbed overnight. 

7. When dry, thoroughly vacuum the area to remove all of the absorb-it. If any discoloration remains, consult with your Certified Wool Care Specialist.
