Removing Pet Stains from a Rug

Pet stains are rarely completely avoidable.  Even the most well behaved pets can sometimes have an accident.  What results, unfortunately, is a very difficult stain to remove.  What we do in instances of pet stains on Oriental rugs is first soak the rug, professionally clean it, and then assess how best to minimize the risk of any stain that is still present.  In rare instances, regular professional cleaning can almost eliminate the stain altogether.  But in most cases, the stain will remain and we will have to treat the area further.  Often, we will have to do a color restoration process that can include redying and reknotting the area.  As with most things, the quicker we can address the stain, the more likely the chances of success.
