For many families, their pets are a vital part of their family unit. Just like other family members, we normally don’t get rid of them when they have “accidents.” And while pets can and do provide a variety of benefits within households, their “accidents” can also create challenges.
The service we provide is to break down the urine elements in the textile and clean it out. We do this by using products supplied by Centrum Force® LLC. This is their own unique formulation for rug and carpet care. It is distributed and sold by Centrum Force® LLC exclusively under the name U TURN. (Not sold in stores.)
How Pet Urine Affects Rugs
Pet urine on carpet, rugs, upholstery or leather can do much more than cause unpleasant odor:
Urine is composed of water, excess proteins, hormones, inorganic salts, urea, uric acid and urochrome. The water part evaporates, leaving moisture-loving salts that attract atmospheric moisture. These salts are not water-soluble, and the protein that remains also attracts bacteria that feed on it, causing odor.
Urine deposited on area rugs does not stay on the surface. It also penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the rug and the flooring material below. Often, without your knowledge, pets will urinate continually in the same general location, causing significant contamination and damage.
As urine dries, the liquid evaporates but the urine crystals become even more concentrated and pungent. Simple cleaning will not remove this odor. In fact, these urine crystals are frequently re-activated by moisture.
Urine can also cause permanent color damage, either from adding color by dying the rug fibers or removing color by releasing carpet dyes.
Our Rug Cleaning Process
Our rug cleaning process is perfect for removal of pet odors caused by urine. We soak the rug in order to breakdown the urine salts that cause the odor. We then immerse the rug to remove all the contaminants. We Guarantee the removal of urine odor on most rugs (Please note we cannot guarantee odor removal on rugs that have odors in their construction glue. Examples include broadlooms that have primary and secondary backings holding the yarn pile with glue between the backings and widely sold hand tufted rugs from India and China.).
Every rug that is brought to our facility is inspected and then inventoried. You may view the video of dusting a rug found on the equipment manufacturer’s website. We proudly use equipment furnished by Centrum Force®, an Ann Arbor based company.
Dusting is the most important step of the cleaning process. Over time an area rug collects dust, dirt, and debris, which can dull and scratch fibers.
We mechanically dust the rug, using the innovative machine that we designed, the Wolverine Rug Duster (pictured above). Then, most rugs are submitted to a complete water immersion wash process at our boutique rug care facility.
After the rug is washed, the wet rug is rolled and loaded into the cylinder of the Centri-Maxx® horizontal rug wringer. While spinning the rug and evacuating most of the water in three minutes or less, the rug is protected from pile distortion.

Pet Body Odors
The oils excreted from the pet’s body that accumulate in the areas where they spend most of their time cause these odors. We apply our product to these areas which are designed to break down the oils and neutralize the odor.
