How Do You Remove Pet Urine from a Persian Rug

Step 1: Use warm water to blot the area where the pet peed

Step 2: Blot as much of the liquid as possible with a clean white absorbent towel. Do not rub the spot!

Step 3: Get the rug professionally cleaned within 24 hours

If you choose to spot clean on your own, pay particular attention to any indication of dye transferring to the clean cloth. If color bleeding occurs, call for professional assistance immediately. Any water damage should be addressed immediately!

If moisture remains in the rug, it can cause the wool to rot and cause severe damage. Make sure to raise the rug off the floor to create ventilation for both the top and bottom of the rug and to ensure that the rug dries completely.

Certain substances such as pet urine should be cleaned immediately and professionally cleaned as soon as possible to prevent permanent staining.


Steam cleaning will not properly clean the rug, and it might even cause the rug to become damaged because over-steaming will damage the lanolin in the wool and unravel the fibers.

Persian rugs are made with natural fibers like wool and silk. These types of fibers require more thorough and gentle cleaning, which is why it’s a good idea to have them professionally cleaned by someone who is familiar with these types of rugs.

We recommend that you do not steam clean a Persian rug at home and instead find a professional cleaner who is familiar with Persian rugs.
