Furniture & Wheelchairs
Professional urine remover for furniture & wheelchairs
Incontinent patients may urinate while sitting in chairs and other furniture. While furniture such as chairs & couches are often protected with a form of chemical fabric protector or stain repellent, even the slightest urine deposit can seep into unprotected cracks. Unprotected furniture could have a urine deposit get into the springs, causing the springs to rust if untreated. a) Using the urineFREE® Urine Detector, inspect the piece of furniture, removing the cushions to view surfaces below. Note where areas fluoresce, indicating deposit of urine.
NOTE: Always check furniture for colorfastness before applying urineFREE®.
b) Saturate areas on furniture and cushions that have urine deposits, allowing urineFREE® to penetrate into the furniture. c) Allow to air dry. d) Re-inspect furniture with the Urine Detector. e) Re-apply urineFREE® to areas that still fluoresce under the Urine Detector. Some furniture will require repeat treatments, depending on volume of urine as well as length of time urine has been there.
Failure to treat wheelchairs for urine can cause wheelchairs to rust and weaken.
