How to remove Pet Stains from your carpet.
Updated: Dec 25, 2019
If you’re a pet owner you know that accidents happen. There’s just no getting around it. When your loving pet leaves their mark on your carpet, you could call a professional carpet cleaning company specializing in pet stains and odor removal like pure clean, or if you’re up to the task, and you’re prepared, you can deal with it yourself, save some money and save your carpets. There is a third option, which is to do nothing at all – but let’s not go there.
No matter what, removing pet stains and odors is not a fun thing to do, but most pet accidents can be easily handled if you know what to do and have the products you need on hand.
So for the DIY pet stain removal, here are the items you should have handy.
plenty of clean white terry cloth towels, or white (non-printed) paper towels, white vinegar, liquid dishwashing detergent, baking soda, 3% hydrogen peroxide and rubber gloves.
If you act quickly, the little gift your four legged friend left for you has no chance becoming a permanent stain on your carpet.
If the area is still wet you should first attempt to absorb as much as the liquid as possible. Leaving it there to dry will encourage bacteria growth – which causes the odor while giving the acids in the urine the opportunity to permanently discolor your carpet. The best method for removing the moisture is to place several layers of paper towels over the wet area and apply pressure with your foot. The goal is to transfer as much of the liquid as possible from the carpet to the towels. You may have to repeat this several times and you’ll want to do it until there’s no moisture whatsoever transferring to the paper towels.
If this doesn’t work and you’d sill like a professional carpet cleaning service – call us.
