When you have pets living in our house, sometimes accidents may happen. Pet urine stains can be troubling to clean up when they happen on carpet. There are certain things one can do to prevent damage to your carpet fibers. Immediate action, and deep cleaning, combined with behavioral preventative measures can help you get your carpet looking, and smelling, fresh once more.
First thing you need to do is blot up as much urine as possible. Place a white towel on the urine stain and apply pressure by stepping on it. Repeat this until you can’t see anymore moisture in the towel. Change the towel if the stain happens to be large. After you think you got up all of it place a paper towel on the stain and step on it. If that comes out dry you can continue to removing the last of it with the paper towel.
You will need to mix a solution of one half white vinegar and one half cold water. Soak the spot with that mixture, let it sit for a couple of minutes and blot up. It is not necessary, but you can repeat the process if the stain is large. Once you blot up the vinegar and water solution it is time to rinse it out.
To rinse out what’s left, just pour some water on the spot and blot up. Again use a paper towel in the last step to determine if you got most of the moisture out. Use warm water for best results. After the spot is completely dry, sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet. Let it sit for a while, and vacuum up. It is best to leave it overnight if that is possible.
If you attack the spot quick, this method should work as a good pet stain remover. If your pets accidents are more challenging give Eco Pro Cleaning Solutions a call at 775-391-9697. We specialize in pet odor and stain removal.
