It's inevitable. Even the best pet makes a mess sometimes. Below are the tips and techniques you'll need to remove pet urine and feces stains and odor from your carpet.
How to Remove Carpet Pet Urine Stains
Carpet cleaning is most often successful when you attack stains - especially pet stains - while they're still fresh.
Start by soaking up the excess liquid on your carpet. Use a white rag or white paper towels.
Blot on a solution of one-quarter teaspoon of mild liquid laundry detergent and one cup of warm water. Use white paper towels (print towels could transfer ink to your carpet) or a clean rag. Repeat until there is no more of the pet stain transferring to your paper towel or rag.
Now, blot the stained area with a solution of one cup white vinegar to two cups water. Use this step to remove stubborn stains or odors.
Once you can no longer see the carpet stain, rinse the solution from the carpet. Again use paper towels or a clean rag, blotting clear water on the stained area to gently rinse the cleaners from the fabric pile.
Cover the treated area with several layers of paper towels to absorb any remaining moisture. Weigh the paper towels down with a heavy, non-fading object. Continue changing the paper towels
until the carpet is dry.
