Treating Pet Stains
The sooner you can get to a pet stain, the better. In this article we are going to show you the secret to treating pet stains. Pet urine left on carpets can permanently alter the dyes in carpet fibers, especially beige ones. Blot fresh stains as soon as you detect them with a clean, white cloth. After absorbing as much moisture as possible, apply a solution of 1/4 teaspoon clear dish washing liquid mixed with 1 cup tepid water; blot with another clean, dry towel. Rinse by blotting with a towel dampened with tepid water.
Continue alternating with a soapy towel and a clean, damp towel until the stain is gone. Follow up with an enzymatic product designed for pet stains, such as Nature’s Miracle. The enzymes break down stains and remove odors that might be undetectable to you but that can attract your pet to the same area again.
For stale stains, treat with the enzymatic cleaner. If odor persists, call a professional carpet cleaner to treat the carpet. In extreme cases, the carpet and paddling underneath (and sometimes even the subfloor) will need to be replaced.
Pour the liquid solution on the baking soda and the stain. Gently rub the area with a soft-bristled brush or cloth. Let it sit for 10 minutes (longer if the vomit has dried.) Use a towel to remove as much liquid as possible, then vacuum the area.
