When you have pets no matter how well they have been trained, they will have their accidents from time to time. Dogs, cats, and other pets will leave urine, feces or vomit on your home’s carpet. When your pets leave their accidents on your carpets, you will want to quickly clean it to prevent stains and odor. With fast action you can prolong the need for deep carpet cleaning. Carpet Dry-Tech will share how to remove the different types of pet accidents and how to prevent odors.
How Do You Get Urine Smell Out of Carpet?
When your beloved pet pees on your carpet, you will want to clean it up immediately. Urine is filled with protein, ammonia, and bacteria which will stain and damage the carpet, not to mention leave behind nasty odors. When you first discover the mess you will want to remove as much of the urine in the carpet as possible. You will want to use paper towels or a cloth and gently press down on the urine. The cloth and paper towel should begin to absorb the urine out from the carpet. Once most of the urine has been absorbed out of the carpet, you will want to clean the site. To clean pet urine, mix together 1 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of warm water, and 2 tablespoons of baking soda and put the mixture in a spray bottle. Spray the site of the urine and let the solution sit on the area for five to ten minutes. Afterwards, blot the solution with a cloth until the mess is cleaned.
How to Clean Vomit & Feces on Carpet
Vomit is one of the worst types of accident that can occur on the carpet. The acid in the vomit can make it difficult to remove the stain. When your pet vomits, you will want to remove the solid or larger chunks first. Use a scraper or even a dust pan to remove most of the vomit. Like the urine, use paper towels to absorb the moisture out of the carpet. Vomit can be a more difficult stain to remove than the urine. Create a mixture of two cups of warm water, one tablespoon of salt, one tablespoon of liquid dish soap and ½ cup of vinegar. You will want to use a sponge and dip it into the mixture and blot at the stain. Vomit stain can be fairly large, so when blotting at the stain start at the outer side of the stain and work your way inwards. This will help prevent the stain from spreading. Continue cleaning at the stain until it is gone. Use paper towels or a cloth to blot the site dry. You can use the same method to clean feces.
