You love your pet, but it’s probably not your favorite thing to deal with the stains they leave on your carpet.
Don’t panic! Here’s some expert advice for what to do at the first sign of pet stains, and how you can eliminate their lingering odors for good.
Respond At The First Sign Of Pet Stains
As long as you act fast, you should be able to remove most surface stains left by your pet.
Scoop up or gently blot as much of the stain as you can. Make sure not to scrub too hard, as this can force the stain even deeper into your carpet fibers—making it even more difficult to remove.
Follow up with a spot treater or stain remover. This could be one you make yourself or a store-bought carpet stain cleaner. Just be sure to only use non-toxic formulas that are safe for your pets if ingested.
Don’t use too much cleaner—the last thing you want is to deposit soapy residue onto your carpet that will attract more stains in the future. Use a small amount and repeat as necessary. When the surface stain is gone, rinse the area well, pat dry with a towel, then vacuum up any remaining liquid.
Get Rid Of Pet Odors With A Professional Treatment
While the method above can help get rid of visible surface stains, you’ll need to schedule a professional Pet Urine Removal Treatment to eliminate odors and reoccurring stains. It’s a good rule to schedule these cleanings twice each year.
The reason for this is, when pet stains dry, potent odor crystals are left trapped deep in your carpet, padding, and the flooring beneath. That’s why pet stains continue releasing odors into your home even when they appear clean.
