While vacuum cleaners which are designed to remove dog or cat hair, may not be enough to completely remove the stains that your lovely pets leave behind. Great news is, there are some ways on how to remove the stain on your carpet and you can consider the following:
Cleaning the new stain
If you think the pet urine in your carpet is new, then it is best to absorb their mess through the use of wet towels and topped it with things with weight to absorb it easily. Now, run your towel under the cool water and wring it out but ensure it will not drip. Put it in the place of stain to soak the urine then leave it for about ten minutes. Thus, ensure that your towel is wider than the area of stain and use more towels and heavyweight.
Re-wet the area with water
Once you remove the towel, put a small amount of cold water in the area and begin to pour water towards the center. This will help you prevent the widespread of the urine and at the same time allow the water to work on the stain for a couple of minutes.
Use enzyme cleaner over the area
Some effective and non-toxic enzymatic cleaners can help you work by simply breaking down the existing stains to the basic elements and help you remove the compounds of smells as well as the stains itself. With the use of this kind of products, you will have an assurance that you will remove both stain and smell of your pet urine in the carpet.
Use another towel again to absorb your cleaner
After you apply the cleaning product, just follow the same procedure that you did in the first step to absorb the enzymatic cleaner and clean the area. Then weight again your cleaner with a heavy object then leave it alone overnight and pull it in the morning and see if the stain and smell have been removed.
Dispose the used towels
Pet scent should be removed right away to keep the pet from doing it again. Therefore, all the towels you use in cleaning should be discarded so they will no longer trace their smell. Make sure that your garbage bag is sealed to prevent them digging it out or urinate on it. However, if in case you don’t want to discard the towels, then wash it with hot water thoroughly and wash it twice to ensure it is clean again.
Once the area of your carpet is clean, you can use some repellent spray to help them avoid urinating on the same area again. There are different kinds of repellant spray that is available in the market and look which one is best for your needs.
