In Carpet Cleaning

Owning a pet is one of life’s few joys. However, cohabiting with a man’s best friend can prove a bit messy at times. This is where Spotless Carpet Cleaners comes to your rescue. Pet accident stains are common issues associated with pet ownership, especially with young untrained puppies and kittens. Cleaning urine, poop, or vomit stains requires immediate and thorough cleansing. The most crucial thing is to steer clear of harsh chemical cleaners with pungent, caustic smells, as they rarely remove the odor from the carpet fibers. Instead, utilize homemade cleaning products to tackle the stain.

5 Steps to get rid of Pet Accident Stains

The following are the required cleaning supplies for getting rid of pet accident stains:

  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Wet Vac carpet cleaner

Step 1: Dry the carpet

If the affected area is still wet, immediately try to soak up as much of the liquid as you can before it dries up.

Step 2: Apply a vinegar solution

A certified pet stain cleaner is a vinegar solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. It neutralizes the stain and eliminates a percentage of the odor without ruining the carpet fibers.

Using a soft-bristle brush, scrub the vinegar solution into the affected area, then blot the area dry completely.

Step 3: Apply Baking soda

Getting rid of the smell is easy if the vinegar solution hasn’t already done the trick. Apply baking soda to the area and let it settle for 24 hours.

Step 4: Add hydrogen peroxide 

Adding hydrogen peroxide to the baking soda cleanses the spot of the stain and odor while also killing bacteria. Spray 3% hydrogen peroxide on the affected area and work it with a soft, bristled brush.

Step 5: Vacuum

Use a wet vac carpet cleaner to vacuum the spot on your carpet to remove any remaining substances.
