As much as you adore your pets, you don’t want to have to live with the smell of pet waste in your carpet forever. Pets can leave urine or other waste on your carpet for many reasons, such as because they’re sick, scared or in heat. Whatever it is, pet urine or other waste soaked into your carpet smells bad and can be embarrassing if you have guests. You need a solution that can serve as a pet stain remover and pet odor remover.
What is the best way to remove pet stains from carpet and deal with pet waste odor? Here are some tips on how to get pet urine out of your carpet, as well as how to deal with other waste your pet may leave.
Tips for Removing Pet Urine and Other Waste From Your Carpet
One of the best ways to deal with all the pet waste that ends up in your carpet is by investing in a good wet/dry vacuum. A hand-held model should be sufficient. Attack the stain as soon as it happens — or at least as soon as you discover it. Start by going over the stain a few times to pick up any waste that is sitting on the carpet. Once you’re left with just the liquid stain, start spraying the stained area with water from a spray bottle, vacuuming as you go, so the water loosens the stain, and the vacuum pulls it up.
As you start to vacuum up the stain, rub the area with the end of the hose as you spray to bring up even more for you to vacuum up.
If you do this for long enough, it should get up most or all of the stain. However, it will not do anything about the odor. To deal with this, once you’re done cleaning up the stain, cover the area thoroughly with white vinegar. As it dries and evaporates, it should take the waste bacteria and smell with it. Be sure to thoroughly clean your vacuum once you’re finished with the procedure.
Steam Cleaning for Pet Waste
This method will often be very effective at dealing with pet stains, and the vinegar should take care of the odor. However, if you’re dealing with large or multiple stains that have had a chance to set before you could get to them, you will probably need professional help.
