How to Remove Old, Dried Urine Stains from Carpet

Every stain is harder to remove if left to dry. Pet urine stains except unsightly, can be very smelly, too. However, it is not possible to follow every step of your pet in order to act immediately when an eventual accident happens.
When you find an old urine stain on the carpet, you can completely remove it utilizing minimal efforts by following the simple steps, suggested by cleaner Clapham, below:
  1. Get the following items: old cleaning rag, spray bottle and hydrogen peroxide.
  2. Mix one part of water with two parts of hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle (for instance, 1/2 cup of water to 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide). Test the cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area of the carpet first as some bleaching products can cause fading to the carpet dye.
  3. Spray generously the old urine stain with the cleaning solution, making sure to soak the area well. Wait for a few minutes, giving enough time the hydrogen peroxide to make a chemical reaction with the bacteria in the urine. You will know whether the solution is working or not, if it is fizzing.
  4. After the fizzing has stopped, blot the affected area with a rag. Press the rag onto the stain with your hands to remove the moisture that is deep in the carpet and padding. The harder you press, the more urine will get out.
  5. Repeat the process if necessary. If the urine odour is still sensible, call carpet cleaning Clapham to give you some free advices about how to eliminate the unpleasant smell of urine.
