Do not fret if your pet has an accident on your beautiful carpet. You can successfully remove both the stain and the odor from the carpeting with a few items that you most probably have at home. It is important to remove the stain completely to prevent your pet from urinating on the same spot. If even the slightest smell of urine is left behind on the carpet, there is a high chance that your pet will continue doing its job on that area.
- Use several paper towels to absorb the fresh urine. Keep blotting until no more urine is soaked up by the paper towels. Use a plastic bag to dispose of the dirty paper towels.
- Pour cool water on the area affected by urine, and extract the liquid form the carpet using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.
- Use equal parts of distilled white vinegar and cool water to make a cleaning solution. Pour the solution directly on the stained area, and let it sit until it almost dries by advice of carpet cleaning Clapham. Remove the excess moisture form the carpet with your wet/dry vacuum cleaner.
- Spread a nice layer of baking soda over the area.
- Make a solution of 1 teaspoon of mild liquid dish soap mixed with ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide. Do not use a dish soap that contains bleach to avoid damaging the carpet fibers.
- Dip a soft-bristled brush into the soapy solution, and rub the mixture into the carpet.
- Wait for the carpet to dry completely and vacuum up any baking soda residue. If the stain remains, consider calling carpet cleaning Clapham team.
