If you own a pet, you are well aware that mishaps are unavoidable. You’ll also be aware that you have no influence over where an accident occurs, whether it’s on tile or carpet. When you have visitors around, urine or vomit stains on the carpet may be extremely ugly and unpleasant. Here’s how to use an all-natural three-step approach from Carpet Cleaning Experts at Campbell. It will help you to remove pet stains and odours from your carpet!
Why use an All-Natural Cleaner?
Because you’re a pet parent, you’ll want your fur kids to be in a safe atmosphere. It’s vital to use a natural remover rather than a chemical one. Many chemical cleaners are harmful to dogs and have unpleasant side effects. Your pet cat or dog is also much closer to you and spends a lot of time on the floor. So, the next time your pet has a mess on the carpet, try this DIY stain and odour remover!
Blot the Area
To get the area as dry as possible, start by blotting it with paper towels. Do not massage the stain, since this would just spread it more. Instead, blot it with a paper towel. Continue patting until the area is mostly dry.
Apply Vinegar to the Area
Combine the vinegar and water in a 50/50 solution in a bucket, bottle, or spray bottle. This solution should be used to soak the stain. This will both assist to cut through the pet stain and re-wet it. The vinegar will help neutralise the scent of dog or cat urine, so any odour concerns will be resolved.
Prepare to scrape the stain hard after the vinegar has absorbed into the discolouration. Scrub firmly enough to penetrate into the carpet fibres beneath the surface to remove any remaining pet pee.
Pour Baking Soda, then Wait!
Apply baking soda and a little amount of the vinegar solution to the moist region and stir well. As it begins to work on removing the pet stain and odour from your carpet, you’ll see it fizzing up.
Allow the baking soda to sit on the carpet until it dries. It takes a different amount of time depending on how much vinegar you used. Once it’s totally dried, vacuum it out of the carpet, and your carpet will look brand new.
When accidents happen, you’ll want to act promptly to prevent the pet pee from staining your carpet padding, which can be difficult to remove. You may need to replace the carpet or have it professionally cleaned if this happens.
