If you’re a pet owner, you’re no stranger to accidents happening in your home. When your pet leaves a stain on the carpet, it may seem impossible to get rid of.
But don’t panic! There are some simple tricks you can utilize at the first sign of pet stains to help eliminate any permanent damage or lasting odors.
Act Immediately At The First Sign Of Pet Stains
The majority of surface stains can be removed as long as they’re treated quickly.
As soon as you see a pet stain on the floor, absorb as much of the moisture as possible by gently blotting it with a towel. Take care not to scrub the stain too hard. This will force it deep into your carpet fibers, making it even more difficult to permanently remove.
After this step, treat the area with a stain removing solution. You can use either a store bought solution or a homemade stain remover—whichever you prefer. Just make sure the formula is safe for pets and free of harsh chemicals.
As you do so, don’t use too much water or cleaning solution. This deposits an excess sticky residue on your carpet that attracts more stains and also increases the risk of mold and mildew growth.
Eliminate Odors And Bacteria With A Pet Urine Removal Treatment
If you have indoor pets, it’s important to stay in the habit of scheduling a professional pet urine removal treatment at least once each year.
Do-it-yourself spot treatments may remove surface stains, but won’t effectively treat bacteria and odors. When pet urine dries, potent odor crystals and harmful bacteria are left trapped deep in carpet fibers and even the padding underneath. Only professional treatments can eliminate these hazardous zones.
