Having pets adds more love to your life. But if you have carpeting in your home, keeping a clean floor can be challenging. Even with the best potty training, accidents happen.
To help you keep your carpeted floors fresh and clean, here are tested approaches for removing pet odors and stains from carpeting from a respected carpet cleaning company.
DIY Cleaning Solutions
Using a Do-It-Yourself cleaning solution offers an affordable and convenient way to address accidents quickly. For the most part, they are quite effective at eliminating odors and surface stains.
However, before using any of these suggested treatment solutions, always test a small area first. This step helps to ensure your carpet won't react badly or become discolored. When applying, gently blot the area to avoid pushing the stain deeper into your carpet fibers.
Vinegar And Baking Soda - First, apply vinegar to the stained area. Then, sprinkle a bit of baking soda on top. Cover the affected area with a small towel for a day or two. Clean up the dried baking soda, use cold water to rinse, and blot the area dry with a clean cloth.
Hydrogen Peroxide - Combine four tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide, a small amount of dish soap, and two tablespoons of warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the stain, then rinse and towel dry the area.
Dishwashing Detergent - Using a spray bottle, mix a quarter of a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent with a cup of warm water and spray on the stain or affected area. Then blot dry with a towel. If needed, you can spray the area more than once.
Ammonia - Mix a solution of one cup of water and two tablespoons of ammonia and rinse the affected area. Dry with a towel.
Store-Bought Animal Stain Removers
If you prefer to use a commercially available pet stain remover, always choose solutions that aren't toxic to pets. Popular pet stain removal brands include OxiClean, Resolve, Nature's Miracle, and PetSimplicity.
For best results, follow the instructions on the product to lift away the scent and stain. Avoid using too much solution, as this can cause a sticky residue.
