At Zerorez, we are a company that knows a thing or two about carpeting accidents and how important it is to utilize a steam carpet cleaner to reverse the damage that can be done by spilled food, beverages like coffee and red wine and ground-in shoe dirt. Our technicians know that with some first aid on your part and some steam cleaning expertise on ours, your carpet can be as good as new again. We also know that when you’re a pet owner, carpeting accidents can include urine that not only discolors your carpeting but also gives it a distinctly unpleasant odor. Here are some steps you can take to get rid of pet urine odors in your carpeting:
Step One – Remove As Much Urine As Possible While It’s Still Wet
If you catch your dog (or sometimes your cat) relieving himself on the carpet, quickly grab a cloth or paper towels and absorb as much of the urine as you can. Remember that no matter how fast you are, the liquid is faster so once you’ve sopped up what you can see, put down a layer of towels and step on it to absorb the urine that’s already seeped into the fibers. Removing it while it’s wet limits the smell later.
Step Two – Neutralize The Urine Odor
Whether the stain is new or you’ve just discovered an old stain, the next step is neutralizing as much of the odor as possible. Make a vinegar cleaning solution by combining one part white vinegar to one part water. Slowly pour the solution on the stain, making sure it soaks into the fibers all the way to the carpet backing. Let the solution sit on your carpet for 10 minutes and then use towels to blot up the excess. Once the carpet is at least semi-dry in that area, sprinkle some baking soda onto it and wait 15 minutes before vacuuming.
Step Three – Try Over-The-Counter Products
If vinegar and baking soda don’t help to remove the pet urine odor from your carpeting, try one of the many commercial products available. Some products work better than others and some are only safe for certain types of fibers so make sure you read the labels before applying any of them to your carpeting.
