How to Remove Pet Stains and Odors from Your Carpet

cleaning stain on a carpet

Carpet is a great flooring style to use in practically any room of any home, even those with pets. With the right cleaning technique, it is easy to keep your floors in top condition, even if your pet has an accident. Keep reading to learn how to remove pet stains and odors from your carpet:

Find the Stain
The first step to getting rid of tenacious odors is to find the source. Spend some time walking around the carpet and mark off any areas where the animal had an accident. Use some newspaper or paper towels to blot up as much of the liquid as possible. If you can keep the urine from sinking into the carpet fibers, you are more likely to prevent permanent odors.

Wash the Stain
Use a combination of warm water and a gentle cleanser to clean up the leftover areas of the stain. Use a sponge or a cloth to blot the cleaning solution onto the stain. Once you have removed all waste, blot the area with a damp towel. Use a clean, dry towel to blot the area dry after you have finished cleaning the stain. If you have light carpets, it’s best to use a white cloth to prevent color transfer.

Vacuum the Area
Use your vacuum to make sure you got up all parts of the stain. Once you are done, you might want to sprinkle some nice-smelling carpet cleaner over the area just to ensure that you have completely covered up the odor. You should also make the area as unattractive to your pet as possible to prevent future stains.
