There are methods and substances that can rid the odor associated with these types of accidents, and remove the carpet stains entirely. Here are some tips for removing pet stains from carpet:

• First clean up the initial mess. If the mess is a stool, pick it up with gloves and dispose of, and if it is wet- simply use the blot method to soak up the moisture without smearing or scrubbing. Blot and blot until the carpet is quite dry and carpet stain is removed.

• Sometimes the stain may be dried on the carpet fibers, the best way to treat this type of carpet stain is to moisten it. You can do this by applying a special carpet stain cleaning product specifically targeted at pet stains. To discover old urine stains in your carpet, you might want to use a black light, which you can purchase at a home supply store. A black light will usually show even old urine stains in your carpet. Turn out all of the lights in the room; use the black light to identify soiled areas, and lightly outline the areas with chalk on your carpet.

• To neutralize the odor and spot you will need to try several different tactics. Avoid using ammonia based products to clean dog urine. One of the ingredients of dog urine is ammonia and your pet may well be encouraged to re-offend in the same area because they smell the ammonia. So you can utilize this proven urine odor removal method. Simply create a solution of 1/2 white vinegar and ½ warm water. Spray this solution liberally onto the spot. Allow it to soak for several minutes and then proceed with the blot technique until stain is gone and spot is almost completely dry. When the area has almost dried sprinkle a good handful of baking soda over the soiled area. Mix half a cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of mild liquid detergent. Ordinary liquid dishwashing detergent is suitable. Put on a pair of rubber gloves and slowly pour the hydrogen peroxide and detergent mixture over the baking powder. Work the dissolving baking soda well into the carpet, first with your fingers and then with a scrubbing brush. Allow the area to dry completely and then vacuum thoroughly.
