Dealing with Pet Stains and Odors
You can head off most problems if you catch them while they’re still wet. Immediately soak up all wetness with paper towels, then lay down a several layers of newspapers and stand on them for a couple of minutes to squeeze out still more moisture. Add a bit of water for dilution, then repeat the drying process. You may need to repeat this a few times until the odor is gone. For big “spills” you need to pull up the rug or carpet and also directly clean and dry the underneath.
If the puddle’s had time to dry, you’ll need to sniff out its location and then rent an extractor or wet vac to force clean water in and pull dirty water out. Do not use a steam cleaner, as that will set the stain.
Afterward, apply an odor neutralizer. Baking powder may do the trick, but bio-enzyme stain and odor removers are much more effective. But always test them on a small area that’s unlikely to be noticed as even the best can damage certain types of fibers. Avoid using vinegar and ammonia, as they may encourage your pet to “revisit” the area. Keep in mind that improper treatments may only make matters worse.
Feel free to call us for do-it-yourself advice for your particular type of carpet, area rug, or upholstery.
By the way, frequent peeing in inappropriate places often indicate a health problem, especially for cats and mature dogs, so you should check with a veterinarian
