If you have pets, accidents are inevitable no matter how much they’re trained. Chem-Dry offers professional pet odor removal in the San Antonio area to help with this hidden issue in many homes.
Spills, stains, and messes are an unfortunate reality of life. But our professional method can help make cleanup a breeze! That’s why we recommend professional pet odor removal on a regular basis.
You can keep your carpets free of pet stains and odors in between professional cleanings with a few simple tips. Here are three effective methods for removing pet odor and stains from carpet.
#1 – Have A Store-Bought Cleaner On Hand
To remove pet stains and odors, use a pet-safe stain remover. Some popular options are OxiClean, Resolve, or Spot Shot. Apply a small amount at a time and repeat as needed.
#2 – Do-It-Yourself Solutions
It can be helpful to have some homemade cleaning solutions around the house for when you need them. However, as with any cleaner, it’s important to test a small patch of your carpet first. If the solution alters the color of your carpet fibers, then don’t use it.
To begin, pick up or blot the majority of the stain away. By doing this, you enable the cleaning solution to reach deep into your carpet fibers and attack the root of the problem. Gently apply a small amount of cleaning solution at once and repeat until satisfied with results. A quick tip- avoid dumping an excessive amount of cleaner on top of the already present stain.
Our favorite DIY cleaning solutions for this are to treat it with vinegar, then top it off with baking soda and let sit overnight. Another solution is to mix dishwashing detergent with warm water. If you do use ammonia or hydrogen peroxide on the stain, always remember to dilute in water first.
