Pet accidents are unexpected but somewhat easy to clean up. What is not easy to remove, is the odor itself. If not cleaned properly your beloved will return to the same spot to start his process of leaving you another gift. Pet stains are protein based and as such, can not be removed by simply spraying a carpet cleaner on the affected area.
So, follow these steps cleaning steps to remove the odor:
First, see if your better half will pay for someone to professionally treat the stain. If not, read on:
Remove any solid waste and blot up any liquid using an old rag or something absorbent. Leave on the spot as long as possible to absorb as much liquid as possible.
Second, you will need to treat the spot with some type of enzyme product. You must ensure that the enzyme product soaks all the way through the carpet into the pad. Do not be afraid to soak the carpet as water will not hurt the fibers. Cover the enzyme with something plastic and weigh the plastic down with something heave to ensure the enzyme does not dry out. The enzyme’s job is to digest the protein in the urine. The plastic’s job is to ensure the enzyme does not dry out. Leave the plastic on the spot for 48 hours.
Third. Uncover the area and let the spot dry. You can use a blow dryer or fan to speed the process, which normally takes up to 10 days.
Finally, check for odor. If the odor remains, repeat the above steps. If the odor is gone, use a good carpet cleaning stain remover that specializes in pet stains.
Pets are fun, lovable,and entertaining. These actions above will ensure you have years of fun with your pets and carpet that is odor free!
