When you have a dog or a cat in your home you know that you are going to come across some accidents sooner or later. These can be urine, feces or even vomit. All of these types of accidents can cause not only stains to the carpets and rugs but they can leave a lasting odor as well. Puppies are the biggest culprit when it comes to accidents on the carpet. It can take some time before they learn that when they need to go to the bathroom, they need to use the outdoors or a potty pad that has been set up for them. While you are waiting for them to learn you may be using your time to clean these small spots as they happen.
It can be very time consuming but Carpet Care 2000 has the best steps to use to remove pet stains and odor from your carpets.
Start Removing the Stain and Odor with a Pre-soak:
This first step will either lift up the fresh accident and the excess liquid or it will help to pre-soak the existing accident so that it can be cleaned up. Start with a fresh wash rag or towel and lay it over the area where the accident has occurred. Then you want to lay a heavy object on the spot so that the pressure will help pull the stain towards the towel. If you are working in a spot that you didn’t notice right away, you need to first soak the rag with warm water and then lay it on the spot. Then lay a piece of plastic to protect the heavy object that will go on next. This will re-wet the stain and allow it to be treated.
Use a Pre-Tested Cleaner to Help Remove the Odor and Stain from your Carpets:
Pets are not the only thing that will leave a stain on the carpet, so this is the time that you will want to get out your store bought carpet cleaner that hopefully has already been tested on your carpet. Use it to treat the area as the directions on the bottle as indicated; always working from the outside of the stain to the inside. This is the step that will help with discoloration and odor.
Do a Final Soak On the Carpet:
This is the step that you want to basically repeat the first step where you soaked a rag and used a heavy object to pull out the stain and moisture.
