As much as we love our furry family members, they can really make a mess in our homes. From having potty accidents to pet dander and vomit, you may find yourself cleaning up after them more than once. Today, we could like to talk about the best ways to remove vomit stains from your carpet. Carpet Care 2000 has the experience and expertise needed to provide you with the steps necessary to get rid of any trace of vomit that your pet may have left you on your carpet.
How to Clean Fresh Pet Vomit From Carpet
It is always ideal if you can get to a vomit stain right after it happens. Unlike children or other family members, pets don’t always make a big fuss when they are vomiting. You may not notice that they have thrown up until many hours later. If you do by chance get to it while it is fresh, follow these steps to remove it from your carpet.
– Remove any chunks with a spoon or other similar tool.
– Dilute either hydrogen peroxide or white distilled vinegar with some tap water and spray it on the spot. Make sure you are only using one or the other and not both of those ingredients.
– Using a clean, white cloth, blot the stain until you have removed it completely. You may have to follow the previous step and this step more than once to get it completely gone.
Old Vomit Remover from Carpet
When you aren’t able to catch pet vomit right after it happens, you may be dealing with a stain and odor that is more difficult to remove. While vinegar is still helpful in removing it, you will need to add baking soda to give it the punch it needs to knock out the odor as well as remove the stain. You will want to completely cover the stain with a decent amount of baking soda and then spray enough of your vinegar or peroxide mixture that the baking soda is saturated. Now the most important thing to do is to wait until the baking soda is completely dried before vacuuming it up. If there is any stain that is lingering, you will want to repeat the process.
Patch Test Before Cleaning Vomit Stains on Carpet
It is important to note that before you use any new cleaning solution on your carpet, you need to test it on an inconspicuous area to ensure it isn’t going to damage your carpet. Only proceed to clean the area after you have tested and found that no damage is present.
