Are you one of the millions of Americans that have one or more pets? For centuries humans have enjoyed having pets be a part of their family unit. Pets are welcomed into homes with love each and every day. Pets of all types can bring so much joy into a home. They also bring some potty accidents with them. No pet is perfect at going to the bathroom at the appropriate place every single time. When you end up with pet urine or poop stains on your carpet it can be maddening. Today Palm Springs Carpet Cleaning is going to share with you some tips on how to remove these pet stains from your carpet.
Clean Pet Stains on Carpet Right Away
One of the most important things you can do is clean the mess up as soon as you see it. Sometimes it can be tempting to leave the mess until you are done with whatever you are doing. Resist the urge to wait! The sooner that you clean the mess up, the better that it will come out of your carpet. You will want to teach all of your children either how to clean up messes or that they need to come tell you immediately if they see one. If everyone in your family is committed to cleaning up messes as soon as possible it will help your carpet stay cleaner.
Absorb Dog & Cat Urine from Carpet
When you go to clean it up you will want to get as much of the mess off the carpet as possible before you start cleaning your carpet. If your pet has peed on your carpet you will want to get an absorbent rag or paper towels. You will want to let the rag or paper towel soak up as much of the urine as possible. You will want to apply some pressure to the rag or paper towel to help it soak up as much as it can. Whatever you do make sure that you do not rub the area. Rubbing the area will only make the stain go further into the carpet fibers. You will want to blot for optimal results. If they have pooped on your carpet you will want to grab some gloves, pick it up, and then flush it down the toilet.
Carpet Stain Removal
After you have cleaned up the bulk of the mess now it is time to clean your carpet. Get a carpet stain removal product of your choice and a clean rag for this part of the process. You do not want to overuse your cleaning product on the area. Many people spray too much cleaner on the area. This leaves a chemical residue on your carpet. The residue will actually attract dirt in the future. Allow the cleaner to sit on the stained area for a few minutes. Then take your clean rag and blot the area clean. Once you have thoroughly cleaned the area you will want to take a spray bottle with water in it and spray it onto the area. Then blot up the water. This step will help get rid of any chemical residue that may be on your carpet.
