How to Remove Pet Stains From Carpet

Trying to remove a pet stain from carpet is one of the toughest type of spots to attempt to remove. Not only does the pet urine get into the carpet backing, it often goes through to the carpet pad and even beyond. Attempts to remove the stain often result in applying a liquid stain remover and spreading the urine, creating a real mess and making it virtually impossible to remove. What is the best way to remove pet urine from carpet?

As a professional carpet cleaner, I often have to deal with attempts that didn't work. One of two things is usually the result from over-zealous spot removal attempts: Either the spot comes back or it continues to have a foul odor. There are several problems here. Firstly, the urine is a strong dye and can stain carpet and become stronger if not immediately neutralized and dealt with. Secondly, urine contains a salt that creates an odor in the presence of moisture. This is why multiple attempts with more and more liquid often make things worse. Thirdly, urine is sticky, and if not safely removed it will cause other soils to stick to it so that over time, the spot will gradually darken.

The first step to remove fresh urine, or any liquid for that matter, is to blot it up and absorbe as much as possible. Use absorbant towel and stand on it to absorbe as much liquid as absolutely possible. This step is important before any other stain remover is applied because it will prevent the stain from spreading. After this step, try to dissolve and remove as much of the excess as possible with a neutralizing cleaning agent. Neutralizing urine is vitally important because it will prevent it from creating a permanent stain that gets stronger over time stopping the bleaching action that urine causes. Also, the sticky content of urine will also be dissolved, preventing the spot from attracting other soils that will cause the spot to darken over time.

Choosing the correct spot remover to use is also important. Are you looking for popular pet stain and odor removers? Most spot cleaning agents are designed to treat the stain, but some also are engineered to remove the odor as well. Watch out overusing spot cleaners as most are quite strong and soapy. Too much will leave a residue that could cause soil to return too quickly. For the safe removal of pet odour and stains be sure to read the directions of the product carefully.
