How To Remove Pet Stains From Carpets Utica NY


Most pet owners have had the challenge of cleaning up a mess or finding a wonderful “present” from their loving pet.  Frustrating? Yes!  Infuriating?  Absolutely!   But don’t be too hard on your little loved one.  After all he’s only “not human”.  Here are a couple methods to help remove the pet stains and the odors from your carpets, associated with these “presents”. 

  • Of course the first thing we need to do is remove the initial surprise.  If there is anything solid on the carpet remove it as soon as possible (I prefer the one rubber glove on/fingers pinching the nose method).  If it’s wet, just use the blotting method to soak anything up without rubbing grinding, do this as long as needed until the spot is dry to the touch and the stain is removed (have one of your children or spouse check for youJ).
  • Now sometimes our precious little angel’s leave us “presents” in inconspicuous places and the stain may have dried into the carpet fibers.  I have found that the best way to deal with this type of stain is to moisten it, then apply an enzyme based, pet stain remover, then use the blotting method stated above.
  • In order to get rid of the odor you may have to try a few different techniques.  You can try quarter cup of white vinegar with a about a quart of warm water then spray the stain.  Allow it to set in for 10 to 15 minutes then re-wet and blot.  Also sprinkling baking soda on the spot can absorb odors.  Just sprinkle it on heavily, let it set for a half an hour to an hour and vacuum out. You can also use store bought odor removers but make sure to get any residue out of the carpet because they can attract dirt and cause damage to your carpet fibers.

If you have a pet stain that has soaked into your carpet pad and you it keeps “wicking” to the top and you can’t get rid of the odors you should probably hire a professional.  A good professional carpet cleaner will have high powered extraction equipment that is specifically designed for pet stain and odor removal.
