Before you could get to the door and out for a walk, your dog left a calling card again, this time on the carpet. Even though this isn’t the first time you’ve dealt with pet stains before, you are not about to get rid of your furry friend. The good news is that you can easily remove the stains and odors your pets may leave.
A Simple Way to Handle Common Pet Stains
Pet stains happen-that’s why most carpets include components to safeguard against odors and spots. Common pet stains can be cleaned with a combination of hydrogen peroxide, liquid dishwashing detergent or white vinegar along with cold water. If you are lucky enough to have Stanley Steemer products such as Spot Remover and Odor Out Plus, the process is rather simple.
After you get to the scene of the accident, press firmly into the carpet stain with a clean white absorbent towel to soak up the urine. The white towel will prevent a transfer of color to the carpet. Next, spray Stanley Steemer Spot Remover on the affected area. Let the liquid sit for two to four minutes before blotting the area working from the outer areas inward. Then flush the area of the pet stain with water and blot up the excess liquid. Repeat as needed. The white towel will show how much of the urine is removed.
Removing Pet Stain Odors is as Simple as getting the Stain Out
To remove pet stain odors, use Stanley Steemer Odor Out Plus, which contains a natural enzyme that eliminates foul smells at the source. Shake well before liberally applying Odor Out Plus onto the pet stain. Then, take a clean white towel and press the liquid into the carpet fibers. Let stand for 24 hours, keeping the area damp by laying a moistened towel over the stain.
If the odor is removed from the carpet, but a lingering discoloration persists, you can treat the pet stain with our Red Wine Spot Remover. The process is similar to the steps used with Odor Out Plus, but let this spot remover sit for five to ten minutes instead.
