How to get rid of pet stains on a carpet

If you are dealing with a pet stain, then it is pretty likely that it is already dried or drying. Pets will soil the carpet because they never got outside, or because they lack training. As such, you might not notice the damage until you come home and spot the stain – and the smell!

With that in mind, you should consider starting off by rinsing the spot that has been stained by your pet. This should be done using plain, cold water. If you can use, a vacuum cleaner that can hold water. Keep wetting the area and then use the vacuum to bring up the water. If you lack such a vacuum cleaner, then you can get much of the same results by blotting – not scrubbing – the impacted area with some cold water and clean towels.

This might get rid of the stain, but not the smell. If the smell is lingering and annoying you, then use an enzymatic cleansing cleaner. These cleaners tend to be quite good at getting rid of and breaking down the smell entirely. However, make sure that it is specifically a cleaner for pet stains or it might not work. Also, ensure that this kind of enzymatic cleaner can be used on the material your carpet is made from.

Another option to consider trying is filling up a spray bottle with a cup of distilled white vinegar and then one cup of water. Add in one or two teaspoons of baking soda, too. Shake this together to mix it up, and then spray it on the stain. Allow this to sit on the stain for a few moments, and then blot it with a towel – again, blot! Avoiding any kind of forceful rubbing is going to be very important here.
