How To Remove Pet Stains From Carpet

When you own a pet, it is only a matter of time before they have an accident indoors. These accidents can occur at any time, whether it is during house training, as a result of old age, because they have experienced a stressful or exciting period or something unrelated. Removing pet stains from carpet is a skill that can be mastered quickly, easily and efficiently with our help.

Here we will discuss how to remove both old and new pet stains from your carpet so you can enjoy a clean and fresh smelling space.

How to Treat a New Urine Stain

It goes without saying that fresh stains are easier to clean than older, dried ones. The earlier you can jump into action, the better. Immediately blot and dab the affected area to remove any excess urine. Use paper towels or a microfibre cloth that can be disposed of afterwards so the smell doesn't linger.

Once you have soaked any excess liquid, prepare and apply an enzymatic cleaning solution. This is essential as it breaks down the urine molecules to eliminate it at its source, rather than just masking the problem. For a top enzymatic cleaner, choose PetLab. Made from natural, plant-based ingredients that are free from harmful chemicals, their products are completely safe to use around your family and pets.

Leave the solution to work its magic, paying close attention to the instructions on the back of the bottle.

Treating an Old Urine Stain is Easy Too

Removing an old stain works in a very similar way but it will likely take extra treatments depending on how long it has been there. The fantastic feature of PetLab is that the enzymatic solution covers a wider surface and penetrates deeper than other cleaners to access even the toughest of stains.

The main difficulty that you will come across when treating an old stain is actually locating it. Whilst vomit and faeces can be easy to spot, urine can be trickier as the smell is so pungent it is hard to find. Once you find the problem area, simply follow the instructions as you would for a fresh stain whilst allowing extra time for additional courses of treatment.

Follow the Treatment With a Disinfectant Cleaning Spray

Whilst an enzymatic cleaning solution helps to remove the smell and break down the stain, there are occasions when other bacteria and viruses are left behind. To guarantee you have completely eliminated the problem, follow with a disinfectant cleaning spray. This will kill the remaining germs and restore your carpet to a safe space that the whole family can enjoy.
