Even the best friend of man has its bad days. Irrespective of the species, breed, age, and size, your pet friend is bound to have an accident now or then. It is possible that maybe old age has caught up with him or maybe you just didn’t hear him when he wanted to go outside. Whatever be the case, pet stains on carpet are unavoidable.
You must be wondering, even if pet stains are unavoidable, isn’t there something we can do about them? Yes, there are several ways to clean up a pet stain from carpet floorings. In our today’s article we will tell you how to deal with pet urine puddles on carpeting. We have a perfect carpet stain removal recipe that you can make using regular household items.
Pet urine is one of the biggest problems when it comes to carpet spills and stains. It produces a lingering foul odour which is hard to get rid of even after removing the stain. A hard to remove stain and a discouraging odour makes for more than repulsive mess to have on carpeting. So stop dilly dallying and jump into action immediately by mopping up your pet urine. The key here is responsiveness. The longer you allow the urine to sit on your carpet, the harder it becomes to get rid of it. Once it gets into the padding, the entire carpet will become useless and you will have to throw it away.
But before you start cleaning, here’s a tip from our professionals: don’t keep our cleaning solution prepared beforehand. Our stain removal recipe includes hydrogen peroxide which will become water when exposed to air and light for a long period of time. So it’s better to just keep the ingredients ready and not the entire solution.
In order to make this pet stain removal solution, you will need liquid soap, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide.
Take a small bowl and mix two tablespoons of baking soda, half a teaspoon of liquid soap, and two cups of diluted hydrogen peroxide. Stir the solution thoroughly and pour it in a spray bottle. Don’t mix the solution too vigorously otherwise you will end up with a lot of foam, which is not something you want.
Now that your mixture is ready, spray the solution generously on all affected areas. Allow it to dry and repeat the entire process again and again until the stain is completely removed.
On a side note, you can also try to cover the entire affected area with baking soda before spraying the solution. This will boost its cleaning power. Baking soda acts as a deodorizer for urine smell. Allow it to solidify on the carpet then vacuum up the residue.
We hope our homemade carpet stain removal solution worked out for you. If it did, share the article with your friends and family who own pets.
On the other hand, if the smell and stain of pet urine still lingers on your carpet, check out our following tips:
You can try commercial stain removal solutions. But make sure to test it on a small and hidden portion of carpeting to check for side effects.
Natural enzyme cleaners are a great way to both deodorize and get rid of pet urine stains from carpet. If you can’t find one in your supermarket, you can buy them online from a reliable source.
Don’t feel dejected if the above method doesn’t work out for your carpet, there is still hope. Some carpet fabrics are too intricate and their padding too rough for homemade cleaning solutions to cut through. In such cases, you can always rely on the services of a certified professional carpet technician.
Professional carpet technicians are trained and certified to know the science behind fabrics of carpeting. They understand how everyday spills affect carpets and what is the best way to tackle them. So there is no need to feel like you are all alone and your carpet flooring is now doomed. A professional carpet technician has the required tools and skills to deal with any kind of carpet problem. In addition to these, owing to their expert knowledge and experience, the role of guesswork is eliminated. You book an appointment, they arrive on time, assess your carpet and the problem, and it just clicks to them what must be done. Their treatments are safe and help in increasing the overall lifespan of carpeting.
Professional treatments also involve much lesser use of water for cleaning. They have industrial grade tools which eliminates the need for washing and scrubbing. This contributes towards maintenance of your carpet as excess use of water can help mould and mildew to thrive.
Yes! As a matter of fact, it’s even safer than using commercial stain removal products which contain harmful chemicals. Professional carpet technicians use natural and non-toxic cleaning solutions that are safe for use around both pets and children. They also take into account the nature of your carpet fabric, its size, placement, and any allergies in the household before deciding on treatment procedure.
For our professional carpet technicians, carpet cleaning is an intricate five-step procedure. We use specific cleaning agents only after making sure they are suitable and safe for your carpet, for your family, and for our environment.
Our company specialises in several cleaning methods; the most popular one being pad-capping technique. This is a simple technique which involves minimal use of water. Our detergents are mixed with colloidal silver, making them a safe yet effective disinfectant for sanitisation.
Another popular cleaning method is steam cleaning. Here, a jet of hot water is shot through the carpet padding with a steam cleaning machine. This cleans up germs from deep within the padding. However, the one downside to this method is that it involves large amount of water which must be dried immediately. For this, we use industrial grade vacuum cleaners, air movers, and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process.
Take out your notepad. There are several things you will need to consider in order to choose the professional carpet cleaning service.
Accidents happen! Even a professional can make mistakes sometimes. Therefore it’s better to hire a company which has insurance against such rare accidents. This way, if something happens to your carpet or any other part of your property, both you and the technician can be at ease.
It goes without saying that you should want a service which uses only non-toxic and environment friendly cleaning solutions. This ensures that you, your family, pets, children, and our nature stay well protected.
You should always look for reliable certifications and credentials before hiring a professional cleaning service. For instance, all our carpet technicians have certificate of practice from the IICRC. IICRC is an organization which requires our carpet technicians to undergo periodical training and maintain a minimum standard of sanitisation in their techniques. This certification acts as a guarantee that the carpet technician you have hired has required skills and experience to deal with the problem at hand.
No one likes to deal with rude and disrespecting people. The best way to test a company’s professionalism is by calling them directly and inquiring about the methods they use for cleaning. If your query is brushed aside, they are simply not interested in doing their job. If they really want to serve you, they should take the time to explain their methods to potential clients. This shows their level of respect towards others.
There is no shame in searching for customer testimonials. In fact, you can even call and ask them directly. There is no need to be shy about it. Considering the fact that you will be hiring complete strangers to work inside your home, it’s important to know whether or not you can trust them.
