A pet-owner is always worried about the mess their pet might make, therefore, the cleaning of stains from a carpet can get really stressful. Here are some tips that can help you effectively treat the most common pet stains on the carpet:
Accidents are prone to happen, no matter how well you train your pet. It is, therefore, important that you are aware of how to effectively clean up the mess your pet might make. Start off with cleaning up the urine, if possible, while it is still wet because after it dries, the carpet fibers will take in the odor. Use several layers of paper towels and apply pressure to the carpet so they absorb the urine as much as possible.
Make a solution by mixing two cups of water, two cups of vinegar and four tablespoons of baking soda, in a spray bottle. Spritz the liquid on the spot and leave it there for at least five minutes and then blot the area with a cloth.
If the stain is heavier and more prominent, use baking soda directly on the spot and then pour a solution with equal parts of vinegar and water.
In order to get rid of vomit stain, it is important that you clean it up immediately. The vomit is acidic, which mean it can leave stain quickly. To get rid of the larger chunks, use a scraper. Absorb the moisture using a towel. Using a sponge or a soft cloth, apply a mixture of two cups of warm water, half a cup of vinegar, one tablespoon of dish soap and one tablespoon of salt to the spot. If the stain is tough, you may need to repeat it and blot the area with a clean cloth.
Another solution that may work is a mixture of one teaspoon of liquid dish soap and half a cup of hydrogen peroxide. Sprinkle baking soda directly on the stained area and then pour the solution over it. Rub the soiled area with a cloth or a brush and leave it for at least ten minutes. Blot the area dry with a clean cloth. You may have to do this more than once if it is a stubborn stain.
