Pets are great. The time we spend with them is great. The way they make us feel about them is great. The way they leave behind their ‘business’ on the carpet is… not so great. How many times have you had to clean up after your pet and thought, “what’s the best way to remove pet stains from carpet”? If more than once, you’re not alone. The process to remove pet stains from carpet can be quite arduous if you don’t know what to do.

How To Remove Pet Stains from Carpet

Removing a pet stain from the carpet?

Generally speaking, after any animal has gone to the toilet on your neat, clean carpet you should always soak it up with some paper towel. This will help prevent further staining from happening. After that, you could conjure up some at-home DIY solutions.  The other option is to call a carpet cleaning specialist.

Whichever option you choose, it is very important that you attend to these pet stains with urgency.  We attend to many homes where our customers have left the stains untreated  for long periods of time.  Doing this is very detrimental to the carpet as the pet urine has ammonia and uric acid which can both damage the carpet.   Whilst prolonging the cleaning process, you are also increasing the amount of bacteria created from the stain. Furthermore, any untreated pet stains will generally leave an odour that is nothing short of pleasant.  Remember also, even though our Carpet Cleaning Melbourne services are second to none, there is a certain point where you can’t do any more for removing an untreated stain.

For those of you that are wanting to try and get these stains out on your own, then we can suggest a few DIY tricks such as using water and vinegar. When using this method, make sure you first test it out on a small patch of carpet that isn’t out in the open. You first want to ensure that the solution doesn’t react badly with your carpet. Creating more stains is not the goal here!
