You’ve spent countless hours and dollars to make sure that your house is clean for your family, but accidents happen. If you're like most pet owners, there are bound to be accidents or spills from time to time, leading to pet stains and odors on your carpets. Here are some ways to get rid of pet stains and neutralize pet odors that can become trapped in your carpets.
Carpet shampoo is typically a mild, non-toxic detergent formulated to remove tough spots, stains, and odors from carpets. They are highly effective at breaking down and removing pet urine stains and smells.
Enzyme-based deodorizers are formulated to break down pet urine and other organic waste and make it odorless. They are often added to carpet shampoo to make it more effective at removing pet stains and odors.
Baking soda is a great tool for absorbing odors in carpets caused by pets. A baking soda and vinegar mixture will neutralize the acidic compounds that cause pet stains to smell bad, making your carpets smell fresh again.
Some enzyme-based cleaners are designed specifically for pet urine removal. This cleaner breaks down the organic compounds in dog or cat urine and converts them into odorless water and carbon dioxide. Remember that any enzyme cleaner should be used as soon as possible after the stain has been created since these enzymes are most effective when directly applied to fresh urine.
Hydrogen peroxide is another tool that will neutralize the compounds in pet urine stains and make your carpet smell fresh and clean.
And the last step you can take to remove pet odors and stains from carpets is to call a professional carpet cleaning service. A quality professional carpet cleaning service will be able to effectively treat any pet stain you are dealing with. Professional cleaners can neutralize the odor-causing elements within your carpets using special cleaning solutions and equipment.
