Often times a pet can leave unsightly damage to your carpets. Here are some things you can do to make your carpets look better should your animal leave urine, vomit, or fecal stains. Of course, you can always hire a profession like A Plus Carpet Cleaning of Redding, or you can do it yourself with this simple technique of pet stain removal.
The following steps should be flowed exactly in the order described. Failure to follow the correct order will result in a bubbly mess. After all, it’s the mess your pet caused we are trying to clean up and we don’t need to add to it.
1. White Vinegar
2. Baking soda
3. Dinner plate
4. Vacuum Cleaner
Locate the offending area and soak it with the vinegar. Once the stain is soaked, cover it with a light amount of Baking Soda. You should start to hear the carpet fizz and crackle. This noise is the baking soda reacting with the4 vinegar and it is telling you that it is cleaning and deodorizing the spot. Cover the spot with a large lid or dinner plate to keep it from being disturbed or accidentally stepped on. You will need to let it soak for a day or two. You will see the baking soda start to turn yellow as it soak up the impurities of the stain. Once the stain has had ample time to soak, simply sweep up the excess baking soda and then vacuum the rest from the carpet. Not only did you remove the stain, but you also gave the spot a residual free deodorization.
This little trick can be used on old and new spots
