How To Get Pet Urine Out of Your Carpet
Getting rid of pet urine is not easy. It is best to act quickly but there are cleaning methods that work even if the stain has had enough time to set in the carpet.
Use a paper towel or a rag to dab over the urine. Absorb as much as possible to prevent the urine from setting into the carpet. Do not rub over the stain or you will cause the urine to set deeper into the carpet. Dab until the stain feels dry.
Prepare a solution with warm water and white vinegar. White vinegar is the best way to get rid of urine smell without using chemicals. Spray the solution over the urine stain and wait a few minutes. Dab the spot with warm water and let it dry.
You can also clean a urine stain with baking soda if you managed to absorb most of the urine with a paper towel or a rag. Sprinkle baking soda over the spot and wait for fifteen minutes for the baking soda to absorb the smell. Vacuum the baking soda and the stain should be completely gone.
Tougher stains can be removed with a mix of hydrogen peroxide and dish detergent. Mix half a cup of a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with a spoonful of dish detergent and add warm water. Spray the solution on the stain and rub with a soft brush or a sponge. Rinse with warm water and wait for the spot to dry.
These are the best methods you should use to remove a urine stain from your carpet. If nothing else works, rent a steam cleaning machine or contact a professional carpet cleaner to get rid of the stain. You should also use an indoor urine deterrent spray if you have a hard time with house breaking your pet.
