Introduction: Our furry friends bring joy, companionship, and unconditional love into our lives, but they can also leave behind unwanted messes in the form of pet stains and odours on our carpets. Dealing with pet accidents can be challenging, but with the right approach and techniques, you can effectively remove stains and odours from your carpets and maintain a clean and fresh home environment. In this blog post, presented by Ashford Carpet Cleaning, we’ll share essential tips for removing pet stains and odours from carpets, ensuring your home remains clean and odour-free.

Act Quickly:

  1. Acting quickly is the key to successfully removing pet stains and odours from carpets. When you discover a pet accident, blot up as much urine or faeces as possible using paper towels or a clean cloth. Avoid rubbing the stain, which can spread it further into the carpet fibres. Instead, blot gently from outside the stain toward the centre to absorb as much liquid as possible.

Use an Enzymatic Cleaner:

  1. Once you’ve removed the excess moisture from the pet stain, using an enzymatic cleaner specifically formulated for pet messes is essential. Enzymatic cleaners contain enzymes that break down the proteins in pet urine and faeces, effectively eliminating the odour-causing bacteria and preventing future staining and odours. Apply the enzymatic cleaner to the affected area according to the manufacturer’s instructions, ensuring it penetrates deep into the carpet fibres.

Baking Soda and Vinegar Solution:

  1. For stubborn pet odours, a baking soda and vinegar solution can be highly effective at neutralising odours and freshening up your carpets. Sprinkle baking soda liberally over the pet-stained area, then spray a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar onto the baking soda. Allow the solution to fizz and bubble for a few minutes, then blot up the excess moisture with a clean cloth or paper towel. Finally, vacuum the area thoroughly to remove any remaining baking soda residue.

Steam Cleaning:

  1. Steam cleaning is an excellent method for deep cleaning carpets and removing pet stains and odours. If you have a steam cleaner or can rent one, use it to clean the affected area of the carpet thoroughly. Steam cleaning helps penetrate the carpet fibres’ deep, fibres stubborn stains and eliminate embedded odours. Bodourse will use a pet-safe carpet cleaning solution in the steam cleaner and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for optimal results.

Professional Carpet Cleaning:

  1. If pet stains and odours persist despite your best efforts, it may be time to enlist the help of a professional carpet cleaning service like Ashford Carpet Cleaning. Professional carpet cleaners have the expertise, equipment, and specialised cleaning solutions to tackle even the toughest pet stains and odours.
