How Can I Remove Pet Urine from My Carpet?, Barnesville, Ohio

While you love your pets more than anything, dealing with urine stains on the carpet can be a hassle. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to deal with urine stains on your carpet, many of which can be performed using household supplies you may already own.

Tips for Removing Urine Stains from Your Carpet

Try Dishwashing Liquid

Dishwashing liquid is surprisingly useful on to urine stains. After soaking up any excess moisture at the spot, mix dishwashing liquid — about ¼ teaspoon — with a cup of warm water. Apply this mixture onto the carpet directly over the stain. Allow the mixture to stay in place for a short time, then use a clean cotton cloth or paper towels to wipe it up. You can repeat this process until the stain is removed. This method tends to work best when the urine stain is discovered quickly.

White Vinegar Can Also Work

carpetFor set in urine stains, white vinegar can work wonders. Again, try to soak up as much excess liquid as possible. Next, mix equal parts white vinegar with water and pour the mixture directly onto the stain. Once the solution is applied, scrub vigorously with a hard-bristled brush and blot with a towel after scrubbing. You can also apply baking soda, which is good for removing any lingering odors.

Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner

If all else fails, hire a professional carpet cleaner. If you have many pets, or if a carpet is significantly stained, a professional cleaner will have the heavy-duty cleansers and tools to remove stains and foul odors. This might be your best option for difficult-to-remove stains.
