PET URINE REMOVAL: Dog Urine Cat Urine SAN CLEMENTE
When you have pets - Urine happens.
Often times it is on carpet. If you do not clean it properly it can leave stains and odors.
Here are a few tips for cleaning and removing pet urine and odor for dog urine and cat urine:
How Do I Clean Dog Urine and Cat Urine?
1. Immediately blot it with towels 2. Mix a few drops of green dish washing detergent with a little water and put it on the area. 3. Place a towel over it and step on it so the towel absorbs as much as possible
If there is a spot that you didn’t catch right away:
Sprinkle backing soda on it and let it dry overnight
The next day spray it with white vinegar and clean
If you like you can mix one cup of distilled white vinegar with a cup of water and two tablespoons of baking soda. That way you will have it on hand when you need it. You can spray the mixture on the dog urine or cat urine – let it sit for 5 minutes and then blot it with a clean white cloth. If you have a new pet in the house you will want to be sure to have one handy in every room.
You may also want to try one of these methods of cleaning pet urine:
Spray the urine or stain with hydrogen peroxide. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes and then clean it up. You may want to pre-test a spot to be sure the hydrogen peroxide does not discolor your carpet
Go to your local store and buy a product for removing pet urine from carpets. They use enzymes, which are really proteins that attach to the molecules and break down the bacteria that cause the stains and odors. You don’t need to rinse or blot most of the store-bought pet urine removal products. You spray them on and let them dry. They work over a period of 24 hour some take a couple of weeks.
When you are cleaning pet odors and pet urine stains, you may notice it looks or smells worse at first. Don’t worry – it will eventually go away completely.
Whatever you choose, make sure you read the labels. You are going to want something that is safe for pets (and children if they also reside in the home). Sometimes pets and kids need to keep away from the area for 24 hours some are 100% safe wet or dry.
How to Remove Cat Urine and Dog Urine Smell from Carpets
If you have stains and odors that still will not go away after trying some of the above methods, you may want to invest in a carpet cleaning for the home or rent one. These types of carpet cleaning machines use water, along with a cleaner and a rotating brush to remove a carpet stains caused by pet urine.
