If you’re a pet owner of an adorable puppy or kitten, you will probably know the frustration of potty training!
It’s not a pleasant smell when pet urine is soaked into the carpets – but don’t worry – St Anne’s Cleaning have some steps you can take to get your carpets and your home smelling fresh again.
Step One: Scrape the Surface
You’d be surprised to how quickly your pet’s urine dries up, if that’s the case, you will need to begin by scraping the surface with a steel brush. Bodily fluids have a habit of creating such odd stains and smelly odours. If the stain is still wet, use a damp cloth or paper towel to dab it.
Step Two: Cleaning Solution
Mix up a solution of washing up liquid and warm water. It’s advisable to mix one teaspoon of washing up liquid into a cup of warm water, making your cleaning solution more effective against the fluid stains. Pour your solution into a bucket or bowl and gently dab the stain with a dishcloth dampened in the solution.
Step Three: Even More Cleaning Solution
If your youthful pets stay young for much longer, you will begin to feel like a wizard mixing up potions, as it takes a bit more than fairy liquid to handle urine stains. Add a tablespoon of white vinegar into half a cup of water, pour your solution into a bucket or bowl and stir it together and work your magic!
Step Four: Clear the Stain Away
If you’re having trouble getting the stain out, try to begin rubbing your cloth on the stain in small and circular motions, from the outside and moving in gradually. Try not to rush, as you want to be sure the solution has a chance to destroy the stain.
Step Five: Rinse and Dry
Once you are happy with the result, finish off the job by adding some warm water onto the surface, remembering to dry it afterwards. A wet carpet can grow mildew if not taken care of.
A sure way of making sure your carpet is completely clean of any pet related stains is to call the professionals in!
