When you have a pet living in your home, carpet stains become a common thing. Whether they occur due to dirty paws, upset stomach or toilet training process, pet stains do not have to be a permanent mark in your home. The key is to follow a thorough cleaning approach to make your carpet shiny and pristine again.
Here are some of the tips that can help you clean some of the common pet stains from your carpets:
Dirt stains are quite obvious as pets do not tend to wipe off their paws before entering into the house. However, these marks do not leave any foul odor so they can be easily handled. In order to remove dirt stains from your carpet, firstly, you must clean up all the loose dirt. After that, use an absorbent cloth to dry out the wet spots. Spray a mild cleaning solution over the stains and cover the area with the cloth and allow the carpet to dry. Make sure you remove all the moisture from the carpet before vacuuming.
The biggest problem with pet urine is that it affects even the deeper layers of the carpets. As the fluid spreads out the underlying carpet fibers, it creates urine crystals that make the foul odor to linger on for years. Hence, pet urine stain must be treated completely to avoid causing any damage to your carpet. It is best to call a professional carpet cleaning experts who have specialized equipment and tools to remove pet urine.
This stain is probably hardest to remove from the carpets. However, by using proper methods, it can be efficiently removed. Firstly, you need to soak up all the moisture in the carpet using an absorbent cloth. Subsequently, a commercial grade carpet clear should be used and the stain should be scrubbed with a cloth soaked in warm water.
The most common blunder people make while removing pet stains is using soap or detergent to clean the carpets. This can cause immense damage to the rugs and leave in a soapy residue that becomes hard to remove. You should also avoid brushing the carpet as it can wear off its soft fibers. In case scrubbing is required, you should make sure to do it outside in order to avoid spreading the stain to a larger area.
