If you have furry friends in the family, it’s likely they will leave a few stains and odours around your home at some point. Accidents happen, especially when your pet is a junior, learning the rules of home living. Pet stains are best removed quickly, to eliminate that lingering nasty smell.
If you get to the stain while it’s still wet, it’s possible to remove it before it turns nasty. Stains that set in, can become a little trickier to get rid of. The good thing is, you can talk to your local expert carpet cleaners in Adelaide if you need some help.
To save your bank balance and your legs from running to the store, you can make a stain removal solution using products you may have in the cupboard. Test any solution you make on a hidden part of carpet first, to ensure it doesn’t have adverse effects. Layer paper towels or a towel over the urine first, to absorb as much up as you can. Next, try one of these DIY options;
Visit your local supermarket or pet store to buy a non-toxic stain remover. Use the solution as per the individual instructions and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Blot the area with a dry towel.
This will be the simplest and most thorough way for you to remove a pet stain from your carpet. Having pets and kids in your home, means the high traffic areas will take a beating. Aim to get professional steam carpet cleaning done at least 2-4 times a year.
Also, when you clean pet stains up yourself, it’s likely you’ll miss some of the stain or an odour will linger. Pet urine and bacteria can soak down, deep into your carpet fibres and build up over time. Professional steam carpet cleaning will sanitise even the thickest of carpets and eradicate lingering nasties that hoovering can never reach.
