That moment you try so hard to prevent just happened—your pet left a nasty stain on the carpet! It is so frustrating when this happens and can seem impossible to treat.
But don’t panic—McGeorge Brothers Chem-Dry has a few tips to help you remove pesky pet stains and get rid of their lingering odors for good.
Act Quickly At The First Sign Of Pet Stains
Most surface stains can be effectively removed as long as you act fast. As soon as you notice your pet has left a surprise on your carpet, scoop up or gently blot away as much of the stain as you can. Absorbing the majority of the moisture first thing helps greatly in the stain removal process.
As you complete this step, make sure you only apply light pressure and don’t scrub too hard. Rough scrubbing can force the stain even deeper into your carpet fibers and makes it more difficult to treat.
Next, treat the stained area with a simple cleaning solution. Try a homemade solution or if you opt for a store bought cleaner, look for a formula that’s labeled as non-toxic and pet-safe.
Take caution to not oversaturate the area. This can leave behind sticky residue and makes carpet fibers attract more dirt and stains. It also leads to long dry times. Instead, apply a small amount of solution and repeat if necessary. When finished, lightly rinse the area and then blot dry with a towel.
