Pet Stains On The Carpet – What Now?
It’s an inevitability every pet owner faces at some point: your beloved furry family member gets a bit too excited and ruins the carpet. It’s unfortunate, but it doesn’t have to be a total disaster. There are a number of steps you can take to save your carpet, clean the stain, and keep your home looking nice without having to confine Fido or Fluffy to the hardwood floor areas.
Speed Is Important
After the initial accident occurs, it’s best to take care of the situation as soon as possible. This is especially true with vomit, as this is acidic and can permanently discolor your carpet if it is allowed to sit.
Clean, Don’t Scrub
If you are attempting to correct the stain on your own without professional help, this may be the hardest lesson to learn. Though it may be difficult, you want to soak up any excess wetness, gently but firmly blot the area with rags or paper towels, but never attempt to clean the carpet by scrubbing. If you are too aggressive, you can actually embed particles of the mess into the carpet’s fibers, creating a longer-lasting stain and odor.
“Wet Vacs” and Pet Stains
One common way to deal with pet stains is to use a “wet vac.” This is a vacuum cleaner that jets clean water deep into the fabric of your carpet, loosening up deep-seeded particles and then sucking out the dirty water. Using a wet vac can be a simple solution, but professional assistance is sometimes needed for more intense stains.
