Pets are vital members of the family. Even when they have accidents, it’s only natural—and Chem-Dry can assist with pet odor removal.
Eliminating pet stains and odors doesn’t have to be difficult. Our professional pet urine removal method will make it easy, plus these tips for removing pet stains from your carpet between our visits.
Homemade Cleaning Solutions
Not only is making your own carpet cleaning solution cost-effective, but it’s also natural and safe. Always test a small area of your carpet before using any new method, use a small amount of cleaning solution to avoid creating too much residue, and rinse the area after you’re done to remove any leftover cleaner.
Dishwashing Detergent. Combine ¼ teaspoon of dishwashing detergent in one cup of warm water. Spray the stain and repeat as needed until the stain is gone.
Ammonia. Mix one cup of water with two tablespoons of ammonia. Treat the stain and repeat as needed, then rinse and dry to finish.
Baking Soda And Vinegar. Cover the stain with white vinegar, then sprinkle baking soda on top. Cover the area, let it sit for a day or two, then scoop up any remaining powder and rinse and dry the area.
Hydrogen Peroxide. Combine four tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and a couple of drops of dish soap with two tablespoons of warm water. Let the solution sit on the stain for about ten minutes, repeat as necessary, then rinse and dry the area.
Store Bought Cleaners
If you don’t have any of the above ingredients on hand, or if you just prefer to use a store-bought cleaner, that’s no problem! Just make sure it is non-toxic and safe for pets. Some of our favorites are OxiClean, Resolve, or Spot Shot. Use a small amount at a time until the stain disappears, then rinse with cool water and dry with a soft towel.
Professional Pet Odor Removal
Even if you always clean up pet accidents immediately, sometimes the stain and odor don’t go away. That’s when you need to call in a professional pet odor removal company like us!
When pet urine dries, it leaves behind potent crystals that contain bacteria and cause odors. Chem-Dry’s specialized equipment quickly blasts these odor crystals away, leaving your home clean and smelling fresh.
