• How to Get Rid of Pet Stains and Odors in Your Carpet


    Don't get rid of Rover, get rid of the pet stains and odors instead.

    If you have pets, you know what it's like to have pet stains and odors on your carpet. But you don't have to live with them. Here's what you need to know about getting rid of the stains and odors without getting rid of the pets.

    Why Do They Always Pee on the Carpet?

    Dogs and cats that urinate on the carpet do so for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is that they're young and not house trained yet, so they tend to just find a spot and relieve themselves. Frustrating? Yes. Predictable? Also yes.

    Another reason they urinate on the carpet is to mark their territory. This is true especially of unneutered males. Elderly animals sometimes tend to not make it outside, often due to age-related health issues or the inability to hold it as long as they could when they were younger.

    How Can You Get Rid of Pet Stains and Odors?

    One way to combat pet stains and odors is to address them immediately. Soak up any liquid with a clean cloth. Don't scrub, but put pressure on it to pull the urine up out of the carpet. Next, use a clean, soft cloth and a vinegar and water solution to gently rub the stain on the carpet.

    The other way to deal with stains is with professional cleaning. It's the best way to get rid of the discoloring that can occur, and the only way to effectively and permanently get rid of the odor left behind.

    You don't have to choose to get rid of your pets or to live with pet stains and odors in your home. For professional carpet cleaning that can address both, contact our team of experts at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners.
