Pet Stain Removal

Many customers have asked us questions about removing pet urine stains.

Q. How do you remove pet urine stains from carpet and upholstery?

A. We love our pets, but they also require lots of clean up, including urine stains on carpet and upholstery. Usually the stains appear as absorbed, yellowish or brownish discolorations and are more apparent on lighter-colored carpets and upholstery.

There are many pet stain removal products on the market, usually available in the cleaning supplies section of your local grocery store. Before using any cleaning product, it is important to test for colorfastness, by applying a small amount on an unexposed area of the carpet or upholstery. Let stand for five minutes, then rinse. If the color is affected, don’t use the product. Never over-wet the area, and always use clean, white towels or paper towels. If the stain removal formula is unable to remove the stain, try mixing one teaspoon of ammonia with 1/2 cup water and blot. Blot any remaining stain removal agents or moisture with a clean, white towel, and let dry.

So, first test and be patient. If the stain persists after this process, it may become necessary to seek advice from a carpet cleaning professional.
