In most households, pets are quite common. The loyalty, comfort, and affection they provide is usually unmatched and quite a few people prefer them to human companionship. Most pet owners are quick to forgive after the annoyance of treating the carpets have vanished, no matter if they have the occasional accident or even a chronic one.

Pet Stain Remover Recommendations
The basics you should apply to the process and some things you need to avoid during stain and odor removal process are outlined below.
– Because dyes or print from towels, paper towels, and rags can be transferred onto carpet during treatment, be sure to only use the ones that are plain and white.
– Never rub or scrub since it will only increase the depth of the stain. Being blotting on the outer edges of the stain and work towards the center.
– Always test all cleaners and home remedies in an inconspicuous area to be certain it does not compromise the integrity or color of your carpet.
– If necessary, use dry cloths to blot in between applications to control the moisture to avoid oversaturation.
– These stains can easily set into the carpet, so never use HOT water to treat pet stains.
Pet Stain Removal & and Odor Neutralizer Steps
For stain and odor treatment, collect the following supplies:
– Sponge or cloth
– Spray bottle optimal or bowl/bucket
– 2 cups lukewarm water

Treat Carpet Stains – Compared to treating a pet stain that is fresh as opposed to one that has had time to set in, the difference is significant. With your choice of rag or paper towel(s), blot up the excess liquid and solid mess as quickly as possible. Once you blotted the initial liquid, use additional dry rag placed on the area with a heavy weight on top of it and allow it to absorb the deep moisture for about 5 minutes. The stain is easier to remove when the maximum amount of fluid is removed.
Prepare Cleaning Solution – In a bucket, bowl, or squirt bottle, combine the lukewarm water and white distilled vinegar. To manage the fizzing, so slowly add baking soda since it will fuzz. Administer the solution generously being careful not to make the area too wet. Allow it to breakdown the stain for 5-20 minutes.
Attend to Stain & Rinse – Using dry cloth or towel, blot the moisture out. Using a water-damp cloth, blot the area again to remove any residual solution.
Dry Carpet – Lay a dry towel over the top of the area and weight it down with books or other heavy objects. Follow up with a thorough vacuuming only after the area is completely dry.
How to Treat Old, Dried Carpet Stains – Should you discover a pet stain that has dried out, spray lightly with water and generously sprinkle baking soda and let is set for 30 minutes (when the area is completely dry). Vacuum well after it is dry. If stain removes, re-dampen and repeat the steps above.
Keep in mind, if you use a commercial product, ensure it is an enzyme-based cleaner to remove pet stains since they are protein-based stain.
