Having a pet is a life-altering experience, but they come with multiple responsibilities, including pee training. Even though every pet owner trained their beloved pets to urinate or poop at a specific spot, sometimes they miss the spot and start using their living space.
Has your pet peed on the carpet? There might be multiple reasons behind that, but you need to identify the triggering one and then control it accordingly.
Why Does Your Pet Pee On The Carpet?
First, you need to identify why your pet has peed on the carpet to control that problem and then move onto the next problem i-e cleaning the stain and removing the smell. Dogs have a very sharp sense of smell, and they can identify the spot where they have peed earlier and assume it is the peeing spot.
Once you figure out why your pet is acting out, the next thing is to remove the pee from the carpet. Removing fresh pee stains is convenient as compared to the older ones.
Sopping is the most effective remedy to remove as much pee as you can. Use various layers of paper, towels, and rags to soak up the liquid.
Pour some water and soak up the water with more paper and towels. Spray the spot with vinegar which is an excellent antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiseptic.
Pour a generous amount of baking soda into vinegar to ignite the reaction, cover the spots with a paper towel and remove the dry soda with water the next day.
Removing the Stains
If your pet urinates on the carpet and now there is a big fat stain, then you don’t need to panic. If you are looking for absolute spotless cleanliness, you can hire professional cleaning services. If not, then here are a few methods to try at home.
Mix a ½ teaspoon of dishwashing liquid with a cup of warm water and pour the mixture on the stain. Blot the spot with a paper towel and remove water using paper and vacuuming.
Keep on repeating the steps until you get the desired results.
Baking Soda and Vinegar Solution
Mix equal amounts of vinegar and baking soda in a bowl. Now take a rag and apply the mixture to the stain. Scrub it with a brush and dry it with paper towels. Now pour baking soda on the stain. Mix about ½ cup of peroxide solution in 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. Stir the mixture and apply it to the stain. Now scrub the stain with a brush and dry the area by blotting.
If you are dealing with a tough stain and nothing works, it’s likely time to hire professionals to handle the task. These companies specialize in carpet cleaning and will deliver the required results.
Removing the Urine Smell:
Dealing with urine stains and smell with do-it-yourself methods might work for small areas, but calling the experts is prudent if you have a large-scale problem.
Apply a generous amount of corn-starch to the area and cover the stain for 30 minutes. Dry the area using towels, paper cloth and remove all the water.
Make a mixture of baking soda and water in a bowl and apply the paste to the satin. Now pour vinegar on the stain and let it rest for some time. Rinse the stain and blot it with towels. Pets need constant training to ensure they demonstrate good behaviour. All the methods mentioned above might vary according to their effectiveness. But correcting the behaviour is the ultimate key to success.
