One big bummer of being a pet owner is coming home from work or waking up in the morning and finding a surprise on the floor from your pet. We love our pets, but sometimes accidents just happen, and if they happen to happen on your carpet there are some steps you should take to help maintain the look of your carpet.
Many customers frequently ask us how to treat a pet stain. The first step is to remove any big parts of the accident, then immediately blot (dry a wet surface or substance using an absorbent material) the area with a dry rag or paper towel. During this process, make sure to constantly turn the rag or towel over to the dry side of it. After you blot the spot as dry as you can, wet a clean rag with warm water an blot vigorously.
Do not scrub the carpet, if you scrub your carpet this could damage your carpet. Another option besides warm water would be club soda. Once you have completed the blotting, put white vinegar in a spray bottle and mist the affected area. The white vinegar is a way to neutralize the acids, it is not to be used as a cleaning solution.
