The longer cat or dog urine sits in a carpet, the worse the problem becomes. Bacteria build up, and the urine is soaked not only into the carpeting but also into the pad below.
Follow these easy steps to remove not only the pet urine but also the odor that comes with it!
What you will need:
- towels or paper towels
- heavy books/weight
- enzymatic cleaner ( Rug Doctor or any other enzyme cleaner)
- Apply paper towel and weight. Wet towels or paper towels and apply over puddle. Apply something heavy like a book to help absorb (to avoid urine getting on book, cover with plastic wrap). Let sit for 10 minutes. (if spot has been wet for more than 10 minutes, cover a space that is 50% wider as it has likely soaked in to the pad)
- Re-wet the spot with water. Using cold water, pour small amounts just outside perimeter of stain, moving slowly towards center. Leave for about a minute
- Spray an enzymatic cleaner over the area. Enzymatic cleaners help break down proteins from the urine, thus removing the smell. Follow directions on cleaner for time.
- Repeat step one. Follow step one, placing paper towel and weight over enzymatic cleaner. Leave overnight. Remove and visible stain as well as smell should be gone!
