How to Remove Pet Stains from Carpet

If you are not well familiar how to remove pet stains from carpet,  there are a numerous of free tips on Internet that can help you to fix that. The following tips are commonly applied by people who want to get rid of pets stains on a carpet using only household items, such as ammonia, dish-washing detergent and hydrogen peroxide. Of course, if you feel too disgust of the pet stain, you can always call professional carpet cleaners to come in and take care of the stain instead of you. In case, you want to deal with the pet stain on your carpet on your own, here are the steps that will walk you through the process of stain removal.

  1. Use a plastic bag to remove any large pieces of the stain from the carpet. If the excrement has already dried, use the edge of a spoon (probably, you will want to throw away that spoon after cleaning) or a dull knife to scrape off as much of the dried feces as possible. It would be best to run over the spot a couple of times with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner in order to get the pet stain out of the carpet, but don’t bother if you don’t have such a vacuum cleaner at home since you will be able to remove pet stains from carpet successfully even without a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.
  2. To remove the remaining pet stain from your carpet, make a solution of 1 tablespoon of clear ammonia and 2 cups of water. This solution will remove the stain as well as the odour related with the mess. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution over the stained area of the carpet, then soak the moisture up with paper towels or a clean white cotton cloth. Repeat this step several time to get as much of the pet stain as you can.
  3. If any stain remains on the carpet, mix 1 teaspoon of dish-washing detergent with 1 cup of warm water. Apply this solution to the stain using a spray bottle, then gently rub it into the spot using a soft-bristled brush, as advised by cleaning experts. Blot the excess moisture and repeat the step. Continue applying detergent cleaning solution and blotting it up until the stain is gone.
  4. Once the stain is gone, dry the wet spot by blotting repeatedly at it with paper towels or dry clean cloth. Place a fan to blow against the cleaned area in order to speed up the drying process.

If the pet stain cannot be removed with the above method, consider hiring professionals to deal with it for you.
