San Diego Carpet Cleaner: What to do when my pet has an accident!

The first thing you need to do if your pet has had an accident is not to panic. There are effective steps you can take yourself if your pet has vomited, defecated or peed on your carpet. This article will take you step by step in each scenario:


  • First you will want to soak up as much of the pee as possible, with either a towel or paper towel.
  • Once that has been accomplished you will want to take a damp clean towel and put it over the affected area. Then put something heavy on top. This will cause the urine to absorb up in to the towel. You will want to leave this for about 24 hrs.
  • At this point the situation should be well in hand. However if you would like you can blot the affected area with our spotter treatment. Never rubbing it in to the carpet.


  • As soon as possible you will want to pick up and dispose of any solid pieces.
  • Next you will want to soak up any liquid with a paper towel.
  • Next you will want to treat the spot much like you would an area that has been peed on. Placing a damp towel with something heavy on it to soak up what is in the carpet.
  • In some cases, stomach acids will cause a permanent discoloration in the carpet. If that is the case definitely give us a call and we will see if anything can be done.

Fecal matter:

  • Much like with vomit you want to pick up as much or all of the solid debris as possible without rubbing it in to the carpet.
  • If part of it is more wet and does stick to the carpet wait for it to dry, then carefully scape it off with either  a putty knife or spatula.
  • Then go ahead and take our spotter treatment and blot at the affected area. Never rub it in to the carpet.

The main point to keep in mind in any scenario is to avoid rubbing anything in to the carpet. This can not only damage carpet fibers, but also cause whatever it is you are trying to get out get in deeper. If you have any further question please feel free to contact us at 619-275-5555.
