What do you do if your dog of cat has an accident?
Whether you are in the midst of potty training or it’s just a pure accident we’ve all experienced the panic or “how do I get the urine out of the carpet?” It can be one of the worst odors, one that you definitely do not want permeating throughout the house. So here are two steps to take as soon as you are aware of the urine spot in your carpet.
- Take a cloth towel and a soak up as much of the urine as possible. Do not rub the carpet fibers, but rather blot. You want to pull up the urine from your carpet, keeping as little as possible from getting in to the backing of your carpet or the pad.
- Then you will take a damp towel (wet but not soaking) and place it on the urine spot. You will then want to place something heavy on top of it to keep it in place for 24 hours. This will keep the urine from drying in to the carpet fibers.
- NOTE: You may want to use our spotter bottle we offer to our clients, but it would not but helpful in this case. In fact it would just add to the urine getting in to the carpet backing.
If unfortunately there is an odor that remains you’ll want to give us a call, we may have to do a special odor treatment. Especially if it is cart urine, as it has a higher level of ammonia. However if you do these two steps it shouldn’t have to get to that!
