Pet Stain Tips

Act Promptly! New stains are easier to remove then old stains.

Step 1

Scrape up any solids with a spoon or spatula first. Using a thick layer of plain white paper towel, blot up as much of the liquid as possible by applying pressure over the stain until no more moisture will transfer on to the paper towel.

Step 2

Apply a small amount of a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar to the spot and gently work the solution into the fibers. Allow a few minutes to dwell. Repeat step 1.

Note: always pretest solutions in an inconspicuous area.

Step 3

Apply a small amount of fresh warm water onto the spot and blot until dry.

Step 4

Call a professional.

If you do not have success, call a professional before you do any permanent damage to you carpet. Trained, certified professionals can often remove stains that seem like they are in your carpets, upholstery or area rugs for good.


A great tool to use is a wet/dry vac or a small carpet spot removal machine. Extract the urine out of the carpet, apply a small amount of a 50/50 water and white vinegar mixture, let it dwell for a few minutes; extract the solution from the carpet. Apply a small amount of fresh warm water to the spot and extract it out to rinse the carpet. Blot until dry using plain white paper towel.

What not to do!

– Do not rub or scrub
– Do not use laundry detergents or any other product which is not intended for use on carpet.
