If your cat, dog, or any animal you have pees on your carpets, removing the urine stain must be done immediately because not only will it stink, but it will most certainly leave a stain! Cat urine is the worst—its smell is very potent, and if you neglect to clean it up, the smell will linger for a while!
Removing a pet stain in your carpet works the best if you clean it up immediately! This way there will be less time for the urine to sink into the carpet causing permanent stains or damage to your carpet.
Immediately after noticing the stain and urine you should attempt to remove as much liquid and solids as possible with paper towels. Also, try not to spread the stain; you should work carefully from the edge to the center. You should take note that it is vital to not use any cleaner that has ammonia in it because most animals have a very strong sense of smell. Why is this important? Your pets may smell the ammonia (it smells like urine) and this could cause it to pee in the same vicinity all over again!
If you have a stain that has been soaking in your carpet for a few hours, these ones can be, and often are, incredibly hard to clean. However, white vinegar can be used to clean stains that have been lingering Also, carpets that have stain resistant finishes will give you more time to blot up the stain before it completely soaks into the carpet. However, don’t “over-wet” your carpet with water when you clean, use club soda (if you have it) for cleaning up the mess as quickly as possible (if it has been sitting.)
