home. If left unattended, the urine can saturate the carpet and padding and penetrate the subflooring resulting in an issue that is much harder to address. So, how can you remove the pet urine odor from your carpets?
For small pet accidents, try the 5-step procedure below. If you have larger or many stains, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company. Commercial carpet cleaners have stronger enzyme cleaners and high-power suction that can remove more urine from your carpets than you can remove on your own.
If you are needing to remove a small pet stain, try these simple steps:
How to quickly remove small pet urine stains:
Step 1: Remove any wet urine from the carpet. If the urine dries, it stains the carpet and increases bacteria growth. To best remove the stain, place a layer of several paper towels or an old towel over the wet area of the carpet. Stand on the paper towels so that the cloth absorbs as much of the pet pee as possible.
Step 2: Create a cleaning solution. Create a vinegar cleaning solution consisting of one-part white vinegar to one-part water. Vinegar neutralizes the ammonia smell of urine without fading carpet fibers, making it a good choice for cleaning and protecting your carpet.
Step 3: Apply the cleaning solution to the carpet. Slowly pour the solution on the stained area of the carpet. The solution needs to reach the lower fibers in the carpet to completely neutralize the area.
Step 4: Let the solution dwell in the carpet and remove liquid. After allowing the carpet to absorb the solution for 15 minutes, use a layer of paper towels or an old towel to soak up the liquid.
Step 5: Apply baking soda. Once the carpet is almost dry, sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers overnight, then vacuum the area several times to remove the baking soda.
For multiple spots or recurring issues, turn to a carpet steam cleaner for help.

Regularly scheduled pressure washings will prevent grime and mildew from breaking down your home’s exterior, causing you to worry less about having to replace rotted wood, chipped paint and premature aging of your home. A professional pressure washing before you paint will also help your new paint job last much longer than if you painted over dirty siding or brick.

While you can rent or purchase your own residential pressure washer, keep in mind that is expensive, time consuming and in some cases dangerous if you aren’t familiar with how to work one. Dangers include using too much pressure or the wrong nozzle causing wrecked surfaces, broken windows and injuries to others or yourself. In addition, residential pressure washers are do not have the same pressure that our commercial units can provide and do not use hot water which increases the cleaning power exponentially.
