Having a pet is very rewarding. The unconditional love, affection, and devotion that your pets show you makes it all worth it. However, those days when you come home to that unexpected wet spot on your carpet, it is probably questionable! While we always love our four-legged family member, that pet accident can cause a stain that can make any pet lover cringe. What should you do when your cute little Fido has an accident?
Here are some spotting directions to help:
Blot up a much of the urine as possible. Do not scrub. When you think you have as much of it up as possible, blot the area again with a dry towel.
Next, apply a low-residue carpet spot remover, let sit for 60 seconds and again blot the spot.
Finally, fold a dry towel, place over the spot and apply at least 10 pounds of weight (fold the towel so it has several layers). Let is sit overnight. When you remove the towel, fluff the carpet up and allow to dry. If the spot returns after a few days, repeat the last two steps.
After the carpet dries, stick your nose down to the carpet and give it a good whiff. Any odor? If so, be very careful what you use. Most store-bought deodorizers only work in mild odor situations. Don’t over-use them, you may do more harm than good.
