5 Steps to Thoroughly Removing Pet Stains and Odors From Your Carpet

Every pet owner knows the joy and pain that comes with raising a pet. Our lovely companions can accidentally leave behind embarrassing stains and undesirable odors. Instead of leaving stains and odors to become a part of your decor, let’s discuss a few ways you can thoroughly remove any pet stain from your carpets. 

  1. Clean the mess as soon as possible. 

This isn’t always possible, of course, but the best thing to do is clean up messes straight away. The sooner you get to it, the less likely there is to be a stain or lingering odor. 

  1. After you’ve picked up any solid mess that’s on the carpet, it’s time to inspect the damage. If there is any liquid remaining, soak up as much liquid as you possibly can with towels or paper towels. Soak up liquid by applying pressure to the stain. Make sure to avoid rubbing the spot so that you don’t spread it around the carpet more. 
  2. Next, apply a cleaning solution that is safe for carpets, people, and pets. Spraying a small amount of vinegar works best. The scent is strong, but stay tuned, we’ll come back to that. Applying vinegar also removes enzymes that cause animals to return to the same place to… ‘have accidents.’ Let the vinegar soak in for a few minutes. Then soak as much of it up as you can with a towel. 
  3. Next, sprinkle baking soda over the spot. This works to pull out any remaining dampness and odors— from the mess and from the vinegar. Let the baking soda sit for several minutes while it soaks up any remaining liquid. 
  4. Thoroughly vacuum the baking soda, and you’re all done!

Best Qualified Cleaning’s carpet cleaning services are the best way to thoroughly clean your carpet. Deep cleaning uses a specialized technique to fully remove dirt, stains, odors, and allergens that can get trapped in the fibers of your carpet. Grime and allergens that stay in your carpets can make the air in your home less clean, have an odor, and even cause you and your family to be sick. Having your carpets deep cleaned will remove everything that might be trapped in the carpets, giving you a cleaner and healthier home. 

Deep Cleaning Makes Your Carpets Last Longer

Carpets take a lot of wear and tear, we do walk all over them, after all. As we discussed earlier, it’s common for dirt and other grime to get trapped in the fibers of your carpets that vacuums can’t fully remove. If left untreated, the dirt and grime can cause the fibers of your carpets to begin breaking down. Deep cleaning your carpets helps strengthen the fibers so that they can hold up to the wear and tear they are subject to each day. 

Having your carpets regularly deep cleaned can lead to a healthier home and longer lasting carpets that look great. If you are ready to have your carpets deep cleaned, contact Best Qualified Cleaning today. 

Three Techniques For Removing Stains From Your Carpet

We’ve all spilled coffee, tracked in mud, or dropped our favorite dinner on our carpets before. Knowing how to remove these hard to clean stains can be a challenge for most of us. That’s because cleaning techniques sometimes depend on what caused the stain, so what works for some stains won’t work for other stains. Let’s review the best ways to clean up the most common types of stains that homeowners struggle with. These techniques utilize items you already have in your home that are completely safe to use around pets and children. 

Items you’ll need:

– Towels, napkins, or paper towels

– Cold water

– Distilled White Vinegar 

– Baking Soda

– Vacuum Cleaner 

Removing Pet Stains from Your Carpet

The best way to remove or prevent pet stains from your carpet is to clean your carpet as soon as possible. Remove any debris from your carpets, and blot up any remaining urine or liquids as much as possible. Since pets can be sneaky, it isn’t always possible to get to the stain before it dries, so in that case, the first step is to moisten anything that has dried on your carpet fibers with some water and then blot. Next, spray a mixture of distilled white vinegar and water on the area. This will work to neutralize odors and remove stains at the same time. For pet stains, it is important to completely remove the odor so your pet doesn’t continue to relieve himself in the same area. 

How to Remove Red Wine Stain From Carpet

Red wine is one of the hardest stains to remove from carpets. As with most stains, you will begin by blotting up as much of the spill as you possibly can. Each time a towel or napkin becomes saturated, switch it with a new one, this might mean you go through several towels, but this is important. If you continue blotting with a saturated towel, you are likely to spread the stain and make it worse. Next, apply baking soda to the area and gently rub it into the stain. The baking soda will begin to absorb more of the wine. Vacuum up the baking soda and repeat until there is no stain. 

Remove Mud From Carpets 

Mud is one of the few things that you should let dry before you try cleaning it up. Once mud dries, it is easy to vacuum up. Some mud gets lodged deep within your carpet fibers, however, so in this case, after vacuuming, you will want to flush the stain with cold water and blot it up with a dry towel or napkin.
