Removing Urine Stains & Odors From Carpets
A couple of years ago, an acquaintance of ours adopted a pup from a local shelter. After two days, she was posting desperate pleas for advice. Her newly adopted pup was peeing on the floor despite frequent trips outside. She was in a state of panic. Most of the rooms in her home are carpeted. Although she had caught a few pee spots before they dried, she knew there were more. Several rooms spelled of urine.
Most of us who have fur-kids can relate. Pups have accidents. It's inevitable. When we catch our fur-kids in the act, cleanup is relatively easy. However, on the other end of the stick, if it sits, not so much. The longer it soaks in...well, you know where I'm going with this.
What do you do? It all depends. Did the accident just happen? What areas are soiled? Is your pup repeatedly peeing in one area? Has the urine soaked in? Is it dried?
To help you out, we've searched the web for some tried and true tips for cleaning urine stains and getting rid of the smell from carpets.
