Even if you get your dog trained by the best trainers, they might sometimes accidentally pee on the carpets.
As the carpet fabrics absorb liquid immediately, they will also absorb the dog urine causing a wet or dry stain on the carpets that produces a very unpleasant smell. You should clean the carpets as soon as such incidents occur or come to your notice.
Learn some steps to remove dog urine odor from the carpet and give it a pleasant smell.
For Wet Urine Stains
If the dog urine stain is wet, then act quickly. Use paper towels to soak up the urine. Prepare a solution of equal amounts of white vinegar and water and fill it in a bottle. Spray the prepared solution on the stain because the acidic nature of vinegar neutralizes the bacteria. Blot the stain using a clean cloth and let it dry.
After getting dried, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the stained spot. Baking soda helps in removing the dog’s urine odor. Cover this with a paper towel for around 24 hours. Rinse the carpet with clear water and dry the same using a vacuum cleaner.
For Dry Urine Stains
If the dog urine is dried or you find dull yellow or green color dried stains using the blacklight, then you should prepare a solution of equal amounts of white vinegar and water or 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and warm water and some hydrogen peroxide.
Soak the carpet with any of these solutions, use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub the stain. Then rinse the stain with clear water and blot it until excess moisture is removed. Spread some baking soda to neutralize the foul smell of the dog urine stains.
Dry the areas using the vacuum cleaner because steam cleaners might damage your carpets. You can also purchase pet odor enzymatic cleaners for a pleasant smell.
