Removing Pet Urine from Carpet

April 5, 2011

Pets are adorable and once you have them, it’s near impossible to get rid of them no matter how inconvenient they can become.  Most can tolerate the additional cost of pet food and the additional time necessary to care for pets.  However, it can be a drag to have them wreaking havoc on your furnishings or having accidents on the floor or carpet.  No matter how well they are toilet-trained, it is almost certain there may be times they will not be able to hold it and ruin your carpet.  And as most pet owners are aware of, once they have staked a claim on a certain spot on the carpet, it becomes their territory where they will likely get used to relieving themselves on the very same spot.

Some people say it is almost impossible to get rid of pet urine in your carpet on your own.  Most would suggest replacement of the carpet padding before getting a professional cleaner to remove any traces of the urine.  Nevertheless, there may still be home remedies that can work together with diligent cleaning.

What you can use to remove the odor of pet urine from your carpet can be found on your cupboard.  They are the same materials often used to get rid of smells in other parts of the home.  First thing you need is a vinegar solution of 1 part white vinegar and 4 parts water and place this in a spray bottle.    Saturate the spot on your carpet where your pet had the accident and make sure it goes through the padding or cushion.  Let the solution sit for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Then blot the area with paper towels and try to get out as much as you can from the carpet.  Let it air dry.

Once the vinegar solution has dried, pour baking soda on the spot and let it sit an hour.  This will remove the whatever remaining odor is left and the vinegar on your carpet.
