by racheal

Buying a new home is always exciting. Once you have moved in you feel refreshed knowing your carpets are new and clean, there are no marks on your freshly painted walls, and everything is just perfect. BUT wait…. Rex your pet dog just ruined all that fresh felling because he just marked his territory on your new carpet! Animals’ lovers know that animals have accidents and they can make a mess of your carpet. Being able to handle these unpleasant situations is very important in keeping your new home neat and tidy.  Do not get yourself all worked up when an accident occurs of course, here are simple to follow tips for removing pet stains from your new carpet.

Removing Pet Stains From Your New Carpet

• Start by blotting the area with a white cloth or towel to get the liquid up off of the carpet. 

• Once you have most of the moister lifted out of the carpet, get warm water in a bucket and work from the outside in as you gently massage the water into the area.

• Once you have completed, take another clean, white towel and begin blotting again to dry the area.

• Mixing half water and half vinegar and placing this on the stain will help as well.  You will massage the water and vinegar into the carpet and clean it up just like you would with the warm water.

If you catch the pet stains early you will be able to remove it without any problems.  Make sure you do not use any harsh treatments or cleaning products in the middle of the room until you have had an opportunity to test it in a discrete location, like under your couch or in a corner, just in case it causes damage to your new carpet.

Try purchasing a heavy duty pet deodorizer from your local pet store. These can be a pricey, but worth the money to gain back a fresh clean smelling home.
