How to Remove Pet Stains
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 2:07
ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer, and this is another GMC Trade Secret.
Anyone will tell you that stains on the carpet are almost inevitable when you’re housebreaking a new pet. I’m going to tell you how to deal with the stain so you can keep your carpet and your pets.
First we’re going to deal with liquid pet stains. You might want to wear some gloves for this cleanup. Okay, if your pet has an accident on the carpet, start by soaking up the excess moisture with a light-colored cloth or paper towel.
Next, make a solution with one-quarter teaspoon mild liquid detergent, diluted with a cup of water. Next, blot the area until no more stain transfers to the towel.
Now I’m going to make a solution of two teaspoons of ammonia in a cup of warm water and then blot the area. I’m going to go ahead and cover the stain with some paper towels and then a heavy object over the top of the paper towel to blot up all the moisture. And I’m going to periodically change out that paper towel until all the moisture’s gone. Okay, we got that taken care of.
Beside wet accidents, you also have solid accidents. Now, as with any semi-solid stain, you want to begin by removing whatever you can with a spoon or a knife. Now blot the area with the same ammonia solution you used for the liquid stain, and let it soak for several minutes.
Now you can go ahead and blot out all the excess moisture with a fresh cloth, and then you keep doing that until there’s no more moisture or residue on that piece of cloth.
All right. Now, if household products can’t completely get the stain out, you can resort to carpet foam with specially made enzymes to help penetrate pet stains. And once you’ve taken the stain out, you can erase any lingering odors by sprinkling some baking soda over the area. You can let that dry overnight. Vacuum it up the next day.
Well, good as new. I’m Eric Stromer. That’s your GMC Trade Secret.
