If there are pets in the home, no matter how well they’re trained, accidents are bound to happen at some point in time. That’s where Chem-Dry can help—with professional pet odor removal in Lafayette.
Cleaning up after spills, stains, and messes can feel like a daunting, never-ending task. But we’re here to help make it a breeze with our professional method! That’s why professional pet odor removal on a routine basis is so important.
And in between our visits, you can keep pet stains and odors at bay with a few simple tips and tricks. Here are three methods that are effective when it comes to pet odor and stain removal from carpet.
#1 – Do-It-Yourself Solutions
It can be convenient to have a few homemade cleaning solutions on hand for use when you need them. As with any cleaning solution, be sure to test a small area on your carpet first. If the solution discolors your carpet fibers, don’t use it.
Then, to start, scoop up or blot away as much of the stain as possible. This allows the cleaning solution to get right to the source of your carpet fibers. Apply the cleaning solution a little bit at a time and repeat the process as needed. As a pro tip, don’t pour too much cleaning solution on the stain up front.
Some of our go-to DIY cleaning solutions are to treat it with vinegar first, then sprinkle baking soda on top and let it sit overnight. Dishwashing detergent mixed with warm water also does wonders. If you do use ammonia or hydrogen peroxide on the stain, be sure to dilute it in water first.
#2 – Have A Store-Bought Cleaner On Hand
If do-it-yourself cleaners aren’t for you, that’s ok! There are plenty of pet-safe formulas on the market that are effective at removing pet odors and stains and are non-toxic and safe for pets, too.
After blotting up the stain, use your favorite pet-friendly stain remover. Some popular favorites are OxiClean, Resolve, or Spot Shot. Again, use a small amount at a time and repeat as needed.
#3 – Professional Pet Odor Removal
Even when you do your best, pet odors can remain trapped deep in carpet fibers, backing, padding, and hard floor unless removed by a professional. Chem-Dry can help extract even the most stubborn odor crystals with our revolutionary approach to pet odor removal in Lafayette.
