If you have one or more pets at home, then they are sure to have had accidents on your carpet and upholstery. When this happens, you need to act fast to ensure that the carpet or upholstery does not stain and that the odor is completely removed. This is essential to keep your home clean, protect your carpets and upholstery and most importantly prevent your pet from developing a habit of using that spot again, as it has now been marked.
When left alone they tend to urine .The urine then seeps below the carpet inside the padding and finally to the floor.
In most instances, pet stains and odor can be professionally removed using a specialized surface treatment, steam cleaning and deodorizing. If you see it happen, blot the area with paper towels. You may even be able to use a wet/dry vac to extract the urine. Then gently blot with a damp clean cloth, followed by a clean dry cloth or old towel to remove most of the urine. You will still need a professional carpet cleaner to follow up with a urine treatment to kill bacteria and remove odor. However, by removing most of the urine you will help prevent pet stains. This method is only successful if the pet stain has not soaked through to the underlay and floor beneath. Pet urine when left untreated forms salt-like crystals. When these crystals become damp they release odor. This is why sometimes the smell seems stronger after carpet steam cleaning.
