Here is an easy home remedy to Remove Dog Urine Stain and Odor from Carpets in Birmingham, AL. This recipe is easy and inexpensive because you probably already have everything you will need in your home already. And, this method really works!
If your dog has peed on your carpet, you already know the outcome. It looks bad and it sticks! Also, it seems Fido keeps going back to that same spot. Well, here are step-by-step instructions for how to get rid of it. First thing to remember is to avoid using ammonia based products to clean dog urine. One of the ingredients in dog urine is ammonia and if you use ammonia you may be encouraging Fido to hike his leg in the same area again. Also remember, your dog's sense of smell is a hundred times better than yours so even if you don’t smell it, he may.
Here are the Steps to get rid of dog urine smell, odor and stains from your carpets and rugs:
If the area is still wet you should first attempt to absorb the dog urine. If you have a wet/dry vacuum use it to suck up as much of the stain as possible. If you don’t have a wet/dry vacuum, use paper towels or clean towels to soak up as much of the dog urine as you possibly can. Lay several layers of towels down and then tread on them. You may have to repeat this several times until no more dog urine can be soaked up.
Mix together a solution of fifty percent white vinegar and fifty percent water. Use a spray bottle to apply the vinegar solution to the carpet. Work the solution into the carpet with a cloth or soft brush (or your fingers) to ensure it penetrates the carpet fibers below. Do not rub it very hard or you could damage your carpet fibers.
Then either use a wet/dry vacuum to extract the spot again or use paper towels to blot up and absorb the vinegar mixture. The vinegar will help to neutralize the ammonia in the dog urine.
When the area has dried or is almost dry, sprinkle a handful of baking soda over the soiled area.
Then, mix half a cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of Dish Soap detergent. Plain liquid dishwashing detergent such as Dawn or Palmolive should be used, preferably one without dye in it. Do not use Detergent that you put in your dishwasher. (Caution: Do not pour Dishwashing liquid directly onto carpet as it could stain the carpet blue or green.)
Put the hydrogen peroxide solution in a spray bottle and spray it on the spot and baking soda. (Caution: Do not use Hydrogen Peroxide that is higher than 3% strength (10 Vol). Stronger strengths may bleach your carpet.)
Then work the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixture well into the carpet with your fingers (put on some rubber gloves) or use a soft cloth or brush.
Allow the area to dry completely. Once the area is thoroughly dry, vacuum up the baking soda and the area. Use a fan or heater to speed up the drying or just let air dry. The baking soda will absorb the odor and urine.
That's all there is to it. Your carpet should smell much better.
