How To Treat Pet Accidents On Carpeting Or Upholstery

Pet Urine Accidents Cape Coral | Naples | Fort Myers | Sanibel | Punta Gorda

If you have pets, at some point, you are going to have pet stains on your carpet, mattress or upholstery.

The question remains whether it will be from an accident, illness or dirty paws. For most of us, our biggest concern is getting the smell out as well as the stain removed. Tru-Clean specializes in pet stain and odor removal.

The first step of our process is to locate the contaminated areas by using Xenon lighting. Once the pet stains are identified, we apply live enzymes, allow sufficient dwell time and begin our thoroughly exhaustive deodorizing and cleaning process.

Live enzymes are designed to consume bacteria left behind as a result of urine or feces accidents while eliminating the odor and offensive off-gassing.

Our pet accident service is 100% guaranteed so if after five days you still smell the pet odors, we will come back and re-apply the areas at no charge.

If your pet has an accident, or decides they want to mark an area, you may want to try to tackle this job yourself or at least, preventively until Tru-Clean arrives.

Here are the steps you can take for best results:

First, locate the soiled area. Getting rid of the odor is important so your pet won’t continue to return to his scent. You want to soak up as much of the liquid as possible (you can use a spoon if the accident is feces) using paper towels. Apply pressure with your foot to help get up most of the liquid.

Next, you want to treat the area to remove the odor. You can apply a solution of 1 part WHITE vinegar to 1 part club soda, saturate the area for 10 minutes and then soak up the liquid. Once the area is almost dry, apply baking soda and let sit for about an hour and then vacuum up.

Beware of using the over-the-counter pet stain removal products as many are soap based and just temporarily cover up the smell. The problem with these products is that you will be unable to get out all of the soap thus leaving a residue that attracts dirt and causes stains to reappear.
