Removing Pet Stains & Odors
You know how it goes: The minute you turn your back, your pet decides that your new carpet is the perfect place to relieve himself. You clean, but you can't get rid of that smell. What can you do?

To Clean Washable Items
  • Machine wash as usual, adding a one-pound box of baking soda to your regular detergent. Air the items for best results.
  • If your pet urinates or defecates on the sheets or blankets on a bed, cover the bed with a vinyl, flannel backed tablecloth when you begin the retraining period.

To Clean Carpeted Areas and Upholstery
  • For new stains,those that are still wet, soak up as much of the urine as possible with a combination of newspaper and paper towels.
  • The more fresh urine you remove before it dries, the easier it will be to remove the odor
  • Place a thick layer of newspaper on the wet spot, cover with a paper towel and another thick layer of newspaper. Stand on this padding for about a minute. Remove the padding and repeat the process until the area is barely damp

For Stains That Have Already Set
  • To remove all traces of heavy stains in carpeting, consider renting an extractor or wet vac
  • When using these machines or cleaners please follow the instructions carefully. Don't use any chemicals with these machines as they work more effectively with plain water
  • Once the area is clean, use a high-quality pet odor neutralizer; many are available at pet supply stores


Did You Know...
Cats are wonderful animals who are very clever, kind, and generous. However, you may have an issue when it comes to the litter box. You see, a cat will go where he or she please. The same way a puppy or dog might. Start training your cat for the litter box asap. Have a little tray or box around and fill it with cat litter. After about an hour or 45 minutes from the time your cat has eaten. Lift him or her into the box and wait until he or she goes. This will tell the cat that this is the place he or she needs to use the bathroom.The type of litter you buy is also very important. You see, some litter may upset the cat or cause it to get sick. Try natural and scented litter. They tend to work the best.
