Steam Green Carpet Cleaning is here to share a homemade cleaner and deodorizer to help maintain your home and its carpets from those accidents left behind by your pets. Additionally, we will walk you through the steps of proper cleaning methods when it comes to urine stains and odors.

How Do You Get Pet Stains Out of Carpet?

To properly clean pet stain and odors you don’t always need the expensive cleaners found at the market. Sometimes all it takes is some water, vinegar and baking soda. For severe stains you may need to take it up a notch and use some hydrogen peroxide. To begin cleaning pet stains you may also want to have some white paper towels or a white cloth and rubber gloves.
Step 1. When you first notice the stain, and if it is still wet, use a paper towel or cloth and soak up as much of the urine as possible.
Step 2. Next, mix together 1 cup of water with 1 cup of vinegar in a spray bottle. Then spray the cleaner deep into the carpet fiber. You want the vinegar to cover the urine you may need to work the mixture in with your finger tips or with a toothbrush.
Step 3. Once the mixture has had time to soak in, use paper towels or cloth and press down on the stain. Soak up as much of the fluid as possible. You may want to use a shop vac to help extract as much of the moisture as possible and let the area dry.
Step 4. Once the area has had time to dry, sprinkle baking soda on top of the stain and then vacuums it up.
Step 5. For tougher stains, pour the hydrogen peroxide on top of the stain followed then by baking soda. This will create a fizzing or bubbling which helps lift the urine out of the carpet. Give it a few minutes to work and then use paper towel to soak up most of the liquid.
Step 6. Vacuum up the area after the stain has had time to dry to restore the cleaned areas.

How to Make a Homemade Room Deodorizer

It really helps to freshen up a room that was victimized by your pet if you follow the cleaning with a deodorizer. Here is a great carpet recipe to make your own deodorizer. Mix together 3 cups of baking soda with 20 drops of your preferred essential oil. Some great examples are lavender, jasmine, or even vanilla. However, if you have a cat we urge you to use a citrus oil to prevent future accidents. Pour both contents into a bowl and use a fork to mix them together. Once the two are mixed together, put the powder into a jar with a sprinkle lid and lightly sprinkle the powder on the carpet. Make sure to sprinkle it lightly. Let the powder sit on the carpet for 30 minutes then vacuum it up and enjoy the fresh scent.
