How to Clean Urine from a Dog Bed Without a Removable Cover in Calabasas, CA

Man’s best friend is an extension of the family. Often spoiled with treats and toys, our furry kids are a pleasure. But just like other kids, they still contribute to messes in the home. Not depriving them of their comfort, the dog’s bed is often placed in a room where everyone hangs out in sad attempts to keep them up off the couch. But since these beds are on top of the floor, without cleaning the dog’s bed periodically, it can contribute to negative impacts on the flooring in addition to poor health and filthier conditions. Below, we at Steam Green Carpet Cleaning have put together a list of a method on how to clean the dog’s bed.

How to Clean or Wash a Dog Bed

1) Begin by vacuuming the surface with the vacuum’s hose and all the handy attachments to extract the dirt, debris, and dog hair. You can follow up with a lint roller to pick up the stubborn hair/fur embedded in the dog bed’s fibers for more efficient removal.
2) After the vacuuming is complete, unzip the exterior fabric cover, if applicable, and run it through the wash machine if it is washing machine safe; follow the manufacturer’s directions on washing machine specifics. If there are no instructions, prepare the washing machine by turning the setting to a large load, with cold water, and add the detergent safe for pets. Avoid adding other fabric or clothing in the same load. Repeat the wash cycle if the bed is especially dirty.
3) Follow the freshly laundered dog bed liner in the dryer cycle. If it is safe for pets add a minimum of one dryer sheet. The dryer sheets minimize the pet hair/fur from building up as well as greatly reducing the static electricity. Dry on a low temperature setting for 20 minutes to remove hair and wrinkles and excess moisture and allow the cover to air dry the remainder of the time to avoid any shrinkage.
4) According to the label’s directions, wash the interior bed foam, pillow, or cushion. If the label does not detail any directions continue reading. Fill the tub with cool or lukewarm water and add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/8 cup of laundry detergent if the foam or pillow bed is washable, and submerge it in the tub. Work the soap in the foam with your hands; concentrate more efforts on any visible stains. Let the foam/pillow soak for approximately 15 minutes and then drain the water. After the bulk of the water is drained, squeeze the remainder of the water out of the pad. To rinse the bed, refill the tub with cool, clear water and submerge the foam/pillow, and work the soapy residue out of the pad. Once again, drain the water and squeeze the excess water from the foam/padding. For optimal results in drying and freshness, let the pad air dry outside if possible.
5) Clean the floor before replacing the freshly cleaned dog bed.
