Cleaning urine stains from Carpet
If you have small children at home, or a few family pets, chances are you’re familiar with accidental carpet stains. From dirt, to mud, to punch, to ink, your carpet is exposed to all kinds of substances on a daily basis.
One of the tougher stains you may have to tackle is urine. You can go about removing urine stains from carpet in a variety of ways. Below, COIT will take you through each method, step-by-step.
Remember to always do a spot removal test on a portion of carpet or upholstery that is normally not visible.
How to Get Urine Stains Out of Carpet
This first approach to get urine stains out of carpet involves liquid dishwashing detergent.
- Before doing anything else, if the area is still wet, be sure to blot the urine stain with a clean towel. You can also use paper towels to help absorb any remaining urine. To prevent further absorption, the faster you do this, the better.
- If you have access to any kind of shop-vac, use it to extract any remaining urine. If you don’t have this tool, proceed to the next step.
- Take one-quarter teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent and mix it with one cup of warm water. Be sure to specifically use this kind, not laundry detergent or dish soap; these may contain bleach or lanolin.
- If you have a spray bottle, pour the solution into it. Spray the urine stain, aiming directly onto the carpet.
- If you can extract the solution from the carpet using a shop-vac, this is a good next step. Otherwise, you can use a cotton cloth or paper towels after the solution has set into the stain.
- After rinsing the area with warm water, repeat steps 1-5, as long as you’re seeing the urine stain gradually fade.
- Last, take two tablespoons of ammonia and mix into a cup of water. Rinse and repeat until the stain has disappeared.
How to Remove Dog Urine from Carpet
Though we all love our cats and dogs, we certainly don’t love the stains they leave when they have an accident, right? Luckily, there are relatively quick ways to remove dog urine from carpet.
If you’ve been out for a few hours, chances are that Fido’s urine stain may have been sitting for a while. As soon as you discover it, it’s important to clean it right away. If you wait too long, bacteria can start to grow in the affected area, which leads to unpleasant odors.
Here’s one way to remove dog urine from carpet:
- Soak up the urine stain using paper towels or a cotton cloth. Press firmly into the stain using an old shoe or something disposable. This will help absorb as much urine as possible from the carpet.
- Using white vinegar and water, mix a solution in a bowl (50% vinegar, 50% water). You’ll want to mix enough of the solution so that it can reach deep down into the carpet’s fibers.
- Pour the solution onto the urine stain. Using a scrubbing brush, work all of it deeply into the carpet, scrubbing vigorously. The vinegar should help to neutralize the ammonia in the urine.
- Blot the urine stain using a paper towel, pressing firmly into it.
- When that section of the carpet is dry, take one to two handfuls of baking soda (depending on the size of the urine stain) and sprinkle it onto the stain.
- Mix one-half cup of three percent hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and apply to the stain. You can use the scrubbing brush again to thoroughly clean the carpet.
- Once dry, vacuum the area.
