If you have little children and pets in your home, you are probably familiar with carpet stains and odour from urine. Urine stains are a bit difficult to remove with only soap and water because they stick more and make the carpet smell. If the stains are not attended to immediately it can lead to the formation of molds and bacterial accumulation. The quickest way to manage these stains is to use a clean towel to wipe the urine. Then use dishwashing detergents for further cleaning. Laundry detergents are not preferred because they may contain bleaching agents that may affect your carpet fabric and color. You can dry the spot with a vacuum cleaner.
Carpet odour is possible because of the fiber material which attracts and store smell. Since the carpet traps dust, it can trap smell and moisture which can make your house have a dampening odour. Carpet odour has become a common problem among the majority of the homeowners. Sources of carpet odour include unattended stains, molds, dampness, dirt, food and drink spills, and dust accumulation. All these are elements that can be removed during carpet cleaning and odour removal treatment.
Tips to Carpet Urine Stain and Odour Removal
Spray Carpet Odour Treatment
If the baking soda is not effective, you can purchase a deep treatment and apply it on your carpet. It comes with an application manual to guide you through. When doing this, consider wearing gloves throughout the process. The chemicals can be irritant on your skin. Use a spraying bottle to spray the carpet with the treatment. The importance of spraying can be to gain a uniform layer and prevent spillage. Then allow the treatment to stay on the carpet for a day then vacuum it to remove any residues.
Clean Fresh Stains
Always consider cleaning fresh stains as soon as you notice them. This is because unattended stains end up causing a bad smell. Once you clean the stains, your carpet remains clean and fresh. You need to have solutions that can quickly treat the carpet and maintain them smelling nice. One of the easy solutions is baking soda and water. You can sprinkle the solution on your carpet to get rid of any trapped odour. You can add Borax to the baking soda mix for better results. It is known for odour elimination.
It is highly recommendable to spray the baking soda mixture at night and let it sit until morning. This will allow you to keep pets and children away so that they do not get in touch with the solution. Then in the morning, you can vacuum the mixture and your carpet will stay fresh with no odour.
Use Vinegar or Ammonia
Do not mix these two chemicals. Take a bowl and fill it with ammonia or vinegar and leave it in the room with the carpet overnight. This may not adequately remove the smell but it will help you manage the odour at a minimal expense. Always remember to keep away pets and children because they can drink the solutions.
You can distill vinegar in a steam cleaner (if you have one). Vinegar is an effective cleaner because it is acidic, there it can get rid of bacteria that cause the carpet to smell.
