To remove a pet urine stain, dilute the spot using a cloth dampened with water. Then, clean the area with an acid solution consisting of one quart water mixed with one teaspoon white vinegar.
If necessary, you can apply a pet bacteria/enzyme digester according to the directions. You can find these products at any pet store; they effectively counter both the stain and the odor. Even if the stain has disappeared or our human noses can no longer smell anything, a pet will repeatedly return to the same spot if he can still smell his own odor. Here are some other hints:
Be sure to use enough bacteria/enzyme digester to penetrate the carpet and pad.
Keep in mind that digesters work well but slowly. Leave the solution on as long as indicated.
After applying the solution, cover with plastic and step on the spot several times until the area is well saturated.
Keep the plastic on the entire time the digester is working to make sure the spot doesn’t dry out.
If the stain is older, it may be nearly impossible to remove, but try the digester. If the site has seen multiple accidents, the bacteria breaking down the stain may actually create a superalkaline state that interferes with the digester’s intended action. In this case, follow these steps:
After the bacteria digester has been working for about four hours, neutralize the spot by mixing a solution of one cup of vinegar to a gallon of warm water.
Rinse the area with the vinegar solution.
Apply a fresh batch of bacteria/enzyme digester solution.
You might also try buying a hypodermic needle from your local pharmacy and filling it with your favorite perfume or potpourri. You’ll need to inject both the carpet and the pad for it to work. If you still have a problem, have the carpet cleaned by extraction. It may even be necessary to replace the pad underneath.
