Help! My dog pooped on the carpet!

Uh oh! Dog pooped on the carpet? It happens to the best of us, especially when it comes to introducing a new dog to your home. Puppy training isn’t easy. There are lots of little messes that come along the way! Thankfully, Dazzle CC is here to help. Read below for our easy how-to guide on getting those stains out of your precious carpets. 

Step one: act QUICKLY if your dog pooped on the carpet! 

There’s no time to waste. The longer you allow the mess to sit, the more likely it is that you aren’t going to be able to get rid of the stain. Try to pick up and dispose of as much of the waste as possible to reduce the amount that sinks into the carpet. 

Step two: get rid of the excess!

Once the primary mess has been dealt with, it’s time to use a moist paper towel or a baby wipe to scrape up as much as you can from the carpet fibers. 

Step three: let’s start cleaning!

Go ahead and combine a solution of two cups cold water, one tablespoon of liquid non-bleach dish soap and one tablespoon white vinegar. Be sure to double-check that there’s no bleach in the dish soap to avoid lightening your carpets! 

Step four: BLOT, don’t rub!

Spray or pour a small amount of your homemade cleaning solution directly onto the stain. BLOT, don’t rub, at the stain until the cleaning liquid is absorbed. Repeat until you can no longer see the stain. Be patient! This could take a lot of time and effort. Be sure not to rub at the area, as this could actually spread the feces further and make the stain even worse. Pro tip: use old rags or torn up clothing you no longer wish to keep so that you can simply toss them out once finished. 

Step five: almost done!

Once the stain has disappeared, spray or pour a small amount of cold water onto the area. Blot it up with a new cloth to remove any excess cleaning solution from your carpet and carpet pad.

Step 6: the waiting game!

Allow the carpet to dry, and once it has, sprinkle baking soda onto the affected area. Let the baking soda sit for ten minutes before vacuuming the carpet. This will help to eliminate any possible odor. 

And that’s it! You’re all done. Sit back and admire your hard work, unless…

Dog poop stain still kicking around? Time to call in the pros!

Sometimes, there’s only so much that can be done. If you’ve used all of the steps listed above and you’re STILL struggling with carpet stains, simply contact Dazzle CC today. You can look at our Instagram as well for more handy tips and tricks! Let us take care of the dirty work for you.

  • 5 star review  I recently had Dazzle clean my parents carpet after my dogs had multiple accidents in their home. They did an amazing job removing the pet stains and their customer service skills went beyond my expectations. They were extremely knowledgeable about carpets and area rugs, and at they end of their service, they gave my mother a sachet filled with cleaning and stain removing goodies to help maintain the wonderful job they did cleaning their carpets. I highly recommended going with Dazzle, if they can clean the mess my dogs made on my parents white carpets, they can clean anything.

  • 5 star review  My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 5 star review  I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.
