Help! My dog pooped on the carpet!

by Sep 11, 2019Cleaning Tips0 comments

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.

  • Dazzle Carpet Cleaning provided excellent service at very competitive prices. The technician they sent, Aidan, was punctual, professional and pleasant. He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.

  • I called on Monday to have my carpets cleaned. I was given an appointment for Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. 11:15 my buzzer went. A very nice young man ( Aiden ) came to my door. I was very impressed with him the moment he came in the door. He told me where he was going to start and finish. I had some very bad stains and he was able to get them all out. The price quoted to me was spot on, there were no hidden fees. You don't need to look any further just book now with Dazzle. Rita Robinson

  • I noticed the Dazzle Carpet Cleaning van at my neighbours and gave them a call to see if they could clean my place too. Thankfully Bernard was able to make a switch and fit me in! Soon after, Aidan came to my door to assess what needed to be cleaned and I could see that he was enthusiastic about stain removal! Aidan is friendly and professional and did a great job carefully moving furniture around. He thoroughly cleaned my large sectional sofa, the living room carpet and even got the blueberry stain out of my kitchen chair! I highly recommend Aidan as he clearly has confidence in his own skills and demonstrates pride in his work. I am very happy with the results!
