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  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!

  • 5 star review  Bernard and his team are very professional. They don’t leave the job until you’re satisfied. I had some tough stains to get out and was surprised that they were able to get a lot of it out. I will definitely keep their number handy and use them again in the future!!

  • 5 star review  Dazzle was one of the few places I called looking to have my sofa cleaned. In the end, I chose this company simply because the person over the phone was polite and professional. Aiden was the technician that arrived at my home, and not only did he get the nasty stains out of my sofa, but he gave me cleaning related knowledge that I was unaware of. He was also super kind, polite, and professional. I’ll definitely be sticking with Dazzle for future services!

  • 5 star review  Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂
