We’ve all been there – as much as we love our furry friends, there’s no doubting the fact that they come with more than their fair share of messes. Whether it’s muddy paw prints being tracked inside onto your area rug after a rain-soaked day at the park, or the case of a nervous puppy being introduced to the household for the first time, keeping your carpets clean in a pet-friendly home can seem like a bit of an uphill battle!

Thankfully, there are several ways to keep your home fresh and clean while also accommodating for your four-legged pals. Let Dazzle CC show you how!

Getting pet urine out of carpets

Forget about appearances for a second – puppy pee is one of the most unpleasant scents in existence, and it takes more than a little bit of air freshener to cover it up, let alone get rid of it. If your pet has an accident on the carpet, the best thing that you can do is act quickly to avoid the moisture sinking even deeper into the fibers.

Then, follow these simple steps to take care of business:

  1. Place a clean, dry rag on top of the affected area to absorb as much of the urine as possible – this’ll stop it from soaking further into the carpet. Dab gently – but don’t rub! – to blot the urine into the rag.
  2. It’s time to raid your kitchen! Grab some baking soda, and sprinkle it lightly on top of the stain. Baking soda helps to neutralize unpleasant odors; it’ll also further absorb the puppy pee!
  3. Mix together a solution of 50% water and 50% white vinegar, and spray liberally onto the carpet. Vinegar helps to cancel out the ammonia in pet urine; it’ll also work as a natural sanitizer while inhibiting new bacteria growth. Let the vinegar solution sit for five to ten minutes.
  4. Now is the time to scrub! Work at the stain with a clean, damp cloth and go ahead and work the baking soda, water, and vinegar into the fibers of the carpet.
  5. And that’s all there is to it! Allow the carpet to dry fully, and vacuum afterward – there should be no trace remaining of vinegar or pet urine, signifying a job well done.

What about…the other stuff?

It’s not much fun to talk about, but if you’re a pet owner, then you’re familiar with number two as much as you are number one. Cleaning up the stains left behind by pet feces might seem like an impossible task, but there are ways to tackle it at home. Like with all spills and messes, we recommend tending to them as soon as possible.

Here is an easy guide to cleaning up the extra dirty pet stains on your carpet:

  1. Put on a pair of gloves, and start scraping any excess feces out of the fibers of your carpet. If it helps, you can use a butter knife, and even a baby wipe to help clean the area as much as you can.
  2. Mix a cleaning solution of two cups cool water, one tablespoon of liquid non-bleach dish soap and one tablespoon white vinegar. You definitely want to ensure that your dish soap is bleach free to avoid discolouring your carpet! If you’re unsure, go ahead and patch test a small, inconspicuous section of your carpet to avoid potentially damaging the visible or high-traffic areas.
  3. Spray a light amount of your cleaning solution onto the stain, and blot at the stain until the solution is fully absorbed before repeating the process. You’ll need to be patient, and careful not to rub the feces further into the fibers of your carpet. You’ll also want to avoid over-saturating the carpet with your cleaning solution – use a little bit at a time and go slow.
  4. Once you notice that the stain has lightened and almost entirely disappeared, spray the area with a small amount of cold water. Then, you’ll use a clean cloth to blot up any remaining moisture from the cleaning solution or the water we just applied.
  5. Allow the area to dry, and then sprinkle it with baking soda before giving it a good vacuum.

Stains – or smells – still lingering?

Unfortunately, there’s only so much that can be done at home when it comes to getting pet stains and odors out of your carpets, especially if the stain was left to sit for longer than you meant for it to. If you’ve given the tips listed above a good try, but you’re still left frustrated by lingering odors and unsightly stains, then it’s definitely best to call in the pros at Dazzle CC. Our technicians specialize in pet stains and odor removal, and on top of being incredibly effective and eco-friendly, all of our cleaning products and methods are safe for animals of all shapes, size, and levels of sass!

  • From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 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.
