If you have carpeting or rugs in your home, then you have likely already confronted an unpleasant truth. Despite your best efforts, something will eventually stain your carpeting or rugs. If you have pets, then urine is one of the most common stain that you’ll need to clean from your rugs and carpeting; though everything from soda to food to dirt and debris can also make a mess of your favorite rugs and nice carpet. If you want to know the essentials of urine removal and stain removal, read on to find out the best urine removal and pet stain removal methods for carpets and rugs.

Removing New Stains Yourself: Step by Step

If the stain is brand new and small, you may be able to remove it yourself using the following steps.
Step One: Blot wet stains
The first step is to carefully blot the area with a clean towel. If you need to begin urine removal, try using clean paper towels which can more easily soak up any remaining urine in the area. Make sure you do this as fast as possible. NEVER rub the stain, wet or dry, as this will only push it further into the rug or carpet.
Step Two: Apply Liquid Dish Washing Detergent Mixture
The next step for stain removal is to make a solution with 1 cup of warm water, 1/4 tsp of liquid dish washing detergent and a teaspoon of white vinegar. Spray the stain directly with this solution and wait for the solution to fully set into the stained area.
Step Three: Rinse and Repeat
Rinse the area with warm water and repeat until you see results.

Old Stains, Stubborn Stains and Excessive Stains: What to Do When You Can’t Remove Stains Yourself

The above steps are only successful for brand new, fresh stains—which means that, if you’re like most people, they probably don’t apply to the stains
on your carpet and rugs. It’s very easy for stains to sit for far too long before you can attempt to remove them, especially if you have children or a busy schedule. Unfortunately, this only increases the difficulty in stain removal. This holds especially true if you have excessive staining, whether this means a singular large stain or multiple stains that have built-up over time.

The best thing to do for urine removal and stain removal in these instances is to contact a professional cleaning company that specializes in carpet cleaning, rug cleaning and general stain removal. A professional company will be able to fully remove the visual staining on your carpets and rugs, while also disinfecting the area so that bacteria or other unwanted substances don’t stick around in the fibers.

Taking Care Of Your Rug

One of the most frequent questions we get from our customers is “How do I keep my rug clean?” The most important thing you can do is to regularly vacuum your rug. A clean rug will not only look great and last longer but will act as an air filter removing dust and pollen from your home’s air. Vacuuming your rug will keep down the dust in your rug but it needs to be done every week, especially if you have thick rugs.

How Does a Professional Clean a Rug

Does your rug need a steam cleaning or deep cleaning? While a rug can bring your room together with an appealing design, they can take beating from foot traffic, pets and stains. Regular vacuuming can remove the dust from the surface, but dust and grit will remain embedded in the fibers. While some stains you can remove yourself, other types of stains such as pet stains and liquid spills can be very difficult without professional help. Some stains removers can even damage the rug by causing the dye to fade.
