Our furry friends can be the spice in our life, however, sometimes they can test our patience. If you have a pet that consistently has accidents on your carpets, it can be frustrating. Fortunately, as long as you know how to handle the stains, you can prevent the health of your carpets from deteriorating. Let's take a look at some of the basics of removing pet stains that you should know.
The first thing you need to realize is that the quicker you clean up the stain, the less likely it is to seep into the deeper fibers of the carpet. When the stains get to the deeper fibers, you're going to have to call in a professional. They are the only ones who have the right equipment to remove built-up dirt and debris deep within the carpet fibers. Your traditional household vacuum simply can't reach the deep into the carpet.
You should opt to use a cloth or paper towel. Realize that a cloth is likely easier to clean up with as it doesn't fray into small pieces like a paper towel can once it becomes damp. You want to blot up the stain with the cloth. This will help to suck out the liquid part of the pet stains from your carpet. Always remember to start from the outside and work your way in. You don't want to risk spreading the stain even further than it already is.
