How to Clean Dog Pee from the Carpet

Pee and poop accidents are one of every pet parent's biggest nightmares (don't even get us started on the number of pee accidents in the puppy phase!). As pet parents, we do our best to train our furry friends to ensure they pee where they have to during their potty breaks - but it doesn't always help! Sometimes, our dogs peep inside our homes on the carpet. And that's where the nightmare starts.
Cleaning up the mess can be a hassle, and replacing the carpet can be expensive. So, why not learn how to clean dog pee from the carpet instead? Here are some simple steps to help you get rid of the mess and odour without having to replace the carpet.

1. Soak Up the Urine With Tissues

It's a wet mess when your dog pees on the carpet - so the first thing you need to do is soak all the urine from the carpet with the help of thick paper towels or a napkin made of absorbent material. Try to absorb as much as possible with the help of the tissue or napkin so that you can proceed to the next step.

2. Pick Out Natural Cleaning Agents From Your Kitchen Cabinet

Cleaning a carpet your dog peed on doesn't require expensive chemical cleaning solutions - you can find them right in your kitchen cabinet! The best cleaning agents are vinegar and baking soda, which remove stains and tackle odour. You have to begin by soaking your carpet with a diluted solution of vinegar and water in equal proportions. Directly applying concentrated vinegar on the carpet may damage it; hence it is best to opt for a diluted solution. If required, carry out a small patch test to check whether vinegar is safe for your carpet or not. 

Allow the vinegar to settle on the carpet for a couple of minutes before you begin blotting it out with a fresh napkin. The stain on the carpet may not vanish instantly; in this case, sprinkle vinegar over it again and repeat the whole process. If the pee stain goes away, but the smell persists, choose baking soda - sprinkle it on the carpet and let it do its magic! Baking soda has odour-absorbent properties and works wonders to help get rid of even the most stubborn smells. 

3. Vacuum the Carpet

Once the stain and smell on the carpet vanish, all you have to do is vacuum the carpet. If any baking soda sediments still appear on the carpet, dust them off with a napkin. Your squeaky clean, odour-free carpet is now fit to use again!

Some Tips to Consider

  • If you don't have vinegar or baking soda handy, use any cleaning product available at home. 
  • If the urine has dried up, you can start by applying a layer of baking soda on the carpet. Follow up with vacuuming and treating it with cleaning solutions or vinegar.
  • Getting rid of the smell is essential, as the odour will prompt your dog to pee over the area again. 

These are simple steps to remove pee stains from your carpet - but if you continue to do it, you'd realize that it's quite a task! And if you're looking for an easier way out, you can always consider carpets that are easier to clean, remove, and reinstall - and Matace carpets perfectly fit the bill!
