7 Easy Steps To Remove Cat Urine Pee From Carpet
June 10, 2021
Oh dear, it’s that time of year again! You drift off to sleep only to be woken by Felix singing at the top of his lungs outside your window that he’s looking for a lady. And then when he doesn’t find her, he promptly comes home through the cat door and expresses his displeasure with the situation on the side of the couch. So what can you do to rescue your poor beleaguered couch and carpets from feline anointing?
If you’ve been out for a few hours, chances are that your kitty’s urine stain may have been sitting for a while. As soon as you discover it, it’s important to clean it right away. If you wait too long, on top of being straightforward nasty-looking, bacteria can start to grow in the affected area, which leads to nasty stinks.
Here’s one way to remove cat urine from carpet:
•Soak up the urine stain using paper towels or a cotton cloth. Press firmly into the stain using an old shoe or something disposable. This will help absorb as much urine as possible from the carpet.
•Using white vinegar and water, mix a solution in a bowl (50% vinegar, 50% water). You’ll want to mix enough of the solution so that it can reach deep down into the carpet’s fibers.
•Pour the solution onto the urine stain. Using a scrubbing brush, work all of it deeply into the carpet, scrubbing vigorously. The vinegar should help to neutralize the ammonia in the urine.
•Blot the urine stain using a paper towel, pressing firmly into it.
•When that section of the carpet is dry, take one to two handfuls of baking soda (depending on the size of the urine stain) and sprinkle it onto the stain.
•Mix one-half cup of three percent hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and apply to the stain. You can use the scrubbing brush again to thoroughly clean the carpet.
•Once dry, vacuum the area.
If you’ve done your level best and the stain or stink is still noticeable, give BCS a call at 801 561 1730 and have the professionals take care of it for you in a jiffy.
How Do I Clean Bird Pigeon Pee Urine From My Car’s Carpet Mats?
February 11, 2021
Tweetybirds are adorable with their cooing and chattering (from the safety of a neighboring branch), but then they pee. On your carpet, of all places. Nice. Maybe it isn’t your own personal Tweety-Pie that is the offender – perhaps you were innocently minding your own business and a pigeon decided to randomly hop in for a ride in your car before going ballistic and dumping his guts all over your fabric seats and car mats.
Either way, before screaming bloody murder and losing the will to live, here’s the lowdown on getting that mess up off your car’s carpet mats and fabric coverings.
For urine on a rug or carpet, blot – never rub – to absorb as much of the liquid as possible, then cover with a generous sprinkling of baking soda. Baking soda (bicarbonate of soda is its fancy name) is a miracle product, and it’s worth investing in a Costco-sized crate of the stuff for multiple stain-related emergencies. Let it sit for at least an hour before vacuuming up.
If you’re still left with more bird DNA on your carpet than you’d like, mix together a half cup of hydrogen peroxide (3 percent) and one teaspoon of ammonia (use a clothes peg for your nose); apply to the affected area with a rag and leave to do its thing for thirty minutes, then blot dry.
For a final rescue remedy, saturate the area with club soda (the fizzy will help loosen and lift any leftover discoloration) and blot dry again.
If you’re still in dire straits and the above hasn’t quite rescued you from Tweety’s tinkles, give the experts at BCS a call at 801 561 1730. Our professionals will have your carpets spick and span in a jiffy!
