Remove Pet Stains And Odors From Carpet
To properly remove pet stains, the best method is to do so using a steam cleaner or carpet cleaning machine of some sort. This will allow the cleaning solution to get deep into the carpet rather then just the surface as spot cleaning does. Remember, when your puppy leaves his mark in the carpet, anything that spreads below the surface will release odor your dog can smell... even if you can't. It is for this reason that a cleaner that deodorizes is so important. Removing that odor will prevent your dog from being attracted to that spot again.
When using a cleaner like Genesis 950, mix it in the machine at the proper ratio. Some tanks will have separate tanks for solution and water. These machines automatically mix the two based on your machine settings. Some machines have 1 compartment where you mix the water and solution. A 1:7 ratio of Genesis 950 to water is recommended, however this can be increased to a 50/50 mix for large or older stains.
Go over the area with the mixture allowing it to saturate the stained area. Allow it to sit for 10 - 20 minutes. This will allow the 950 to break down everything in the carpet. In extreme cases, the mixture can even sit overnight to really break everything down. Just don't let it dry or everything broken down will just adhere to the carpet.
After the area has been given time to sit, go over the area again with only water in the machine. Doing so will flush and remove everything that has been broken down. When first using a surfactant based cleaner, you may notice the water being returned being a brownish or black color. This is everything that has been pulled from below the surface of the carpet. You can rinse repeatedly until the water being returned starts appearing clear.
After you have rinsed, go over the area again only extracting water. Try removing as much moisture as possible. To help dry the area, you may also use fans or dehumidifiers. Avoid walking on the carpet as it dries.
