Having a dog at home means that sooner or later an accident will happen and you will have to take proper care of that accident if you don't want to end up with permanent stain on your carpet. The best way to deal with a dog urine stain is by addressing it immediately when it occurs, otherwise you will face a lot of difficulties to remove the stain when it dries. Fortunately, no matter whether the stain has dried or not, there is a simple cleaning method, involving inexpensive household products, that can help you to remove dog urine stains from carpet effectively.

  • Gently blot the stained area with paper towels to remove the excess liquid from the carpet. Be careful not to push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers while blotting.
  • Dilute 1 cup of white vinegar or ammonia with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. The vinegar or ammonia will neutralize the dog urine. Simply spray the stain with the solution, and then blot it up with paper towel. Keep applying cleaning solution to the dog urine stain and absorbing it with paper towels until the paper towels no longer look yellow.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of bleach-free dish washing soap and 2 cups of lukewarm water in a spray bottle. Apply the solution to the carpet in order to remove any remaining stains. Use a clean towel to blot up the solution along with the urine stain from the carpet. Avoid scrubbing the stain, as this can  damage the carpet fibers, according to cleaners Lewisham.
  • Apply one cup of warm water directly to the problematic area to rinse out the excess soap. Blot up the water with a clean, white towel, then repeat the process if there is any remaining suds on the carpet.
  • If the dog urine stain remains despite your efforts, consider hiring professional, such as cleaners Lewisham, to clean your carpet instead of you.
