Your beloved pet might be cute but this hardly applies to the mess they could leave on your flooring. If your pet has an accident on your carpet, don't rush to punish them but quickly take care of the stain before it becomes permanent mark on the carpet. Although, pet stains might look disgusting, this is not a reason not to remove it. These steps will help you to get rid of pet stains quickly and easily, especially if you treat the stain while it is still fresh.
Urine Stains

  • Use a white cloth or paper towels to soak up the excess urine from the affected surface. Using white cloths is recommendable since coloured ones might leave a dye into the fabric.
  • Cleaners Belgravia suggest using a solution of 1 cup warm water and ¼ teaspoon of mild liquid laundry detergent to remove the pet stain. Simply blot the solution repeatedly into the stain using a clean whit cloth until the mess is gone.
  • If the stain remains, try to remove it with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of ammonia and 1 cup of water. Blot the stain with the solution, then rinse the area with warm water.
  • If you don't have ammonia available at home, you can make an alternative solution by mixing 1 cup of white vinegar and 2 cups of water.
  • Once the stain is completely removed, lay several paper towels on the wet spot and weigh them down with a heavy book or brick. The purpose of this is to absorb excess moisture from soft surfaces, such as carpets and upholstery.
  • If you cannot remove the stain, consider hiring professionals, such as cleaners Bow church.
  • Feces Stains

  • Use a spoon or spatula to gently scoop up the excess material. Be careful, so you don't make the things worse.
  • Saturate the stained area with an ammonia solution (such described in step 3 for urine stains).
  • Let the solution soak into the stain for a few minutes, then blot it up with a clean white cloth. Rinse the area with cold water and repeat the process if needed.
