How to Prevent Puppy Accidents: Puppies’ Accidents on Your Carpet – How to Clean (and Prevent)
Puppies are adorable for a reason. We’d go insane trying to clean up after them if they weren’t.
You might be dealing with some unpleasant accidents on your carpet in Sioux Falls if you’re just starting to potty train your puppy or trying to retrain an older dog. We’ll show you how to clean dog urine from your carpet and give you some tips on how to avoid accidents in the first place.
How to Get Pet Urine Out of a Carpet
- Saturate the spot with paper towels, newspaper, or old rags or towels to absorb the urine.
- Stand on this padding for about a minute, moving your feet around to absorb all wetness. (Make sure you’re wearing thick rubber-soled shoes!)
- Using a 1:1 solution of white vinegar and warm water, saturate the stain. Scrub this mixture into the carpet with a scrubbing brush.
- Blot the solution as you did in step 2 after about five minutes of soaking.
- After the area has dried, sprinkle baking soda on the stain.
- In a small bowl, combine a cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and a teaspoon of dish detergent, and gently scrub the solution into the stain. (First, test a small area of your carpet to make sure the peroxide won’t discolor it.)
- Once the area is dry, slowly vacuum it to remove any remaining debris. Voila! Your carpet should be clean now.
