HELP! How to remove urine from carpet!

asked 2015-01-02 21:17:13 -0500

Hello Rover sitters and pet parents! I had some potty trained furry guests that still pee on my carpet and after I cleaned with a spacial urine remover with enzyme action, my carpet still has urine odor. I never had this problem since my dog is well trained. Is there any good tips to remove the odor and prevent new clients to do it again! Thank you !!! :))

I second the black light. It is so useful. When I have meet and greets and see dogs sniffing the carpet, that is a big indicator that there is something there. At night, when it's pitch dark you shine the light over the carpet and you can see what is going on. That way you know where to spray. I am currently using Pet Peeve Household Pet Stain and Stink Remover. It had great reviews on Amazon so I am giving it a try. Seems to be working well so far, just follow the directions to a T.

We went the carpet cleaner route and it did not solve the problem. First, I highly suggest you purchase a blacklight urine detector. It totally looks like a gimick, it's a tiny flashlight that's a blacklight but WOW - shows you all of the urine spots on the carpet. Just a warning - it can be scary....

I recently purchased this from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J...auidetailpageo01s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I sprayed all of the spots last night and it says to let it air dry so hopefully it does the trick.

I'm a big fan of Kids 'N' Pets and Nature's Miracle. Depending on how far it soaked in to the carpet backing and the subfloor, you may need to treat a larger area than you think, and repeat multiple times to get everything. A carpet spot cleaner/shampooer might also help - you can rent them from Home Depot/Lowe's. I've also known people to order the enzyme cleaner that crime scene cleaners use. I hear that stuff works magic, though I've never tried it myself.

This thread is reaffirming my love of wood floors.

Like Amber said, if you use the black light you may be in for a surprise. Dogs leave behind urine all over the house, even the well trained ones that do use the bathroom inside. The dogs still have urine inside their tract even when they have used the restroom and every dog excretes a little bit with various every day activities. Not all of it may get on your carpet, but when they lay in their beds, your bed, couch, etc, it gets rubbed against furniture and carpets. It's inevitable, and it's something that a pet owner has to come to terms with (even more so for a pet sitter!)

Dogs leave behind their scent or 'mark' in may different ways and not only through urine. So just because a dog is paying attention to a particular spot doesn't necessarily mean someone had an accident there. If you think about the thousands of places we've been, and the thousands of things we have stepped in (majority of the time without knowing) we track all of that inside our home every day, and so do our pets. Just like you have to tell your kids to not put money in their mouth because that quarter has probably been in thousands of pockets, wallets, hands, and who knows what else. The same thing goes for us and our pets. Which is one of the main reasons why we do not wear shoes in our home. This is a bit of an odd topic for me when I have meet and greets in my home. I'll kindly let them know they can leave their shoes by the shoe rack (we have a tower rack that houses all of our shoes, since we strongly believe in no outdoor shoes in the home), and sometimes they kindly deny and say that they'll leave them on. Then what? I understand that not everyone is used to the same customs that my family and I are, but the fact of the matter is, you're in my home, and you have to respect it. I always feel awkward requesting for them to take their shoes off, though no one has ever objected a second time. I would never dare wear my shoes in someone else's home, and I've had some strange stares from others when they see that I have removed my shoes. Who knows! All I know is, I'd never disrespect someone's home by dragging my dirty 'though clean' shoes in their home.

I went off topic a little, but we drag stuff into our homes every day. Point blank! So I am always very good about constantly cleaning on a regular basis. Dogs mark to distinguish territory, but it doesn't always have to be over pee or poop. It can be anything they're trying to mask with their scent. I place baking soda on my carpets once or twice a week, let ... (more)

White Vinegar! Pat up the urine with a paper towel then pour some vinegar on it, let it sit for a while then pat that up too!

Soaking pee out of carpet is one of my least favorite activities. Second the Nature's Miracle.

I've always used plain white vinegar to remove urine odors from the carpet! An easy solution as most people have this readily available at home :)
