Have you ever had a spill or stain on your carpet that you cleaned but the odor has lingered? The smell from many spills and accidents are not removed when the stain is gone. The problem is that the spill and the liquid from the spill go deeper than just the fibers. The moisture will go down in the carpet backing as well as the padding as well. You want to make sure that your home is welcoming and part of that is keeping it clean and of course smelling good as well. If you allow odors to linger in your carpets you might get used to it but your guests will not. There are lots of stains that will leave behind odors such as coffee, beer and one of the most common is pet accidents. Their urine gets deep in the carpet and the odor can be quite bad if it is left untreated. You want to have a plan on how to deal with odors in your house. Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialist outlines helpful tips for how to remove stubborn odors from your carpets.
DIY Carpet Deodorizer for Pet Accidents
When you are dealing with stains on your carpet you need to know the best way to care for them. There are lots of techniques and methods that you can use to clean all sorts of stains. It is a good idea to know the best way to clean the stains that you might come across on a regular basis. There are some spills that tend to leave more odor behind than others. Pet urine is a top contender and will leave odor long after the stain has been removed. The best method is to find a product that acts as a deodorizer. The best way to do that is with baking soda that you can find in your cupboards. The baking soda will counter act the odor and allow you to pull it out of the carpets. You want to make sure that you have enough baking soda to cover the entire area that you want to treat for odor. You want to make sure that you cover the area completely and give it plenty baking soda. This needs to be left on the area for about an hour so that it has time to soak in any moisture that might be stuck in the carpet, baking and padding. You may notice that the baking soda starts to create harder pieces rather than a fine powder which is a good sign. After the baking soda has had time to sit on the area you want to make sure that you remove the larger chunks and throw them out. Then you can follow up with a vacuum cleaner to get the remaining mess cleaned up. This should pull up the deodorizer as well as the odor that it has soaked up and removed from your carpet.
