From time to time your pets may suffer an illness and make a mess on your carpet, are you prepared to deal with a situation like this?
Pet accidents in the house will occur at some point and it is really important we know exactly what to do if this happens. Failure to take immediate action could result in a permanently stained carpet and a foul odour.
We have dealt with many situation when a pet has urinated on the carpet, if the urine is allowed to dry it becomes alkaline and this will stain a wool carpet much like bleach.
To avoid this from happening we have to extract the urine from the carpet and neutralize the area, time is then taken to flush out the chemicals along with any further urine, failure to do this will result in damage to the carpet and time is the deciding factor here!
If your pet urinates or vomits on the carpet here are some steps you can take:
- Remove any solids from the carpet
- Apply an absorbent towel and apply pressure to soak up the spillage
- If you have access to an extraction machine, flush the area with warm water
- Re apply a dry, absorbent towel to capture any moisture
Using the above process will most definable save your carpet from damage , however this is a quick fix until a professional arrives!
Vomit and faeces contain harmful bacteria and it is very important the carpet is fully sanitized, only a professional carpet cleaning company will have access to specific products, never allow your children to play on a carpet where a pet has had an accident unless it has been fully treated by a professional
