How to Remove Pet Stains and Odors from Carpet

If you're a pet owner, you know that accidents happen. And when they do, it's important to clean them up right away, so the stain doesn't set in and become harder to remove.

Here are some tips on how to clean pet stains and keep your carpet looking its best! We'll also provide information on how often you should have a professional deep clean done to eliminate all the dirt and allergens that pets can bring into the home.

For Urine Stains

Whoops! Your pet has had an accident on your carpet, and you need to clean it right away. Here's what you can do to remove urine stains and smell from your carpet:

  • Blot the area with a clean, dry towel to remove as much urine as possible.

  • Mix one part white vinegar with one part water and pour it onto the stain.

  • Let the mixture sit for a few minutes, then blot it up with another clean, dry towel.-

  • Pour cold water over the area to remove the vinegar.

  • Repeat steps two and three until the stain is gone and the area smells fresh again.


Urine isn't always the only thing from your pet that can stain your carpet or produce a smell. Dirty and muddy paws can also stain your carpets and furniture.

For Dirty and Muddy Paws

If your pet tracks in dirt or mud, it's important to clean it up immediately to prevent stains. Here's what you can do:

  • Use a damp towel or cloth to wipe the area clean.

  • Mix one part detergent with two parts water and blot the mixture onto the stain.

  • Let it sit for a few minutes, then blot it up with another clean towel.

While these tips are helpful, some stains and smells may still be a little more difficult to remove.
