Did Fido or Kitty leave you a present again? Maybe you found an old surprise when you went to rearrange the furniture? Regardless of when the deed was done, you can restore your carpet or floor to its former glory. All you need is some cleaning know-how and a little elbow grease. Use wet towels or paper towels, layered and topped by some kind of weight, to quickly absorb fresh puddles. Run the towels under cool water, then wring them out so they’re damp but not dripping. Place them over the stain completely and put something heavy on top, like cans of food, a pair of shoes, or a book.

The moisture helps soak up the urine, while the weight presses the towels down into the carpet. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes. If you use heavy books, put a layer of plastic wrap or aluminum foil on top of the wet towels first, to avoid wetting and staining the book. Fold a bath towel two times and cover the urine spot. Stand on towel and dab the urine into the towel by walking In place. When urine is seen on the towel under your shoes pick up the towel and cover the urine with an unsoiled section of the folded towel.

Repeat as necessary to get the liquid up. As urine comes up from the carpet use unfolded towels or only fold once. If the spot has been wet longer than 10 minutes, it’s probably soaked into the carpet pad. Re-wet the spot with water. After you’ve lifted the towel, pour a small amount of cold water over the spot again. Start pouring just outside the perimeter of the stain, slowly moving toward the center. This will prevent the water from spreading the urine out into an even wider circle.

Allow the water to work through the stain for about a minute. Spray enzyme cleaner over the area. Non-toxic and effective, enzymatic cleaners work by breaking down stains into their basic elements, eliminating the compounds that create smells and stains. Using an enzymatic cleaner is the best way to help break down the proteins left over from the urine, removing the smell as well as the impulse for the pet to urinate in the same spot again. Most enzymatic cleaners need to be kept on a wet area for several hours. However, some might use a different process, so be sure to read the instructions on the label. If you’re cleaning wool carpet, make sure the cleaner is wool-safe.

Apply another towel and absorb the cleaner. After soaking the spot with cleaning, follow the same procedure as with the first absorbing, and put a fresh towel over the enzymatic cleaner to absorb it and thoroughly cleanse the area. Weight the towel with a heavy object and leave it alone. Allow the towel to sit overnight. When you pull it up in the morning, the visible stain should be gone, as well as the smell. Clean or dispose of the towels. Because the towels you used for absorbing the urine will have faint traces of your pet’s scent, it’s important to keep your pet from marking them again. Help your pet avoid the temptation by discarding the towel. If you used paper towels in your poultices, be sure to seal them in a garbage bag and get rid of them as soon as possible, so that your pet doesn’t try urinating on them, or digging them out of the garbage. If you used cloth towels, put them into the washer immediately and run with hot water to clean them thoroughly, if you don’t want to discard them completely.
