Accidents happen at home unexpectedly. It can be a nuisance when your toddler, pet dogs or cats urinate on your favorite sofa, mattress or carpet. Here’s some tip on how to remove urine stains from your carpet, sofa or mattress.
Before you decide to engage professional for help, you can try the self-help stain removal steps below:
1. Act fast, the longer the urine stain stays in your carpet or sofa; the harder it is to remove it.
2. Use a cloth to blot the affected area to reduce or remove the urine. Do not scrub, gently blot.
3. Dilute a small amount of detergent and vinegar with water and wet a clean white cloth with this mixture.
4. Blot directly to this urine stain spot repeatedly and wet the cloth when necessary. (This step should remove most of the stain).
5. Use a dry cloth to blot the affected area, this step will remove the solution together with the urine stain.
6. If step 5 cannot fully remove the stains, try using a few drops of undiluted hydrogen peroxide and ammonia on the affected spots directly.
7. Repeat step 5 until both the hydrogen peroxide and ammonia are removed from the affected area.
8. Use a slightly wet cloth to clean treated spot till the chemicals are removed from your carpet.
