This is a tip that was passed along to me by a vacuum cleaner/steam carpet cleaner repair person. If using a steam cleaner/extraction machine (both Hoover and Bissell make them), use only hot water for the first pass – no cleaning solution or any kind. Make sure the water is as hot as you can get it. The hot water breaks down the enzymes in the cat or dog urine. After using the hot water and extracting as much as possible, use the solution recommended by your steam cleaner/extractor manufacturer for cleaning pet stains for the second pass. This will not only take away any smell, but also any stains. Using this method stopped our cat from going back to the spot where he had peed on the carpet repeatedly prior. So, how can you remove the dog urine odor from your carpets? Try these proven methods for cleaning up stains and salvaging the carpet.

The citric acid is also effective if you want to clean and remove urine odor from carpets.I just had my area rug professionally cleaned front and back plus they said sanitized because I had areas I could see from the back that had pee spots from the dogs I was sheltering. I put my nose to the carpet a day later and could still smell the urine! I looked for a recipe and found this. I did not go to the vinegar right away but I will for the next time. I am buying back up supplies today in bulk because I will treat the entire rug the same if it happens again. I used the hydrogen peroxide 3% with dish soap and a brush and the baking soda. Immediately I could see the baking soda lifting the urine up. I let it dry over night with box fans and ceiling fan going. I have a kurby and it did an okay job vacuuming up the mess but used my hand held to vacuum the kurby so I could get it outside to shake out the vacuum. I will have to take the vacuum apart to clean up the baking soda. It is well worth it. I put my nose to the carpet spot today and it is free of urine smell! Give this recipe a try. I will use it again for sure!When your pooch leaves a puddle on the carpet, he also leaves behind an obvious stain.
