Being a pet owner can have its perks such as unconditional love from our furry pals. Still, one of the down sides about them is the possibility of a pet stain. This is particularly the case of owners who have puppies as they’re not fully trained to do their business outside. Inevitably, you’ll have carpet stains that are difficult to remove! So what are you supposed to do when you find yourself in such a dilemma?

Stone Surfaces

If you have materials like terrazzo, slate, sandstone, masonry tile, limestone, granite, flagstone, concrete, brick, and bluestone, try the following:

-If there are solid materials, scrape it off and then scrub with solutions of detergent or washing soda and water.

-After that, rinse with water and let it dry.

Synthetic Fibers

-Remove all excess solids by gently scraping them off the article.

-Do not force the stain onto the material.

-Gently dab a sponge on the article using a 1-quart warm water, one tablespoon ammonia and one teaspoon liquid detergent.

-Lightly stroke the stained area and blot it with an absorbent pad like a paper towel.

-To get rid of traces of ammonia, rinse with water.


-If present, remove all solids and apply pet cleaners like Spot Shot Carpet Stain Remover. To prevent your carpet from damaging, follow the instructions on the solution.

-Alternatively, blot the soiled area with a paper towel. Be careful not to push the liquid deeper.

-When no more liquid is absorbed, sponge it with 1 pint of warm water, one teaspoon of detergent.

-Repeat this method until no signs of urine is present.

-Blot excess liquid and wash down with warm water to remove ammonia.
