how to clean pee off furniture or carpets

 


Are your carpets smudged, stained, or stinky? Ugh! The cost of dry cleaning seems outrageous compared to the value of the carpet. However, don't worry, as there are simple and economical ways to refresh your carpet. We've compiled a list of the best methods, all tried and approved by our editors.


1-Maintain your carpet to avoid grime build-up

It's best to vacuum at least once a week, extending the vacuum brush to its fullest length for a deeper clean. This method helps to lift the fibers and eliminates dust simultaneously. If your carpet has a high pile, a thorough dusting can help.


2-Shield your carpet from furniture marks

Furniture imprints can be stubborn, mainly because they flatten the carpet's pile or weave over time. A handy remedy is to use a small piece of carpet, cut to match the dimensions of the furniture leg. To remove these indentations, apply a steam iron set to cotton setting over the crushed pile (without pressing down) and gently brush to lift the fibers.


3-Don't spot clean


Your carpet may not be as clean as it seems, and cleaning a single spot could leave a noticeable difference. In case of any spills, solid or liquid, promptly scoop it up with two spoons and blot with paper towels. When cleaning your carpet, ensure you treat the entire surface!


Note: Always test the following solutions on a small, inconspicuous area first, because different materials like wool, silk, cotton, or synthetics may react differently to the products, and colors might fade.


The miraculous method to clean grease-stained carpet

Scrub the stained area with a cloth moistened with the solution, changing it as soon as it gets dirty. Focus on a square patch measuring 30 x 30 cm at a time. Afterwards, dry the area with a clean cloth and let it air-dry without walking on it. This is a great task to incorporate into your spring cleaning routine.


Use a steam cleaner on your carpet

If you have a steam cleaner, try not to put cleaning solution in the tank and use the minimum amount of water possible (to avoid soaking the carpet). Clean against the direction of the carpet pile and avoid walking on the damp areas. Replace the cleaning cloth regularly, then let the carpet dry fully before using it again.
