Pet hair from dogs and cats can become embedded in carpet and is hard to remove even by vacuuming. To remove pet hair from carpeting, attach an old mop handle to a window squeegee, and use the rubber blade to rake up the pet hair.
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.
I did get the (yuk,numerous!) clumps of pet hair on the old rug I cleaned, which for years had been vacuumed with a Dirt Devil “Vision” (Hepa filter type bagless) vacuum that I did not realize how crummy it was in light of the newer vacuums now available.

Freshen the air. Whether your house is plagued with pet odors or not, air fresheners can always sweeten your home’s scent. Pick a commercial freshener, or make your own. Either way, you’ll have a ton of options, from warm vanilla to fresh citrus. When you opt for commercial sprays, gels, or plug-ins, make sure they’re specially formulated to be safe for pets. Spray it around the house to freshen the air.
Sometimes we are so distracted by the fact that dog puddle appeared again on our favorite carpet that we immediately forget about all the tips and secret methods. Some of us start screaming at the pet and the others just throw the carpet out on the balcony until it will dry out. Unfortunately liquid will only evaporate but not the smell.
Just purchased this yesterday and used it last night. I have a golden retriever and thankfully he doesn’t have accidents in the house.. However- he did recently throw up and when I cleaned it up i realized how dirty my carpets were. After using this, my carpets look brand new! I’m attaching a photo of the progress as well as one from the throw up stain before and after. Only downside I can think of is that the carpets were still a little damp the next morning. That could be our fault though. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a carpet cleaner.

Our cat throws up….a LOT. we’re in a rental and moving at the end of August. I was thinking we’d lose our deposit because of these stains, but now I’m thinking maybe not!! Claire, thank you! I’m trying this right now!
Pet messes on your carpet? Coffee or Cola Spills? No problem. BISSELL DeepClean Premier Pet Carpet Cleaner delivers powerful deep cleaning on carpets and upholstery to remove pet stains and pet odors.
Pets are great, but they don’t always smell that way. Even the cutest cats and dogs can make your rugs and furniture stinky if you’re not vigilant. Worse, even the best pets can have accidents on the rug.
So, without further ado, let’s discuss three of the best pre-cleaner shampoos around. They’re made for cleaning carpets and if you combine them with the right machine… you’ll never have to worry about a stained or smelly carpet again.
You love your pets. You love your carpets. Unfortunately the two don’t co-exist well. Knowing how to get pet stains out of carpet is a key a skill for dog and cat owners. Here’s how to clean some of the most common messes caused by your animals.
Nothing works. Dried stains are bad, we wash them and stink is still there. Wet stains are more manageable, I do the paper towel trick then soak with the stain remover. But dried ones went thru the entire carpet and even thru the wood under carpet (how do I know? Replaced carpet once, the wood underneath was soaked with the stinker’s urine), so I have the smell all the time, just waiting my dog will pass away as she is very old and sick, and then we will put the hard wood. In the mean time, professional cleaning doesn not help, vet vaccuum that we own, does not help either. I am frustrated.
Start off by taking all of the furniture apart – pillows, blankets and the like – and vacuuming everything thoroughly. If the sofa and chairs have removable slipcovers or cushion covers, take those off for washing (details later). Get into the crevices of the furniture as deep as possible to remove all the hair, and flip the bed mattress to get both sides. On the floors, make sure to get under all of the furniture and in the corners, where “hair bunnies” tend to gather.
I have cats. And when felines are around there can be an accident or two. I have tried multiple products that claim they break down enzymes, that are organic, they remove odors, blah blah blah making all claims but don’t work. So I read the reviews on this page and ordered 2 bottles. One for me and one for my boyfriend who owns a large dog. This product has gotten rid of the smell of cat urine unlike any other. And so well, that the cat has not re-marked that spot or any other. I have put my nose down to it, almost touching the previously soiled area and can’t smell anything! Even the product’s great fragrance is gone. I mean, it just smells…….clean! I totally recommend this product. The bottle is small but that is because it is concentrated. I am a believer, hallelujah, it works!!!!! I wish it came in gallon size and wish it had combined shipping when ordering more than 1!!!!!!!
Important: Before implementing hydrogen peroxide on your carpet try it on the small part of the carpet and make sure that carpet does not change the color. If the test is accomplished and carpet is looking good go ahead and wash the whole spot with the cleaning mixture.
Add a one-pound box of baking soda to your regular detergent and wash as usual, air-drying if possible. If you can still see or smell the soiling, wash again with an enzymatic cleaner — these break down pet-waste odors.
Add a bit of bleach into the water (ratio of 1:10) and stir it. Apply the resulting mixture on the spot where your dog left some pee. In 20 minutes wash the whole surface or even the whole carpet with the water.

Really helpful! The light sounds especially useful, as I have mostly black and other dark fabrics. Accidents are hard to spot! Our dog doesn’t actually pee in the floor, he is just one of those dogs that sprinkles when he is happy (and excited, scared, upset, sleeping, etc!)
anything with enzymes will work in a spray bottle also , i have same issue ! going to have to replace carpet and not sure what to put back down ! have you tried some pee pads ? just lay a couple down at night !
Purchase a repellent spray if your pet keeps urinating in the same area. There are a variety of sprays available for different types of pets, such as dogs and cats. Search for one that fits your household needs (such as being safe for use in houses with children) and won’t damage your particular type of carpet.
Open windows. There’s nothing like some nice, fresh breeze to air out bad smells. In spring, summer, and fall, open windows throughout the house to create a breeze that will blow fresh air in one window and bad smells out the other.
