I am so annoyed. upon moving a bed to another room I found three pee stains rather large under the bed smack dab in the middle of carpet. I tried three carpet cleaners and a toothbrush scrubbing allowing overnight soaking in. I tried three different at home carpet cleaner as well. When wet it looks like the stain is completely gone. But when fully dry stain reappears. Any suggestions? If I hire a commercial cleaner it will look great until it dries any help from anyone???
But at just over 5 feet, the hose is average-length. This model might fit the bill if you have a smaller space in a one-story house; it can cover only 15 square feet on one full tank of solution. (Some machines cover twice that area.) But you’ll end up with a carpet that dries easily because this Bissell scores an Excellent on our dryness test.
Stain isolators… isolate stains. This keeps the urine or other serious issues out of your normal water tank. While it might not be a problem in many situations, you’ll quickly find that frequent usage without one is going to take some ammonia and a rag to make sure your entire machine doesn’t start to reek.
Thank you so much for the pet stain and odor remover. I have 3 dogs, 2 are seniors and are prone to accidents now. I have a questions for you. Do you know of anything that helps toe nail fungal infections. I has caused my nails to thicken and are very uncomfortable.
If you face the problem on the everyday basis (usually it is happening when you have a puppy and you are just trying to teach the puppy to pee where he should) you can prepare a small bottle of the mixture.

No need to worry about staining either, this product breaks down the stains which can emerge from urine in a natural way. This allows things to get settled out and leave you with a clean floor that only has the cleaner’s scent to it.

Enzymes are protein that help break up urine molecules and dissolve odors. Enzyme cleansers work, but they can take some time. You’ll spray or blot the area with cleaner, then let it sit for a while before blotting it up and scrubbing the spot. You may need to repeat this process.
Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a weak base chemical. As such, it neutralizes many acids, which are the cause of most odors, including any your pet can create on his own. This means that, unlike topical fragrances, baking soda does not merely mask odors, it destroys an acid’s ability to make an odor.
For the record I used the 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula 99K52 and LOVED it, it took stains out that I didn’t think would ever come out as they had been there so long. It worked so well that I’m not going to replace this old rug for awhile as it’s not looking too bad anymore. Yes, I can still see very faint residual marks where the red clay foot prints had stained it but I know where to look, if you just came in you wouldn’t see them at all. I was amazed at it’s stain cleaning ability.

I never have problems with pee. My problem is with a cat that throws up. How do you get those stains out. My brand new carpet is stained so bad it needs replacing again. Cat food is made of brightly colored
1. Heavy. I know. I just said in #4 above that it was great it was heavy and don’t get me wrong, it is great and I wouldn’t change that fact, but that is just a con for some people who can’t do “heavy” for medical / physical reasons and I get that. I like the dry carpet more than I need a lightweight cleaner. Heavy duty motor sucks the water out, lightweight motor? Not so much. I had another Bissell about 13 years ago and it didn’t work worth a hoot. Ended up in the dumpster after a year. If weight is an issue for you, you may want to think about it.
Our experts use a colorimeter, a device that measures the absorption of light wavelengths, to take 60 readings of each carpet swatch: 20 in its “virgin” state, 20 after it has been soiled, and 20 after it has been cleaned. The total? 180 readings per machine.
Now, you ask why would I give it a 4 star rating and not a 5 since I am so in love with this thing and all of my “cons” are really “not that big of a deal” to me? Because these are all legitimate complaints that others who have reviewed this product have made. I would recommend it highly and from the rooftops even though I legitimize their complaints. I think for what you are getting, this machine is a WAY better deal than paying someone to “professionally” do the job for you for the same price and get substandard, WET results in the meantime. The pros NEVER got our tromped down traffic areas fluffy.
Then pour on Natures Miracle or The Simple Solution. (commercial products that can be purchased in most pet stores). Here is the trick, you must cover more than double the stained area when you pour on the product to ensure it soaks into the padding. Then walk away and allow to soak in and dry.
While commercial products offer a lot of advantages, there are a couple of ways that you can take care of things yourself without investing in a product. They might not be quite as efficacious but it’s always good to save a bit of cash.
The first step is to grab a length of around six sheets of kitchen roll, fold this into a six sheet thick square and press it down onto the wet area of the carpet with your foot. Repeat with fresh kitchen roll until the area is as dry as you can get it.
Rarely review anything but I had to for this product. First let me say that I have a graveyard of at least 100 cat urine neutralizer products… none of them have worked for me. This product, however, is AMAZING! I have two cats and they occasionally pee outside their litter box. Many covers have been destroyed and thrown away. I wish I had discovered this product sooner. I put the stained covers in the washer machine first with vinegar and let them soak for a few hours. Then I put them through the rinse cycle 2-3 times. After that I soaked them with this product overnight (I’m sure it doesn’t have to be that long, I just wanted to make sure the fabric soaked it up) and then rinsed and dried the covers. I smell NOTHING, the covers do NOT smell like urine and the product does not leave an after scent. The only problem I had was that the bottle is sooooooo small, but it is my fault for not noticing the size before buying. I will be purchasing this product again. I am so happy to finally find something that works!
Kidney disease causes chemicals in urine to become concentrated and to cause a smell resembling ammonia. Kidney dysfunction can also cause high bacteria and protein levels in the urine, which will contribute to a foul, ammonia smell.
Try cleaning without detergent at first. If you find that you’re still not pulling up the stain, ask the representatives at the rental center what they recommend, and try to use as little detergent as possible.
Sally grew up in a feline-only home, but cat allergies in her early 20’s made it an easy transition to dog ownership. And she couldn’t be happier with her canine shadow, who’s been at her side (literally) for years. No longer a cat person for obvious reasons, Sally is now a true bone-ified dog lover.
I was very ill for a while and could not take my pet girl out as often as usual. She started peeing on the doormat which is just inside the front door on top of the wooden flooring.. I threw the mat out and followed the vinegar/bicarb hints but still the odour persisted and much worse when the central heating is on..I have an oriental type rug runner in the hall and I do not want her to start using this to pee on!!
I do hope you have success in resolving your problem – I am in the UK and we have the NCCA here (National Carpet Cleaners’ Association) – but if you are in the USA, you could try contacting the trade association for professional carpet cleaners in your area to see if you were given bad advice by the carpet cleaner who steam cleaned your floor. He was evidently aware of the dog urine problem as soon as he arrived to clean your carpet. If this is the case and he belongs to a professional body, you may have some comeback about this.
We have two dogs and one of them either peed or pooped upstairs. I have done everything I can imagine to get rid of the smell (cleaners, carpet steaming, screaming, etc) and nothing is working. Do you guys have any ideas aside from ripping out the carpet.
