I have recently received a rash of calls about cleaning up pet urine. So, that is the topic of this blog. As funny as it sounds, urine is a rather sophisticated problem. It requires slightly different approaches depending on whether it is fresh or had time to dry.
When Urine is fresh or still wet, the first step is to remove as much as possible
If your pet did not tell you they had an accident and you come across the spot after it has dried, white vinegar and water is your best approach. When urine has dried, the PH of the urine salts is on the alkaline side. Therefore, white vinegar is the best thing to use to neutralize and to remove the urine from the carpet or rug. To address the spot, mix 1/3 white vinegar with 2/3 water in a spray bottle. Spray the dried urine with the mixture, let it sit a few minutes and then remove it by blotting with a dry towel. This process will probably need to be repeated multiple times. Finally, the best way to determine if you have gotten the urine out is to actually smell the area.
