March 6, 2024

The last thing you think about when bringing home a furry friend is all of the stains they might bring with them, but it's the first thing figure out because it happens fast. Here's a guide on how to remove the most common pet stains.

Pet Pee

Removing pet urine can be a bit of a chore, but here's a step-by-step guide to help you get rid of it:

1. Blot the Urine: Use paper towels or a clean cloth to blot up as much of the urine as possible. Press firmly to absorb as much liquid as you can.

2. Apply a Cleaning Solution: Mix a cleaning solution of equal parts water and white vinegar. Apply the solution to the affected area.

3. Let it Soak: Allow the cleaning solution to soak into the area for about 10-15 minutes. This will help break down the urine and eliminate odors.

4. Blot Again: After soaking, blot the area again with clean paper towels or a cloth to absorb the cleaning solution along with any remaining urine.

5. Rinse with Water: Rinse the area thoroughly with clean water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution.

6. Dry Completely: Allow the area to air dry completely. You can use a fan to speed up the drying process if necessary.

7. Use an Enzymatic Cleaner: If the odor persists, you may need to use an enzymatic cleaner specifically designed to break down pet urine odor-causing bacteria. Follow the instructions on the product label for best results.

8. Consider Professional Cleaning: In severe cases or if the urine has soaked into carpet padding or subflooring, you may need to consult a professional cleaner to thoroughly remove the odor and stains.

Remember to always test any cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn't damage or discolor your carpet or upholstery.

Pet Poo

Removing pet poop can be a bit unpleasant, but here's how you can do it effectively:

1. Wear Gloves: Before you begin, put on a pair of gloves to protect your hands from bacteria and germs.

2. Pick Up Solid Waste: Use a plastic bag or pooper scooper to pick up the solid waste. Be careful not to press too hard to avoid smearing it.

3. Dispose of Waste Properly: Tie the bag securely and dispose of it in an outdoor trash bin. Do not flush pet waste down the toilet, as it can contaminate water sources.

4. Clean the Area: If the pet poop has left residue on the ground, use a mild detergent and warm water to clean the area thoroughly. You can also use a pet-safe disinfectant to kill any bacteria.

5. Rinse with Water: After cleaning, rinse the area with clean water to remove any remaining soap or disinfectant.

6. Dry the Area: Allow the area to air dry completely. You can also use a towel to pat it dry if needed.

7. Check for Stains and Odors: If there are any stains or lingering odors, you can use a pet-safe enzymatic cleaner to break down organic matter and eliminate odors. Follow the instructions on the product label for best results.


After cleaning up the aforementioned pet stains, having to clean up mud might be a relief. Cleaning up mud is easy by following these easy steps.
