We all love our pets but in many cases they leave their odor all over the place and often stain furniture.  We have put together a couple of tips that you should consider if you want to do away with those pesky odors and stains from your beloved pets.

Stain Removal

Wet Stain Removal

  • The first thing you need to do is use cloth or paper towels to soak up the liquid matter. If you are removing pet urine from a carpet for instance, you can place a towel on the area and cover with a wad of newspapers.  Leave this on for a while to absorb the liquid.
  • After soaking up the stain, use some cold water to clean the area. Use a vacuum cleaner or blotting method to remove any excess water after the process of rinsing the area.
