Facing issues with old pet stains? Looking for the best odor removal service cost in Bakersfield?
If you are a pet lover and have raised a pet at your home, you might have experienced pet stains and odor at your place. Even though the pet accident has occurred in one corner of the room but the smell can spread in the entire room. Cleaning old pet stains from carpet is sometimes essential when you miss out on the issue in the right way. Sometimes you find the pee because of the bad odor you experience. Treating a fresh urine spot is usually easier, but there is hope for older stains.
If you are working with dog urine, you’re a bit more fortunate. Dog pee is water based and easier to break down and remove than cat pee. The reason cat urine is hard to remove is that it is oil based.

Steps for Cleaning Old Pet Stains from Carpet
You probably know where some of the urine spots in your house are. We utilize a UV light and moisture probe to identify all pee spots that we can before beginning treatment. This is great when done in the darkest room as possible. Mark the spots with sticky notes, chalks, poker, chips, paper scraps or something that will allow you to locate the entire issue and plan your remediation. Keep in mind that urine spreads as it hits the sub-floors, so what you see on top is sometimes only half the size of the real problem.
Steps to Consider:
- Firstly, you need to vacuum the dried urine spot slowly and thoroughly to eliminate as much soil as possible. Sometimes spots reappear because of the amount of soil on and in the carpet. You need to do your best to control this soil and avoid wicking or soil rings. Remember to replace your markers if dealing with multiple spots.
- Next, you will need to soak the spot with a mixture of water and 3% Vinegar solution. Regular store bought vinegar is usually 5%, so dilute it 3 parts vinegar to 2 parts water. Saturate the affected area and allow the acidic vinegar to dissolve the alkaline urine salts. A 10 minute dwell time is usually enough.
- Remove as much as possible with a wet/dry vac. The SOS Sub Extraction tool is helpful for enhancing water recovery.
- Following the initial extraction process, flush with a mixture of water and deodorize, such as fresh waves in your house. Flush the area until the recovered water is cleared. You may also choose to use enzymes are living culter that kills other living culters. They can create an odor, and require time to work effectively. We also recommend flushing the area after using the enzyme treatment with a deodorizer.
- Once you have sufficiently flushed out all urine residue and have run your deodorizer of choice through the area, you need to extract as the water as much as possible. Again, using your wet/dry vacuum and the SOS extraction tool remove water until you feel you cannot remove any more water.
- After extracting as much as possible, blot the area with a towel to absorb as much surface moisture as you can.
- Place a fan on the area to dry quickly. An industrial powered centrifugal air mover is suggested and can sometimes be rented at hardware stores. A ceiling fan, box fan or another home fan can also be used. Drying the area quickly will reduce spots wicking back up from deep in the pad. If you do have a spot wick back on you, you will want to repeat the process as it is likely that you still have urine in the pad or carpet.
Sometimes, even your hard work and best efforts will not eliminate all of the urine. Your carpet or rug may get permanently stained. Sometime the odor will not be removed for various reasons. Cleaning old pet stains from the carpet is a salvage attempt and should be taken on after considering the replacement value and the need to stop further contamination. And repair structural damage.
