DIY Pet Vomit Clean Up

In what may seem like a bit of a gross topic, we are going to give you some tips as to what to do when your pet has a vomit accident on your carpet. Now, the best course of action is to have one of our Professional Carpet Technicians come apply their methods for dog urine removal. But, in the meantime we will provide some tips for lighter cleaning or to keep it as clean as possible until we can get there to service your home.

Step one would be to scoop as much of the mess up. Yes, I know it may be a bit gross, but it needs to be done. Once you scooped up the larger chunks and a majority of the liquid, you will want to dap as much of the leftover fluid up as possible. Just like any other spill or stain, you want to dap the fluid up as opposed to wiping it. That will typically cause more damage. You will want to apply some cold water to the stain as you dap it up.

If you want to try finishing it off on your own there is a good, homemade solution you can make and use. Try mixing water, vinegar and detergent in a bowl. Lightly apply the mixture to the problem area and dab it with a dry cloth. As an extreme measure, you can try applying Rubbing Alcohol to the area with a dry rag next.

If you give it a try and you can’t achieve the desired result, feel free to let our Professionally Trained Carpet Technicians give it a try!
