An old carpet could have urine stains on it that will cause a bad odor. To get rid of such stains, you will need to come up with more drastic measures.
Consider purchasing a black light. The black light is the perfect option for figuring out where the stain is and applying the cleaning solution to this part of the carpet.
A lightweight and portable Carpet Cleaner like this is very useful when you need to clean your carpets fast. It will clean up the mess and also deodorize the carpet to remove bad smells.
Buy a strong cleaning solution that is suitable for the type of carpet and the type of urine you are dealing with (either cat or dog). Use the procedure already described but keep in mind that you could have to repeat several times to get rid of the urine smell completely. Vacuum clean the carpet once it gets dry. This final step will help you get rid of any residue that could still be causing bad smell.
These techniques are very efficient – you simply need to find the right product and you need to perform the procedure patiently. Repeat several times for stubborn stains and you will be giving old carpets a second life. Need more help? Call Choicecare Carpet Care today @ 912-354-3067.
