Absorb as much as possible - We recommend using white terry towels and to compress the spot with something that has a good amount of weight so that the towel can absorb as much as possible. A stack of books, a heavy door stopper, or other manageable but heavy objects placed on the terry towel will compress it well. If there is a lot of urine, consider using a thicker white towel or change out the terry towel(s) for a fresh dry one(s). We recommend keeping the heavy object(s) on the towel(s) for 3-4 hours to give it time to work. There is a chance that the urine will wick completely into the towel and not leave a spot or stain.
Using A DIY Machine - With having the right knowledge, you can certainly use your own DIY store bought cleaning machine. They work well for dealing with pet accidents, especially if you're potty training or have an elderly dog. You want to extract as much urine as the machine can. For handheld machines, consider pressing down on the carpet to compress it and using extremely slow suction only passes. For vacuum-like or stand up machines very carefully apply downforce with your foot to help compress the carpet. This will squeeze the padding as well to help remove more urine.
Now that extraction is done, use a vinegar and water solution mixed at 2.5 cups of vinegar to 1 gallon of water. If your machine does not hold a whole gallon then use 2.5 cups of vinegar and fill the rest of the tank with water. Urine has a neutral pH when first leaving the pet's body, but then forms a salt crystal that is alkaline in nature. Vinegar is a safe solution on the acid side of the pH scale that will help keep the urine from turning alkline making it easier to remove. Rinsing the urine spot with vinegar will break up any urine that has started to crystallize and allow you to remove more. It also helps any staining not to set into the carpet and leave it in a state that our professional products will work on if needed.
After rinsing, absorb as much as possible using a similar technique as we mentioned above in the "absorb as much as possible" section. This process has a lot of success in dealing with these issues to keep the spots manageable between professional cleanings. It also ensures that if you feel it is too much to tackle that it gives us a fighting chance to be able to remove the issue too.
I told you you would love them, and the tech's that came to my house were so honest I mistakenly gave them the money I had for the auto shop which was considerably more, and they had already left. They returned and gave it back, .they did a great job for just $99.00 I will continue to recommend this company. Response: Thanks Verlie Chestnut! Honesty, integrity and awesome results are just a couple of our core principles that are what our company has been built upon. We settle for nothing less! Just as important, if not more so, it's our customers like you that have really made us such an explosive success!
