People love their pets. However, pets can sometimes be a nuisance because they can leave stains in furniture. Fortunately, these stains do not have to be a permanent part of your furniture. There are things that you can do to remove pet stains from furniture.
Find The Stain
In many cases, it is easy to find the stain. However, if the stain has already dried, then you may not be able to see it. You can turn off all of the lights in the room and use a black light to identify the stain.
Soak Up As Much Of The Urine As Possible
If your pet has just soiled the furniture, then you should try to remove as much of the urine as possible. It will be a lot easier for you to remove the stain if you can clean up the urine before it dries on the furniture. You can use paper towels and newspapers to remove the urine.
How To Remove Hardened Stains
You will need a fresh, damp cloth to remove hardened stains from the furniture. You will need to mix soap or a cleaning product with warm water. You can also add baking soda to the mixture. Dip the cloth into the mixture. Allow the cloth to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Lift up the cloth and try to get as much residue as you can. Repeat these steps if the stain remains.
You can also use a steam cleaner to remove pet stains. Steam cleaners are also a great choice for older people and those with limited mobility and have problems getting up and down. Furthermore, a steam cleaner can remove stains that you may not be able to remove with just soap and water.
These pet stain removal tips will also help you get rid of the odor. However, if you are unable to remove the stain and odor, then it is time to contact a local furniture cleaning service. We can clean and restore your furniture.
