Our pets bring joy and happiness, most of the time. However, we all know the story, your pet was inside a bit too long and had an accident in the home. It happens. When it happens on upholstery or carpet, it can be quite the nightmare, leaving behind not only a stain, but a horrendous odor. Cleanpro, carpet cleaning in Portland would like to help today by providing a few tips to help you remove stains from upholstery or carpet. Remember that you should remove the stain and attempt to remove the odor as quickly as you discover it, considering that your pet may be attracted to this area and continue to use it as a bathroom, if not corrected. 

If the stain is newers/still wet: 

- Soak up as much of the urine with a paper towel, as possible. 
- Using paper towel and newspaper, form a layer over the top of the urine and either stand on it or press down with your hands
- Repeat this process until the area is as dry as possible
- Using cool water and essential oils, rinse the affected area
- Either dry with towels again or if possible, use a wet vac 

For set in stains: 

If you have pets, you’ll want to invest in a pet odor neutralizer and consider using this anytime you discover an affected area. Likewise, you’ll want to either try natural home remedies or a store bought stain remover, specifically for urine stains. 
- Don’t be afraid to use a stain remover and repeat the process if it did not have the desired effect. 
- Remember not to use any harsh chemicals in your carpet, as, at the very least, your pet is there on a regular basis. 
- Remember that baking soda is your friend: 
- Baking Soda and Vinegar
     * 2 cups of white vinegar 
     * 2 cups lukewarm water
     * 4 tablespoons baking soda
     * Spray Bottle
   - Always test on a less visible area before committing to using these products on visible parts of your carpet

Though you can use these steps to ensure your carpet is clean of momentary stains from your pets, nothing beats a professional clean every once in a while.
