How to Remove Dog Poop from Carpet

 

As a carpet cleaning professional we receive many calls a week from customers who are going through new puppy training or some other type of accident such as the family pet getting sick. Most often in these cases it is possible for the homeowner to clean the area without having to call in the professionals.

Here are a few tips on what to do.

 

1.  If the feces is solid, remove as much as possible with rubber gloves and toilet paper and flush it down the toilet or place it in a trash bag, flushing is more eco-friendly ! laughing

If loose use a shop vac to extract as much of the waste out as possible always working upward.

It is very important during this step to not allow the feces to go down further into the carpet backing.

If you do not have a shop vac then allow the area to dry and loosen it later with a fork, spatula, or similar tool.  

You can place a bowl over the area to keep the odor from stinking up the room.

 

2.  After removing as much of the feces from the area as possible apply a pet cleaning agent to the stained area. Be sure you mist the surface only, do not over saturate.

You can purchase a pet stain remover at your local pet store and keep it handy for these special occasions.

These cleaning products are made to break down pet urine and feces and will help eliminate the odor and bacteria from the carpet.

 

Note:  Do not use soap and water! Most of the information found online suggests using household cleaning detergents and flooding the area; this will only make your problem worse.

 

3. Using a carpet shampooer such as a Rug doctor or Bissell home shampooer extract the area thoroughly.

If you do not have this type of system you can blot the area in a circular motion using a wet teri-cloth towel along with your pet cleaning agent.

You may have to repeat the blotting process several times rinsing the towel between cleanings to get the stain out. 

It is well worth repeating; Do not over saturate the carpet, simply mist and blot. This will take longer but will save you from creating a bigger mess.

Saturating the area will cause the dog feces to become liquid and will then soak into the carpet’s backing. The stain will then get trapped on the back side of the carpet and will keep coming back after the carpet dries.

 

4.  If the stain does not come out completely, you can use the trick the professionals use by performing a heat transfer, just following this link

 

5. The pet product you use should take care of the odor but If after the carpet dries there is still an odor, sprinkle carpet fresh on the area and vacuum.

 

These steps will take care of the majority of problems you will face from pet feces accidents but if the stain persists or the odor is not removed be sure to call your local carpet cleaning professional.

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

 

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

Vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough. There will soon come a time where you will want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned to help keep your home spotless and allergen free and to extend the life of your carpet. Just how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Here’s a rough guide for your home.

The Average Carpet
It really depends on factors like the amount of foot traffic your carpet receives and where that carpet is laid, but on average you should look at getting the carpet cleaned every 12-18 months. This helps to lift all the dirt that gets into the fibers that vacuuming just doesn’t manage. You’ll also brighten some of the darker patches.
If your carpet is in a second home and rarely used, then cleaning can be less frequent. Just bear in mind that while there’s no foot traffic, dust will settle within the fibers.
That being said, if your carpet receives daily foot traffic and sees mud and dirt dragged in, you may want to consider cleaning more frequently.

Cleaning for Families
Families will find their carpet needs cleaning more frequently. You should consider professional carpet cleaning  every 6-12 months, instead. Your children are more likely to drag mud and dirt in or can spill drinks frequently.
Those who have pets should also consider cleaning every six months or so. The pet hairs will get stuck in the fibers and can cause some allergens. There will likely also be dirt and urine accidents that seep into the fibers.

Do you have both kids and pets? Consider cleaning every two or three months. This will help to eliminate pet problems and keep your children safe. You know they love to pick up anything from the floor and put it in their mouths!

So as you can see there is no one set rule for how often you should have your carpet cleaned but keeping these variables in mind mainly how much your carpet is used and your particular family members, and making sure you do not wait too long in between cleans will help keep your carpet investment longer and your home a healthier place to live for you and your family.

What is the best carpet for pets?

                                                                                    

 

LifeGuard Carpet By Shaw is your best choice for carpet 

What is the best carpet for pets is one of the most common questions I have run into in my 30 years of operating a local carpet cleaning company. Hi my name is Paul Dixon Owner of Carpet Renovations, Inc. serving the Tulsa & Broken Arrow Oklahoma Communities with our top of the line carpet cleaning service including pet odor removal and pet damage restoration services. Up until now I have not ran into a carpet that I could honestly recommend to my customers that would assure them if there dog, cat, or other family pet member urinated on it over an extended period of time that we as a professional carpet cleaning company could get the pet urine out. We have been quite successful in helping pet owners with this problem for years but up until now a 100% successful pet odor removal has not been possible with a cleaning alone. We have had to resort to extensive pet damage restoration which would include pad cushion removal, sealing subflooring, and enzyme treatments. These processes work well but can be very expensive to the pet owner. 

What makes Pet Urine in carpet so hard to get out?

From a professional point of view getting pet urine out of carpet is not that difficult. Use a Urine Stain Neutralizing Pretreat along with a low pH rinsing solution and a deep steam cleaning will eliminate the pet urine from the carpet. Where the trouble comes from is the pet urine that is trapped past the face fibers and into the carpet backing and often even down into the carpet cushion. Pet urine gets trapped underneath in the carpet backing and after a cleaning it will continue to keep working its way back to the surface through the carpet fibers, this process is known as "wicking" in the carpet industry.

Why does a pet barrier carpet pad not solve the problem?

When the pet barrier pads became available to the consumer I thought terrific, finally something to help the homeowners not have to replace their carpet padding after pet urine contamination has made its way into the cushion. While this did improvement the problem somewhat it just simply did not resolve the issue completely. Why? Because pet urine still penetrated past the carpet fibers, into the carpet backing and now gets trapped between the carpet backing and top surface of the impenetrable pet barrier padding. Still leaving the issue of pet urine being trapped underneath in the backing and  wicking its way back through the carpet fibers leaving recurring stains and odors even after having the carpet cleaned by a professional.

What makes the new LifeGuard Carpet by Shaw different?

LifeGuard Carpet has truly found the answer for the pet owner whose pets continue to have those nasty little accidents on the carpet. The company used two techniques while engineering this pet proof carpet, the first being a patented stain and soil resistant protection that has been put into the carpet fiber making it very stain resistant and liquid resistant. The second being the backing itself. This is the true secret to their impenetrable carpet. The backing has been patented and made out of Thermoplastic. This new backing is so impenetrable that it has even been put through the ultimate test, a swimming pool was made out of it, filled up and that's right, not a drop of water made its way through. 

Finally, as a carpet cleaning company if we service a customer that has purchased this type of carpet all we will be dealing with is getting the pet urine contamination out of the carpet fibers themselves and guess what, we can do that! If you are looking for a really good carpet and you have pets, we highly recommend LifeGuard Carpet by Shaw
