Why are cat vomit stains on carpeting so difficult to remove?
Cat vomit stains are highly acidic and therefore highly dangerous to your carpeting. Acid can damage the fibers of your carpet and sometimes even eat through your carpet to cause the texture of the fibers to change. Cat vomit stains are combination stains, as they not only include the acid from the vomit, but also the pieces of partially digested food.
Combination stains are difficult to clean and do require professional cleaning products to fully remove safely. Some blogs with a natural focus may urge you to try do-it-yourself methods such as pouring salt or other household materials onto the stain. Never use vinegar, salt, sugar, or other household products on a carpet stain. Only use professional products on your carpeting when cleaning cat vomit stains. Remember, carpet is an expensive purchase and should be treated with professional carpet cleaning products that preserve the texture of your carpet.
Cat vomit carpet stains are serious carpet stains and require professional products like Bio Oxy Stain Remover to thoroughly clean the stain and the acrid smell due to the vomit involved.
