Why are pet vomit stains on carpeting so difficult to remove?
There’s nothing worse than coming home to pet vomit all over your carpeting. Not only is the actual pet vomit disgusting to remove from your carpet, but it can often leave some serious carpet stains. Pet vomit stains are highly acidic and can even break down the fibers of your carpeting. Pet vomit is truly a combination stain for carpets as it contains protein, acids, and other types of partially digested foods.
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. However, these DIY carpeting cleaning methods are seriously dangerous to your carpet. Only use professional products on your carpeting. Remember, carpet is an expensive purchase and should be treated with professional carpet cleaning products.
Pet vomit carpet stains are serious carpet stains and require professional products like Bio Oxy Stain Remover to thoroughly clean the stain and the pee smell due to the proteins involved.
Tips for preventing pet vomit stains in carpet
One solution to preventing pet vomit stains on your carpet is to only allow your cat or dog on non-carpeted areas of the house. If you have an outdoor pet, only allow them to come in the kitchen. Or, if you have an indoor pet, consider investing in those little pet doors to mark off carpeted rooms. These pet doors are awesome ways to train your pooch to stay on non-carpeted areas.
Another way to housebreak your dog to prevent carpet vomit stains is to take your dog to a training center. Oftentimes dog training can last from a week up to a month. This is often a one-time cost if your pooch picks up on the training the first time around.
