Why Your Home Needs Reliable Pet Odor and Stain Removal
Pets in the home can be one of the biggest causes of odor problems in the home. Has your pet left scent marks of urination or defecation on your furniture, carpet, or floors? If the answer is yes, you are going to need a strong pet odor and stain removal system.
Methods to Avoid
The last thing you want to do if you have pet odors already in your home, is to clean the urine odors from carpet with a steam cleaner. Many people make the mistake of using this machine to clean floors and it does more damage to your carpet and the odor and stains will probably not go away. Instead, the heat will permanently bond the odor in the stain into the fibers.
You should also avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals such as vinegar or ammonia. These chemicals do not cover or eliminate the urine odor effectively. The use of these chemicals can also encourage your pet to go back over the same area and mark it with more urine.

You are going to need the proper products to get rid of pet stains and odors. There are many products on the market to choose from when it comes to you pet urine remover. With the proper cleaning supplies, you do not have to sit and blot a urine spot or try to extract it on your own with a carpet cleaner.

3. Detergent-based method
