Dog lovers know the benefits that a pet brings to their lives. But, as all pet owners know, accidents happen from time to time.
Some of our furry friends only occasionally slip, whereas others urinate on the carpet more frequently — especially older pets. These smells contain a strong ammonia odor that can stink up the entire home glendale.
So, how can you go about removing dog urine odor from your carpets? Try these proven methods for cleaning up stains and salvaging the carpet.

Clean up any urine that's still wet. If the urine dries, it stains the carpet and increases bacteria growth. To best remove the stain, place a layer of several paper towels over the wet area of the carpet. Walk on the paper towels so that they absorb as much of the pet pee as possible. Removing wet urine reduces urine smell.
Neutralize urine odor
For new or set-in stains, create a vinegar cleaning solution consisting of one part white vinegar to one part water. Vinegar neutralizes the ammonia smell of urine without fading carpet fibers, making it a good choice for carpet cleaning and protecting your glendale az carpet.
Slowly pour the solution on the stained area of the carpet. The solution needs to reach the lower fibers in the carpet to completely neutralize the area. After allowing the carpet to absorb the solution for 10 minutes, use a layer of paper towels to soak up the liquid.
Once the carpet is almost dry — which could be several hours later — sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers for about 15 minutes, then vacuum the area. This should remove the smelly urine from the carpet.
