How to Clean Dried Dog Urine Out of Carpet

The best way to clean an urine stain is to treat it while the stain is still fresh and wet. Unfortunately, you may not be in the house when the accident happens. Dried dog stains are much harder to remove, especially if they have sat on the carpet for a long time, or if the dog keeps urinating on the same spot again and again.
However, before using some professional help, such as carpet cleaning Clapham services, or replacing the carpet with new one, consider using natural products to clean the carpet. The things you will need are old towels, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, soft scrubbing brush, rubber gloves and a vacuum cleaner.
Here are some simple steps how to get rid of old dog urine stains effectively.
  1. Saturate the dried dog urine stain with plain water. This will dilute the stain, making it easier to remove.
  2. Extract the moisture using old, white towels, then sprinkle a generous layer of baking soda directly onto the stain.
  3. Prepare a solution of 1 teaspoon dish soap and ½ cup of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide, and pour it on top of the baking soda. Put on some rubber gloves to protect your hands from the hydrogen peroxide, and rub the solution into the carpet using a soft scrubbing brush.
  4. Wait for the solution to dry on the carpet, then vacuum it up. If the stain is not completely removed, repeat the process.
If you are unable to deal with the urine stain on your own, consider calling cleaner Clapham to take care of the contaminated carpet. If even the professional cleaning doesn't help, then you should start looking for a new carpet.
