Pet soiled carpet

So what is the best pretreatment before a cleaning for carpet. I'm new to the business in the great northwest. part of my motivation is my two dogs and one is a puppy. go figure the puppy hasn't learned much yet.

pet stains

I do mostly commercial work but i have a puppy too and i just cleaned my carpets and presprayed the urine stains with h2orange2. It's a hydrogen peroxide and orange oil product we use in our cleaning business. I let it dwell for 15 minutes then used my normal prespray, aggitate,dwell and extract with an acid rinse. Stains gone!!!! This was the first time i tried it on carpet. We use it in restrooms as it's a EPA reg. sanitizer. The manufacturer info says to use it on any water safe surface including carpet as a prespray or in your extractor.
I'll try it on some commercial carpet next to see if it works better than the stuff we've been useing for the past six years.

For mild odors I use chemspec's KillOdor Plus as a topical spray. Spray the whole house at 8 to 1, dell time 15 min, then extract. You WILL need defoamer on board.

I use a product called PeeRad its an oxidizer/oder remover and made
for cat urine. It works. Comes in powder form, mix with hottest water you can flood the area. Let dwell 30 minutes (or longer) extract with
water claw. Then use an encap cleaner for the last step. I think it
has enzyme digesters in it to. If it does then for those to work
you would have to let it dwell more than 30minutes.

Sanitizing your carpet would make a great difference, as not only would it wash away all the dirt but also kill all the germs that could possibly spread deadly diseases.

Pet stain removal from carpets
First, blot up any liquid by putting towels or absorbent rags over the spot and stepping on them. Start with gentle pressure and increase it up to putting your full weight down. Change to fresh rags or towels, until no more liquid comes up.

For fresh stains, apply a bacteria/enzyme digester from a pet store, following the directions - it's the only way to deal effectively with both the stain and the odor. Bacteria/enzyme digesters work slowly, so leave the solution on as long as the directions say. Urine has probably penetrated into the carpet and pad, so use enough solution to reach as far down as the stain. Apply the solution, put plastic over it, and step on the spot several times until the area is well saturated. Then, leave the plastic on the whole time the digester is working to make sure the spot doesn't dry out.

Old or dry stains are hard - sometimes even impossible - to remove, but try the bacteria/enzyme digester. If it's a popular accident site, the bacteria may produce enough ammonia in the course of breaking down the stains to create a super-alkaline situation that interferes with its own action. In this case, you may need to neutralize the spot after the digester has been working for about four hours. Mix a solution of one cup of vinegar to a gallon of warm water. Rinse the area with this solution and apply a fresh batch of bacteria/enzyme solution.

If the stain or odor remains, call a professional deodorizing specialist. A complete cure will probably involve cleaning the entire carpet by extraction and replacing the pad underneath, if not replacing the carpet.

Pet stains

I didn't realize there are so many solutions available. At lease there something we can we at home ourselves and not have to hire someone to clean the carpets.

The very best for pet urine removal on carpet is a product called OSR by Pros Choice. It is by far and away my favorite and you can even flush the padding with it if you have a strong portable or truck mounted system.
