How do you get rid of the smell of dog urine? It’s a question that many pet owners ask themselves when they find out their dog has had an accident on their carpet. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to eliminate this unpleasant odour from your home. Below, we will go over some helpful tips for getting rid of the smell once and for all!

Steps to clean dog urine smell out of carpet:

-First, use a paper towel or old rag to blot the surface of the urine. This will help soak up some of the liquid and make it easier for you to clean in later steps.

-Next, mix together one part hydrogen peroxide with two parts water (or an eight-ounce solution). Using your application bottle’s wand applicator if possible, spray this mixture over the affected area. The goal is not to saturate but just wet down any dry spots from previous applications so that they can be cleaned more thoroughly in later steps too.

-Now wait five minutes for anything else on top of the carpet – like soap residue – to dissolve as much as possible before moving on to the next step

-Next, use your vacuum to suck up the excess liquid. It’s important that you get as much of this moisture out from under the carpet fibres in order to avoid mould growth. After vacuuming, it may be useful to sprinkle a little bit of baking soda over the area before moving on to the next step. This will help deter any remaining odours by soaking them up quicker. Note: You may need more than one bag of baking soda depending on the size of the affected area!

-Now that you have vacuumed up most of the liquid, it’s time to scrub the area with a dry brush. This will help remove any remaining residue from your carpet fibres and also break down any stubborn adoring compounds left behind on them. Once again, be sure not to saturate or soak wet this section but just lightly dampen it so as to avoid mould growth when all is said and done!

-Lastly, use your vacuum to suck up any residual liquid or dog hair that was left behind after scrubbing. Remember: In order to prevent mould growth, it is important not to saturate the cleaned area with too much water and only allow a small amount of moisture from previous steps to soak into your carpet again when vacuuming.

Additional Tip!

If you are looking for an extra measure of protection against future accidents, use odour neutralizing agents like baking soda sprinkled over the entire floor surface before letting the pet back inside the house. Alternatively, try using doggy cedar mats in high-traffic areas so as to help neutralize any lingering odour before it’s able to take hold.
