Here are some tips to Remove Urine/Vomit Stains
Before removing carpet odor from urine or vomit, let’s remove the offending liquid first as much as possible. Take a whole roll of toilet paper to a spill and step on the whole roll over the spill for at least 30 seconds, you will soak up about 85% of the spill. Flip the roll over and do the same thing, tear off what has been absorbed and throw away, then repeat until you have more moisture. (Even if you need to get another roll.) Remember, this is the FIRST step. Do not put more liquids (spotters, water, baking soda, etc.) on a spill until you have done the T.P.T. (Toilet Paper Trick). Note: This is the first step of many. Spot maybe seen after moisture is gone.
