If you have a pet, namely a dog or cat, invariably an accident is bound to occur. Neither of my pet’s tug on my pant legs after an accident and lead me to their accident! But the question is, if your pet has an accident on your carpet or rugs, do you have insurance in a bottle?
Few of us enjoy paying premiums for car insurance but if we are involved in an accident, we sure are glad we have it.
The best “pet insurance” is an enzyme which is effective on urine, vomit and feces. Since the shelf life of an enzyme can be years, a small purchase of a quart or gallon of an enzyme unused is a small price to pay for one of the most effective means of treating organic matter like urine, vomit and feces.
Pet Accident Treatment Procedure
The first step to any pet treatment is source removal. In the case solids, scrape onto a paper towel the best you can. A large spoon is often an effective utensil. For urine accidents, the rule is blot, blot, blot!
The 2 most common mistake especially with urine treatment are:
- Aggressively, scrubbing the affected area which leads to the abrading and flowering of carpet fibers. Even if the stain does come out, the fiber distortion to the rug can be highly noticeable and can look as bad or worse than the discoloration!
- Using a liquid other than an enzyme which pushes the urine deeper into the backing, pad and subfloor. Paradoxically, the worst procedures are the use of house carpet cleaners and spotting machines that flood the carpet without enough power to draw back the solution.
So, here’s the insurance: When urine dries, it forms crystals or salts. These salts activate in response to high humidity and temperatures. Thus, in the summer time, urine small complaints are at their highest.
So, here’s the insurance: Liberally apply the enzyme to a blotted we accident or to the dried pet accident. Literally, glug on the enzyme for too little of the product through spraying will NOT be effective. Then, simply wait for it to dry. Do not blot or attempt to dry with fans. This often may take 24 hours.
If the odor persists, repeat the treatment.
