We all love our animals but they can present a challenge when they are puppies or kitties in training. Don’t worry –  a pet accident doesn’t mean your carpet is ruined  Just follow these simple steps to take care of life’s little accidents:


  • Act fast – the sooner you treat the stain the better the chance of complete elimination
  • Scoop and blot – don’t rub any of the stain into the rug
  • Clean the area with warm water and a detergent solution using one quart of warm water and one teaspoon of mild non-bleach laundry detergent
  • Next apply a solution of two tablespoons white vinegar mixed with a quart of water to neutralize odor
  • Blot up all excess moisture to avoid mold growing beneath the damp carpet.
  • Once the area is completely dry, vacuum to refresh fibers.


We work with and highly recommend The Clean Team located in Kingston, MA for any type of rug cleaning!
