    Default Removal of animal carpet stains/odor

    Does anyone have a tried and true - it really works - formula/product that they
    know of - for removing old old pet stains from carpeting that is also old? We
    live in a rental house - and while our dogs have had 'accidents' - there were
    dogs here in the 14 years since it became a rental house and we have tried
    innumerable products to get rid of odor and/or stain. ANY ideas would be oh so
    gratefully accepted. Deb

    Re: Removal of animal carpet stains/odor


    If the carpet is that old, and the pet stains are also that old,
    chances are it's stained into the carpet padding, and the wood under
    the carpet padding. You might want to talk to the land lord about how
    often he replaces carpet. I know most replace it every 4-6 years here
    in Michigan, but I'm not sure if it's a law or anything.

    It sounds like the carpet is really gross, and if it smells still after
    lots of cleaning, I would consider it unhealthy, personally.

    The only thing I have found that truly works and still takes some major
    scrubbing is a product sold at Walmart in the Pet area called "OUT" or
    "SHOUT"... it's in a white bottle with yellow label and dogs and cats on
    it. It's really very inexpensive and the best thing to do is just buy it in
    the big bottle, use it to clean the carpets and floors a couple times. It
    really does work, I've had to use it for cat smells, dog smells and probably
    lord knows what other creatures in THIS house! lol

    I've tried it all... vinegar, baking soda, extreme cleaning stuff, simple
    green, you name it. This stuff is the only thing that has worked.

    Good luck!

    Oh yeah - I am the first to agree on the uck - if it were our home we would rip
    out all the carpet and padding and strip and sand floors under and redo - and we
    have done that before in a house we owned - not because of dogs but because of
    OLD. However - in NE - its not a law - its a whim - and while the lady that
    owns the house is awesome - she lives in WA state and the realty company that
    takes care of it - only does something RIGHT before she comes to visit every
    several years. Thats what they did when she came in November - and replaced the
    shower - which was a blessing - RIGHT before we had 60 for dinner on
    Thanksgiving Day - can we say I wasn't happy...???
    We just keep cleaning and cleaning -and - for a bit - its ok - we use a ton of
    soap and scrub with a good carpet cleaner over and over - and also bleach - yeah
    - and then rinse over and over - its a two day job at least - and then as soon
    as someone walks on it - we are back where we were. We even paid several
    hundred dollars for a professional to come and clean it - and they did a
    terrible job...worse than we could.

    Zero odor - I have tons of it - it just won't kill it - sighs -so - will see...

    We are hoping to buy this one day - its 2100 sq ft per floor - a ranch style -
    with 8 foot ceilings in the basement where my DH has his woodshop - so -
    hopefully we can get it - sooner rather than later and just replace it ourselves
    - which we have done before. My brother is a carpet layer by trade - and a very
    good one - so - we would pay his airfare from Tucson - rent the tools - and just
    lay it...

    Will keep watching for anyone elses ideas - at this point I will try anything -
    I have been known to be so frustrated that I got on my hands and knees and
    scrubbed with Ajax and chlorox with a brush...oh well...

    Thanks gang - you are great!! Keep up the good work.

    Deb
