My dog had an accident. What do I do?

We are often asked by our customers the best way to clean the carpet if your dog has an accident.

STEP 1: Use paper towel to soak up dog urine;
STEP 2: Use a mixture of 1/2 water and 1/2 white vinegar (neutralizes acid in urine), then soak up with paper towel after 1 minute;
STEP 3: Sprinkle baking soda across the entire damp area, let stand for 24 hours; and then
STEP 4: Vacuum.

Hope this helps and always try in a hidden carpet area first just in case!!
