How to treat a pet stain...

STEP 1. Cover spill with WHITE napkin or paper towels. DO NOT use colored paper! It might transfer onto the carpet. Be sure to use a THICK stack to absorb as much of the spot as possible.

STEP 2. Blot by stepping on the stack of towels. REPEAT THIS PROCESS UNTIL NO TRANSFER TAKES PLACE. DO NOT RUB!!!

STEP 3. Apply Spotting Agent. Warning: DO NOT use spot removers that you get at the grocery store! They leave a sticky residue behind and may discolor your carpet. Get a bottle of Home Pro Spotter Free from Van's Carpet Cleaning with cleaning.

STEP 4. REPEAT Steps 1 & 2. If the spot does not come out, DO NOT attempt any further action, as you may set the spot and/or damage your carpet. Instead, call us immediately at 352.669.1540. If it is after hours, keep it moist until morning by misting a little more solution or water. Leave a voice mail and we will contact you immediately the next business day.

PET SPOTS:

Only use Pet Spotter on pet spots. Urine turns to “alkaline” from being exposed to oxygen. Pet Spotter is designed to neutralize urine salts.

GET YOUR CARPET CLEANED AS SOON AFTER A PET SPOT AS POSSIBLE!

Even when you do a great job cleaning the spot, urine salts can still be left behind which will be discolor your textile and collect odor causing bacteria. 

Warning: DO NOT use over the counter spotters for urine. They are not designed to neutralize the urine salts.

What Others Say

Thank you for an excellent job o cleaning our home carpet. The cleaning saved me a lot of money! The was so badly soiled that my wife was wanting it taken out and replaced with wood flooring. When my wife saw the cleaned carpet she was delighted, so was I!

P. Patterson, Leesburg Fl

We are in possession of a Chinese needlepoint done on silk that was given to my husband's parents in l938 by husband's father's brother, Uncle Richard, who was a missionary priest with the Passionist Fathers. He served in China from 1935 until he became a prisoner when China fell to communism and was imprisoned for seven years before his release. Over the years, this needlepoint (16" w x 48" long and framed) suffered what appeared to be rather severe water damage running about 15 inches from the top down. This piece had been made especially for Uncle Richard and was something that my husband has loved since he was a small boy. We contacted Vans Carpet Cleaning and they made an appointment to stop just to look at it. With no promise...Ernie took it with him and promised there would be no charge if it could not be cleaned. WELL....Ernie just brought it back to us and it looks WONDERFUL!!! I cried...my husband was speechless!! Ernie tried very hard as he knew the story. I asked him how long it took and he told us three hours with Q-tips!!! The cost $149.99 plus $50.00 to preserve it to prevent any future damage. We would have paid so much more!! And we smile every day as we look at it proudly hanging!! THANK YOU VANS CARPET CLEANING!!!
