How to Treat a Pet Stain

Not Cleaning Up a Spill Properly Can Result in Permanent Staining.

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.

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

Apply Spotting AgentWarning: 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 Service with cleaning.

REPEAT Steps 1 and 2If 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 SpotsOnly Use Pet Spotter on pet spots. Urine turns “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 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

I recently hired Van’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service to clean my living room furniture and some oriental rugs and was thrilled with their service. I was very impressed with their responsiveness and attention to every detail as well as the excellent quality of their work. Customer service is not just a marketing slogan at Van’s. They really deliver and I highly recommend them.
