If you smell some odor from your carpet, you can sprinkle some baking soda over the carpet and vacuum it.

The Second Tip: Clean spills and spots immediately. When you have a spill, immediately blot it with a white towel carefully and gently then apply appropriate cleaning treatment depends on the type of spill.

Apply this solution to the urinated spot and let it dry and vacuum clean. If you have mad spill, you can scrape the caked part and then follow the same procedure.

The Fifth Tip: Deep clean from time to time. You need to deep clean your carpet regularly. However, if you prefer to keep your carpet in fresh and brand new look, you may be better off not doing deep cleaning that often. Before you begin deep cleaning you need to vacuum the carpet thoroughly. Then spray or sprinkle mild detergent on the carpet and deep clean according to the instruction of the steam cleaner. After you finish, make sure to allow air to pass through the room easily to dry the carpet. Do not walk on it while it is still wet, if you have to do, clean your feet and walk in bare feet.
