    The best thing you can do to prevent pet odors in your home is to treat pet urine stains immediately.

    Add 1-2 ounces of white vinegar to 2 ounces of water. Any type of citrus or white vinegar solution will help remove any pet urine stains from the carpet.

    White vinegar works great because it's clear and is a neutralizer.

    In addition, any type of solution with enzymes can be used to treat pet urine stains and odors. Pet urine is a protein-type stain, and enzymes break them down.

    Cost of topical treatment depends on how many pet urine stains on the carpet, but it can run between $70 and $100 to treat minimal, topical pet carpet stains.

    Deep pet treatment

    Deep pet treatment requires technicians to lift the carpet to clean both the top and bottom. If the carpet padding is damaged, it may also require replacing it. 

    Lifting the carpet allows technicians to clean the slab and padding, treat or remove tack strips, and clean the back of the carpet using an enzyme-based solution.

    Once this is done, the technicians will proceed with traditional steam carpet cleaning.

    Deep pet treatment is more expensive because of the extended process. Cost also depends on how many areas need treatment. Cost can run any where between $150 to $400.

    Most topical pet urine stains can be fully treated with professional carpet cleaning. If there are more than three areas that need treatment, this usually qualifies for deep pet treatment.

    The best way to prevent higher cost is to treat pet stains immediately and get professional carpet cleaning to treat pet stains.
