As all pet parents know, it is not unusual for their furry friend to have an accident or two in the house.
Steph had it easy with greyhound #1, Mac, who only ever had one accident in the house, but greyhound #2 is an entirely different story!
Lots of accidents, lots of messes to clean up!
Steph already had a ONEPWR Spotless GO Portable Carpet Cleaner to pick up spills, but has needed to add a few more tools and supplies to deal with Tosh's frequent mishaps!
Steph has always been very diligent about cleaning up the messes with the ONEPWR Spotless GO Portable Carpet Cleaner. But even with that, we could sometimes still detect an odor. At my suggestion, Steph purchased a UV flashlight so we could "see" the problem areas and concentrate the cleaning on those spots.
While I held the light, Steph used the carpet cleaner on the now visible urine spots. The carpet cleaner took care of any lingering odor, but do to damage done to the carpet from the urine, the stains are still visible under UV light. The carpet is clean and odor free, but the carpet damage can't be undone.
It's really gross to think about all the pee that has been on that carpet, but with the UV flashlight and cleaning tools and products, the damage can be mitigated. Steph's been able to manage any lingering doggie smell by immediately cleaning up the messes.
The UV light has been extremely helpful in knowing where to concentrate the carpet cleaning.
Be sure to follow all safety precautions when using a UV light. The goggles are a must. Don't shine the light into anyone's eyes, pets included.
