If the stain is wet, blot the area with a dry cloth then use a removal product that has absorbent granules.  You may apply these granules directly to the urine stained area. After you have blotted the stain and applied the granules, spray or pour on a pet stain and removal product that contains live bacteria and enzymes. The natural organisms in these products “eat away” the odor causing bacteria. This will permanently remove them from deep in your carpet. This is the best method for removing this type of stain.  The natural organisms do not stop working until they have “eaten away” all of the odor causing bacteria. These products also contain mild detergents which will help to restore the carpet fibers to their original state and leave behind a pleasant scent.

If the stain has dried, do not use the same products that you would use on a wet stain. More aggressive bacteria and enzymes are needed to get rid of dried stains. Special formulas are available that penetrate deeper and are more effective on dried stains. You will need to re-apply within 24 hours.
