My dog pooped on my basement carpet, discovered it after 2 days. Scraped up
the mess and cleaned 3x with Green Machine after pre-treating with tough
stain remover. Stain is gone yet there is still an odor. Are there any
cleaners available that I can use to remove the odor? The carpet is a
commercial grade, virtually no pile to it.
Thanks in Advance,
Search this forum using the word "odor" and you will find several very good
threads including one I started when a mouse climbed into my new Corvette
convertible trunk last winter, got trapped, and then died. With the help of
others on this forum I eventually found a superb product which only does
odor removal, and has no fragrance of its' own. It worked perfectly when
everything else failed. It is at:
and has an enzymatic formula which breaks down and kills the bacteria which
cause the stink. It is sold in my area where rental rug shampoo machines are
offered, since this same company makes a whole line of rug cleaning and
deodorizing products. Good luck!
The first thing I'd try is to dump about 1/2 cup of baking soda on the spot
and rub it in, then vacuum it out. Costs about fifty cents and takes five
minutes, so even if it doesn't help, what are you out?

Sure, for example Simple Solution. I've had no lingering odors and
very simple removal of dog poop for years, with each new Doberman puppy.
My usual mail order company for pet stuff
but there must be hundreds of others.

I've used Urine Gone and Nature's Miracle. Both are good, but the best is
the one called "UNIQUE Pet Odor & Stain Eliminator".
