Hi,

Bobby had an accident on the carpet yesterday and the smell of urine is pretty awful. I've cleaned the carpet with carpet cleaner however it still smells really strong. Any ideas?

Carpet cleaner will not work and the threads can be permanently damaged. You need to use enzymatic cleaners (most pet shops will carry these, I have used Johnsons and Four Pets in Ireland) though you can also use a weak solution of BIOLOGICAL washing powder, or vinegar and water. Wet the whole area completely, blot, and let dry then vacuum. If you don;t use an enzymatic cleaner/process, the smell and damaging chemicals remain in the carpet and destroy the fibres and will draw your dog back to wet that area again.
