Tips from Clean Results on getting throw up out of carpet.

It isn't fun to talk about, but vomit is a natural occurrence. And it can be a real pain to clean up, especially when it happens on your carpet. If you have pets or young children, you're probably familiar with the sight and smell of vomit on carpet. But don't worry, there are a few simple steps you can take to remove vomit from carpet and get rid of the smell.

Steps to Remove Vomit from Carpet

  1. Act quickly. The sooner you clean up vomit, the easier it will be to remove the stain and smell.

  2. Scrape up as much of the vomit as possible. Use a spoon or spatula to scrape up the vomit into a trash bag.

  3. Blot up the remaining vomit. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up as much of the remaining vomit as possible. Be careful not to rub the stain, as this can spread it and make it more difficult to remove.

  4. Apply a cleaning solution. There are a few different cleaning solutions you can use to remove vomit from carpet. One popular option is a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water. Another option is a commercial carpet cleaner. Apply the cleaning solution to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes.

  5. Blot up the cleaning solution. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up the cleaning solution.

  6. Rinse the area with water. Use a damp cloth to rinse the area with water.

  7. Blot up the water. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up the water.

  8. Repeat steps 5-7 as needed.

  9. Allow the carpet to dry completely.

Steps to Remove the Smell of Pet Vomit from Carpet

Once you have removed the stain from the carpet, you may still need to remove the smell. Pet vomit can have a strong odor, but there are a few things you can do to get rid of it.

  1. Apply a baking soda paste. Mix baking soda with water to form a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area and let it sit for several hours. Vacuum up the baking soda paste once it is dry.

  2. Use an enzyme cleaner. Enzyme cleaners are specifically designed to break down organic matter, such as vomit and urine. Apply an enzyme cleaner to the affected area and follow the directions on the product label.

  3. Call a professional carpet cleaner. If you are unable to remove the smell of pet vomit from your carpet on your own, you may need to call a professional carpet cleaner.
