If you have a pet, and have carpet, it's inevitable that you will have a stain from said pet at some point. Liquid stains should be blotted up as soon as possible using paper towels or rags applied with gentle yet firm pressure. Try not to scrub or wipe initially. A shop vacuum could be used, but be prepared to replace the filter in the vacuum. Depending on the size of the stain, use a carpet shampoo and scrub brush, a powered wet-spot vacuum, or a scrub brush and a cleaner such as Greased Lightning or OxiClean. Several cleanings may be required. The point is to thoroughly clean the area, as the scent will not only be a nuisance, it can also trigger the pet, or a visiting pet, to go again in the same area.
