If you have children or pets, or if you are sick, it’s possible that vomit may end up on your carpet at some point. Not only is this disgusting but if not treated, the stain and smell it leaves behind on your floor may linger for days, weeks, or even months.

It may not be an ideal situation, but if you want to deal with it correctly to keep it from becoming a bona fide disaster, follow these steps Cleanpro in Fairbanks has prepared for you.

How to Clean Up Vomit from Your Carpet

Prepare Yourself

Needless to say, this won’t be a pleasant experience, which is why you need to prepare yourself. Put on gloves, clothes that you don’t mind ruining, and even use a mask to cover your nose and mouth.

Remove the Vomit

Get rid of the excess with a spoon or ladle depending on its size. Be careful not to make the stain bigger or to spread it into the carpet’s padding. Pat the area with paper towels so the remaining vomit can be absorbed. Have a plastic bag handy so you can dispose of the mess properly.

Mix Up

Next up, mix vinegar, water and dishwashing soap in a spray bottle. Use this mixture on the affected area and blot it thoroughly with cloth to lift off any stains. Repeat this process until there are no signs of vomit. Once you’re done, use a dry towel to absorb the moisture.

Cover the Area with Baking Soda

Even though you may have gotten rid of the unsightly stain, it’s probable that the smell has lingered on. In this case, sprinkle baking soda generously and let it sit there for 15 minutes so it can absorb the odors. Then, vacuum it all away!

Let It Dry

All you have to do now to leave this unpleasant occurrence behind is to let the area dry thoroughly. Open up doors and windows and turn on fans to allow proper ventilation. Wait until it’s dried up entirely before you walk on the area.
