A carpet cleaner should come standard with a pet! Whether it be mud tracked in, drool, body odors or urination, a pet owner will have to clean their carpets! Not all carpet cleaners are created equal and it’s important to use one that extracts all of the water and bodily fluids out of the carpet. There are two types of carpet cleaners when it comes to pets. One is the carpet cleaner that is more of a steamer and cleans the whole carpet, the other is a spot cleaner. The spot cleaner works really well with the urination accidents. Throughout the rest of this post, I will review the cleaners that I own or know of someone who owns one.
My top pick is a bissell.
The BISSELL DeepClean Deluxe Pet 36Z9 is among the most preferred and best carpet cleaners for pet stains.It is light weight, weighing 32 pounds. The cleaner’s innovative clean shot trigger directly formulates the stains targeted for removal. The pet hair collector basket makes things easy by trapping and disposing the debris and pet hair within the basket. This is extremely convenient. The basket detaches and be taken to the garbage can, cleaned out and rinsed clean. On the other hand, the stain trapper collects pet messes in a container and the dual powered brushes with the help of 12 cleaning rows pulls deep dirt from the carpet. Water temperature is maintained constantly while cleaning because of the heat wave technology. This machine is easy to fill with water and cleaning solution in one compartment. The dirty water is then suctioned into another separate compartment. This machine is easy to take apart and clean. The cleaning goes from edge to edge of the machine, making it easy to get up close to the baseboard. One of the most important things to look at is the suction. The suction has to be powerful in order to get the water, cleaning solution and urine/mess out of the carpet.

This is a Hoover. Hoover’s have been around for years and years. This steam cleaner has a powerful name brand behind it. If you’re looking for a carpet cleaner that does more than eliminate pet stains and odors, Hoover Power Scrub Elite is the best choice.
A cleaner made for high traffic areas, the Hoover Power Scrub Elite is always ready to take care of pet hair and dander, dirt, grimes and stains. This machine can be used in three ways: deep cleaning, quick cleaning, and rinsing. To effectively eliminate embedded dirt and stains, you simply switch it to the ‘deep clean’ mode. If you’re in a rush, go for the ‘quick clean’ mode with heat force that speeds up the drying time to 45 minutes, letting you set foot on the carpet in no time. If you like to wash the carpets with soap and water, set it to ‘rinse mode’, or if you want to remove soap residue just rinse with water.
Furthermore, the tank of this cleaner is 25% larger so you won’t have to refill it more often. It also comes with a concentrated cleaning formula that sanitizes and deodorizes pet waste and urine while being phosphate-free and septic safe.

Next is the Rug doctor
Rug doctor is one of the top names in carpet steam cleaning! This one is a hand held one that targets those specific messes. The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is designed to battle dirt and grime, this cleaning machine is a powerful and portable cleaner at your fingertips for all of those spots your full-size carpet cleaner won’t reach. Built with 2 times the suction capabilities and a powerful motorized brush that moves 1,200 times per minute, this spot cleaner deep cleans each carpet fiber and breaks down stains confidently—leaving no dirt or debris behind. It is built with a 10 amp motor for twice the suction power than most other portable spot cleaners. This is huge!!! Suction is the number one key component in carpet cleaning! The powerful oscillating motorized brush can be used on stairs, carpet, area rugs, upholstery and car interior. The Removable, clear water tanks let you see when it’s time to refresh the cleaning solution and are easy to wash. It’s nice to have the upright cleaning machines when cleaning the whole carpet, but I definitely get out my hand held cleaners for those isolated areas!

Finally, a Spot bot
This is a Bissell Spot Bot. This is a must have!!!! You set it in place, over the stain, turn it on and you can walk away. It has a beeping noise when it’s done. It’s sooooo nice because it does the work for you!
This machine is equipped with two preset cleaning cycles, this easy-to-use portable carpet cleaner automatically sprays, brushes, and suctions to remove both surface pet stains and tough, set-in stains. Its unique cleaning foot with DeepReach Technology delivers water and cleaning formula deep into carpet fibers and gently scrubs for permanent pet-stain removal. For ultimate versatility, BISSELL SpotBot Pet features an easy-to-use, on-board hose and tool to clean pet messes on upholstery, stairs, auto interiors, and other hard-to-reach areas. To be honest, I never used the on-board hose. But the rest of the machine works like magic!!! Bissell is donating $10 to the BISSELL Pet Foundation™ with purchase. This machine also comes with a 2 year warranty.

Along with buying a vacuum that picks up pet hair, a carpet steamer/cleaner is a must!
With our furry family members, especially rescue, there are going to be messes and accidents. I don’t want anyone to walk into my house and be able to SMELL that I have dogs. The trick with the wet messes is to get to them before they dry. Shampooing and suctioning back up pet urine when it’s wet is so much more effective than getting to it after it’s dried. When looking for a machine, I first look for great suction and cleaning ability and then I look to see if the machine is easy to clean itself. I don’t want something with too many parts or too many screws to take a part. If that’s the case, I just won’t use it. I steam clean my whole carpet 3 times a year and now that Cinnie is house broken completely, I only have to use my hand-helds when my daughter’s dogs visit! Sometimes Cinnie has a poop accident in the house if there has been several days of rain or thunderstorms. Cinnie HATES water/rain/thunderstorms. So, I ended up using my hand held for more poop accidents than urine accidents. I simply clean up as much of the poop itself with a tissue and throw it in the toilet. Then I set to work cleaning with one of my hand helds.
