How Do I Remove Tortoise Turtle Reptile Pee Urine From My Carpet?


Turtles are adorable with their ancient, wise little faces and slow shuffle. Until their little leggies can’t get them to the turtle bathroom in time and they pee on your carpet. Nice. Before screaming bloody murder and making a dash for the hills, here’s the lowdown on getting that mess up off your carpet.

For urine on a rug or carpet, blot – never rub – to absorb as much of the liquid as possible, then cover with a generous sprinkling of baking soda. Baking soda (bicarbonate of soda is its fancy name) is a miracle product, and it’s worth investing in a Costco-sized crate of the stuff for multiple stain-related emergencies. Let it sit for at least an hour before vacuuming up.

If you’re still left with more bird DNA on your carpet than you’d like, mix together a half cup of hydrogen peroxide (3 percent) and one teaspoon of ammonia (use a clothes peg for your nose); apply to the affected area with a rag and leave to do its thing for thirty minutes, then blot dry.

For a final rescue remedy, saturate the area with club soda (the fizzy will help loosen and lift any leftover discoloration) and blot dry again.

If you’re still in dire straits and the above hasn’t quite rescued you from turtle tinkle, give the experts at Stone Surface Specialists a call at 801 856 0164. Our professionals will have your carpets spick and span in a jiffy!
