How to Remove Vomit Smell from Carpet
Even if the room is well ventilated and you have followed the instructions above for how to clean vomit from carpet, a nasty odour may persist. If this is the case you may need to take some of the following extra steps:
- Instead of letting the area dry, repeat steps three to five, above.
- Use a steam cleaner according to the manufacturer’s instructions to do a deep clean of the stained area. Steam kills germs and bacteria that often result in bad odours, but high temperatures can melt some fabric fibres, so be sure to check your carpet care guide before you start.
- Following the instructions on the label, use a disinfectant to retreat the area and make sure all germs and bacteria have been removed.
- Spray the stained area with a commercial carpet deodorant or a combination of water and a few drops of essential oils like citrus, tea tree, or lavender.
There you have it – cleaning vomit on carpet may not be the most pleasant job, but it can be done. Afterwards you’ll be left with a clean, sanitised, and fresh-smelling carpet to be proud of!
