removing vomit smell from carpet

Hi Guys,

The little man spewed up in his room last night - twice. he's ok - think its just a 24hr bug.

Can anyone recommend any supermarket available products for getting rid of the vomit smell from the carpet? I soaked up the first batch of vomit with towels. i was actually very proud of my effort until he threw up again in the same place

With it being the baby's room, im worried about using anything thats too strong or anything.

We dont have a wet vac so needs to be something that can be sprayed on and hoovered up with a normal vac.

Thanks in advance

Rich

You'll need to get a cleaner like Valet Pro Enzyme, or what i use personally is AutoSmart BioBrisk, Spray liberally and place a microfiber cloth soaked in the cleaner to sit for a few hours on the area.

Have a look at the pet section in the store for an Enzyme cleaner if you cant get the ones listed above

We bought a Vax carpet washer last year, was only £120, because we have a dog and 2 messy boys. After seeing what it brought out of the carpet we now wash the living room carpet once a month. Best thing we have ever bought Imo. Plus the Vax cleaning solutions are pretty cheap for how long they last. Also a nice surprise to see the carpet pile feeling like new again on the feet.

^ +1.

We've just had a sewerage flood in our basement and several rugs were contaminated.

A thorough wet wash and outside dry followed by several diluted applications of Biobrisk and the job's a good'un! No niff, no nothing.

Ditto my Range Rover which had the doggy smell. All gone.

I'm now treating all the house's rugs and carpets and soft furnishings with a gentle (diluted) spray of Biobrisk as a maintenance item.

Really excellent stuff and much cheaper than the stuff from the vets.

^ This.

I have always found to be the best method in removing almost 100% of the smell.

Washing powder is apparently quite good . Use like shake and vac, sprinkle on and vac up. Can't remember if it's non bio or normal tho.
