Chandler AZ,You know how it goes: The minute you turn your back, your pet decides that your new carpet's the perfect place to relieve himself.
You clean and clean, but you can't get rid of that smell. What can you do?
Where'd it happen?
You need to find which areas are soiled, and then re-train your pet to avoid eliminating in those areas. And to do that, you'll have to clean those areas, and clean them well.

- Use your nose and eyes to find soiled areas. You might want to use a black light, which you can purchase at a home supply store. A black light will usually show even old urine stains.

- Clean the soiled areas to remove the odors.
- Visit your veterinarian to rule out medical causes for the behavior.
