Carpet Cleaning Recommendations Needed, Cat Urine Stain

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine. I'd rather get the carpet professionally cleaned than have to buy a new one. I don't care if the color...

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine. I'd rather get the carpet professionally cleaned than have to buy a new one. I don't care if the color changes, I just need a way to protect the wood floors and get the odor removed. I've already tried cleaning it by hand, but given the heavy staining on the reverse/bottom size, I'm concerned it'll eventually disintegrate and maybe stain the wood flooring.

Can someone please recommend an inexpensive place to get my small low pile carpet professionally cleaned in Edgewater? Can I take it to a regular dry cleaner or no? This is my first time having to do this.

Thanks!

(My cat is medically fine. He's recently been to the vet.)

  • If you clean or replace the carpet, the cat might go back to peeing on the rug again. Suggest to change the cat box more often or change what's bothering the cat, I.e drop the new flea collar or bell?

  • Mute Mute Me

    Its not fair to other responsible renters with cats to not fix this behavior issue. Can u put the box where the cat is peeing? Have you tried different litters? Are you using two litterboxes for one cat? Cleaning twice a day? Tried feliway diffusers. Ive only had two cats in my adult life and both went outside the box til i prompltly investigated and the problem was fixable.sometimes removing the rug fixes the problem.

Saturday Apartment Search

A friend has a job interview this Friday that might mean he could be looking for an apartment Saturday but he is unsure of his schedule. Do you know landlords or apartment brokers that take walk-ins on Saturdays?

  • My new landlord probably would. Call 773.507.9668. They have several buildings in Rogers Park and Edgewater. They may all be 2 bedroom though.

  • You can also try my landlord. He has an apartment available.

    Planned Water Main Projects in 48th Ward The Department of Water Management plans to install approximately 2,002 feet of 8-inch water main on Kenmore between Bryn Mawr and Berwyn. As part of this project, the east half of Kenmore will be resurfaced along with the repair of damaged parkway and sidewalk.

  • The Walk sign on the crosswalk at Addison and Kennedy is not working. It is the sign which faces east as you cross over the northbound entry to the Kennedy walking toward the station.

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    That sign doesn't make a lot of sense anyway. When working, the walk light is lit when cars have the green light and are turning to enter the expressway!

    The walk light should be lit when cars on Addison have the red light, and a "No Turn on Red" sign should be posted. Eastbound on Addison cars with an arrow would still need to stop for pedestrians.

Angela Kinney, a Chemistry teacher at Chicago Math and Science Academy (CMSA), has been selected by the University of Chicago for their Outstanding Educator Award. Ms. Kinney teaches AP Chemistry, Honors Chemistry and regular Chemistry as well as College Readiness Science.

The Outstanding Educator Award has been in existence for over three decades. First-year students are asked to nominate an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them grow intellectually. “We receive letters back from hundreds of students, inspired by teachers who have changed the course of their lives, who taught them to re-imagine texts, to delve deeper into problem-solving, and to think beyond the border of the classroom in the pursuit of their own education,” said James G. Nondorf, state Vice President of Enrollment for the University of Chicago.

Ms. Kinney’s recognition marks the first time a teacher at CMSA has received this award. Ms. Kinney received her Master’s in teaching from North Park University in 2013. She is currently working on her second degree in biology from Northeastern Illinois University. She was born and raised in Cadillac, Michigan and spent five years in an undergraduate program at Michigan State University.

“I am beyond honored and it makes my heart happy that I have impacted students through science and through being human. This award is an amazing reminder of how important our work as teachers is to our students, and what impact we have on their future,” explains Ms. Kinney.
