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.
    You can text or call him at 773-510-2271. His name is John.

  • neat....but.....just a note. If you're writing for publication, ensure that you've proof read well. The possessive its does not have an apostrophe. That's for the contraction of "it is," i.e. it's.

  • Agreed! It's its, not it’s!

  • It's not a huge thing, but as it's for publication, check the copy as the last thing done. I have Word set to do squiggly red lines under misspelled words, otherwise as a typist I'd be sunk!

Gunshots in Edgewater

Did anyone else hear what sounded like 5 gunshots just before 2am this morning? It seemed to be around Balmoral and Sheridan.

  • My wife and I were up talking when we heard the shots. We called the police instantaneously. From where we are we could not see anything. But it sounded like the shots were coming from Sheridan and Balmoral.

  • There was also 5 gunshots this last Friday at the same time around Wolcott and Touhy friends said.
