    Steam clean them.

  • I was thinking the same thing. We use vinegar on the first run then steam on the second run. Such a shame landlord was to cheap an inconsiderate not to do before you moved in.

    The Rug Doctor rental machines are awesome- so much so we purchased one from Costco!

    Can you lift this up at all? If you can, spray, and then use a veg. brush, and scrub the area. You may have to blot, and do it again. When this is fine with you, then blot again, and spray with a nice smelling scent. J.

    Report it to management and tell them that it should have been gone before you moved in. There is a potential for bacteria, mold or mildew growing under the carpet which is a health hazard, especially if you have kids or allergies. If they won't do anything, call the county or city and find out what your options are. I have used vinegar with great success, just make sure you get enough on there to soak into the padding and the flooring underneath. Once the vinegar finally dries the vinegar odor will go away, and then check to see if the urine smell is gone. It will also take care of any bacterial and fungal problems in the carpet and below. I would definitely go to management first.
