Removing Pet Stains with Little Effort Cleaner Spotbot

Updated on April 17, 2012

Pet Stains and how to get rid of them.

If you have a pet you probably have pet stains from time to time that need immediate cleaning. We're going to mainly talk about how to get pet stains out of carpet, which includes blood stain removal. I found a great little machine that does wonders and I will honestly say that it gets the pet stains out each and every time.

Having a pet, mainly our dog, we come up against several pet stains that she tends to spread around. Tiga (our dog's name), has bad gums and this means we also have to have a tool or formula that works easily for blood stain removal. We have had her to the Vet and she has had quite a bit of work done including tooth removal to at least lessen the bleeding of her gums, but bleeding from her gums still occurs.

We had tried several different sprays in the past, still have a collection of them in the cleaning cabinet as a matter of fact, but nothing seemed to work very well on getting the actual pet stains out. We have our own full sized carpet cleaner and this machine did a mediocre job and is a large monster to set up to remove one small pet stain.

So I did a bit of research on the internet and looked around to see what was recommended for making a quick and easy job of removing pet stains. I found one great small machine and have been using this carpet cleaning machine for over 2 years now, it is the Bissell SpotBot Pet Stain removing machine.

What other types of Pet Stains?

Besides the blood stains, the Bissell SpotBot Pet Stain remover also works splendidly with urine and even fecal matter. I know this from personal experience, used it many times in the final year of one of our girls who has since passed away. If she had to stay at home for an hour or two she often couldn't hold it and we came home to some serious cleaning.

In the beginning we used the Bissell SpotBot exactly as directed, with the exact amount of cleaner that was recommended and of course it worked splendidly that way. But, we noticed over time that the suds seemed to be adding up, that could be partially due to the fact that we also did a spot spray just until we had the motivation to get the machine out. Don't misunderstand me, it's not that the machine is large and cumbersome to bring out, it's just that at times we're tired and don't feel like it immediately.

The great news is you can just put warm water in the tank and use your pet stain remover spray on the spot instead of putting solution into the SpotBot's water tank; and guess what, it still works fabulously. So, for those lazy days there is no measuring required, just spot spray and use the hand tool.

The SpotBot has more than just the hand tool, but to use the brushes on the underside of the machine you do need to put solution into the water tank. When you use the machine with the rotating underside brushes option you simply position the machine on top of the stain and the machine regulates the amount of solution mixed water to apply and works on the pet stain for you, you can just sit back and watch.

We've had this machine around two years and continue to use it whenever needed, it's still going strong. As to the blood stains from our poor gums girl, hate to say it but sometimes it can be days til we get the machine out and yes, even after days the machine still takes the blood stains out. You can't do it with just water, but when you use the wand you can just do a quick spot spray and use the magical hand wand and voila; works for me every time.

In case you are wondering which spray we use on the spots for quick jobs, we're using Zep Pet Stain Remover at this time; we've used others in the past but tend to like this one best, works for the stains we need to get out. If you care to see some of the culprits that brought us to the need of the SpotBot, see our Greyhounds here.

SpotBot pet stains remover still working like a charm.

We still use this little machine to get our stains out from our beloved pet. She has bad gums so there tends to be a few blood spots where she lays. Must say this SpotBot does the trick every time still, we've had this machine over a couple of years now and it's still going strong.
