Get a steam cleaner (rent a rug doctor) and a blacklight. Best to do at night - Go to the area where you think the pet urine is at. Turn off all the lights and shine the black light on the area. You will see the urine stain as a greenish glow. Mark it with chalk. Turn on all the lights. Then put hot water in the rug doctor and add 1 cup of distilled white vinegar. Go through the chalked area and steam clean it really good. Then let dry. The vinegar smell dissipates when the floor dries. Go through it with the black light again - if the greenish glow is still visible, do the whole process again.

After the pet urine is dealt with and the area is dry, put hot water in the rug doctor again and add one capful of washing machine laundry detergent in your favorite scent. Go through the area to wash and deodorize the carpet.

My family and I would normally just use a natural cleaning agent for urine as readily available cleaning agents could tend to cost a lot. Well, we're more of saving more and spending less so here's what we do to create our own natural cleaning agent:

1. Combine one part hydrogen peroxide and two parts water. Let the mixture sit on the spot for five to ten minutes before blotting up the moisture.
2. Add in undiluted white vinegar. Soak the area completely and let it sit for several minutes before blotting dry.
3. Mix in baking soda. Cover the area with baking soda and let it sit for a few hours. Vacuum.

However, you must remember not to use Hydrogen Peroxide that is higher in concentrate than 3%. Bleaching may occur on some carpets with a stronger solution. A small spot test in an inconspicuous area is advised before proceeding. Always read the label on the Hydrogen Peroxide carefully. The label will state the strength.
