 Male rat scent marking

I recently adopted a young male rat. He loves to run around my house. The thing I’ve been concerned with is his scent marking. Whenever I sit with him on the couch, I put a towel down. I never let him run on my carpet. My previous rat scent marked the hell out of my room and my room mate banished him to the garage. Is there any product I can use on my carpet to remove rat urine smell? Right now I only let him run around in the bathroom because I can fully clean the tiles. I hate restricting him to a small bathroom for exercise. If anyone knows of a product I would greatly appreciate it.

Any carpet cleaner that will work on cat or dog urine should work for rat urine as well. I’ve heard white vinegar also works but I’ve never tried it on carpet, only on hard floors.
