“cat pee smell in carpet +dog pee smell”

Carl, I just bought a house and the carpet looks great but reaks of cat urine, I do not see where the cat peed. Can I saturate entire floor and tha will take care of it? Also is it safe or do I need to wear mask or something, just want to make sure it’s safe.
Once the area is clean, make it unattractive and/or unavailable to your pet and the appropriate bathroom area attractive. As long as your pet can smell their personal scent, they will continue to return to the “accident zone.”
Of course any cleaner needs to be used properly. Most enzyme cleaners come in a spray bottle. This is deceptive, because just spraying a light layer of enzyme cleaner over a urine stain will not result in complete cleaning of that spot. Cat pee wicks, and unless the enzyme cleaner completely envelopes all of the cat pee, even it won’t work. “Spraying” doesn’t work. Dousing, pouring, and soaking are required when cleaning up cat urine.
When Mrs Clean is not busy managing her house cleaning company or running her kids back and forth to their events, she enjoys experimenting with natural and non-toxic cleaners and learning new techniques to remove stains.
My husband tried steam cleaning with “distilled viniger, equal amount of water & some lavender oil” a recipe he got from Google! I came home 3 days later from out of town, not knowing he had done this and the smell was horrible when I walked in. Thought the dogs had pee’d and come to find out it was viniger!!!! We have white’ish Berber carpet in LR/DR….stains, well, still there! Is it because of the Berber? Does anyone have any other suggestions for me? The stains are because the dog is big, can’t bathe him everyday!! Any suggestions would be graciously appreviated. Thanks in advance 😉
My doggy has had frequent accidents since we got her. I feel your pain! Instead of caging her at night, I started training her to sleep with me. I just put her leash around my ankle. I realized quickly that she wouldn’t tinkle on the bed, couch, or anytime she is leashed to me. My vet suggested this and it’s done wonders for my furry baby!!
A: To get rid of the smell of mold, you must first locate the origin of the smell. Throw out items that hold mildew spores, such as cardboard, paper and old fabrics and upholstered furniture, and thoroughly wash the area using a water and bleach solution. Leave an open baking soda box in the area to eliminate any leftover smell, and use a dehumidifier to prevent moisture from collecting in the air and creating more mildew.
Technicians trained in odor removal through an IICRC approved instructor are taught the four general principles of eliminating unpleasant smells. They first attempt to locate and destroy the source of the smell. In some cases, like during fire and smoke restoration, this may be too difficult to do before cleaning the area. Once the source is destroyed, the technician will thoroughly clean any surfaces or items that were affected by the source. While carpets are often a primary spot for odors to take root, furniture, clothing, and drywall may also take on the scent if they are exposed long enough. These surfaces must be cleaned to prevent the smell from coming back.
An excellent product gets rid of the odor quickly, completely, and permanently. Depending on the severity of the urine stain, how long it’s been sitting out, and its location, you may need to apply one or more times. The best urine remover is the one that requires the least applications and breaks down every last trace of urine.
My dog took a long time to potty train – almost 9 months! I took her to training school, but you could consider bringing a dog trainer into your home to provide individualized attention and training. Also, if you’re not dealing well with chemical carpet cleaners, you could consider a natural-based product. But it’s always recommended to test a carpet cleaning product on an area that’s not visible to make sure it works with your carpet and doesn’t discolor or damage it. Good luck!
Today’s video will discuss an effective, all-natural remedy to remove urine odor and stains. This way, the pets and children can learn and grow naturally and their accidents can be effectively and quickly cleaned up.
Re-wet the spot with water. After you’ve lifted the towel, pour a small amount of cold water over the spot again. Start pouring just outside the perimeter of the stain, slowly moving toward the center. This will prevent the water from spreading the urine out into an even wider circle. Allow the water to work through the stain for about a minute.
I actually like Nature’s Miracle as far as pet stain and smell removers go. You can get it in different strengths. If You’re finding that it’s a tough stain, you might want to try the version made for cat urine. Cat urine generally sticks around more than dog’s, so the kinds made to get rid of cat urine are stronger because of that.
You may have to use this on the same stain a couple of times before it comes up completely. Some unhappy customers say not to expect miracles from the product, claiming it did nothing in the way of helping lift their carpet stains. Other unsatisfied reviewers mentioned the odor of this solution was too strong or unpleasant.
Remember to always do a spot removal test on a portion of carpet or upholstery that is normally not visible. These are suggested treatments only and COIT can’t be held accountable for any damage sustained by use of the treatments in this spot removal guide.
Hi Mary. Question: I have black oriental rugs which have been doused with cat urine. Will the peroxide fade them? As expensive as they are, I am afraid to try without an opinion. Thank you. Lynn in FL [email protected]

There are many simple ways for the job. You can place a piece of charcoal next to the spot or directly on it. The smell will go away over time. Sunlight is also an easy way to remove odor but you might need a few days for it to go away.

Cats add so much joy to our lives, but the stains and odors that come with being a cat parent often bring frustration. Fortunately, making your own pet stain remover from simple ingredients can help you keep your house clean and fresh. DIY stain removers are safe to use around your pets (and usually cost less to make than store-bought cleaners). From urine to hairball to vomit stains, homemade cleaners can effectively remove the stain and the odor that sometimes lingers.
These stains were deep set and months old – and still smelled to the point it was uncomfortable being in the bedroom. You could still get the urine smell in other rooms of the apartment. The stain area was approximately 3×6 including the perimeter. We used three bottles mixed to highest recommended concentration on the stain area itself one bottle with a less concentrated mixture on the perimeter. As other reviewers have said, it worked quickly. The smell was pretty much gone soon after saturating. It even seemed to get better as it dried. It’s now been over a week after treating the carpet with SUN and there is no urine odor in other rooms of the apartment and the bedroom is being comfortably used as a bedroom again. When the bedroom is warm or when you’re really giving the bedroom stain area the *sniff* test, you can get a whiff of odor. I’ve just ordered two more bottles and plan on to retreat the area with normal concentration mixtures. If they do any further magic I’ll update. We could just as easily have left things as they are and been satisfied, but we figured the first treatment was so effective, why not see if we can totally eliminate the odor.
Hi I have a russian blue and I breed her, she has been good not excellent but manageable. Now that the kittens are bigger something came over her and she started urinating the couch (the kittens to)… Uuuf I took the cushion out and I washed it with vinegar and detergent that didn’t do it so I soakted it again in woter with white vinegar … One more after that … I don’t know how to get the smell out. Now don’t say neuter I have my breeding permit and all pedigree papers and I go to shows… So no offending OK. Thanks upfront for help. 😀
Yes your mom is right but if you follow the instructions above you will only have to smell it once more, rather than having the smell constantly. I would recommend you air the room if you can as the smell can be sometimes deceive where the cat has urinated then follow the instruction above
The enzymes also destroy the pheromone in the urine stain. This is something I personally have never smelled, our noses can’t, but while vinegar may rid the urine smell, it will not destroy the pheromones. Also because my husband owns a carpet store, I can tell you a lot of times people clean the carpet, but if the urine is still in the pad underneath, or the sub floor, they are chasing their tails (pun intended) you need to be sure the pad and floor are also cleaned with the enzyme cleaner.
Hi Eric! I just discovered your website and was reading all the comments. I’ve had indoor cats for many, many years. I have probably come close to using every product on the market to get rid of the urine smell in my carpet. I even have a can of “Resolve Pet Expert” carpet cleaner (Kent’s solution to the problem back in February). Yes, Resolve does seem to work at the moment – but it certainly doesn’t last. The white vinegar solution works great as does the hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/dish liquid solution. I really just wanted to say kudos to your response to Kent’s comment back in February 🙂 There was no need for his rudeness so thank you for your response.
If some stubborn soda still remains after you vacuum once, spay a light mist of vinegar and water over it to re-wet the baking soda, and place a dry rag over the area for another hour or two until it dries again. Then vacuum a second time.

For more stubborn stains and aromas, there are several green enzymatic cleaners you can find to spray on your carpet or, if you have older stains to tackle, consider renting a carpet-cleaning machine from a local store. Rinse the tank out well before use and don’t use the chemical-heavy cleanser that’s often sold with the rental. Instead, Bond recommends using a natural cleaner or a combination of white vinegar and water.
I am very surprised at all the good reviews on Odorzout products. Not sure why it seems to work for some and not others. I have the laundry one as well as this all purpose one and I have had NO LUCK at all with using this. My husbands work clothes were the main test for the laundry version of this and it FAILED miserably, over and over. It failed even on minor odors so this is all a waste of money to me. I have recently read reviews of what a nightmare it is to vacuum up from carpet and floors if you don’t have a strong shop vac and I can see where that would be the case. If you are desperate it may be worth trying since it seems to work for some.
Add a one-pound box of baking soda to your regular detergent and wash as usual, air-drying if possible. If you can still see or smell the soiling, wash again with an enzymatic cleaner — these break down pet-waste odors.
Like charged media filters, Electrostatic Precipitators use electrostatic charges to safely clean air and neutralize odors. As air is pushed through many static prone fibers, electronic cells charge airborne particles and capture them inside of collector plates. As electrostatic precipitators dont require filters, you dont have to worry about replacing the filters. Simply wash the collector plates and insert back into the air purifier to receive fresh, clean air.
