“cat urine out of carpet +dog urine smell”

I read through all the comments and was definitely enlightened. Thanks for all the information. Although if Jenn refuses to snip snip…then that’s her choice, why do we become so angry when someone has an opposing opinion of our own?
Training Opportunity: Odor Removal Technician is a one-day seminar that will teach technicians how to find out what the customer’s odor problem is without causing them any embarrassment and give them the results they’re looking for. This course covers light, moderate, and heavy odor situations – how to find the source, estimate the job, and provide effective removal.
Finally, your cat might not be fond of their litter box situation. It could be because they don’t like the type of litter you’ve made available, because they don’t like the box style, or because the box isn’t clean enough. As always, examining when this behavior began and linking it to changes in your cat’s environment is an important part of stopping the behavior.
Clean furniture. Pet smells love to hide in furniture. Your cat’s special chair may be host to all sorts of irksome smells. The type of furniture will dictate the best cleaning method, but you should always check the care labels before cleaning to make sure the piece isn’t dry clean only. Care labels marked with an S mean don’t clean with water, and X means dry clean only.
Water damage odors generally have a mildew smell from wet building contents. And the longer a structure is exposed to moisture, the more powerful the odor becomes. Water damage situations such as toilet overflows or sewage backups only compound the odor problem.
I have a dog door in my house. Although my dogs use it regularly, one of my dogs is afraid to go out when it is raining heavily, and has peed on the carpet a few times at night without my knowledge. I didn’t know about it until it had dried. Please don’t judge. Nobody wants their pet to pee in the house. It’s so frustrating and embarrassing.
There are definitely some tricks to making sure that you’ve handled pet stains and odors in the best way possible. There are also some homemade remedies which people recommend and some of them are super efficacious.
Pets are great, but they don’t always smell that way. Even the cutest cats and dogs can make your rugs and furniture stinky if you’re not vigilant. Worse, even the best pets can have accidents on the rug.
It does have some shortcomings: this product works best on fresh stains. If you’re moving into a former hoarder’s abode with crystallized urine and ruined floorboards then it’s not going to be sufficient but if things are in decent shape right now and you want to keep them that way it’s perfect.
Un-Duz-It Unleashed features a unique combination of oxidizers, enzymes, and odor encapsulants that completely eliminates odors caused by urine, feces, and wet animals. It also effectively wipes out unsightly yellow staining from pet urine.
Areas of cat urine that have dried and previously gone undetected can be found with the aid of a black light. The cat urine stains will fluoresce under the ultra violet light in a darkened room. Hand held black lights are quite inexpensive, usually costing between $15 – $25. To save the expense of a black light you can always use your nose to detect the source of the odor. Put your nose down close to the carpet and sniff away.
As for rented apartments.. mmm keep cleaning.. or ask your landlord if you can replace the carpet with something else. Its in their interests to say yes really because if it smells of pee when you move out, though they will take your deposit, they still have to get a replacement put in..
It does not discolor. You can safely use the product on majority of fabrics without risking discoloration. Harsh chemicals is what causes these issues, and those would be dangerous to dogs as well (thereby marking a product not pet-friendly).
Some IQAir air purifiers are similar to this. Using a blend of activated carbon and oxidizing elements, the carbon filters in the IQAir HealthPro Plus and MultiGas GC air purifiers can adsord and oxidize odors, eliminating them from your indoor air. While these filters aren’t typically as loaded with carbon as many of the Austin Air or AirPura models, the specialized carbon blend typically targets a broader range of odors and chemical vapor molecules.
Spray enzyme cleaner over the area. Non-toxic and effective, enzymatic cleaners work by breaking down stains into their basic elements, eliminating the compounds that create smells and stains. Using an enzymatic cleaner is the best way to help break down the proteins left over from the urine, removing the smell as well as the impulse for the pet to urinate in the same spot again.
If you’re faced with set-in stains or smells you can’t get rid of, it may be time to call in a professional, as sometimes spot-removal isn’t enough, Hatch said. “Unfortunately, urine doesn’t just stay at the top of carpet, it soaks into carpet padding and backing and can even soak into the sub floor,” he said. Spot cleaning can only get the urine at the face fibers of the carpet, and to truly remove the bacteria and the odors they can create, you’ll need a professional, he said.
Crate training seems to work with most dogs. Dogs want to near you, so let them do that – put the crate right next to your bed. This will reduce whining and stress. Try to make it as positive an experience as possible – special treats or a favorite toy that they can have only in the crate. Limit water intake before bedtime.
By successfully eliminating deep-set messes, you’ll also be able to get rid of the harmful bacteria and the foul odors they can cause. Find the best pet & dog odor eliminator & removal solutions for your home today at Petco.
I would like to thank you for this amazing remedy! I have two male dogs that were having a marking war in my living room and I like everyone else here had used countless products to get rid of the smell to no avail. The final straw was today when I cleaned my carpets and could smell nothing but the urine smell in that area. Then I looked up “natural home remedies for pet stains” and came up with your website. The solution of peroxide and dish detergent on top of the baking soda hasn’t even dried yet and my house smells WONDERFUL again. I will no longer be embarrassed to have people over to hang out!!
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to put Stinkers! to the test on several occasions, and I wanted to share how well it performed in these five ultimately stinky situations (spoiler alert: AMAZING!):
If you wish to keep your cat away from certain areas that are at risk from your cat’s urination such as sofas, beds, rooms etc then I recommend a product called SSScat. It is a motion activated spray which delivers a noisy burst of air to frighten your cat away from an area. It is completely safe and harmless.  Now watch this video of SSScat in action. You can usually purchase it on ebay.
Add 2 cups of white vinegar to the spray bottle. The white vinegar will soak into the spot, break down the stain and even remove the oldest, toughest stains, including urine and blood stains. The white vinegar also kills odor causing bacteria, which will leave your carpet and other areas of your home free from urine and feces bacteria. The strong scent of the vinegar will assist in removing the odor in combination with the other ingredients.
I have three Scotties. Cushing’s disease will cause a dog to pee a lot, drink a lot of water and you should check with your vet for diagnosis and medication. Currently have one that has it and previously had one that had it. Evidently it is fairly common in certain breeds. And urinary tract infections will also make doggies pee more frequently.

Thanks for the comment, Art Lover. However, I have two 12-year-old cats that I’ve had since they were tiny kittens. I had them both declawed and they’ve never had issues with their litter boxes or their feet. I won’t start a debate on declawing here, because those can get ugly, but I highly recommend declawing.
If this is the option you must do, Kilz is a paint that will block stains and odors. If you have a serious problem and have to repaint or replace flooring, Kilz will block the urine odor completely, so you can start fresh.
1) You might discolor your carpet – baking soda & vinegar. Think about it. It’s a paste that can interact with the chemistry of the carpet. Don’t believe me? Start reading through the comments. There are some people who say it works, but do you want to be one of the readers who was left with ruined carpet?
Accidents happen. After all, dogs are only canine. And even the best-behaved cats sometimes think outside the litter box. That’s when it’s up to us, as their true best friends, to have the right product on hand to restore peace, love and carpets. In the case of pet urine and other tough stains and odors, Rocco & Roxie stain & odor eliminator is the one to reach for. Its professional-strength bio-enzymatic formula goes to work at once, releasing active bacteria that feed on ammonia residues left behind in pet urine and other organic materials. So not only does it get out the stain, it eliminates the odor deep down within the carpet at its source-which discourages re-soiling. The result: Stains and odors are completely eliminated, leaving carpets, floors, furniture and other surfaces fresh and your beloved pet. Out of the dog house. Of course, it works on much more than pet urine: any organic stain-vomit, feces, all the gross stuff, whether human or animal-lifts out of rugs, carpets and upholstery easily and completely. And not only is our stain & odor eliminator child, pet, it’s so safe on carpets its earned approval from the trusted carpet and rug institute (CRI). Many of our customers tell us this is the most effective stain and odor product they’ve ever used — in fact, we guarantee it! Not just the stain, but the stink. From stinky yellow pet urine and feces to vomit and other organic spills, our professional strength formula tackles them all.
Diana, that’s a really good question. What is the material? For canvas tennis shoes I’d try soaking them in hot water and a cup of OxiClean Versatile, then running them through once more on a hot setting and letting them air dry, preferably in the sun. For something like suede or leather, I would wipe down the surface of the shoes with a clean cloth and a mixture of white vinegar and water. I would clean the inner sole with an upholstery machine like the BISSELL Little Green ProHeat.
The other part of the problem is that wherever an animal goes to the bathroom becomes THE bathroom. Even if you clean it up, the scent remains as a reminder that this is where to go and an invitation to others to join the pee party.
Many have stated they are not fond the Rocco and Roxie cleaning smell. Cat Pee Smell is at the top of my offensive list which also includes items such as robot phone calls to my cell, McDonald’s no longer frying their apple pies, hair in the shower drain, and taxes. When attacking cat pee, you have to neutralize the chemical composition of this awful smell. The enzymes in Rocco and Roxie deliver this result as best as I have seen. The after smell does not sit well with all. I use Rocco and Roxie with Oreck dry carpet cleaner every two months to clean my rugs and carpets. I admit I tire of the cleaning smell but have found a solution many may want to try.

Another way to use vinegar and baking soda, a staple in the green cleaning arsenal, is to mix them together in a spray bottle, said green cleaning coach Erinn Morgan, author of Picture Yourself Going Green. She suggests mixing one cup of distilled white vinegar with one cup of water and two heaping tablespoons of baking soda. Shake it up, spray it on the carpet, let it sit for five or six minutes, then gently blot it up with a fresh cloth, she said. The mixture will stay potent for a few months, so you might want to mix up a batch and keep it on hand if you have a puppy.
Great article Sally, definitely covers this topic in-depth! However, we’ve got some carpets in a rental apartment that have old, and I mean really old, and now somewhat crusty, pee. What would you recommend as the best carpet cleaner for old pet urine?
