Urine naturally has an odor that is unique to everyone. Urine doesn’t usually have a strong odor. You may notice that your urine occasionally has a stronger smell than it normally does. This isn’t always a cause for concern. Sometimes strong or… Read More
The liver, similarly to the kidneys, is responsible for removing toxins from the body and helping it to digest food. Infections and diseases of the liver can produce high levels of ammonia in the urine and the accompanying pungent odor.
I have a 25 yr old satillo tile with concrete grout floor. I have always had a variety of animals in my home and for some reason this has been the place where the accidents happen. I have tried all kinds of things that appear to work but then the smell comes back. Especially in the damp winter time. I have a 23 yr old macaw that does have some respiratory deficiency in the house so I can’t use anything that will harm him.
We love our four-legged friends dearly…but not so much the stains and messes they leave behind. We can’t blame them really-they don’t come into the world knowing they have to go outdoors or in the litter box every time they have to go potty! There’s no way to avoid the mess, no matter how well trained your friend is, but by making your own cleaners you can avoid lasting stains and extra money spent on store-bought stain removers.
We are trying to remove cat pee smell from a couple of rooms in a house – what would you suggest to use a general cleaner – for tile floors and wiping down furnitures items (that are not cloth or carpet)… Should I spray a solution on the lower part of the walls or if I kilz the walls would that help? My son kept a couple of cats for a family member and they sprayed everywhere – we are gutting the room but have to treat the tile floor and walls and some of the furniture that we want to keep… Thanks so much !
1. Cleans and fluffs the carpet better than two national PROFESSIONAL carpet cleaning chains that I have used. I have 10 year old white carpet (purchased prior to adopting this goofy cat) and was about to replace it due to it being matted down (husband works from home and refuses to take off his shoes when he enters and leaves the home) and also due to it just being soaked with this cat’s urine for the last 8 years now and this really seemed to do the trick to help us put off buying hardwood floors for this area for several months now!
Put a washable cover on furniture. Your pet may have proudly claimed an armchair or a spot on the couch as their own. This special space, or any other furniture where your pet lounges, will need frequent washing to keep the odors at bay. If your pets spend a lot of time on your furniture, it’s a good idea to invest in washable covers like slip covers. That way, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of vacuuming and scrubbing your furniture. Instead, just throw the cover in the wash.
Your urine characteristics can also function as an early warning system for serious health problems including urinary stones, infections, kidney problems, metabolic disorders, diabetes, pituitary disorders, and even tumors
you said that you are treating your dog with Crananidin and Cosequin every other day. And that “Nutramax pharm. makes the products. Is this a mail order pharm. And did your vet come up with this solution on taking this or did you research on the internet.
That has also helped tremendously in reducing the amounts of hairs being scratched off/shedding all the time and if you raise a puppy up with regular vacuuming, yes, you read it correctly VACUUMING (*With the brush attachment, on low, check it first on yourself and go around the ears, never on them!) they will absolutely love it as adults, especially on their tummies! They will come running when they hear you start up the vacuum as they think it’s time to be brushed!
It can be used in conjunction with a carpet cleaning machine, but we suggest direct application of the product to the carpet, then use the carpet cleaning machine to extract it from the carpet. This allows for better and longer contact time between the source and the OdorKlenz product.

Large volumes of concentrated alkaline salts and strong odors that come from bacteria feeding on the waste products contained in the urine can make professional cleaning necessary. The alkaline salts can create a very high pH environment (10 – 10.4) and destabilize normally stable dyes that cause bleeding. This is very difficult to address without steam cleaning and specialized cleaner.
Act quickly! If you can get to the wee whilst it is still wet, the job is so much easier. If you can remove the majority of the urine right away, bacteria do not get a hold and it is the bacteria which cause the worst of the smell, not the urine itself.
I know this was a long review and if you made it to the end with me, thanks! I just love this product. The people at SUN really stand behind it and make shopping with them great. They are fast to respond to any questions I have and very helpful. This product is something I will ALWAYS have in my house.
Thank you so much for this recipe. I used the vinegar and baking soda mixture to remove urine stains and strong odors from my son’s carpeted room. It worked wonders! Both our puppy and our 2 year old are potty training and have peed on his floor several times a week. I made this concoction today (had to half it due to the size of my spray bottle), and I added 4 drops of lavender essential oil too. It worked like a dream. There’s a hint of lavender smell in his room and nothing else.
Important: Bleach is very dangerous for our skin. During the whole process of preparation and applying the bleach use rubber gloves in order not to harm your skin. It is also recommended to apply some greasy hand cream on the hands before wearing gloves.
I didn’t have any fresh urine stains, but there is a spot that was my puppy’s favorite before he was fully house-trained. This product has a pleasant smell, and definitely gets rid of any doggy odor. I put two bottles in my carpet steamer, and the whole house smells great now. I tried it on a spot where my cats had a spat (cat spray!), THIS PRODUCT WORKED. The only reason it’s not five stars is because the bottles are TINY.
Some people have an abnormal connection between the intestines and their bladder. This can cause problematic urinary tract infections as well as smelly urine. Another sign to watch for is if gas or even stool-like substances appear to emerge from the urethra while urinating.11
How do you apply the enzyme treatment in conjunction with the water/vinegar or peroxide, or do you not? Do you dilute the mixture after three months before applying the enzymes? How do you best recommend applying the enzyme mixture? What about essential oils? Would you recommend applying essential oils to the water vinegar or peroxide mix?
•PROFESSIONAL STRENGTH – This is a Grade A, professional-strength odor neutralizer that binds to and absorbs odors at the molecular level! This pet odor and stain remover is commonly compared to Natures Miracle Stain Remover.
Some foods and medications, such as asparagus or certain vitamins, can cause a noticeable urine odor, even in low concentrations. Sometimes, unusual urine odor indicates a medical condition or disease, such as:
The following list of conditions have ‘Urine odor’ or similar listed as a symptom in our database. This computer-generated list may be inaccurate or incomplete. Always seek prompt professional medical advice about the cause of any symptom.
Get into a regular cleaning routine. Cleaning can be a drag, but the best way to stop your home from smelling like your pets is to clean regularly and stay on top of messes. A good cleaning routine will include regular vacuuming, floor washing, laundry, and dusting. For the best results:
Also, not a “defect” but something you need to know if you’re like me and tend to lift up the handle to pick up the whole machine (like you would w/ a vacuum cleaner) to lift it over the power cord, when I lifted the handle on this carpet cleaner the water container lunged out from the machine! It seems that this is quick release mechanism! Good to know, at least the water tank didn’t have very much in it so nothing spilled, whew, that was exciting, and not in a good way!
An independent laboratory recently conducted multiple tests of our P.U.R.T. process to determine its effectiveness in treating pet urine odors and stains. In tests against the most common odor sources found in dog and cat urine, this study found that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.9% of pet urine odors from carpets. To go one step further, the study also tested Chem-Dry’s ability to eliminate the bacteria that can be found in pet urine. When used along with our HCE (Hot Carbonating Extraction) cleaning process and a sanitizer, the study found that P.U.R.T. removes an average of 99.2% of the bacteria from pet urine stains in carpets.
CR’s take: For carpet cleaners, this is where it gets tricky: Both of the higher-performing Bissell models on this list have “pet” in their names. This one does, too, but that’s where the similarity ends. Unlike the two Bissells covered above, the Deep Clean Deluxe Pet is only so-so at cleaning and worse than that at leaving a dry carpet behind, scoring a Poor. It’s also several pounds heavier when full of solution—36 pounds, so it can be a bit unwieldy. The ironic part? It costs more than our two top Bissell picks, proving that the price-quality relationship doesn’t always bear out.
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even the old accident stains that might have been missed if a dog did a “ninja-pee” behind the bookshelves or something. Baking soda is nature’s odor remover, and teamed up with vinegar, does a great job at getting rid of odors!
The smell in the grout has not returned. I find some products mask the odor for a while, but this one is not a mask. The company owner told me that the formula separates the bonds of the molecular compounds that give off bad odors. There is a fresh smell to this product that lasts maybe a few hours. Then there is no smell at all.
Stain isolators… isolate stains. This keeps the urine or other serious issues out of your normal water tank. While it might not be a problem in many situations, you’ll quickly find that frequent usage without one is going to take some ammonia and a rag to make sure your entire machine doesn’t start to reek.
This thing will clean your carpet – no doubt about that – especially if you use the Bissell chemicals with it – but some really annoying things that you find out while you’re using it. (1) The solution tank cannot stand up by itself as it has no flat side on the opposite side of the inlet. You cannot put the tank down after putting any liquid in it as it will spill. Ya, really. (2) 1 hole on the plastic body is too small for the screw. You can try to tighten it but you risk cracking the plastic housing or stripping the screw head or both. (3) It should take nothing to add a mechanism that lifts up the brushes off the floor when using the attachments. I wound up with a burn spot on my carpet due to the brushes continuously hitting the same spot for about 10 minutes while cleaning the stairs. (4) The water is supposed to be heated, but I checked it with my hand and could not tell the difference from when I first put it in. This is an OK machine that could be a terrific machine with just a couple of tweaks.
The OdorKlenz pet urine eliminator is your number one source for safe and effective urine and pet odor removal.The carpeting and flooring in your home often fall victim to pet accidents that need to be tended to quickly.

OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator is ideal for use on carpets and rugs where pet accidents have occurred. Use with an extractor or let it dry, then brush and vacuum it out. For liquid and vomit, spills try our OdorKlenz Absorbent.

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.
As not only the carpet but also the floor can become smelly when you have pets, it might be a good idea to purchase a steam mop. By using steam and fragrance discs together you can eliminate the odour on the floor as well.
What I like most about this product over all the others is it does not have an overwhelming scent that competes with the urine. Instead, it has a clean almost non-existent smell and really seems to get rid of King PeeALots odor. My nose couldn’t be happier and for now the tiny murder machine is confused as to why his carpet doesn’t smell like contempt anymore.

By doing this, you can help to make sure the stain is taken care of quickly and efficiently rather than making things worse. It might be tempting to just pull out your expensive carpet cleaner for pets, but you can really minimize the chance of permanent staining by doing this.
If ammonia-smelling urine occurs every once in a while, it is rarely a reason for concern. However, if ammonia odor is accompanied by pain or symptoms of infection, including fever, it is time to see a doctor.
From sweet smelling pee that shrieks of uncontrolled diabetes to urine that smells strongly of ammonia due to urinary stones or musty due to liver trouble, the reasons for the change in the smell of your urine are numerous. At times, an unusual urine odor may also stem from underlying medical causes such as dehydration, UTIs, or maple syrup urine disease.
However, if you do want to use the hydrogen peroxide, make sure you only ever use 3% solution and that you always check for color-fastness on an inconspicuous area first as it could bleach the fibers of the carpet, leaving a permanent light patch as a reminder of the accident!
When your pooch leaves a puddle on the carpet, he also leaves behind an obvious stain. The soiled area might be less noticeable on a darker rug, but you’ll still be able to see it and even smell it if it’s not thoroughly cleaned. Vinegar is useful for removing dried dog urine stains from carpets because it . While vinegar alone isn’t effective when the stains are dried, teaming baking soda and water up with vinegar will get the job done.
I have used Listerine on all kinds of surfaces with absolutely no ill effects. I keep a spray bottle of it on hand to use as a way of keeping my cats away from areas where I don’t want them. It can be lightly sprayed on furniture, carpet, drapes, hardwood floors and just about anything else with no problems. It is more effective as a fabric freshener than Febreze and other products of that nature. In a fine mist bottle, it makes a good air freshener. It is much better used this way than in your mouth! LOL! 😀
Start off by taking all of the furniture apart – pillows, blankets and the like – and vacuuming everything thoroughly. If the sofa and chairs have removable slipcovers or cushion covers, take those off for washing (details later). Get into the crevices of the furniture as deep as possible to remove all the hair, and flip the bed mattress to get both sides. On the floors, make sure to get under all of the furniture and in the corners, where “hair bunnies” tend to gather.
If you don’t have hydrogen peroxide on hand you can substitute it with a laundry spray stain remover. Check the bottle. If it says ‘Oxy’ anywhere on the label then it probably contains hydrogen peroxide. Preen, Sard, OxiClean etc.
Try using a carpet shampooer. Fill the shampooer’s reservoir with water, and add the liquid cleaner to the compartment. Press the lever and vacuum the entire carpet. Allow the carpet to dry for at least 24 hours, and then vacuum.
I just read this on the Humane Society’s website: Avoid using steam cleaners to clean urine odors from carpet or upholstery. The heat will permanently set the stain and the odor by bonding the protein into any man-made fibers.
Then pour on Natures Miracle or The Simple Solution. (commercial products that can be purchased in most pet stores). Here is the trick, you must cover more than double the stained area when you pour on the product to ensure it soaks into the padding. Then walk away and allow to soak in and dry.
I ran into a problem with my one dog going pee in the house and I knew something was wrong because I let her out every hour. So I ended up taking a urine sample to the vet and she had crystals in her urine which causes great pain in their bladder. The vet said it was like little pieces of glass in her bladder. I am treating her with Crananidin and Cosequin every other day because when so took it every day her poop was like soft serve ice cream. Works great no more pee in the house. Consult you vet for proper dosage. Nutramax pharm.
