I have a very sensitive nose, so just covering up a smell wasn’t good enough for me. I wanted it GONE! Finally, in desperation, I searched for severe urine removal, and the SUN products popped up. I figured, I’ve tried everything else, what the heck? I ordered it, tried it on a single spot, and almost cried in my relief. This stuff WORKS! Truly works. It does leave behind a pleasant mild scent so I gave it a few days before I was really convinced that it wasn’t just masking the odor. I think what I really was impressed with is when I sprayed it on (I diluted in a spray bottle for convenience), I could see where it would react with the urine. It made it easy to find a spot if I wasn’t really sure where it was. I would spray an area and the spots that had a reaction (it kind of foams a little) I would concentrate on.
I have had this for a couple years and have had nothing but problems with it since I got it! Bissell is cheaply priced for a reason! I swore their vacuums off long ago, I should of never caved and got a rug scrubber made by them. This thing has been nothing but a pain, it does not clean at all! when my carpets were damp they appeared clean, once fully dried all stains were still there! And I used their expensive cleaning solutions! Then the dirty water started mixing with the clean water no fix there unless you want to buy a new water tank/bladder I wasn’t looking to spend more money on a piece of junk . Then it stopped spraying – fixed that issue by watching YouTube videos, now it leaks water out from some where that I can’t figure out, during use, and then when I shut it off I get a huge amount coming out from behind a wheel and end up with a puddle on the floor! Do not waste your money on any Bissell product! I know I won’t ever do it again, I’ll stick with Hoover & Eureka!
One possible cause that i haven’t seen here is that you dog/puppy may have diabetes. My puppy was not getting house trained so i took her to the vet to only find you she was very sick. If you still have problems contact a vet/trainer for help.
Rocco & Roxie’s Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator lives up to its name. This efficacious liquid will quickly and easily remove odors, but where it really shines is in handling those super hard stains.
The stain trapper is helpful in removing tough pet stains. Cleanshot Trigger technology is a function that directs the formula straight to the stains, which means that it will be easier to clean tough stains.
The enzymatic action of this cleaner makes short work of even crystallized urine. Keep in mind that “short work” in this instance isn’t an instant solution, but if you’ve got to deal with truly nasty build up an overnight soak can often take care of things.
I have two toddlers. Enough said! lol. I used to grab a wet rag to clean stuff up- which doesn’t work well on carpet or our chairs! One of our chairs (PICTURED) was actually SO BAD that it was crusty and about 15 shades darker than its original color (from spilled juice, snacks, etc.)!! After cleaning it with the Bissel Pro-heat (Pet), which took about 10 minutes, it was back to its original color and looks brand new! It also took out some stains on our carpet that we thought would never come out! Needless to say, we don’t regret buying this, especially at a great price! Very easy to use and set up. We have recommended it to our in-laws and they love it as well.

The following chart outlines some of the most common color variations for urine and their possible origins. The majority of the time, color changes resulting from foods, medications, supplements, or simply dehydration. But there are certain signs that warrant concern.
Apply another towel and absorb the cleaner. After soaking the spot with cleaning, follow the same procedure as with the first absorbing, and put a fresh towel over the enzymatic cleaner to absorb it and thoroughly cleanse the area. Weight the towel with a heavy object and leave it alone.
Ah so glad you’re giving it a try! For coffee stains you can try the ones above, or you can try gently rubbing a bit of soap (not detergent, which is often sold as soap, but true soap, such as castile) into the coffee stain. Lightly dampen the spot with water first. For any of them test a very teensy area first to make sure doesn’t discolor your carpet. Let me know how it works or if you have any questions-paws crossed that it gets the job done 😉

UTIs tend to affect women and girls more, but men and boys can also develop UTIs. These infections are the result of bacteria entering the urinary tract. The bacteria make urine smell unpleasant and cause it to be cloudy or bloody.
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
Bubba’s calls their enzyme cleaner “the pet stain and odor TERMINATOR” because it destroys stubborn urine smells for good. It eats away urine bacteria to prevent re-marking. You can spot-treat with Bubba’s, or add it to a load of laundry to wash dog bets and blankets stained with pee.
7. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH how well this thing picks up hair and carpet fuzz! I would never have thought that a carpet that is 10 years old, is vacuumed once a day with a Dyson and shampooed PROFESSIONALLY twice a year would have any fuzz left, let alone tons of pet hair and let me tell you, this thing brings it up. I did shampoo the room twice over (once through, then go back again) and it was AS FULL the second time of pet hair as it was the first. AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Made me want to immediately do a third time over, but alas, my bad back was out after two times over this extra large room of carpet. It will occasionally leave long strands of matted fuzz and fur in its wake when I am using it. This could also be considered a “CON” because you have to bend over and pick these up all over the carpet. 🙂 Lazy. I know.
Joe Truini: My friend Blackie here is a sweetie pie, but she tends to leave black fur all over the rug. In this case I even vacuumed the rug, but you still can’t get up all the fur, because it gets stuck down in the fibers.
Instead of purchasing expenses products, save your money and make yourself up a solution of rug cleaner in a spray bottle consisting of white vinegar and water (equal parts), dish washing liquid (a few drops). Have on hand hydrogen peroxide 3% – you can put on full strength as it’s already diluted. And some baking baking soda for later. You can also use SHOUT and Spray N Wash from your laundry room.
The key is our product needs to get into contact with the source. We have another product that may be used in conjunction with OdorKlenz Pet Urine Eliminator called the OdorKlenz Subfloor Treatment Kit. You can learn more here: https://www.odorklenz.com/product/odorklenz-subfloor-treatment-kit/
Popular stain removal products often have lengthy labels telling about how they use “enzymes” to digest and break down stains and odors on a molecular level. It sounds mighty fancy, but with a little time and patience you can easily make your own.
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.
“Clean up pet accidents by first blotting up the area and then adding a white distilled vinegar-and-water solution. Blot until it is almost dry. Then sprinkle baking soda over the area and let it dry. Vacuum up the residue the next day.”
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.
2) Vinegar can direct your pet (cat, dog or rabbit), to pee in the spot where it was used. Don’t believe me? Read the human society’s website. If you put vinegar down, you are just going to have more accidents from your pet going in that spot.
Since getting my first pup, I have encountered her peeing everywhere. My solution to get odor out is to spray the spot with a bug spray, not only does it stop her from going back to the spot it also takes the odor out. Seems the bug spray is stronger than urine, the smell goes away in a couple of minutes but, stays longer enough for her to smell and leave it alone, I used Hot Shot flying insect spray. It’s harmful because the dog won’t go near it.
That means keeping your animal in a cage 16 plus hours a day??? Why don’t you simply take him/her outside for a short pee break at intervals??when you wake, at lunch. after work and before bed…it’s cruel to cage an animal 16 hours, why bother having an animal if all you do is keep it in a tight cage
Important. Never use ammonia or ammonia-based products on the carpet to remove pet pee. One of the ingredients of urine is ammonia and your dog or puppy may well be encouraged to re-offend in the same area if it detects the smell of ammonia. Many household cleaner cleaners contain ammonia so be sure to read the label.
Put doggie door that leads to either back yard or garage. If into garage put doggie pads. If you have a patio in back yard also put doggie pads. If gets windy hold pads with small rocks on corners. If you live in apartment,t use doggie gates to a section. & place painters plastic on floor with doggie pads all over. It is alot of work & money on doggie pads but no pee on carpet especially if you live in apt & you have to work
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.
Steam-clean old stains. A rented cleaner can produce steam that’s hot enough to sanitize the carpet, after which the water can be vacuumed up again. Alternatively, if the spot is particularly large or stained, you can hire a professional cleaner to manage it.
If the extent of your pet odor problem is just a general pet smell (not urine), you’ve just encountered a best-case-scenario when it comes to pet odor removal. It’s not pleasant, and it’s still going to take some work to remove the odor from your home, but there are a number of pet odor removal solutions out there to take advantage of.
If I had any doubts whatsoever about this spray, they were gone after the memory foam mattress incident. I love my memory foam mattresses so when my old one had a huge hole eaten out of it by one of my dogs, I chopped it up and made dog beds. Inevitably, someone pee’d on it and I pulled out my trusty bottle of SUN dilute. I had to use a lot because of the foam, the pee went into the foam, every single layer. So I opened the bottle and slowly poured the SUN over the pee spot. I could actually SEE the pee changing colors!!!! Where the pee was in the foam you could see it had stained the foam but the SUN changed it back, so this truly convinced me that something in this takes pee out.
Wipe paws before your pet comes inside. Pets love to explore. This brings them a lot of joy, but also means that they can track all kinds of stinky substances into the house. To prevent this, leave a towel by the door and always wipe your pet’s paws when it comes inside. This is especially important on rainy and muddy days, or if your pet rolled in something outside.[18]
What’s to know about urinary tract infections? A urinary tract infection can affect the bladder, the kidneys and the tubes that link them. Usually caused by bacteria, urinary tract infections are much more common in women than men. This article looks at the different types of infection, how to prevent them, and treatment options, including home remedies. Read now
You can buy washable ones on different sizes off Amazon. I did this 5 yrs ago when we got out puppies an put them by out back door. Even though they go out right before we go to to bed, theres still times one or the other will pee on it 2 or 3 times a week late at night or of im gpne to long during the day. They’re 5yrs old now. I just wash one at a time with only vinegar an air dry while I put the other down. Well worth the $$
Let’s face it: Most of us don’t give much thought to our pee before we flush it out of sight. But the basic details of your urine — color, smell, and how often you go — can give you a hint about what’s going on inside your body.
Just tried this and it really works! It completely removed the smell on carpet that had been repeatedly peed on. We got a dog from animal friends and when I went back to teaching she’s been peeing in the corner area of my living room. It smelled like a kennel. All of the smell is gone!
It’s a good idea to wait until the cleaner is on sale – we have a Vax cleaner which dries the carpet as well – you can use detergent, then a rinse and then do ‘dry’ passes until you are happy that as much water as possible has been removed. We have had this machine for some years and have found it very good.
Keep in mind that carpet cleaners are noisy; some are so loud that we recommend wearing hearing protection. And don’t buy by brand name alone. In our tests, we found big differences from one model to another. For example, Bissell holds both the top and bottom spots in our ratings.
If you’ve tried everything under the sun with no success, we hope we’ve given you the cure for how to get dog urine out of carpet, as well as other tips for pet stain removal. We did our research to help you not give up hope! You don’t have to live with the smell of dog urine, get rid of that dog pee on carpet today.
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! 😀
Thanks justmesuzanne, but I haven’t found any odor problems after treating the area promptly with just vinegar and baking soda. Listerine is a good tip (apparently this product was first invented as a floor cleaner and only later became a mouthwash!!). I would definitely recommend checking that it has no effect on the color of the carpet by testing in an inconspicuous area first though.
Absorb the mess. Use wet towels or paper towels, layered and topped by some kind of weight, to quickly absorb fresh puddles. Run the towels under cool water, then wring them out so they’re damp but not dripping. Place them over the stain completely and put something heavy on top, like cans of food, a pair of shoes, or a book. The moisture helps soak up the urine, while the weight presses the towels down into the carpet. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes.
Use only 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Do not use Hydrogen Peroxide that is higher in concentrate than 3%  Bleaching may occur on some carpets with a stronger solution. Read the label on the Hydrogen Peroxide carefully. The label will state the strength.
Cats love to rub their smell on the corners of couches, chairs, tables, walls, doors, fridges, bench bases, or anything else they can potentially mark with their scent glands (ever see your cat rubbing their face on your legs?). Try wiping furniture with vinegar and washing all curtains, too.
4. Cord is about 12″ too short. Seriously. What size room do they do in the test rooms? Dyson seems to be the only one who thinks you need some cordage to use their product, I am guessing. I think that would be the number one complaint of everyone who owns this cleaner. I know it was the one that I read the most about. In order to do my family room, I have to stop and unplug it one time, so is it a big deal? Again, not to me because I usually have to dump the tank by that time, but would it be a big deal to you? I am not sure of the actual length of the cord, you should just know to expect a short cord. I am sure it has something to do with how you have to wrap the cord vs. how large of a hook they can put on there, or already burgeoning weight of the cleaner, not to add more cord, but again, I am no expert on these things.
