“best way to get rid of dog pee smell -remove raccoon urine smell”

If you are treating large outdoor areas or entire houses for cat urine odor, you might want to consider purchasing the hydrogen peroxide at a higher concentration and diluting it. It would make each batch even cheaper for you. The peroxide can be bought in strengths such as 12%, 20%, 35% and 40%. The 35% solution is often called “food grade”.
[…] Ah, the joys of potty training children and pets! If struggling to remove urine smells and stains from surfaces like a mattress, all you need to use is dish soap, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to scrub it out. […]
I have good cats but I rescued one who proceeded to mark a room where the previous owners cat smell was. I tried all I could to re-train her, get rid of the smell but it just got worse & worse. She’s been re-homed.
Leslie Reichert, a self-described “cleaning coach,” editor of Clean Green Living Magazine and author of The Joy of Green Cleaning, prefers to hit dog urine stains with a few squirts of hydrogen peroxide. Spray the stain, let it bubble up (that means it’s working) and let it sit for 10 to15 minutes before sopping it up with a rag. “Be sure to spot test first to make sure the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t discolor your carpet,” she said.
Eric, thanks for the suggestion, I will try that. As for the black light, I have three cats so not 100% sure which one has pee’d. But I suspect it might be my oldest cat, who is 19. She does have slightly lowered kidney function due to her age, and I take her to the vet 3-4 times a month to get additional fluids. So you may very well be right about her urine being diluted such that I can smell the stain but not see it with a black light. Just surprises me I wouldn’t see at least an faint outline, especially on items that smell strongly of urine. First I tried a small, bar shaped blacklight that came with one of the cleaners. I thought perhaps it was not powerful enough so ordered another blacklight that is like a flashlight in design and supposed to be much stronger. Neither seems to show any stain, either on the blankets or on the canvas bag. Strange, but I guess I will just trust my nose to treat the areas!
Well, my puppy started pottying on my new carpet after a few months, for some reason. I clean the spots by first soaking it all up with paper towels, then using OUT. I also used my carpet cleaner machine. However, I went back with the black light and the spots are still showing up just as bright. I’m sick. What to do?
A smelly room is embarrassing, and it can prevent you from enjoying your living the way you should. The secret to deodorizing a room is first getting rid of the source of the odor, which you can do with thorough cleaning. After that, it’s just a matter of absorbing any lingering odors and choosing your favorite air freshener to make everything smell great again.
Locate the source of the odor. It’s easiest to clean fresh stains that are still damp, since you can lift much of the urine from the affected spot. However, you may also come across dried stains. In these cases, the same procedures should be followed, even though the urine has had more time to break down and soak into the surface.
Kierstin, thanks for your response. And the mention of our daughter. She’s clean right now and we’re hoping it sticks this time, as difficult a thing as that is. She’s in her early 20’s and I’d really hate to see her life go to waste to a horrible drug.
The new fragrance in your home is wonderful until midnight when everything turns back into a pumpkin. The urine smell comes back and you look and now you have this ugly stain even though your carpet is brown. You now have a urine smell in your carpet or worse. Pet urine in carpet can be very difficult to remove and the land mines smell is just as bad.
The service told me they would come back out believe it or not – for a 3rd time. (Free of charge) They are sending someone else. I guess they are going to blacklight everything again and if nothing is showing up on the surface, they will perform some kind of moisture testing. Told me that if it is in the pad of the carpet they are able to pull up those areas and replace sections of the pad. Really hoping the carpet doesn’t need to go. Nothing is visible and it is certainly much better, but I am ready for my house to smell fresh again. (and be sanitary of course) Hopefully the third visit will be a charm. They have actually been very understanding – thank goodness.

LR, I would give it a good soak in soapy water with some vinegar, then I’d rinse it really well, then I’d give it a soak with some enzymatic cleaner and let it air dry. As for not being able to see pee on dark objects…. that’s new to me. It makes me wonder if your cat has very dilute urine. It’s possible it has some kidney problems. Might want to see a vet.
Most cleaners and odor removers work their best if you attack the problem as soon as it happens. The quicker you get to the disaster the better off you’ll be. Enzymatic solutions are particularly useful this way since fresher material will find the material more “palatable” in the immediate aftermath.
Soak up as much of the urine as possible: Place a thick layer of paper towels on the wet spot, and cover that with a thick layer of newspaper. If possible, put newspaper under the soiled area as well. Stand on this padding for about a minute, and repeat until the area is barely damp.
I think he wants it to be known that this is his home, because the urination is a battle that can’t be won. He is healthy, we’ve taken him to the vet to get it checked out, but he has saturated our basement. We moved in September, and the basement has concrete floors, and while cleaning the carpeted area yesterday, I realized that the carpet is held down by duct tape, and there is no padding underneath. So I’m wondering if the smell is mainly in the concrete? The other cats don’t urinate out of their box, but Lucien has something against the basement. I’m putting a second litter box in the basement, but I’m thinking I have some serious cement clean up ahead of me
