“best way to remove urine stains from carpet _can you get cat urine out of carpet”

First, thoroughly rinse out the stain with water. Your best bet is to rent a wet vac — they do the best job at saturating your carpet with clean water and sucking up all the dirty water. Make sure you use plain water — it works better than adding chemicals. Tip: Don’t use a steam cleaner! The heat from a steam cleaner permanently sets the stain and odor.
This is a great, all around solution to anything which you might face as a result of your animals lack of training or illness. It’s an enzymatic cleaner which scores top points from us for its ability to be used anytime, anywhere to make short work of even the toughest stains and the foulest odors.
In every case where I made the mistake of letting my neutered cats (which do not spray!) play with the “hillbilly” cats next door (which DO spray, as they are not neutered, nor properly taken to vets ,nor properly parented), the territory-marking foul spray has been effectively neutralized by the RESOLVE foam, using it just like directed on the can.. Ergo, please advise your readers that they DO NOT have to use six different chemicals to effectively neutralize cat pee or cat territory-marking spray…including the so-called need to add anything to the laundry soap when washing cat-sprayed bedcovers or clothing, or towels, etc., in order to get rid of cat pee smells. Been there, done that, too!
My cat peed in the floor register in our hall bathroom and I know this has happened several times and with more than one of our cats. I have thrown everything but the kitchen sink down that register and nothing is helping. I actually think some of the urine has possibly soaked into the exposed wood under the tile, I can’t imagine the steel/tin ductwork would hold on to that smell….it could even be in our furnace?? We want to sell our house and can’t even leave the door open because this bathroom has turned into pee headquarters 🙁 Any suggestions? I’m gonna try the vinegar and baking soda, maybe a paste on the exposed wood/tile area???

Try cleaning without detergent at first. If you find that you’re still not pulling up the stain, ask the representatives at the rental center what they recommend, and try to use as little detergent as possible.
Cover the area while the cleaner takes effect and while it dries. Some pet owners will cover the area loosely with aluminum foil or lay their laundry basket upside down over the stain to prevent their pets from urinating in the area again. It also helps to remind family members not to step or sit on the stain while it dries.
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.
If all else fails or you have many messes you might want to consider renting a rug doctor with upholstery attachment, upholstery cleaner, and odor removers. It can save a lot of stressing out and leaves the upholstery looking new.
You can follow all this up with a a nice homey smell like oranges and cinnamon. Take two tablespoons of cinnamon and some orange peels and simmer them gently in 4 cups of water. This fresh scent will permeate throughout your house.
You can also make your own air freshener by filling a saucepan with water, citrus peels, and your favorite herbs. Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer on the stove to infuse your home with delicious smells.
I wonder if it would help to set up a few hiding spots (boxes with blankets/towels in them) in your room so she has somewhere to hide and feel safe? I would try keeping the box as closed up and dark as possible, with just a cat-sized opening cut into it, and with the opening facing a wall. I think it’d be worth a shot. And if it doesn’t help, you’re only out the cost of a free cardboard box.
Choose a remover with a nice smell that suits both you and kittens. I really like an odor remover that has a mild fragrance, not those fake products that use overly strong smell to cover the odor. I don’t mean all products that have a strong smell are fake but you should be careful when testing them. Fake ones will only fool your nose with a stronger smell but it’ll go away soon.
Trish, the stuff is super pervasive. I’m not sure what the service used as a cleaner, so I can’t speak its smell. The problem is that the urine was there on the carpet, in the pad, and in the subfloor for a long time. It soaked in so it may take several treatments to get rid of it. Especially if they’re sucking the cleaner back up before it has a chance to penetrate the wood. Also, don’t worry about vinegar smell. It dissipates fairly quickly. I use the stuff for a lot of my household cleaning. It’s potent, but the smell doesn’t last.
Just an fyi isolating the cat with a litter box food and water in a mud room/laundry room for a few days has stopped one cat I once had. Also we discovered that when we changed from scented to unscented litter the problem stopped immediately. Declawed cats will always have trouble with the liter because it pains the nerve endings in their foot. You can get cedar shavings which is supposed to help this.
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.
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.
Technicians also have access to several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize the unpleasant smell thoroughly. Every material has its own physical properties that determine which substances to use for effective odor elimination. Trained professionals can find the best product for each material, from carpet and fabric to wood and ceramic. Once the surface has been treated, trained technicians are able to seal the surface to trap what scent does remain. Foul smells are created by airborne particles that can be sealed away for good.
Good for cleaning urine stains, especially with those yellow ones. Can even have effects on old stains too. It saved me from a two-year stain on my carpet. At first, I was just trying to test it but the effect really shocked me. But the remover is not very effective on other types of stain though. The smell removing feature is good too, especially with urine. It has a mild fragrance which will fit most people’s interest.
@Johnny Our vet said that incontinence would occur in little dribbles as opposed to her squatting and peeing a bladder full, which is what’s happening. Anyhow, you may want to post your comment as an answer. Thanks! – glenviewjeff Mar 17 ’14 at 3:10
Head to Petco and pick up some cat urine remover and cleaner to help keep your house smelling fresh. Cat urine naturally attracts the attention of other felines, and unfortunately produces some rather foul odors. Further, your kitty will tend to reuse the same spots making the problem worse. There may be multiple reasons that your furry friend isn’t using their litter box such as an infection, arthritic joints or an internal issue that your veterinarian will need to diagnose. In the meantime, you may still be wondering how to get rid of urine smell from your furniture, drapes and clothes. Luckily, Petco has you covered with a full range of cat urine remover and cleaners to eliminate that funky odor.
Take a brush to upholstered furniture like couches. Fill a bucket with warm water and several drops of liquid dish soap. Swirl the water to create suds. Dip a soft-bristled brush into the suds and brush the entire surface of the furniture. Wipe with a barely damp cloth and air dry.
I would suggest politely going to your neighbor and discussing your concern. Your neighbor might be “nose blind” and not realize the smell is so potent and traveling into your home. You could try different air fresheners with odor eliminating properties but it’s best to remove the source of the offensive odor.
Put the object in plastic. I use clear dollar store packing tape and large black lawn bags. Inside, place the activated charcoal (chunky) in something that’s going to let it be breathable….a fine netting (what we use to wrap birdseed in for weddings). Spread the charcoal out flat inside its netting on a paper plate, a piece of plastic, whatever is appropriate. Use as much as you want, place the charcoal inside the netting in various places, with the object, all sealed in the bag. Let it sit, without opening for an amount of time that you decide, depending on how large or dense the item is.
