“cat urine wood floor +how to remove cat urine odor”

Most of those which aren’t direct use enzymatic products are made to be used with deep cleaning machines of various stripes. They work great for your carpet anyway, so why not make sure that you get something specifically designed to take care of the assorted feces, vomit, and urine stains that plague many pet owners?

Hi Debbie, oh that is awful! I had a cat who would VOMIT on me while I was sleeping, so I can kind of feel your pain. First off, the blanket – you may want to trash it if you can’t get the smell out. They’ll keep peeing on it if they smell the pee. I’m not a vet, so of course I’m obliged to tell you that you should talk to your vet, but in my experience cats will urinate in the places they’ve gone before because they associate that as a peeing-spot.
Rainbow International’s IICRC-certified restoration crews understand the “tricky” science of identifying and removing persistent, widespread, overpowering, and even mysterious odors. Whether you need pet odor removal services or help with the elimination of other unfortunate smells, you receive uncompromising commitment to service excellence and customer satisfaction.
You can create your own pet odor remover with ingredients that may be in your pantry. Pet parents may find that their sweet fur babies have decided to relieve themselves in various parts of the house. The stench of pet urine and feces that soak into your carpet and furniture can overwhelm your home quickly. Cleaning your pets accidents immediately is essential to preventing odor. Begin by absorbing urine with paper towels before cleaning.
10. Grab a paper towel, and try to blot up as much of the urine as possible. If it’s a large spot and you don’t want to waste paper towels, use a cloth towel or old clothes that can be thrown away. If the spot is on the carpet, stand on the wet spot (remember to wear shoes).
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 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.
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.
The only way to get rid of urine odor is to use a product that has an active enzyme in it. Vinegar will only temporarily get rid of the odor. If the urine gets into the pad of the carpet, you’re sunk. If you replace your carpet, it may be worth while to get a pad that has the plastic cover to prevent it from getting wet. I’ve done this and am happy I spent the few extra dollars.
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.
Re-train your cat. Never yell or punish your cat for urinating in the wrong area. Instead, quickly move her to the litter box. Consistently take her to the litter box and give positive feedback when she uses it. This will reinforce a positive association with urinating and her litter box.
While it’s not a standalone product, if you’ve invested in a carpet cleaner then you’re going to be quite happy with Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor remover. It’s also a lot cheaper than most standalone options.
Jennifer, thank you so much for the encouragement!! I’m sorry about your cat : ( I had a cat pass away a couple years ago and I STILL have dreams about her, I miss that silly girl. I currently have a calico named Meredith and she’s a little hellion but she’s precious. Good luck on your kitten search!

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.
Another option here is to rip your carpet out, paint the floor board with Killz (I did this in a bedroom that had been saturated by cat urine and it worked perfectly) and then lay down a new pad and carpet. The thing is, I know that’s a costlier option, but, if you can afford it, may be cheaper and easier in the long run because cats tend to pee in the same places over and over again if there is any residual smell. Maybe see how the OdoBan works first if you’re hesitant. You could also paint the walls and ceilings with Killz and then paint over with regular paint.
No matter how well-trained your furry pal is, accidents happen. You need to know how to clean dog urine from carpet. If at all possible, clean up urine as soon as it hits the floor and while it’s still wet. Once it dries, the odor will set into the carpet fibers. Place a towel or a couple of layers of paper towels on the spot to absorb the urine. Stand on the towel so it pushes into the carpet and absorbs as much urine as possible. Next, mix up a solution of 2 cups of vinegar, 2 cups of warm water and 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Put solution into a spray bottle and spritz on soiled area. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Blot with a soft cloth.  For heavier stains, sprinkle baking soda directly on the stain. Pour a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water on the area and let it sit for 5 minutes and blot up with a cloth.
It did help me to remove the urine stains and a smell. However, it was awful chemical odor. I’ve checked on internet regarding the Peroxide toxicity…OMG, the vapor of Peroxide is toxic when inhaled. I tried to dry the mattress with a hair dryer and opened all the windows for a night and a day after to ventilate the room. But, still the smell did not go away completely. I wonder if this method of cleaning the surface is safe at all.
Carpet is just not designed to be washable to the degree required to get urine out, if its soaked through the underlay and into the floor below then you have pretty much no chance at all and really you need a new carpet or better yet… a waterproof flooring like lino or tiles.
