“dog urine odor removal -pet smell out of carpet”

I’ve used the vinegar/water cleaner, followed by hydrogen peroxide/baking soda procedure for the last several years. We have three labs, and had two cats (one of whom is no longer with us). The process worked well for stains AND odor. Actually, doing the carpet AGAIN as we speak!
My now deceased cat used to be very territorial and marked the perimeter of the house under the ground floor low windows in living room and dining room, presumably to deter raccoons, other cats, and possibly larger predators (we have coyotes, wolves, cougar, fishers, and bear around– so much to his dismay he was an indoor cat and had to defend his kingdom mostly from the inside of the house). Part of the flooring was marble so I could not use vinegar on that (vinegar eats marble, as does CLR). What I found helpful was powdered hydrogen peroxide diluted with a LITTLE bit of water to make a very strong hydrogen peroxide solution (use gloves). It is marketed under various labels including Oxiclean (or Oxyclean, not sure of the spelling). I also use it on soft furniture and on car upholstery as a spot cleaner. I also use it for washing the removable coverings of sofa cushions or clothes in my front loader washing machine for any places where he had “accidents”. However, you can NOT use oxiclean on silk, leather or rubber.
Pick up and wash laundry. Laundry that’s piled up on the floor can start to take on a musty odor, and this can make the entire room smell.[1] What’s worse, wet laundry can be a breeding ground for mold. Collect laundry from all over the house, separate it into loads, and wash it in the washing machine.
Antimicrobial chemicals, aka antimicrobials, are designed to kill microbes.  It has been shown that not all microbes are bad.  In fact, many microbes are good, and help us stay safe and healthy (some hang out in your ears and whisper things like “drink more water” and “do some deep knee bends”). 
The live, enzyme-producing bacteria in Bottom Line digest organic waste and destroy urine odors at their source for permanent odor removal. This non-toxic brand stands up to high temperatures and pH without losing effectiveness.
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.
We have had our dog for 6 months now and have had trouble toilet training him. Our house stinks of urine. We had it professionally cleaned, but it still stinks. It obviously has gone right through to the underlay. What can we do?
This is a great product. I first used it twenty years ago when my parents German Shepherd tangled with a skunk… It solved the problem! I most recently used it when an aging pet had an issue with incontinence… Problem eliminated!
If you have a wood subfloor, remove the nails that keep the tack strips in place. If you have a concrete subfloor, you’ll find that removing the nails will leave large divots in the subfloor, which need to be filled in with spackling. To get around that, simply cut the nails flush with the floor with a multi-tool (e.g. Dremel).
Same issues my friend had. She crated but dog was so unhappy. She finally decided controlling area is best option for her. She put a puppy pee pad in her bathroom suite & dog at least has better option which, while not ideal, allows her to keep her buddy close at night.
The first step in removing the odor of burned food is to open the windows; this lets air circulate. The fresh air comes in, helping the burnt smell fade away. There are several other options that move the process along. A burnt smell is typical when food is seriously overcooked.
Thank you for this site and the work you’ve done on it. It’s very helpful. My little old cat has, for various reasons, has accidents on the carpet. It’s getting better, but I’ve really been thankful for the information you’ve shared, which I’ve used. Now, I’m going to try the apple cider vinegar in the wash to launder the old towels and pads I’ve used. I’m sure that will work as well as the other cleaning tips did. Thank you again!

Whether it be from pet urine or a spill, once you have thoroughly removed all residue and think you have it all, place several layers of white paper towel on the freshly cleaned wet area. Next, weight the paper towel down. I use a large piece of ceramic/porcelain tile, and let it sit for about 48 hours. You will be amazed at what dries up into the paper towel instead of drying in the top fibers of your carpet.
Unfortunately this alone did not do it so I was very glad to find a site that said to sprinkle plain baking soda, a lot, then spray it with a solution of 1/4cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide & 1 tsp Dawn dish soap (multiply it larger areas), use a soft bristle brush to rub it it then leave it to dry well (a few hours). When it is completely dry vacuum it up. Depending how bad the stain/smell, you may need to do this a couple time… but it has worked!!!
It’s a scientific formula that has been proven by lots of users. Guaranteed to get rid of most odor and stain from upholstery, floor, and carpet. The product contains dormant bacteria that’s only become active when touching a food stain. They’ll create thousands of enzymes that can get rid of all the stains deep in your carpet. You can also use it for cleaning laundry, especially apply on tough stains like coffee and tea.
If you catch your cat urinating on your carpet or floor, gently and quickly move him to the litter tray. Don’t punish him as this may increase his stress. Try to reinforce positive behavior. Punishment only causes more stress.
That said, pet odor eliminators are not the only ones to pick and choose carefully. Other items can be just as dangerous, if not more so. Here are a few you need to keep away from dogs, or make sure you buy pet-friendly options:
Rinse the stained area with water and blot using a towel. If you have a hairdryer, try drying the carpet with it for a few minutes.  The vinegar smell may stick around for up to a few days, but then the urine smell will disappear.
A: To remove the presence of gasoline fumes, locate the source of the odor. Once the source is found, blot the area to remove any excess gasoline, then apply white vinegar and baking soda to the area to absorb the odor. If the smell is on clothing or a person’s body, use vanilla essence or lemon juice to remove the odor.
Anyone with small children, pets, or a smoker in the house knows all too well that room deodorizers and air fresheners only mask the smell temporarily and don’t solve your real air cleaning needs. You’re left buying more and more and more to constantly mask offending odors. To gain fresh, clean air, the odors in your home must be neutralized and cleaned completely. Odors like strong cooking smells, chemical fumes, and tobacco smoke are particularly dangerous for people with asthma, allergies, COPD, or MCS. As the air reaches the lungs, these bothersome odors and fumes trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions.
Urine is composed of waste products including urea, uric acid, sodium chloride (salt), excess water and other waste. The immediate odor from urine comes from bacteria that feed on urine. Uric acid crystals (crystalized urine residue) often remain in porous surfaces, and will emit an “ammonia” odor with time. Humid conditions or wetting the surface can also reactivate the odor.
Remove pet accidents from carpet: Mix 1 part water, and 3 parts vinegar. Let it soak for 30 minutes. Mix 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide, 2 teaspoons of baking soda, and a squirt of dish-washing liquid. Shake it well. Spray, and let it soak/dry.
Remove the cushion cover and wash it in apple cider vinegar with cold water — completely saturate the foam cushion with apple cider vinegar as well. It works best to place the cushion outside if possible to allow to dry. There’s something about the fresh air that helps get rid of the smell. Repeat the entire process as necessary. As for the cushion cover, NEVER throw it in the dryer. The heat will lock the cat pee smell in, and you will never get it out. Smell the cover after washing, and if you still smell anything, rewash it. If not, let it air dry.
Open windows. There’s nothing like some nice, fresh breeze air out bad smells. In spring, summer, and fall, open windows throughout the house to create a breeze that will blow fresh air in one window and bad smells out the other.[9]
Because it is comprised of such simple ingredients, PureAyre is also more versatile than other pet odor eliminators. You can fog it or spray it. You can even use it in the washing machine, on furniture, and in your carpet cleaner. For best results with PureAyre on pet odors on carpets, floors, furniture, clothing and bedding, see our handy instructions for eliminating pet odors.
I have three Scotties. Cushing’s disease will cause a dog to pee a lot, drink a lot of water and you should check with your vet for diagnosis and medication. Currently have one that has it and previously had one that had it. Evidently it is fairly common in certain breeds. And urinary tract infections will also make doggies pee more frequently.
Wash toys, bedding, and accessories regularly. Pet smells build up over time, so it’s important to stay on top of cleaning and washing. Wash your pet’s bed, fabric toys, leashes, and collars in the washing machine every month. Wash hard toys every month in the sink with soap and water. Water bowls need more frequent attention–wash these with soap and water every week.[16]
I have the problem with my bed blanket and I tried everything and it is only a few of my cats that do it. I have a lot of cats/kittens at the moment. I washed in vinegar, laundry soap and pet urine spray. I can’t get it out at all. They even pee on it when i am sleeping with it. I just dont know what to do. They are spayed and neutered.
Once you’ve cleaned a particular area, prevent a recurrence by changing the significance of that area to your cat. In other words, since cats prefer to eat and eliminate in separate areas, place food bowls and treats in previously soiled areas, or play with your cat in that space and leave toys there.
Different classes of bad odors, whether based in sulfur, nitrogen or oxygen, are specifically targeted by different types of Aveho. This means Aveho won’t get used up as quickly as baking soda or carbon, and has the potential to continue to eliminate bad odors as they are generated.  Aveho also won’t absorb most positive fragrances, if you choose to introduce them.  So if it’s “Pure Vanilla Joy” that you want, “Pure Vanilla Joy” is what you will get.
I hope this provides an alternative for people whose floors or inhabitants have difficulties with vinegar. (I do use vinegar on other non-marble flooring tiles and glass when my daughter is not around and it works great). Also one one place where I just have grout flooring (more difficult than hard tiling to wash and remove odours) with grating inserted, I removed the metal gratings and washed those outside and, on the grouting flooring, used vinegar first, rinsed with water and dried and followed by a strong solution of oxyclean, rinsed and dried, and the strong male cat urine smell has gone.
