When urine dries, it leaves behind crystals in the carpet fibre which attract water – so wee stains in carpet tend to always be a bit damp from the moisture in the air.. which means that they always pong a bit.
Hello. I have a multi cat apartment and just recently realized there is a smell. I’m not sure if it’s urine or spray or a mixture. How can I get this smell out of my wood floors, tiles and in the air? Thank you!
I think it’s too much of a personal anecdote to stand on its own as an answer, I figured someone else would have more concrete information, but I wanted to throw it out there as an option since Hydrocide isn’t really a consumer oriented product, I heard about it from the guy that came out to clean our carpets. – Johnny Mar 17 ’14 at 3:28
Scrub the vinegar solution into the soiled area. Use a bristle brush and thoroughly rub the vinegar/water mixture until the area is completely soaked. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia smell in your cat’s urine.[3]
We have 3 cats one pees on carpet down stairs not all time but regularly she has diabetes we are getting the carpet professionally cleaned soon and wondered if it would help if I sprayed the carpet down with vinegar a while before they come to neutralize the pee ?
Burn incense. Incense comes in many forms and in many different smells. To burn incense sticks, place the skinny end of the stick into an incense holder. Light the opposite end of the stick until the tip begins to glow, and then blow out the flame. As the incense burns it will release sweet-smelling smoke that will make the air smell great.
White vinegar is a miraculous substance that will get rid of even the old accident stains that might have been missed if a dog did a “ninja-pee” behind the bookshelves or something. Baking soda is nature’s odor remover, and teamed up with vinegar, does a great job at getting rid of odors!
Great article, we had to remove all the carpet in our home because the previous owners had dogs and our cats decided, this is our house and they marked everything. This include removing and replacing base boards. We are on a concrete slab so we used TSP then a product called odorxit. After the new floors, baseboards, also using a turkey baster needle to inject seal plate and studs with concentrate. We also used the odorxit on the sheet rock, plus repainted the whole downstairs. I can tell you the odorxit is not cheep, but it works. Another time one of our cats got left in the guest room and pee pee on the mattress. Ordorxit to the rescue. 3 applications it took, but no more cat pee smell. Once I run out, I will be buying more. They have another product called odorxit magic spray. Spray this over your kitty box fresh as anything, and the cats keep coming back to the box. I have no affiliation with this company, but I was at my wits end, and found them before they got big and got their product in Amazon and Walmart. The customer service were the nicest people I have talked to as well.
I haven’t had an issue, but everyone’s floors are a little different, so I’d suggest trying a small inconspicuous area just to be sure 🙂 Honestly, if it’s a smooth, hard, surface, I usually just mop up and liquids/pick up any solids and then use vinegar with some essential oil in it to clean.
Freshen the air. Whether your house is plagued with odors or not, air fresheners can always sweeten your home’s scent. Pick a commercial freshener, or make your own. Either way, you’ll have a ton of options, from warm vanilla to fresh citrus. When you opt for commercial sprays, gels, or plug-ins, make sure they’re specially formulated to be safe for pets.[13] Spray it around the house to freshen the air.
Yes! Thank you for saying that! Real (raw) food is the only way they should eat. I feed my German Shepherd Dog raw meaty bone, raw meat and raw organs. It upsets me knowing animals are forced to eat commercial food with diseased and euthenized animals in the ingredients. (Of course it’s not listed but it’s in there)
Your only option that I can see is to fill you washing machine up with hot water and a cup of OxiClean Versatile and soak that bad boy overnight. Run it through, then rewash on hot then dry fully. If that doesn’t work, I’d get a new blanket.
We have only had good results with the enzyme based Natures Miracle product in the red sprsy bottle, unless it has been changed . Their aerosol can carpet product uses a strong masking perfume abd we do not recommend that version.
Inappropriate urination is more than a nuisance. Besides in the case of cats who haven’t yet been litterbox trained, urinating outside of a designated area in the house usually signals that something is wrong. Cats don’t like to urinate in places where they can’t cover up their waste – so if your cat is doing this, they’re probably no happier about it than you are.
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.
I went ahead and scrubbed the baseboards with white vinegar. Then I found the peroxide/water suggestion. I tried that. Now I have a strong odor of vinegar in the room. I have opened the windows to let it air out. Not sure, but I feel like I have made things worse.
Also, my situation is very dire. Our daughter developed an addiction to heroin and the past couple of years, we have become very neglectful to keeping the house clean. So I’m not dealing with day old odors, but years old. I don’t like to admit that because it’s a really embarrassing situation. It’s impossible to have people over to visit. Thank God for the anonymity of the internet so I can ask for help.
Purchase a repellent spray if your pet keeps urinating in the same area. There are a variety of sprays available for different types of pets, such as dogs and cats. Search for one that fits your household needs (such as being safe for use in houses with children) and won’t damage your particular type of carpet.

As a general rule, you should keep as many litter boxes as you have cats in the house, plus one.  You can also try removing the cover of your cat’s litter box (if it has one) or changing the type of litter you use to encourage your cat to use his or her box.
You need to soak the affected area thoroughly, and allow the solution a long time to dry, whether you have carpet, wood floors, or masonry flooring. No fans or open windows are needed here. In fact, it’s a good idea to place a piece of cardboard over the affected area to slow down evaporation. The solution works to eat away at the natural enzymes that are causing the odor in the first place, and they need time to do their work. If after all this, you still have pet odor problems, you’re going to need to take more drastic measures. With carpeting, you’ll probably need to replace it. And if the pet urine has made it into the subfloor, you may have to replace that as well. The same goes for wood flooring. It can be a timely, and costly, project. But when compared to living with the smell of pet urine, it’s often worth the trouble.

Sometimes dog urine accidents have already dried because you did not notice them previously. You can find dried urine spots on your carpet with the aid of a black light. The dog urine stains will fluoresce under the ultra violet light in a darkened room. Hand held black lights are quite inexpensive usually costing between $15 – $25.
If you happen to suffer from allergies or multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), you are sure to benefit from using Smelleze® because it does not emit any harmful chemicals and works by eliminating smells rather treating them with additional chemicals which might cause you a problem.
I’ve been looking everywhere for a product that gets rid of pet urine odor for forever. My nose is really sensitive, and when you have a large dog and 6 cats (one of which who likes to pee when she’s upset), anything to get rid of the odor is greatly desired. I’ve found products that mask the smell, or slightly reduce it, but SUN actually gets RID OF IT. One thing I actually like is that I can see exactly where the pee is, since the most important thing is you want to saturate the area.
Important. Never use ammonia or ammonia-based products on the carpet. One of the ingredients of urine is ammonia and your cat 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.
PRS Carpet Prespray is biological based and provides stunning cleaning performance on food soils, pet stains, and body fluids on carpet and all cloth surfaces by digesting odors and moderate soil loads at their source.
While commercial products offer a lot of advantages, there are a couple of ways that you can take care of things yourself without investing in a product. They might not be quite as efficacious but it’s always good to save a bit of cash.
Thank you so much!!!!! I am having this problem with one of my dogs. We have been using the baking soda and that dries it up. We have tried all kinds of store bought sprays that promise to work, but none of them do work. The vinegar sounds perfect ( the way you explained it makes perfect sense.) I am going to start doing it today. I just stumbled on this, Thank God for that.
Most reviewers love the smell, stating that it is not too overpowering, but nice, clean, and great for a fresh smelling house. Although most people enjoy the smell of this product, a select few say it is too strong and unpleasant. Some also claim the product does not work at all, saying you can smell oranges for a day or two and that, once that scent dissipates, the urine is back again.
Yikes! I once had a foster that someone had fed a very bright red biscuit to…needless to say, I feel your pain. You can try just making a plain baking soda paste with some warm water, gently rubbing it into the stain (after any solids are gone and all traces liquid soaked up) and letting it sit for 15 minutes or longer, then follow with the vinegar rinse. If you haven’t try the above methods as well. I have found with throw up that it’s easy to overlook the fluid part and not soak it all up, which can really contribute to the stain, so I do whatever I have to to absorb it all before doing anything. Is it possible to switch your cats food at all? Are they throwing up directly after meals? If it’s right after meals, kitty may be gulping their food. They could also have issues with hairballs that cause vomiting. Well there’s quite a few reason they throw up really, but either way, I hope this helped some.
Cover the stain with paper towels or rags and walk lightly over or place something heavy on top to soak up any excess liquid. Sprinkle a generous handful of baking soda over the stain when no more liquid can be pulled up, and mix together ½ cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of dish liquid. Slowly pour the solution over the stain and baking soda. Gently scrub the mixture into the carpet fibers with a scrub-brush or cloth, and then let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Vacuum the area thoroughly. For tough stains, repeat the above steps.
