“remove urine smell in bathroom _remove cat urine smell from carpet”

Someone please help! We moved into our house at the end of November and we have 1 cat. The previous owners had cats over the years, as well. We noticed that anytime the basement got damp (our sewer backed up in winter and now with springtime thaw and rain~basement leaks a little bit) that the smell of cat urine was overwhelming. Under our stairs was a space that was semi-boarded up, so I took the boards down and found about 50+ piles of cat poop that was certainly OLD and white, as well as lots of dirt (?), rotted wood, etc…bought a black light and yes, it is all cat urine under there too. I then scanned the entire basement and there is cat pee EVERYWHERE!!! I don’t know what to do or where to start, since this is not a small, localized area. Call a haz-mat team? I know professional services can be expensive. Please help!! Oh, and the walls are old fieldstone and the floor is rough and bumpy cement. Thanks in advance!
anything with enzymes will work in a spray bottle also , i have same issue ! going to have to replace carpet and not sure what to put back down ! have you tried some pee pads ? just lay a couple down at night !
Products like Nature’s Miracle are also costlier and messier in the long run. Because you have to saturate a pet spot in order for Nature’s Miracle to work, you buy more and wait up to two weeks for an area to dry while living with the odor of both the urine and the chemicals. Then, if it didn’t work, you have to start all over again.
Be prepared for accidents when you bring home a new cat. You’ll need to train your cat to use the litter box properly, clean up after her if she doesn’t, and get medical treatment for her if an illness is causing inappropriate urination.
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.
We have two dogs and one of them either peed or pooped upstairs. I have done everything I can imagine to get rid of the smell (cleaners, carpet steaming, screaming, etc) and nothing is working. Do you guys have any ideas aside from ripping out the carpet.
We have a consumer Hoover “steam” cleaner and have repeatedly gone over the affected areas on several occasions, but can’t get rid of the odor. Is there any hope for rid of the smell? We don’t want to replace the carpet yet, as it’s likely she’ll keep repeating the behavior.
I asked around online about what I could use and got lots of answers like “burn the couch” “buy a new one,” stuff like that, because seriously, cat pee is about impossible to get out. I decided to check out Amazon amd saw that Rocco & Roxie’s had the best reviews, it was a little pricier than other products, but cheaper than buying a new couch so I decided to give it a go.
Wash clothes. Throw the clothes in the washing machine with a regular dose of laundry detergent, 2-4 cups of white vinegar (depending on how large the load is), and a liberal scoop of baking soda. Use the smallest setting you can so you can really get the fabric agitating in the machine. The white vinegar deodorizes the urine, while the baking soda helps lift the urine out of the fabric. Wash on hot.
There is a strong, legitimate, and chemically important reason to use an enzyme cleaner to clean cat urine stains. Home-made mixtures or typical household cleaners simply do not contain the required ingredients to remove ALL the components of cat urine. Vinegar and baking soda work to neutralize the odor temporarily, and hydrogen peroxide is 30% more oxidizing than chlorine. But cat urine is composed of things that REQUIRE enzymes to break down the chemical bonds.
Hi Eric! I have a kitty who is “pissed” because he has to be quarantined for 45 days – something bit him outside. He’s unhappy because of this, and keeps peeing on my bedroom carpet. I’d like to just buy a steam cleaning machine because he seems to have peed all over the whole thing. Have you ever tried this method? Would you advise against this for any reason and if not, can you recommend a specific machine that won’t break the bank?
This stuff removes the smell from anything! My 16-year old son has shoes and feet that smell to the high heavens. We’ve tried everything — including skin prescriptions. I sprinkle this in his shoes — the odor is GONE!! I put it in the pantry to stop dry goods from going rancid. The fridge, garage, son’s room, trash cans……. forget the air fresheners — just get rid of the bad smells. This in your answer — and a whole lot more economical than Fabreeze.
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.
A: Eliminate odors coming from the shower drain by eliminating the source of the odor. Hair, soap, body oils and everything else that goes down the drain leads to foul smells, and those things must come out for the smell to disappear.
I just recently bought a Bissell ProHeat 2X® Steam Cleaner as we have an 8 month old Boxer that still has accidents.. With the steam cleaner I used Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula.. For the smaller areas where she still has some tiny accidents I have used Bissell Pet Stain & Odor Remover – Spray, I’m very sensitive to smells (not like an animal though ) and I have been unable to smell the urine since using these products. I have also noticed when she has another “accident” it’s not in the area I have cleaned, it will be in a new area..

If you’re faced with set-in stains or smells you can’t get rid of, it may be time to call in a professional, as sometimes spot-removal isn’t enough, Hatch said. “Unfortunately, urine doesn’t just stay at the top of carpet, it soaks into carpet padding and backing and can even soak into the sub floor,” he said. Spot cleaning can only get the urine at the face fibers of the carpet, and to truly remove the bacteria and the odors they can create, you’ll need a professional, he said.
But even for him, that rule wasn’t good enough. Throughout the day he would relieve himself in one litter box, then the other litter box, and then – not finding it suitable to re-use one of the litter boxes – the carpeted corner of my bedroom.

If not treated properly, the odor from pet accidents can travel through the entire home and impact your health and your happiness. The smell emitted from an accident area also often leads to repeat incidents in the same area until it is properly eliminated.
Debra, I’m really sorry to hear that. Other than keeping your windows open, there’s really not much you can do. The pet owners are the ones who have to fix the problem. You need to talk to them again. If that doesn’t work, talk to the property management. They don’t want one resident making life unpleasant for the rest. They’re in the business of making money and to do that, they need to keep residents somewhat happy. So seriously, give the neighbors one last chance and then go above them.
I’ve been looking for how to remove dog urine smell from carpet and think I found the answer. My family grew up using Resolve and I remember it not working. However, when I got married my husband swore by it, so I gave it another chance. They must’ve changed their formula because it actually works! We’ve only had to use it a couple times, once when our dog went potty inside and another time when I spilled watermelon juice on our WHITE chair (shhhh don’t tell my husband). Thankfully both stains are gone and everything looks (and smells) great!
Put a washable cover on furniture. Your pet may have proudly claimed an armchair or a spot on the couch as their own. This special space, or any other furniture where your pet lounges, will need frequent washing to keep the odors at bay. If your pets spend a lot of time on your furniture, it’s a good idea to invest in washable covers like slip covers. That way, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of vacuuming and scrubbing your furniture. Instead, just throw the cover in the wash.
“Bleach is the best germ killer, but it’s really toxic. So I also use a blend of vinegar and water to clean. And it doesn’t ruin hardwood floors. To eliminate smells, spray a blend of ten drops of tea-tree and lavender oils and eight ounces of water.” — Jay Andors, animal trainer and owner of NYC Clicker Trainer
I first tried normal Bissel carpet shampoo, thoroughly wetting, sucking up, and re-wetting the carpet many times in the same setting and it did nothing to remove the odor. Next I bought the Hoover Petplus 2x odor remover solution, which also did absolutely nothing to help the smell. They left virtually no odor masking perfume smell once the carpet fully dried, but didn’t remove the urine odor either.
As with any product that you would put on your carpet, flooring or furniture, always test for color fastness. To test for color fastness, mix a small amount of the solution and place on a hidden area of your carpet. Wait 24 hours or until carpet is dry before proceeding to full treatment.

Getting rid of the smell of cat urine from carpeting can be challenging, because it can soak right through the carpet fibers to the carpet padding. And since cats have a strong sense of smell, it’s important to clean and deodorize the area completely to prevent a return visit!
I am so thankful that I found this site. I have 2, 11 year old kitties, both are fixed and have medical issues. My male cat has a urinary tract disorder and requires special food and lots of water. He is the perfect kitty, loves his litter box. My female has an inoperable stomach tumor and has decided that she no longer wants to pee in the litter box. Instead she has several places in my bedroom and bathroom that she rather use. I have tried vinegar w/ water and followed that with baking soda, she goes right on top of all of it. The tile and sheetrock in the bathroom are horrible. I have tried all the natural ways of cleaning them with no avail in deterring her. I’m not sure I know what an enzyme cleaner is but really need help with this. The Vet said they don’t make kitty diapers when I asked, I am willing to try anything.
When your dog pees on your carpet, there are a few issues you have to address — the smell, the carpet stains and how much the carpet is saturated, i.e. how long since he peed (and how long the urine has had to seep deep into the carpet). First, the basics. What’s the best dog urine remover? You might be surprised to know that it’s plain old water! Below are some tips on the first steps to take to get dog urine out of carpet as soon as you find his “oops” spot(s).
Hi Eric! I just discovered your website and was reading all the comments. I’ve had indoor cats for many, many years. I have probably come close to using every product on the market to get rid of the urine smell in my carpet. I even have a can of “Resolve Pet Expert” carpet cleaner (Kent’s solution to the problem back in February). Yes, Resolve does seem to work at the moment – but it certainly doesn’t last. The white vinegar solution works great as does the hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/dish liquid solution. I really just wanted to say kudos to your response to Kent’s comment back in February 🙂 There was no need for his rudeness so thank you for your response.
That means keeping your animal in a cage 16 plus hours a day??? Why don’t you simply take him/her outside for a short pee break at intervals??when you wake, at lunch. after work and before bed…it’s cruel to cage an animal 16 hours, why bother having an animal if all you do is keep it in a tight cage
