“what gets rid of cat urine odor +remove urine wood floors”

My neighbor can’t get her tiny yorkie trained so she stays in a fenced in area all the time and uses a disposable pad. I was using them too but when her dog visits (which is daily) she wasn’t using them, she would go all over the house. My sister told me she was started using large non disposable pads like the pads used in hospital beds. I tried it and both dogs are using it with no accidents. I just throw them in the washer with bleach. I think a little odor, that only the dogs smell, brings them back to it every time. They are very inexpensive and much cheaper than disposables.
My cat Chancey a male never had a problem with urine till someone threw Smokey a female out of a window of a car and then I kept her; they say cats are territory and he is acting out you could say he is jealous;I clean the spot with peroxide dish soap and vinegar; when it is totally dry I then saturte the area with baking powder for 2 months and I cover the area with 2 garbage bags I leave the bags on if he pees again all you do is to wipe with paper towels ;and spray the mixture don’t smell a thing!
We bought our house 16 years ago. It had been infested with rats. One hallway has a closet for the furnace. It reeks of rat urine and wafts out into the hall. Without tearing out the sheetrock, how can I get rid of the smell? There is a space in the ceiling that is open and can be reached. It seems to be where most of the smell is. Please help. Thank you.
There was a mystery stain that showed up in an extra bedroom that looked so questionable I didn’t even want to stick my nose in it… (I have 3 adult dogs, 1 puppy and 1 cat). I sprayed some Rocco on the spot, left it and forgot about it. The next morning I went in and it was COMPLETELY gone.
Trish, most enzymatic cleaners work by supporting the growth of the naturally occurring bacteria that will, over time, break down the urine, and thus, the odor. So yeah, it is possible that it’s still working. However, I’d call them back on like…Friday. At least that way you’ve given it a full week. The thing is, you paid for a service that they said they could do, and if it doesn’t work, the alternative is to tear up the carpet and then you’ve completely wasted all the money you spent on the cleaning service plus you’re gonna be spending more. Before you call them, however, bring other people in the room (as embarrassing as it may be) to see if they smell it, too.
Awesome stuff! This product really works! It’s very safe for use around pets and people and can be used as a whole house deodorizer. I use a little in the cats litter and no more stink! Works great in musty basements and laundry rooms. Awesome for use eliminating odors in tennis shoes, trash pails and toters, and even eliminates refrigerator odors too. I give this stuff 5 out of 5 stars, and highly recommend!
I have a 25 yr old satillo tile with concrete grout floor. I have always had a variety of animals in my home and for some reason this has been the place where the accidents happen. I have tried all kinds of things that appear to work but then the smell comes back. Especially in the damp winter time. I have a 23 yr old macaw that does have some respiratory deficiency in the house so I can’t use anything that will harm him.
Have multiple litter boxes. Older cats can’t travel too far to do their business. Put litter boxes in rooms where your elderly kitty likes to sleep. In multiple-cat households, having litter boxes in different locations makes it impossible for a dominant cat to “guard” the box and not allow other cats to use it.
Kent, despite your rudeness, I decided to approve your comment. The idea here is, after all, to help people. If you don’t like my remedy, don’t use it. If you think it’s too complicated, then you’re simply too lazy. As for the abundance of chemicals, I ask you to read the back of your can of Resolve. Do that, then we can talk about chemicals. Finally, as for the “so-called” need to add things to the laundry, I only suggest the addition of apple cider vinegar, which I have done numerous times with great results. It’s simple, it’s cheap, it’s a natural disinfectant. Why wouldn’t you use it? I wish I could say I was sorry to hear about your cat problem, but in all honesty, I think you deserve it.
I found an area of carpet that one of my cats had peed on twice. It was so bad, it went all the way through to the sub flooring and into the baseboards. I have taken up the carpet and padding and have saturated the flooring with an ineffective odor eliminator. Any suggestions?
The reviewed removers are chosen from the best cat urine removers that have been proven to be very effective. All the formula is safe for hand contact, you only need to be careful not to let it touch your eyes. Wearing safety glasses is fine and don’t let children get close to the product since they might try to drink it. Depending on the type of stain that you’re going to apply on, choose the right remover. For food stains, it’s best to use natural bacterial formula products. But if it mostly contains chemical components, a chemical formula might work better.
Bleach your cement floors and bare walls. Although this method is widely disputed because of the deadly reaction bleach has with ammonia (which is found in cat urine), if you go about it carefully, it can be an effective way to kick the urine smell out of your life for good. First, wash the soiled area with any appropriate cleaner you have that DOES NOT contain ammonia. Once clean, wipe the area down with fresh water to remove any residue left behind by the cleaner. Next, do it again. I know it sounds laborious, but trust me, this works. After your second washing and wiping, employ your bleach. In a clean spray bottle you can pick up from the beauty section of any Target store, mix a 10:1 water to bleach solution. Make sure the area you are cleaning in is well ventilated, put on some rubber gloves and get to work. Spray on lightly, let sit for about 30 seconds, and wipe off with a clean damp rag.
Wash the bedding. You spend about a third of your life in your bed, so it’s no wonder that sheets, blankets, and pillow cases can start to smell up a room after a while. To remove these odors, strip the pillow cases, sheets, and other washable linens and covers from the bed, and wash them in the washing machine.
With especially old, or deeply penetrated urine stains, baking soda and vinegar may not do enough to lift the odor and the bacteria that causes it. This is where a more powerful tool comes in handy. The Bissell Little Green ProHeat has proven itself to be a total lifesaver in my life (seriously, my mom “borrowed” mine and I immediately had to order a new one because with two toddlers and two cats, it’s become a nearly everyday essential for me).

After you’re done cleaning, shine a black light on a troublesome spot. It will show if cat urine is still present in the area. Sometimes it may seem like the urine is gone, but it can crystallize and stay present in carpet fibers. A black light the size of the stain that isn’t visible to the human eye or picked up by the human nose.
A malodor is another way of saying “bad odor”.  These are often made from molecules that contain nitrogen, oxygen, and/or sulfur.  Aveho will selectively target these compounds, and will bind them, or convert them to substances that don’t smell so offensive.
These professionals can handle odors caused by urine contamination, decomposition, mold, chemicals, and fire and smoke damage, among many other sources. Their expertise means they are prepared for any job, no matter the scope.
Mix a solution of a hydrogen peroxide and dish detergent. Take about a half cup of peroxide and mix it with a spoonful of dish detergent. If using on a light-colored carpet, be sure to use a colorless dish detergent.
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.
