How To Remove Cat Urine Smell Out Of Carpet

Blot it up

One of the simplest and most effective ways to remove pet odor from your carpets is blotting. Put some absorbent, like paper towels or a clean rag, down on top of your carpet, and then press it against any damp spots on your carpet with your hands. Press down so that you’re pushing as much moisture into your towel as possible. When you’re done, throw away both paper towels or rags and check whether more moisture needs blotting up in that area. Once it’s completely dry, you should be able to vacuum over it with no trouble at all.

The strong, pungent odor of cat urine can be extremely difficult to eliminate. However, some home remedies may help neutralize a cat’s odor and leave your home smelling fresh again. In most cases, it is hard to completely remove an old scent from carpeting, but you can use these methods and products that are safe for your pets as well as humans. For long-term results, you should also consider professional cleaning options.

Mix it with warm water and put it in a spray bottle

Vinegar is great for cleaning and removing odors. Mix one part vinegar with two parts water. Put in a spray bottle, shake well and spray on the area you are trying to clean or eliminate odor from. Make sure if you’re trying to clean up something like pet urine that you dilute it even more. If not you might have problems with it eating through your carpet or other surfaces you might be using it on. Do NOT use straight vinegar as a cleaner on its own because it can eat through materials and cause damage over time.

Spray the area down thoroughly

When you notice your cat has urinated on a rug or carpet, don’t panic. Before you can remove it, you’ll want to saturate as much of it as possible with an enzymatic pet cleaner. These enzymes attack and break down even old stains that might have been set in overtime. The substance is usually available at pet stores and works by breaking down odor-causing proteins without any need for scrubbing or rinsing. Just pour it on, allow it to work for about 20 minutes, and then rinse it up. Also, note that some enzymatic cleaners will discolor your carpets slightly so be sure to test in an inconspicuous area first before going all out.

Leave it to dry completely and before using it again

The longer pet pee stays in your carpet, padding or hardwood floors, and rugs, the more set it is going to be. Just like if you spilled a drink on your favorite white t-shirt. The longer it sits there and soaks in, the harder it is going to be to clean up later. If you have pets peeing on carpets during their awake hours which isn’t abnormal you need to take care of them right away. Most companies recommend applying as soon as possible.

However, as long as you have let it sit for at least 24 hours before beginning to remove it. There’s no harm in trying to tackle cleaning your carpets yourself first. A powerful steam cleaner can make all the difference when tackling tough spots. Regardless of whether or not you use an enzymatic cleaner after using vinegar, once dried completely, use an unscented bleach spray (the kind that doesn’t leave behind any fumes) to make sure all traces are removed from carpet fibers before using again. This is probably one of those jobs best left for professionals and one we don’t recommend attempting without boots on.
