How to Get Rid of Cat Urine Smell – Our Vets' Advice

Have you ever wondered how to get rid of cat urine smell, but can't find something that works? Cat urine is one of the toughest smells to remove. How do you clean stubborn cat odor and urine spots for good? Take these tips from a vet for the best way to eliminate cat urine accidents.

I have had a lot of experience with my own cats urinating outside the box as well as clients cat. This is one of the most frustrating things that cat owners deal with.

Here are some tips things I'ave learned in how to get rid of the cat urine smell.

1.        Get every spot. When cats "pee" outside the litter box it creates a lot of problems for everyone. Apart from being gross, stinky, and causing stains, it's difficult to clean. In fact, many cats continue urinating in the same inappropriate areas time and time again because they weren't cleaned properly the first time. You can find hidden areas by smelling the carpet (often difficult and tedious) or by using a urine locator black light, which causes urine the glow green or yellow. These come in a variety of sizes and styles; I recommend larger models that look like a small flashlight.

2.        Clean the entire carpet, not just the top. Cat urine will soak into carpet padding or baseboards and you need to treat the *entire* area for the cleaning to be effective. Blot any damp carpet with paper towels. Once it is as dry as it can get, use a product that enzymatically breaks down or neutralizes urine odor molecules. Use a good quality product as directed-if the label says to saturate the area, do so. Some of my favorite products include Zero Odor, Urine-off, and Nature's Miracle. Other choices include Anti Icky Poo (AIP), eSeaYu Petrotech Odor Eliminator, Odorban, Odornil, and Nilodor.

If you really want to get rid of cat smell you absolutely must follow these steps. Remember to clean the area completely and use a product designed to work, not just what's on sale.

I hope this information helps you clean up cat urine in carpet.
