If you have a cat that has peed all over your carpeting even though you have done everything to stop them, you should first take the cat to the veterinarian to ensure there is not a medical reason for this. It can be difficult to remove cat pee from a carpeting but you still may be able to. This does depend on how long the pee has been there and how far deep it is in the carpet. Below is some more information about this so you can get this problem taken care of.
Products on the Market
A cat's urine has uric acid crystals, which is what causes the urine to have a bad odor. There are products on the market that have enzymes that destroy the uric acid in the urine, which in turn removes the odor without covering it up and masking it.
Read the instructions carefully because it is important that you use the correct amount, which will depend on how large the urine spot is. Most of these products are not spray bottles. This is because when you spray the product, it only gets on the surface of the carpet. Because the cat pee has likely soaked into the carpet, you need to make sure the cleaner can soak into the carpet also.
If you do not want to use a chemical product on the market, there are some natural things you can try to remove the stain and odor. One thing that works well is white distilled vinegar. Vinegar is an acid and can neutralize the uric acid crystals. Put a solution of one part vinegar and one part water in a small bucket. Pour enough of this mixture onto the stain until the carpet is soaked. Let it sit for approximately an hour and then use a wet vac to suck any extra liquid out of the carpet. Vinegar has an odor but this smell will go away within a few days.
You can also use baking soda along with vinegar. Baking soda will help remove the odor from the carpet. First generously place enough baking soda to completely cover the stain. Pour the vinegar solution you made above over the baking soda and it will immediately start fizzing. Let it sit until the fizzing has stopped.
When you are finished, you need to use a wet vac as above to remove the liquid from the carpet. You can rent a wet vac if you do not have one.
If you cannot clean the carpet yourself, contact a carpet cleaning company like Conscientious Carpet Care. They have strong equipment and stronger cleaners than you can purchase to clean your carpet. Ask them to clean your entire carpeting while they are there.Share
