How To Remove Cat Urine Smell
Every cat owner knows how absolutely awful the smell of cat pee can be. This is especially true when it’s not inside a litterbox. Sometimes a cat will have medical issues preventing them from using the litterbox, sometimes they will urinate as a way of protest, and sometimes you may have adopted a cat which hasn’t yet been litter trained. Removing the smell after these accidents have occurred might seem impossible, but it isn’t! With PetLab Pet Urine & Odour Remover, there’s a simple way to get rid of that cat urine smell. PetLab’s Urine Remover is an enzyme cleaner specifically developed to deal with organic pet messes.
Step 1: Locate and assess the stain
Acting fast in these situations will save you a lot of trouble by making the removal process easier, so the first step is always to locate the stain. It’s also important to check how old the stain is. If it’s new and still wet, your job will be easier. If it’s old and dried, it might be harder. Your approach is going to have to be altered if this is the case. But even with old stains, PetLab’s urine remover is almost always able to remove the stain as well as the odour.
Step 2: Do not use any other cleaning product
Before you get your PetLab cleaner, it might be tempting to reach for whatever other cleaning products you have available in your home. This isn’t a good idea. PetLab is highly efficient for this exact purpose and will do it better than cleaning products that aren’t specialised for urine stains. Any other products being used on the same area will hinder the enzyme cleaner’s effort and might require you to repeat the treatment. To save yourself the hassle, go straight for the PetLab. If you tried other products first, make sure they’re thoroughly washed out with water before using the PetLab cleaner.
Step 3: Test your enzyme cleaner.
Like with any product, every material and surface will not react well to the PetLab cleaner. To make sure it doesn’t cause any damage, try it on an inconspicuous area first, which you can easily hide if there is a bad reaction. In most cases, nothing is going to happen, so you’re good to go proceed with the full treatment.
Step 4: Prepare the area
If the pee is still fresh, blot it up. After that, wash down the area you want to treat with water. This step should also be followed if the stain is old and dried. Dry the surface until it’s moist, and then it’s time to apply the cleaner.
Step 5: Use the product
Spray the PetLab cleaner liberally on the area you want to clean, covering the area surrounding the stain as well. You’ll usually be using around the same amount of cleaner as there was urine. Once sprayed, the enzyme cleaner works by following the path of the urine and breaking down and digesting the bacteria that cause the odour. Leave it to do this until it’s fully dry. If the area is exposed to the sun it might dry too fast, so cover it to prevent this. Once it’s dry, rinse with water to get rid of the leftover enzymes.
Step 6: Repeat as required
Old, stubborn stains, or cases where other product was used before the enzyme cleaner, might require more than one treatment. This doesn’t mean the product isn’t working; just repeat the process and you’ll soon get rid of the smell of cat wee from your home.
