How To Remove Urine Stains & Odours From Hardwood Floors

NoteThe longer urine sits on your hardwood floors the more damage it can cause. Urine left untreated on a hardwood floor for a longer period of time will literally burn the timber causing an irreversible stain. So, it’s crucial to start cleaning as soon as it’s spotted to prevent the acid from burning or discolouring the surface.

Steps to clean and remove urine stains and odours from hardwood floors:

  1. Blot up the urine deposit with paper towels or absorbent microfibre cloth.
  2. Spray PetLab stain & odour remover liberally to saturate the area.
  3. Hardwood floors need a long dwell time for effective results to take place so it’s important to slow down evaporation. To achieve this you can cover the soiled surface with a plastic covering (tarp) to keep it as moist as possible for as long as possible.
  4. Remove plastic after 30 minutes or more and blot dry with paper towels.
  5. Apply PetLab over the area again, only this time do not cover. Leave to air dry and then mop or wipe down the floor surface again with water only.
  6. Repeat these steps until satisfied the odour is removed.

Note: We also recommend disinfecting the area after the enzyme treatment to remove any remaining germs and bacteria. The PetLab Healthy Habitat formula is a natural pet-safe disinfectant that will disinfect the area and also enhance the odour control potency for an even cleaner and odour free result.
