Cat urine smells very badly, and the first thing you have to do is to get rid of the problem. Clean the litter and change the sand because it is very possible for your cat to refuse to use it because of the smell.
It is very important that when you notice a spot of urine, insist on eliminating the scent. Cats have more developed feelings than people, so they can identify smells much easier. Unfortunately, an ineffectually cleansed urine spot will attract the cat back into the area.
For surfaces made of tiles, faience, concrete, linoleum or wood you can successfully use a solution of water and chlorine. Chlorine will successfully eliminate any trace of odor, and is also recommended for cleaning the litter. After use, the area will be rinsed with abundant water.
1. How to clean fresh cat urine stains
The first step you need to take is to eliminate the excess liquid before it catches a large surface of the carpet or it dries. Use absorbent paper towels and place them above the stain. Don’t rub the area to avoid spreading urine on a larger surface. Change the paper towel as soon as it gets wet.
Using a sprayer, scatter some warm water over the stain to remove as much urine as possible. After spraying, remove the surplus with paper wipes.
Spread baking soda into the wet area and let it act for a few minutes. Then wipe the carpet with a dry cloth. Repeat the process until you notice that the baking soda powder remains clean and dry.
2. How to clean dry and old cat urine spots
Because dry stains have already started to smell, it’s best to use another cleaning solution. Mix water and vinegar in equal amounts and pour the solution into a sprayer. Soak the stain with this solution.
Place a towel over the stain and put a heavy object over it for 24 hours. Vinegar will discolor the stain and eliminate any trace of odor.
After 24 hours remove the towel and clean the carpet with a special cleaning solution for carpets.
