How can pro carpet cleaning help you get rid of that cat urine smell?
Cat urine smell is something all cat owners face with even the most well-trained pet. Getting rid of that unmistakable ammonia-based odor is no easy task. In fact, we can’t even guarantee we can get rid of it – the odor is just that strong!
Pet cleaning supplies in stores don’t usually do the trick effectively. You spray; the smell seems to go away for a little while, but then it’s back with a vengeance before you know it. That smell, of course, attracts Fluffy right back to the scene of the crime for a repeat performance.
You’ll find dangerous advice online, too. The most frequent bit of advice recommends a dangerous mix of chemicals to combat cat urine odor: baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and dish washing liquid. You’ll read about mixing these ingredients with water, applying to the stain, then letting it set. Some even recommend adding more baking soda to the area for good measure. This likely won’t work and is dangerous.
Keep areas where the cat sleeps clean. If kitty sleeps in a bed, wash it a minimum of once per week. You may want to place air fresheners where your cat stays the most often. Air fresheners will catch smells before they start and keep you from being overwhelmed with them until you can remove them.
Preventing cat urine odors is the most effective method to handle the problem. One way is to make certain the animal has an accessible litter box that is cleaned daily. If the box gets too dirty, the cat may stop using it. Have one more litter box than there are cats in the house. This ensures kitty relieves herself in the box and not on your carpet.
It takes patience and consistency to prevent cat urine smells.
