Cleaning old/dry urine from hard surfaces

Cleaning Old (Dry) Urine from Hard Surfaces and Absorbent Surfaces

For dried urine spots, treatment will depend on the type of surface you’re dealing with. Hard materials such as tile, wood flooring, and baseboards can be cleaned using PET PATROL Cat Urine Odour Eliminator. Liberally spray the solution on the urine stain, wipe, and repeat as often as necessary to eliminate any lingering odour. If the smell remains despite your best efforts, we recommend re-treating the area(s) at least 3 times. One important fact is to not wipe off the PET PATROL product. The active ingredient inside PET PATROL Cat Urine Odour Eliminator, called Byotrol, likes to be left wet and allowed to dry on its own. This will ensure that you also get the 24 hour action.

Cleaning carpeting, upholstery or another absorbent surfaces requires a bit more effort. Cat urine is composed of several different chemicals, strains of bacteria, and other substances. And while natural cleaners like hydrogen peroxide, vinegar or baking soda can deal with some of the resulting odors, they don’t deal with them all. It’s important to have cleaner like PET PATROL Cat Urine Odour Eliminator on hand at all times to deal with the uric acid in cat urine stains.

Take these steps to thoroughly clean urine stains and odours from carpets, rugs, and other absorbent surfaces:

•If the spot is still wet, use paper towels or another absorbent material like a rag or cloth and blot up as much of the urine as possible before proceeding to the following steps.
•Pour plain water over the spot and soak up the moisture again using clean, white cloths or paper towels – continue blotting until you don’t see any more yellow on the towels.
•Saturate the spot with PET PATROL Cat Urine Odour Eliminator and let it sit for the prescribed amount of time. You will need to thoroughly soak the soiled areas, including carpet padding if the urine has soaked all the way through.
•Using more clean paper towels, blot up as much moisture as you can and then re-apply and allow the spot to air-dry.
Protecting the just-treated area is a good idea to prevent humans from walking through it or kitty finding it and re-soiling. The fresh "musk" fragrance should deter kitty anyway. You can place aluminum foil loosely over the spots or use an upside-down laundry baskets, baking sheets, or similar items.

If the urine spot has been there awhile, you may need to repeat the last two steps at least once. Depending on the scope of the problem, be prepared to make this a multi-week project as you soak the spots, blot them, allow them to dry, and then repeat the process as many times as necessary to completely remove stains and odour.
PET PATROL Cat Urine Odour Eliminator is available online from Take a Lot as well as your favourite Pet Shop. Ask for it by name and do not accept 2nd best alternatives!
