Our 7 top tips for removing pet urine smells and stains

Accidents will happen inside your home from time to time. The most common stages to expect a mishap is when you bring home and toilet train a new pet, as your pet approaches its senior years, and at other times such as during wet weather. The best approach to managing pet odours and stains is to be prepared with a cleaning kit that will prevent them from reoccurring. If you do some research online, you will find plenty of remedies that use household products such as vinegar. Unfortunately, these do not work at all and your pet will still smell the odour and will be inclined to use this spot again. To remove them entirely and to prevent re-marking you need to use an enzyme based solution.  If the area is not cleaned thoroughly, the chance of your dog or cat using the same spot again is high. This is critical in the instance of cats that are spraying to mark their territory or as a stress related response.

Here is what we recommend for your cleaning kit:

No more stains and odours
  • rubber gloves
  • 2 x large sponges
  • paper towel
  • a bottle of enzyme based solution such as Yours Drooly No More Urine
  • a bottle of 3 in 1 odour remover spray

Best way to clean pet urine for good

The sooner you clean up the better the outcome and less chance of staining that will occur. By cleaning the mess correctly your pet will be less likely to use this spot again and their is also a product to prevent remarking of areas called no more marking.

Follow these easy steps-

  1. remove any solid waste or soak up as much urine as you can collect with a  heavy duty sponge (the type you use to wash your car works well)
  2. Test area with enzyme spray before use, as recommended.
  3. Spray the area with no  more urine stains and odours and thoroughly soak the area & some of the area outside of this perimeter
  4. Wait 5 minutes & wipe away with another clean sponge
  5. For tougher stains, spray again and allow the enzymes to work for a period of 1 hour. You may find the use of a gentle scrubbing brush is needed to penetrate some carpets
  6. Once dry, you can apply the 3 in 1 odour remover spray if required
  7. Spray with yours Droolly no more marking, this contains a pheromone to prevent remarking

Cats will often spray or mark outside of their litter tray for reasons that are not accidental. More often than not, this is a symptom of stress. They may be reacting to another cat that passes the window through the night, their litter tray may need cleaning or they may have a medical reason such as a urinary tract infection. A complex issue that needs another blog devoted entirely to this topic! For more information about why pets urinate inside, read our previous blog here 4 common reasons why pets urinate in the house. Items of clothing or household items such as bags that have come into contact with cat urine can also be treated with these sprays. Here's how to go about it:

  1. Soak the item with the no  more urine stains and odours spray
  2. leave for 10 minutes
  3. wash on a hot cycle (about 60 degrees) if you can with normal laundry detergent
  4. Dry in full sun
  5. Repeat process if required
