This is a deadly odour, that’s for sure. If you have a kitty pet, you’ve likely run into this accident at some point and wondered if you’ll ever get the cat urine smell out of your carpet or upholstery. Don’t set fire to your house or sofa just yet. Here’s a short-list of ways that you can get rid of cat urine smell for good.
Don’t wait around cursing the world and wondering if you’ll survive the lung-bursting noxious gasses erupting from the small puddle on the carpet. The furry culprit calmly cleans herself on the front door rug as if nothing happened. Don’t dawdle, get in there quick! Dab up as much as you can as soon as possible. The longer it sits, the longer it has to seep deeper into the carpet, the underlay and even onto the hardwood or subfloor below.
Get a Wet Vac Working Overtime on the Wet Spot
If you have a hearty wet-dry shop vac handy, let it loose on the pee spot quickly and run it until it overheats. Saturate the area with cold water and give the vacuum another session, sucking up as much of the diluted cat pee water as possible. Using warm or hot water expands the cellular fibres in the carpet and could set the smell into the carpet even more. Really let it have it with the shop vac.
Baking Soda to the Rescue
Baking soda is a legendary odour conqueror. With as much of the pee and water-soaked up and dabbed up with a cloth, spread out a healthy coating of baking soda across the area. You’ll need to leave it on the carpet for several hours; overnight is a good amount of time. In the morning, vacuum it all up and hopefully, you’ll have pulled most of the remaining smell out of the carpet.
