Can you get rid of cat odour once and for all?

Picture of Cat

If you’ve ever had an ‘accident of the feline nature’ on your floor, you’ll understand how pungent cat urine can be.  Unfortunately, this unsavoury liquid can saturate even the most solid materials, including concrete.  So, a mess of this variety on your carpets will most definitely seep through to your underlay, any padding and even subfloors!  This makes it even more important to clean cat urine as soon as possible to stop that strong ammonia scent from lingering.  Here are two remedies that may help minimise the immediate incident’s aroma and to clean cat urine from your floors at home.  Of course, to make sure that smell is well and truly gone, you are most likely to need one of our experienced and professional carpet and flooring experts from your local JAE team.


Baking Soda

Turns out, Grandma’s go-to remedy is an actual winner. Sprinkle baking soda over the urine and let it sit for a couple of hours to absorb the ammonia scent. Then, vacuum it away. Once vacuumed, spray with some white vinegar and rinse out with some warm water. Don’t rub – dab!


Enzyme-based Spray

Many pet stores stock urine odour removal sprays.  You can use these on the affected area according to the directions on the packaging.  You may need to repeat this process a few times before the smell is gone.

Although these methods are effective to subside the odour at first, it is often likely that the scent will persist and perhaps encourage your pets to continue to mark this area.  If you want to get rid of that ammonia smell once and minimise pet odour in your home, call your local JAE branch today for our pet odour removal systems.
