How To Remove Cat Stains And OdorEvery cat owner knows that sometimes cats find places to go to the bathroom other then their litter box. Cats can also be a little random with where they spray before they are "fixed." Everyone who has had a cat with a urinary tract infection knows that the whole house becomes a litter box, and blood stained urine spots pop up in unexpected places. Cat urine can destroy carpet and furniture, and cleaning it is a battle.
There are several specialty products to clean stains from cat urine. These products are generally over-priced as they are geared specifically to target cat urine. But, anyone who has tried these products knows they do not work. Often times, they are watered down, soapy, or over scented. Many make the stain appear to fade, but then once the spot has dried, the stain is clearly visible again. Others briefly mask the smell. But if the smell is merely being masked, it will return and be just as strong as the day it was discovered.
Another big mistake in cleaning cat urine is the suggestion that ammonia and vinegar will remove the scent and stain. These are two of the worst possible agents to use in cleaning up after a cat. Both ammonia and vinegar contain elements found in cat urine. Because cats are instinctively drawn to urinate in the same spot, they are more likely to continue to urinate outside of their box, confusing the smell of the ammonia or vinegar for that of their own urine. If you are having issues with your cat urinating regularly outside of their box, it is advised that you clean the urine with paper towels. Next, place the urine soaked paper towels in the rear of the litter box so the cat can follow the scent to the box the next time it has to urinate. Thoroughly clean any area outside of the liter box to remove both the smell and the odor.
The problem however is finding a cleaner that does remove the stain and the odor. Solvents that are watered down essentially saturate the urine deeper into the carpet. Soapy chemicals do nothing to break the stain down. Many cleaners have chemicals which can damage carpet and upholstery, or worse yet, make your pet sick. A good stain remover will actually get into the stain and break the structural bond of that stain. When this happens, the stain can then be lifted from the surface it had adhered to. If the bond of the stain is not being broken down, then you are not removing it. Once broken down and lifted, you are not only pulling out the stain, but you are also eliminating the odor.
