Cat urine will cause an unpleasant odor on the flooring and carpet. It is important that you clean the cat urine from the carpet immediately otherwise it will become a permanent stain. Before you begin to clean the carpet, you have to locate the stained area. Sometimes, it can be difficult to locate the affected area of the cat urine. If you have problem locating the cat urine, you can use a black fluorescent light. After you have located the stain, you can begin the cat urine cleaning process.
Cat urine stains are removable on the upholstery, by blotting it with an absorbent cloth. You should use dry absorbent cloth during the first time you wipe the upholstery. After wiping it, dip the cloth in vinegar solution and blot the stained area again. You can use the stain and odor removers available from the department store. Every stain remover comes with the manufacturer instruction on how to use it. You should follow the instruction in order to clean the cat urine effectively.
The carpet stained with urine should be sterile by using the carpet removal cleaner. After applying the cleaner, you must use a waste cloth to wipe it until there is no more moisture left in that area. After that, you have to use a damp cloth to wipe the area. When wiping the area, make sure you apply a little pressure so that the urine can be completely blot out from the carpet. If the stain persists, you have to keep repeating the cat urine cleaning process for a few times.
For cat urine cleaning on the flooring, the usage of enzymes to remove the cat urine is next step. You can buy these enzymes from a janitorial store. The pet stores do not sell the enzyme cleaner. The enzyme cleaner is the last resort to remove the stain that breaks down the proteins in the cat urine and thereby leaving a fresh carpet for use.
