Question Urine Carpets - October 3rd 2015, 11:24 PM

I do realize urine is a permanent stain and keeps its odor no matter what. Is there anything to reduce the smell of dog pee in the carpet? I've steamed cleaned my carpet, I have candles lit, and sometimes I put carpet powder just to basically mask the urine smell.

I've asked for hardwood floors but they won't put them in and currently I can't move right now. Any suggestions?

I've heard using bees wax candles helps with odors, is this a fact and does it actually help with the urine smell?

There's stuff you can buy in the UK especially for pet messes on the floor that guarantees to remove stain and smell. It's called Simple Solution or something here: http://www.petsathome.com/shop/en/pe...rine-destroyer
I know I couldn't get it out with simple stain remover, because I bought them all in our last rental. But this specially formulated stuff works, despite having to buy a few bottles for re-applying on particular stubborn spots. I doubt it's the only brand that does stuff like this.
Can you try amazon maybe? Surely there has to be an equivalent



Take as long as you need.

I don't know if this helps with urine, but I use a foaming cleaner on my carpets to scrub cat vomit stains. It's called 409 and it's really good. Our carpets are beat up from the people who lived in our house before us, and when the carpet dries after I've scrubbed it, there's a huge clean part of the carpet that is really noticeable compared to the rest of the old carpet.

As for the smell, amazon has some pet carpet cleaner that smells like lavender and there's one that smells like vanilla.

I don't know if it works on old pee stains. But we use FOLEX when a dog pees on our carpet and it takes the stain and smell out instantly it also takes out wine stains, blood and pretty much any stain as long as you use it as soon as possible.

Just be true to who you are

White vinegar and baking soda will really help!

Re: Urine Carpets - October 6th 2015, 03:55 PM

I will try all of the suggestions, I know some products aren't available in Canada.

Awhile ago, few weeks ago, I bought a pet spot steam cleaner, it helped and I had done a big section on my carpet but the odor came back on the third/fourth day. Really I need to move into a place that is hardwood floors.

It would be a pain to steam clean, spot clean every fourth day.

Candles seem to not work as well, or I have crappy candles (some scents I can't use do to allergies) but in the past have helped greatly with masking the smell. (as bad as that sounds) I just hope when I have guests over Saturday for Thanksgiving they won't notice it.

We have a Vax steam cleaner and that really seems to help. You have to clean the carpet really thoroughly but it really seems to do the job.
