How To Get Rid Of Dog Urine Smell

posted in Home & Garden
01/17/2015
  • Ensure your dog is no longer urinating inside the house. It will be impossible to remove the smell if it is an ongoing problem. If the dog is not house trained, make this your first priority.
    If your dog is grown but still has problems, experts recommend that you let the dog outside more frequently. Place the dog in an area that has hardwood floors and absorbent training pads when they are in the house. Be consistent with your response to urination, scolding immediately after the event.

  • Remove clothing and other messes from the floor. The urine smell can be caused by pillows, rugs and other items that are best cleaned or thrown away to get rid of the smell.
    Clean affected clothes and bed sheets with an enzymatic cleaner. You can also use a large dose of baking soda added into the laundry along with your regular detergent.

  • Consider replacing your carpet, if you believe the stains have soaked through to the carpet pad. You will not be able to clean, rinse and dry the pad, so it will hold pet urine odors until it is replaced.

  • Buy a hand held black light. You can find this on the Internet or at a large pet store. It will allow you to see old urine stains and target your work.

  • Buy an enzymatic cleaner. This is best used with fresh stains that haven't previously been cleaned; however, it can be applied to all stains. You can find these cleaners in supermarkets, pet stores and on the Internet.

  • Soak up as much of the urine as possible with paper towels. Try to get to the accident as soon as possible to limit the amount of urine that soaks through to the carpet pad.

  • Spray clean water on top of the stain. Use a wet vacuum to extract the dirty water. If you do not have a wet vac, use paper towels to soak up the dirty water.
    Do not use too much water on the stain. A large puddle of fresh water can create problem spots in the carpet where mold can grow beneath the carpet.

  • Sprinkle the area with baking soda for extra odor neutralizing power.
