It can be difficult to mask the smell of a cat that has relieved themselves outside of the litter box. If your cat has an accident, whether on the carpet, furniture, sheets, or clothing, act quickly to eliminate the odor and the stain. Cats will often go back to where they have peed if they can still smell it, so cleaning it up right away can help keep them from doing it again.
If you own a cat, eliminating the odor of urine is a top priority. However, once this is accomplished, it is just as crucial to identify the root of the problem in order to put an end to the undesirable behavior.
So, how can you get rid of the smell of cat urine?
1. How to Remove Cat Pee Smell from a Couch?
Cat urine is difficult to remove from upholstery, and if it has seeped through to the padding, it can leave behind lasting odors, mold, and mildew. Fortunately, with the correct tools and knowledge, understanding how to remove cat urine odors from your couch isn’t too difficult.
To eliminate the cat urine odor, an upholstery cleaning machine is your best bet. Scrubbing attachments are included with these cleaners to help you scrub away stains and odors from your couch. You don’t have to worry about overdoing it by soaking the pee region because you can easily suck up the water, urine, and cleaner when you’re done.
Use the carpet cleaner’s attachment to soak the stain in a natural cleaning solution created to get rid of pet odors. After that, clean the area by vacuuming up the urine. But you should know that it may take more than one round of soaking and vacuuming to get rid of the cat urine stain and odor.
Enzyme cleaners are effective alternatives to expensive upholstery cleaning machines. Products containing enzymes are called “enzymatic cleaners” and they are used to remove stains and odors. Making your own enzyme cleaner from natural components is simple. In a spray bottle, mix 3 parts white vinegar with 1 part water, and that’s it!
Once you have the mix, you’ll do the following:
- Use dry towels to absorb as much of the cat urine as you can.
- Use the enzymatic cleaner to soak the urine stain well, making sure the solution gets into everything.
- Let the mixture settle overnight.
- No rinsing is required, however you may need to apply it more than once to remove the urine smell and stains.
