Pets love us unconditionally and make our lives a million times better. But when they have an accident on the floor, it really stinks (pun intended).
Seriously, though, pet urine is really hard to get out. Even if you’ve tried to cleaned it yourself with carpet cleaning sprays and elbow grease, you may still notice its pungent, easily-distinguishable smell anytime you’re near the spot where the accident happened.
Why is pet urine next to impossible to get out?
Pet urine stains feel impossible to remove. But why?
Have you ever spilled soda and had it dry before you cleaned it? Or maybe left soda in a cup for too long? You’ll notice that what you’re left with doesn't look like soda at all. It's a sticky, weird goo that is difficult to clean. That’s because the water in the soda evaporated, and what you're left with the soda’s sticky, concentrated syrup.
Urine does essentially the same thing as soda when it dries.
Whatever water was in the urine evaporates, and what’s left is a concentrated version of all the waste products that you’re pet expelled when they urinated. Because your pet's waste is then so concentrated, it sticks to the fiber of your carpet, making it impossible to simply scrub out.
You’re stuck with the stain...
...or are you?
What can I do about pet urine odor?
If your goal is just to cover up the smell of urine, there are plenty of products that will help you mask the smell of pet urine. Because the urine is still there, though, you’ll probably notice that the smell just keeps coming back once the air freshener wears off.
That’s because the urine is still in your carpet off-gassing. In fact, pet urine can off-gas for up to five years if left untreated. That's a long time to have your home smell like pee.
What is The Best Product to Remove Pet Urine Odor For Good?
