Cat Urine

So what’s the best way to treat a urine stain or smell on your carpet from a cat? Firstly, it must be said that the earlier you treat the urine stain the easier it will be for you to remove the foul odour. As the urine decays while sitting on your carpet or sofa, it will partly convert to a gas form, which causes the strong ammonia smell. If left untreated, the urine can seep below the carpet to the tiles or wood underneath. One of the best ways to treat cat odours or stains is by mixing white vinegar and water, and then blotting it using a thick (and old!) bath towel or heavy cloth. If the urine has been there for some time, you may need to investigate some specific products intended for stain removal, but give the white vinegar and water mix a try first and see if you come right.
