So your dog or cat peed on your concrete floor. And because concrete is porous, the urine seeped in nice and deep. So now your basement or garage smells of animal urine. Now what? Don’t despair; you just need to eliminate the urine smell at the source. The good news is it’s easier than you think. Read on to see how.
Eliminating animal urine odor from concrete floors – step-by-step instructions
All it takes to remove dog or cat urine smell from concrete is the right odor removers and a few minutes of your time. It really is that easy – and it really does work.
Here’s what you do:
Step 1: Clean the animal urine from the concrete floor
We always recommend the all-purpose cleaner and animal odor neutralizer Purodora Disinfectant and Animal Odor Neutralizer. It offers better results in less time, and can be used for all sorts of general cleaning/odor neutralizing tasks around the house.
- Wipe up any excess animal urine from the floor.
- Clean the floor with 2/3 cup of Purodora Disinfectant and Animal Odor Neutralizer diluted in 1 gallon (4 L) of warm water.
- Allow the concrete to air dry (in hot, dry weather) or use a heater/fan (during cold or damp weather).
Step 2: Eliminate the cat or dog urine smell from the floor
You can clean the surface of the floor all you want, but unless you get to the urine deep inside the pores of the concrete, you’ll never get rid of that powerful urine odor.
To do that, you’ll need a powerful urine odor remover that can penetrate concrete. The best product for getting pee smell out of any surface (both porous and non-porous) is Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer.
It works miracles on concrete, hardwood or floating floors, carpets, mattresses or sofas – and best of all, it’s safe for you and your pet, nor will it damage the concrete. One treatment is all it takes to get pet urine smell out of surfaces forever.
Just spray and walk away! (Seriously, if you have a pet, this is the product you need.)
- Once the floor is clean and dry, spray Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer undiluted directly onto the affected area.
What to do if Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer leaves a dark ring on fabrics
Alcohol-based products like Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer can sometimes leave a dark ring on some colored fabrics where the dye has not set properly. No need to worry! Simply rub the fabric with a damp cloth and the stain will immediately disappear.
We know you’re desperate to get rid of that pet urine odor from your floor.
Please think twice before trying a home remedy. Not all will be safe for you, your family, your pet or even your floor. Avoid adding to your frustration. Stick to products that are proven to be safe and effective.
What to do if your cat or dog keeps peeing in the same spot
When dogs and cats urinate, they release a pheromone that incites them to keep relieving themselves on that same spot. If your cat or dog has peed several times on the same spot, it’s possible that all this urine has penetrated deep into the concrete – possibly deeper than the first treatment with Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer was able to reach.
If this is the case, simply re-spray the floor with Purodora Urine Odor Neutralizer. This second treatment will seep deeper into the concrete floor and eventually work its way down the urine mass.
Could your pet’s peeing on the floor be health-related?
Sometimes a health problem is behind a pet relieving itself outside the litter box. It might also be due to anxiety. If the problem is fairly new, pay attention to any recent changes in your pet’s environment or daily habits. If in doubt, consult your veterinarian.
