How to Get Rid of Cat Pee Smell for Good!

There are many reasons that a cat may begin urinating in places other than their litter box. No matter why kitty does it, the strong smell of cat pee can soon permeate every nook and cranny of your home. Read on, and we’ll guide you through getting rid of this smell forever.

Biocide Pet Odor Eliminator

Biocide Systems Pet Odor Eliminator.

In order to eliminate the smell of cat urine from your home, it’s important to be able to eliminate the urine completely. The only way to do this is to oxidize odor molecules. That’s where Biocide Systems’ line of Pet Odor Eliminators comes in. Keep in mind, it’s imperative that removing the odor is done in a way that is completely safe for you and your cat.

How Does Biocide Pet Odor Eliminator Work?

The vapor of Biocide Pet Odor Eliminators reach and penetrate every surface where odor is lurking. This vapor contains chlorine dioxide or Cl02. Cl02 is positively charged, meaning it is attracted to negatively charged odor molecules. When trying to get rid of cat pee odor from the whole room, the Room Shocker is most appropriate.

Our Liquid Shocker, however, is our pet odor eliminator that generates a liquid chlorine dioxide. This is the better option for cat pee stains on surfaces like floors, because you can target a specific area.

Chlorine dioxide is by no means a new invention. Discovered in 1811, it’s now used to treat many food products, including poultry and fish.

Ruling Out Health Issues First

There’s little doubt that getting rid of the cat urine smell in your home is a top priority; after all, you’re reading this guide! However, before you begin to do this, it’s important to rule out any serious health issues.

Contrary to what some believe, cats do not exhibit this behavior because they want to exact some sort of revenge. Cats will urinate outside their clean litter box if they have experienced pain while urinating in the box. They associate the litter box with pain.

Painful urination can occur as the result of a blockage, which is an emergency situation that can place your cat’s life in serious danger if not treated immediately.

Your cat may also be peeing outside the litter box as a response to stress or because they have an undiagnosed infection or condition like kidney disease or hyperthyroidism. Regardless, it’s important to see the vet as soon as possible so that kitty can get a thorough check-up.

What Makes Cat Pee Smell So Bad?

After your kitty has peed in the house, over time the bacteria in their urine will die and give off an odor that smells like ammonia. Left for even longer, cat urine will begin to emit smelly compounds called mercaptans, which will only make the smell more pervasive.

Bad-smelling urine can also be the result if your cat is older or is a male cat who hasn’t been fixed. It’s for all of these reasons that removing the strong smell should be done as soon as you’ve found the source.

The Best Ways to Remove Urine

Hand cleaning cat urine off carpet with cat lying next to it.

You’ll need to ensure you’ve removed as much urine as possible, so grab a rag and use cold water to wet the spot. Then, blot—never scrub—it. Don’t ever wash urine-stained clothing in hot water in your washing machine or use a steam cleaner, as both of these will only cause the smell to spread and intensify. Instead, wash in cool water with a quarter cup of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda, and let air dry.

Next, you can try the following cat pee smell elimination solutions:

  • Vinegar and water
  • Baking soda
  • Dish soap
  • Floor cleaning products
  • Biocide Systems Pet Odor Eliminator

Vinegar and Water

Combine white or apple cider vinegar with water in a 1:1 ratio. Spray or soak the urine spot with this solution and let sit for up to five minutes. Blot with a paper towel or clean rag, repeat until the smell is gone, and then allow to air dry.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is famous for neutralizing cat pee odors. After you’ve finished soaking and blotting using vinegar and water, sprinkle the area with baking soda. This will ensure that any cat urine odors left behind on floors or carpet are eliminated over time.

Dish Soap

Ideal for cat pee spots on hard floors, dish soap can be all you need to get rid of the smell. Mix one tablespoon of soap into two cups of cool water. Then soak a clean cloth in the solution and wipe the spot as many times as is needed. Here, again, you can sprinkle baking soda over the area for long-term odor fighting.

Floor Cleaner

Hardwood floor cleaner can be another way to get rid of cat urine on hard surfaces. Just mix according to the instructions on the bottle, soak a clean cloth, and wipe.
