Jonathnn, if a cat urinates on a rug, what is the best product and method to remove the stain and odor?
The first thing you should do is try and absorb as much of the urine as possible using paper towels or anything that can pick up liquid. Next, you should attempt to remove any stain by using an over the counter rug cleaner like Resolve. If you have a carpet cleaning machine, put it to use. This will help the cause. But since these products are just cleaners, you’ll need to kill off the odor with the NNZ we have featured in our ODOR CONTROL ARTICLE. Spray it over the entire area making sure you soak it down enough to get to the nap of the carpeting. This will insure you deactivate it. In most cases a single treatment will eliminate the smell but remember, the key is coverage. If the urine soaked down to the sub flooring or cement under the carpet, you need to get some of the NNZ there too. The good news is once you get the contaminated surfaces treated, the odor will subside immediately. So if you still detect an odor the day following the treatment, you didn’t succeed so apply some more.
