Getting Rid of Urine Smell

December 07, 2020 2 min read

Anyone with kids, or pets for that matter, knows that the smell of urine can be tough to get rid of. The key to removing urine, whether it is human or pet, is to use an enzyme based product.  The enzyme binds with the protein component of the urine so that it can be removed.  Cleansers without this feature simply mask the odor but do not permanently remove it.

Fresh Stains

Odorzyme is a fresh smelling enzyme based cleaner.  This cleaner can simply be sprayed on the spot to saturate it and be allowed to dry.  It can be used on fresh stains to neutralize the protein enzyme.

This product can also be used as a laundry additive if urine smell remains in clothing.  Often, just washing in hot water will set in the smell, not remove it.  Presoaking in Odorzyme before doing regular laundry effectively rids clothing, bedding, incontinence pads, etc of urine stains and odor.

Set-in Stains

If you have a set-in stain on your mattress or floor, we recommend Urine Erase, which is an enzyme based 2-step cleaner.  The first step is to mix the enzyme packet with tepid water and saturate the stain for 8 hours.  The second step is to use the special solution that comes in the bottle to saturate the stain and let air dry.  The amount of product that you use should roughly be the same as the amount of urine that caused the stain. The gallon size container can be used to large jobs, such as carpets or floors that pets have urinated on.  New home owners or apartment dwellers whose floors and carpets are smelly from previous owners’ pets report that using Urine Erase permanently erases the odor.

Once you get your mattress cleaned, I recommend that you buy a thin Breathable Waterproof Cover for all the mattresses at your house.  This comfortable cover will protect all your mattresses from further wetting episodes as well as bed bugs and dust mites.  If it becomes soiled, it’s simple to remove it and machine wash and dry. The best thing about this waterproof cover is that you don’t even know it is there.  It’s noiseless and breathable but in place when you need it.
