How to Remove Cat Urine odor

Cat urine can become astonishingly smelly stuff. As anyone who empties a litter box knows, the ammonia stench can literally bring tears to your eyes. Fortunately for us cat lovers, removing cat urine odor is something at which either Nok-Out or Sniper™ excels.

An important thing to keep in mind is that these products are oxidizers and when they come into direct contact with something smelly, they oxidize that stuff, changing it into something that no longer has an odor. Direct contact is required for this product to be able to do it’s job. Also, don’t spray Nok-Out or SNiPER™ onto the area and then wipe it dry; it needs time for the oxidization to take place. Allow it to air dry naturally.

Hard Surfaces such as Walls or Floors

These are easy. Simply spray Nok-Out or SNiPER™ on the affected area, smear it around to ensure good coverage and walk away, allowing the area to air dry naturally. Nok-Out and SNiPER™ leave very little residue and are not corrosive, so there is no need to wipe it up.

Carpets

Carpets are more of a challenge because it is more difficult to achieve direct contact. If the urine has sunk down through the fibers, past the mat and backing, into the pad and down to the flooring below that, then Nok-Out needs to go down there also in order to be able to do what it does.

First off, use your nose to locate the affected areas. If this step proves difficult, you may want to purchase a hand-held black light from a hardware store. Pet urine will glow under a black light and you can darken the room and use a piece of chalk to lightly mark areas that are glowing.

Once located, you can begin treatment. If it is a ‘fresh’ puddle in your carpet, get an old towel and blot up as much of the urine as possible.

Test for colorfastness by spraying with Nok-Out or SNiPER™ in an inconspicuous place and then rubbing vigorously with a white cloth for a few moments. In the unlikely event that there is any color transfer – stop immediately; the dyes are not colorfast. You may still be able to use Nok-Out or SNiPER™, but you should dilute by at least 4:1 (water:Nok-Out or SNiPER™).

For carpets, you can dilute Nok-Out by anywhere from 4:1 up to 10:1. This aids in getting Nok-Out down to the floor level. Spray or pur it onto the spot and use your feet to try and force the mixture outwards from the area. For sure the urine will have spread sideways and you are trying to ensure that the diluted mixture comes into contact with all or that stuff. Allow it to sit for 20 – 30 minutes, then use a wet-vac to try and suck up as much excess fluid as possible or use old towels to blot up as much as you can. Put fans on the area and allow to dry before giving it the ‘sniff’ test.

Area rugs are easier – you can simply spray both sides and perhaps massage it in with your fingers or something. Again, you are trying to ensure that Nok-Out comes into direct contact with the smelly stuff.

Upholstered Furniture

Removing urine odor from upholstered furniture is similar to carpets in that the urine is likely to have sunk down below the upholstery and into the ‘stuffing’. First, test that the fabric is colorfast in an inconspicuous area. Most modern dyes are powerfully colorfast, but better to err on the side of caution here. Try simply spraying the area thoroughly and allow to air dry. If you are lucky, the urine will not have sunk deep and a fairly light spraying will achieve direct contact. Mission success easily!

In the event that a light spraying is not effective, it is likely that the urine has sunk deeply into the stuffing and therefore, Nok-Out will also have to penetrate deeply to be able to do it’s job. For this type of application it is best to dilute Nok-Out at least 50 / 50 with water. Spray heavily enough that this mixture will be absorbed deeply into the stuffing. It may take up to a week for this to dry fully, but wait until it is fully dry to give it the sniff test.

Takeaway Points

1) Nok-Out and SNiPER™ are both oxidizers and when they come into direct contact with the smelly stuff, ‘oxidize’ (think chemically change) that stuff into something that no longer has an odor. So direct contact is required for this product to be able to work.

2) For application to deeply layered surfaces such as overstuffed furniture or carpets, it is usually a good idea to dilute Nok-Out - it will still be effective and will make getting contact with the smelly stuff that is deeply embedded all the easier. And, it will make this product go further. Efficiency is good!
