Pet Urine is the WORST! Once a pet has urinated on your wood floor or on bedding it can be a real headache and a very stinky problem. The most important thing you want to remember about pet urine is that you should never use ammonia to clean pet urine. Bleach is the best cleaner. However, it is not always possible to use bleach on certain surfaces such as wood floors. So here we will talk about different alternatives for cleaning pet urine from various surfaces.
If a pet has urinated in your bed, remove all bedding and run through the washing machine using a detergent and color-safe bleach. For the mattress, prepare a bucket of hot water with a small amount of laundry detergent and color-safe bleach and a large hand towel. Use the hand towel as a rag to wet and scrub the mattress with the detergent and bleach solution, this will remove pet urine and smells instantly. Don't be afraid to really wet the mattress and scrub the affected area. Take a dry towel and blot the mattress rigorously to soak up excess water. Apply a fan to the mattress to dry. Once the mattress has dried, Lysol Anti-Bacterial Spray will give the mattress a fresh clean scent and disinfect the mattress.
If a pet has urinated on a wood floor you may not want to use bleach to clean it up. We have found that this product Clorox Pet Urine Remover has worked very well for us when cleaning tough stains and odors from pets on wood flooring. There are many products out there but we have not found that any work as good as the Clorox Pet Urine Remover. In extreme cases where regular cleaning does not work, floors may be re-sanded and treated to remove the stains and smells.
Overall pet urine can be cleaned efficiently with bleach and hot soapy water.
Sometimes our pets have accidents, please remember not to blow your top when you have found that your pet has had an accident. It's abusive to hit or yell at your pet for having an accident. Remember to love your pet and make corrections to behavior the right way because your pet depends on only you for everything, You are his/her life!
