  • Removing the cats from the home.
    No matter how much you clean it, they will be able to smell it. We even had our carpet replaced twice.

    Guess what, we're not a pet-free house :)

  • How long have the stains and smells been there?
    It might be to late to get the cat urine out. Cat urine is very destructive and the longer it sit there the more time it has to eat through carpet, padding, and then the base wood.
    Out of everything I have tried, vinegar, bleach, cleaning products for pet stains/odor I had the best results with Nature's Miracle

    If that doesn't work then it is probably to late to save anything and the floors will have to be replaced.

  • The only thing that actually works is enzymes. Look for pet cleaners with it, the totally saturate the area and allow it to dry.

  • honestly, nothing really fully gets that smell out. i had cats all my life until 3 years ago. we replaced walls, flooring, carpets, etc - you can STILL smell it when its hot out!

  • Dampen the spot w/water, then pour a generous amount of Borax on top and wait until it drys completely. Then vacuum, if still there do again 2-3 times.
