Using the wrong cleaning methods can make these stains worse. Some people rub cat urine stains when cleaning it. As with any stain, it’s a good idea not to rub on carpet because it spreads the stain and pushes it deeper into the fibers, making cleaning difficult. When dirt is deep in the carpet, it is causing damage to the fibers.
Deep dirt actually damages carpet fibers by grinding it up when walked on. Cat urine has a very strong odor and is difficult to remove from the carpet. Many pet owners use household cleaning products to clean up dog or cat accidents. But they are surprised that the treated area often smells worse than before cleaning. The reason is that many household cleaning products contain ammonia. Ammonia is very good at killing germs, but it is one of the components of dog and cat urine. When used to clean a stain, the cat will smell the ammonia that it thinks is urine. This will cause the cat to urinate in the same area over and over.
Make your own non-toxic homemade cleaner.
Use a mixture of 20 percent white vinegar and 80 percent water.
Put the mixture in a spray bottle.
Spray the stain. Then pat dry with paper towels.
Repeat if necessary.
Do not rub the stain as it can make it worse.
It is very important to clean quickly before the urine dries.
Dry well and do not leave the carpet wet.
