Having a pet is awesome, but when they have an accident on the floor, it really stinks (pun intended). 

Seriously, though, pet urine is one of the hardest stains to get out. Even if you’ve cleaned it yourself with spray-on solutions, you may still notice urine’s pungent, easily distinguishable smell anytime you’re near the spot where the accident happened.

Why is pet urine next to impossible to get out?

Have you ever spilled soda and had it dry before you cleaned it? Or maybe left soda in a cup for too long? You’ll notice that what you’re left with isn’t liquid at all. Instead, it’s a sticky, weird goo that is difficult to clean. That’s because the water in the soda evaporated, and you’re left with the soda’s concentrated syrup. 

Urine does essentially the same thing when it dries. Pet urine is so difficult to get out because it dries, crystalizes, and embeds itself into your carpet’s fibers.

Whatever water was in the urine evaporates, and what’s left is a concentrated version of all the waste products that you’re pet expelled from their body when they peed. Since your pet’s waste is so concentrated once it dries, it sticks to the fiber of your carpet, making it impossible to simply scrub out. 

You’re stuck.

What can I do about pet urine odor?

If your goal is just to mask the smell of urine there are plenty of products that will help you, but you’ll probably notice that the smell just keeps coming back. That’s because the urine is still in your carpet off-gassing. In fact, pet urine can off-gas for up to five years if left untreated
