How To Get Rid Of Cat Urine Smell
Marsha had tried baking soda, salt, vinegar… She tried products claiming enzymatic action, but these seemed to merely mask the smell. That’s when she thought of Activated Charcoal, and decided to write in to see if it might be a good idea.
Activated Charcoal—A proven solution for removing cat urine odor
Clearly, based on Amazon reviews, activated charcoal is phenomenal for actually removing the smell of cat urine. There is one catch though—all of these reviews were for our product that controls the smell of urine in the litter box. But, if it works to control the odor from a litter box, shouldn’t it also work when your cat decides to go on the carpet? Absolutely, but you have to take certain precautions to ensure your beautiful white carpet isn’t ruined. After all, Activated charcoal can be messy if you’re not careful.
How to get rid of Cat Urine smell on carpet, furniture or around the house
First of all, you need to use the correct charcoal product. Pure Non-Scents is designed specifically for odor removal. It is excellent for removing smoke odors, fridge odors, furniture odors and even skunk odors from your home.
Now, when it comes to removing cat pee smell from your carpet, one must proceed with caution. If you’ve already shampooed the carpet, and the smell is still there, never fear. What you will need to do is apply Pure Non-Scents directly where the cat peed. Be careful though, as it can stain. We recommend putting a decent sized piece of cheesecloth down, and then pouring the Pure Non-Scents on top. The odor will dissipate within the first few hours, but don’t be fooled, the enemy is still alive and kicking. In order to totally eradicate the odor, it needs to stay there for three weeks. If your carpet is a really light color, make sure to test the PNS out in a corner or a closet first. BE CAREFUL.
Why does activated charcoal work for removing odors?
AC was first developed for military gas masks for the removal of deadly chemicals that could be in air. Scientists know that one of the main reasons charcoal is so effective in removing bad odor is due to its extremely porous structure. Just one teaspoon of activated charcoal will typically have the surface area of an entire football field. That is one giant vacuum to suck up bad odors. Per gram, there is no other agent that can match charcoal when it comes to adsorbing contaminants.
