You’ve probably smelled it before. Cat urine is by far the worst smell imaginable. When a friend came to me saying he was ready to sell his multi-family property in San Diego, but didn’t want to remove all the carpeting, I had found just the right solution. Little did he know that Chlorine Dioxide is the best way to remove cat urine in homes.
Desperate To Get Rid of Cat Urine Smell?
I could see why my friend was so concerned. There were pee spots everywhere on the carpeting throughout the house. It looked like the previous tenants had locked a pack of wild animals in the house alone for months, with no way for them to get outside.
The cat urine smell was so bad I had to hold a shirt over my nose, which didn’t help much with the serious bad odors. My eyes watered.
The longer cat urine and dog pee sits in your carpet (or anywhere else in the house), the worse the problem can become. The bacteria will build up and the urine may even seep through the carpeting into the pad or sub-floor below, making it that much harder to get rid of that nasty smell. Pet urine can even seep into concrete!
What Not To Do:
The quest to remove the bad pet odors started in all the wrong places.
Bleach — Initially, my friend was thinking of using bleach to clean the concrete floors after removing the pet urine stained carpeting. Unfortunately, bleach will not remove the odor of dog pee or cat urine. It simply will disinfect the area. Not to mention, bleach is harmful to breathe, and it’s toxic for pets, too.
Ammonia — If you want to make the pet odors even worse, go with ammonia. This is right at the top of the list of things NOT to use to clean up cat urine or dog pee. Cat and dog urine already has an ammonia odor, so more ammonia will only make the smell worse.
Homemade Remedies — While the average household items such as dish detergent, baking soda, and peroxide all work a little bit, they never truly eliminate the pet urine smell.

Fortunately, there is a permanent and effective solution that we can offer at NonScents Pro. It’s the best way to remove pet odors in San Diego and Phoenix. We know because we’ve used it in our own homes!
My cat, Garfield, was diagnosed with kidney disease, which affected his bladder control. Before the diagnosis, while we were on vacation, Garfield began using areas in our bathroom and living room as his personal litter box, destroying the floors over the course of a week! Luckily, once we found the problem we made him his own little kitty condo so the smell wouldn’t spread any further, and he lived another happy two years. But the stench of cat urine lingered in our home until we found chlorine dioxide.
We did an overnight treatment with chlorine dioxide to get rid of the cat urine smell, and the next day our home was completely refreshed!
