Cleaning Cat Urine Off Your Floor: The 3 Best Cat Urine Removers

Our cats may be the most adorable creatures in the world, but cat urine cleaning soil remains an important task. Not only do you need to remove the cat’s urine, you also need to remove the odor. Otherwise, your cats will smell the remains of the urine and will urinate there again. To effectively remove cat urine odor, you need to remove bacteria, which are the main cause of the odor.

One of the best cat urine removers is Natures Miracle. This is an enzyme cleaner; you can buy it at places like Target, WalMart, or Petsmart. It is a concentrated liquid and comes in a white bottle with a red cap. The instructions on the bottle are pretty easy to follow. It not only cleans cat urine from your floors, but can even remove it from carpets and fabrics. This stuff can be a bit expensive, so you may want to get a black light to use with it. Shine the black light in the dark and it will make cat urine stains glow yellow or green. You can then use Natures Miracle in those places, without washing the entire floor or carpet.

Any commercial enzyme cleaner will probably work as a cat urine remover, it doesn’t have to be Natures Miracle. The only thing is that enzyme cleaners can be a bit finicky. Not all work on all types of stains. You want to make sure you get a brand that works for cat urine disposal. So the best place to buy some is probably your local pet store. Look where they sell cat litter. Better yet, ask the sales staff where they keep the enzyme cleaners to clean up cat urine.

Another good way to clean up cat urine and its odor is to use a steam cleaner. Friends have had good results with the Polti Vaporetto which uses steam to disinfect and remove dirt. This steam is also very effective at killing bacteria in cat urine and works on both floors and carpets. However, the Polti is expensive. Something cheaper like the Light and Easy Steam Mop works almost as well, for a fraction of the price.

If you’re on a tight budget, you can soak the spot where your cat peed with strong disinfectants like Dettol or Listerine. You may need to repeat this a few times to remove all of the odor. Pouring boiling water over the spot can also work, just be careful. Some types of bleach can kill bacteria and should work too. But you want to check the ingredients list before you use it. Make sure it doesn’t contain ammonia, otherwise it will entice your cats to urinate there again.

So, here are the three best ways to clean cat urine off your floor:
1) enzymatic cleaners like Natures Miracle;
2) Steam cleaners;
3) Any strong disinfectant (like the one used in hospitals).
