How To Get Rid Of Dog Odor In A Garage


Ken The Odor Dude

Dog odor comes in a few different forms and it is important to determine what sort you have. Here are the three most popular forms of dog odor. All dog odors benefit from cleaning with the formulation specified below in conjunction with heat if required.

1. Dog urine odor in concrete

2. General dog odor in concrete from the oils in the dogs fur and often from oils expressed from the anal glands (certain breeds of dogs smell stronger than others). Dog odor can be increased in damp and humid conditions

3. Dog poo odor in concrete (when dog feces residues get walked into the porous concrete and then bacteria forms and dog poo odor is created.

All odors can be easily fixed using a cleaning formulation specifically designed for concrete floors. The formulation will clean dog oils, dog urine and dog feces from any garage floor made of concrete or wood. The steps to follow are….

How to get all types of dog odor out of concrete

Step No 1.Make the formulation using 4 simple household chemicals mixed into a large bucket. Very cheap to make and goes a long way.USE FORMULA TWO

Mixing the odor neutralizer

Step No 2. Apply the formulation to the flooring substrate to see where the contamination’s are using a garden sprayer or a garden watering can.



Look for white foaming. More often than not some areas will be worse than others. For example if a dog sleeps in an area then it is likely to smell stronger than areas it just walks on.

Step No 3. Broom in gently and leave for 5-10 minutes ensuring the floor is kept wet all the time. This gives time to allow the chemicals to work.The formulation will then eat into the contaminants i.e dog oils, dog urine, and dog feces to remove the odor.


Step No 4. When the foaming has stopped you can remove the residues with old towels or you can suck them up with a wet vacuum cleaner. I often flush the area with warm water and then suck that up with a wet vacuum. (Preferred method)

Old towels does just as good a job but you do need a lot of them to get all the residues. If it is a hot summers day then the garage floor will dry quite quickly. if it is cold and wintery use a lot of towels orĀ as shown below a wet vacuum cleaner.

    A rental house had dog urine odor throughout. It was so bad you could not stay inside home. ServPro disinfected concrete floors and we put new pad, carpet, painted throughout and replaced window coverings. ServPro used Ozone machine two times. House still smells.

    Any suggestions? house is now vacant

      Hi Bree

      Disinfecting the floors will not neutralize the urine, unless it is a chemical designed for it, nor will ozone. Ozone cannot break down oils or salts in the concentration that a commercial machine puts out and urine has salt in it hence why it is ineffective on urine contaminations.

      The formulation we use is very strong and on a concrete floor it will eat into the urine and foam up on the contaminated areas. You can see on this page in photo 3 the massive amount of foaming. This was the formulation boosted considerably as the floor was extreme like yours.
      Then the floor is cleaned using hot water and the chemical put down again. If you get high foaming the second time you then know you are in for a long haul and have to keep repeating the process.

      Hope that helps
