Step One : Identify where the urine is. (Very Important)
If you do not know where the cat pee odor is coming from, then here are some tips to help find the source of the contamination and help remove the odor.
Tip Number One.
Check at the back of furniture and in corners where furniture is present.
Unlike if you are treating urine smells in your yard which is easy to find, inside a home can be alot harder. Look in social areas such the TV room, the sitting room, any areas that have lounge suites and furniture and have areas where a cat is able to get behind and pee up against the piece of furniture.
Look behind couches, chairs and furniture
Tip Number Two.
Look for any obvious areas with staining in the carpet. Because cat pee contains uric acid and salts it tends to make carpet color look a bit darker as shown below. When looking behind lounge suites and pieces of furniture, quite often the contaminated area is darker than the surrounding carpet.
Look for darker patches on the carpet which can indicate cat urine
Tip Number Three.

Step Three. Leave the chemicals in the carpet to work.
Walk away and make a cup of coffee or read a book. Wait for 5-10 minutes to allow the chemical to work.The formulation will then break down the urine including uric acid and alkaline crystals aka salt! . Once the carpet dries the odor will be gone and if you can still smell it re peat the above steps. Job done!!
Step Four. Removing the residues using towels or a wet vac. OPTIONAL
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 along with the residues. 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 area will dry quite quickly.
If it is cold and wintery use a lot of towels and then put a dehumidifier in the room to assist in the drying process. This is how to get urine smell out of carpet

*Carpets react differently to chemicals. Please consult with an industry professional about your carpet before treatment begins.
So you have learned how to get cat pee smell out of carpet and we wish you success.
Here are some observations from Craig that he has gleaned over the years that may help you.
* Cat Urine is a real problem because it contains a high content of salt which makes the urine odor last for many years to come in carpet, furniture and concrete floors.
* The odor tends to intensify and create odor issues when the humidity is high or the temperature in the room warms up.
* Often over winter time, cat urine odor tends to be quite dull and not a major problem. Then comes the first day of spring and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly the room is filled with that disgusting odor as it heats up..
We have done some really tough urine removal jobs over the years. Some jobs need an Ozone Treatment.

The durability of cat urine is closely linked to the solution for fixing it.The components of urine such as uric acid and salt combined were the offending ingredients that make the urine odor so long lasting in fabrics, carpet,wood and concrete. I knew if I could find a way to remove the salt and uric acid I would also find the solution to removing the cat urine odor.
After many experimentation I finally came up with a solution that worked instantly on new cat urine and also worked on older cat urine. I perfected my techniques and odor issues turned from a headache into a full time career for me. how to get cat pee smell out of carpet starts with the contaminants i.e uric acid, salt, and other ingredients of cat urine to remove the odor. More often than not some areas will be worse than others. For example if a cat pees consistently in one area then it is likely to smell stronger than areas it just sprays on.
