After peeing on the carpet....smell???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I need some advice...Kind of a long story, but the condensed version is about 1 1/2 weeks ago, I noticed someone was peeing on the carpet outside our bathroom.Turns out it is about a 6 foot strech that is affected. We think we have gotten the peeing stopped, we never found out for certian who was doing it, but I had my suspissions, and she went to the vet. We also had some changes in our house recently, like my husband changing the configuration of the cat boxes, so I cleaned them out and replaced them back to their original spots. Sophie checked out ok at the vet and I think the peeing has stopped ( I am 99.5% sure it has) My problem is since the affected area was so big, we had to use A LOT of cleaner and water, literally soaking the carpet to get the smell out, and now that the area is drying, the carpet is getting a musty smell. We don't want to put anything else on the carpet while it is drying, but does anyone know of anything that might help with this smell, I was thinking to be placed around the house/area, to soak up some of the smell. I was thinking maybe bowls of vinager placed around the area might help with the smell of the carpet drying?? Any suggestions??

Just on a side note, the cleaner I used is called Bac-out and it is by Biokleen. It is 100% natural with live enzymes, and it worked great!! I had to do two applications, putting it in a watering can and "watering" the carpet, but I can't smell pee anyomre, jus the musty smell of the cleaner and carpet. I tried natures miracle and it did nothing. This stuff seems to be doing the trick with the pee, but now I am having trouble with the musty smell.

If you could rent a Dry Vac somewhere it would totally suck all of the water out. (I think you can rent from Home Depot/Lowe's) Then you can place a fan in the hallway for the final drying.

Try putting some fans at either end of the area until it is totally dry. It will still stink but at least it will dry faster.
