How to neutralize cat urine – Branded products
If you find that the home remedies are not working then you may want to try some commercial cleaners. Neutralize odors with an enzymatic cleaner. Store bought enzymatic cleaners are not chemicals or odor masking products like carpet fresheners and fabric sprays. These microbe solutions are non-toxic and biodegradable, which makes them safe for your home, your family and your pets. The biological enzymes attack the bacteria in the urine and break down the proteins to neutralize the overpowering ammonia smell. Using other chemicals on the stain before trying an enzymatic cleaner can interfere with the ability of natural cultures to do their job.

Many pet owners have had success with all the above products. These are strong formulas created specifically to get rid of the cat urine smell. When you are ready to apply the enzymatic cleaner, for best results, you must carefully follow the directions on the bottle. In general or if you are using a homemade cleaner, you will need to thoroughly saturate the area, so that it wicks down into deeper padding. You also want to cover a large area than the visible stain in case the urine spreads further out as it seeped down beneath the surface. Allow the cleaner to air dry. This may take a few days if you are cleaning a mattress or a couch cushion.
If you still have trouble, then it is recommended that you invest in a multi-purpose deep cleaning machine to suck out all the urine from your carpet. A carpet cleaner or a wet vacuum is handy for removing urine particles as well as sucking up excess cleaners and deodorizers that you have applied on the soiled area. The machine drenches the spot with clean cool water and then sucks up the loosened dirt. You should not use steam cleaners or very hot water as the heat will permanently set the stain.
