When you turn the lights off and activate the black light, it will show you where the cat pee stains are.

    • Once you have determined where needs cleaning, buy an enzymatic pet odour removal product. These may be expensive, but they do the job better that regular cleaning products that merely cover up the smell, rather than get cat urine off your things.

Be sure to be thorough. Where necessary, lift up carpet corners and use the cleaner underneath to get rid of cat urine hidden away. A second application may be necessary in severely smelly cases.

    • There may be reasons why your cat is urinating so much everywhere. If you are concerned, visit the vet to find out more. This could get you to the route of the problem and prevent any need for getting cat urine off your belongings and eradicating the cat urine smell.
