Now that summer is here, i have discovered that one of my cats [maybe both?] have used the living room carpet as their litter box. I have never noticed an odor until recently, im sure due to the humidity.
The living room is under-ground level, so the humidity is much worse and the smell just lingers. Its horrible.
On Wed, i used nearly a gallon of Natures Miracle Just for Cats. I followed the instructions in which it said: for large areas, use a watering can and let it dry--depending on air circulation, it can take up to 2 weeks to dry and eliminate the odor.
I have heard nothing but good comments about this stuff. But im not so sure its working.
Im rather impatient and im not sure if i can wait nearly 2 weeks to see if there is a difference! I hate waking up and then coming home from work everyday to this nasty smell!!
I have a fan blowing on the area i 'watered'. But the thing is, when i first 'watered' it, all you could smell was the cleaner mixed with the urine odor. Once the smell of the cleaner went away, the urine smell now seems to be even more overpowering!
Is this normal? Does it get worse before it gets better?
The bottle also says that you may have to lift up the carpet and spray the pad. I dont think there is a pad under my carpet, just concrete.
Is there anything else i could try? It says not to use any other types of cleaner, as it can set the odor permanently. The only other product i have used is carpet deodorizer [and this was before it started to smell].
Coincidentally i just got an advertisement on my door for carpet cleaning in which they claim they take care of pet odors. Any suggestions?
I even bought a black light to pin point the area, but im not seeing anything!!
