You thought you already took care of your dog’s little accident this winter, so why is the smell coming back in full force now that the weather is getting warmer?

If you smell an orange, you are smelling tiny orange particles floating in the air, unfortunately the same thing is true if you are smelling pet urine. In warmer weather, matter gives off more particles mostly due to evaporation, and those particles move faster through the air, causing more collisions and creating more particles. The more particles in the air, the stronger the odor.

Don’t fear, even old urine stains can be treated. Enzyme based cleaners work well on fresh urine stains, but do nothing if the stain is old or has already been cleaned. Use something as simple as undiluted white vinegar, which naturally dissolves odors. Baking soda also absorbs odors, and can be shaken over any surface. Allow baking soda to sit overnight before sweeping or vacuuming the powder away.

If you have tried everything and can’t get the the smell to go away, call the professionals. Urine can go under the carpet and stain the padding underneath. Sometimes it just takes a good deep cleaning to get the odor out.
