How to remove urine odours from timber beneath old carpet or other flooring?

Our tips

Our urine detector can help you find the urine stain that is the source of the urine odour, which can be hard to trace, especially if it’s an old stain or if it’s buried deep down.  

The urineFREE Urine Detector includes a light which is designed to detect the protein in urine. Dried urine stains will fluoresce in a darkened room, making it easy to find the area of the carpet with the urine stain and remove the urine odour.

  1. After removal of carpet or other flooring, remove any debris and spray affected areas with urineFREE.

  2. Use the urineFREE Urine Detector to find urine affected areas. Odour removal is the main aim here as new flooring will cover residual staining.
  3. Treat affected areas and allow to dry completely.
  4. Repeat treatment until urine odour is gone.
  5. Allow to dry thoroughly before re-flooring.

Remove any other product previously applied before using urineFREE

If you have used another chemical or detergent based product to try to remove the urine before using urineFREE, these chemicals and detergents may have removed the water soluble urea and urochrome components of urine but will likely have no impact on the non-soluble uric acid crystals which embed themselves into the carpet fibres and are difficult to dislodge.

These chemicals and detergents also coat or encapsulate the uric acid crystals making it difficult for urineFREE to penetrate. We therefore recommended that all other chemical and detergent based products are removed to maximise the effectiveness and results with urineFREE.i

Why is the stain becoming larger, darker and the odour stronger?

Often stains may become larger, darker and the odour stronger when they rise to the surface – this is common. This is the urine in the sublayers rising to the surface for further treatment and removal. These stains can take two to three treatments with urineFREE and you will see the stains become lighter and smaller upon further treatments until they eventually disappear. The sniff test for urine odour is the best way to double check the urine has gone as even if you can’t see it there may still be urine lingering. This is when you know you have got all the urine.
