Your cat urinated on your brand-new couch? You brought home a new puppy, and it urinated on the living room couch? To effectively eliminate the smell of urine, even if it has been present for several months, we recommend using our Uri-Clean product. This product is an odor neutralizer specifically designed to neutralize the smell of urine, regardless of the type of surface to be treated.

Before initiating an odor neutralizing treatment within a thick material such as a couch or chair, it’s important to choose the right product and to use the correct method of application. Since urine obeys the laws of gravity, the liquid typically seeps deep into the cushion, therefore, the product must be injected inside the material using a syringe with needle. Be careful not to choose a water-based product (such as enzymatic products) which can cause mold inside the couch once injected. Uri-Clean prevents this type of problem, since the product is an alcohol-based neutralizer that contains no water.


Neutralize the smell of urine on a fabric-covered couch

Start by marking a circle (using a piece of string) to target the affected area, taking care to widen the circle by 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12 cm). This will give you greater span, as the urine may have spread outside the area marked by your pet’s urine.

Subsequently, it is essential to treat the affected area by starting outside the circle and moving inward, keeping an interval of one inch (2.5 cm) between each injection, until you reach the center of the affected area. This step allows to treat the entire affected area. Insert approximately 5 to 10 cc of Uri-Clean with each injection inside the couch. Finally, spray Uri-Clean at a distance of about 4 in. (10 cm) over the entire affected area, and air the room.


Neutralize the smell of urine on a leather couch

Before treating your couch or chair, it is important to test the product on a small area of the couch, that is hidden from view. This will allow you to check if you are working on real or imitation leather. It is best not to use Uri-Clean on a couch covered with imitation leather, as the product could cause color fading.

Once this test is completed, spray Uri-Clean on a clean cloth, gently rub the area affected by the smell of urine, and let it dry. Wipe the excess product from the surface of the couch using a clean cloth.

If the smell is impregnated deep inside the couch cushions, you can inject Uri-Clean using a syringe with needle inserted through the seams of the couch. This will avoid causing any damage to the fabric.
