Tools and Chemicals needed to remove cat urine
This one is almost OT but I need the experiences of cat owners on this one.
I have a 2' x 3' area of carpet in which I cannot get out the cat uric acid crystals. I have a powerful vacuum extracter and have completely got all of the stains out of the rug but the smell remains. I have used one gallon of enzymes so far and reduced the smell by 80%. I have followed instructions by the manufacturer.
I have ordered a different product which uses an oxidation method to "break down" the crystals and turn them into something else. This is a last effort before I replace the carpet. The carpet is not a cheapy at $40/sq yd and is tough to match color but it is a stair runner carpet and the problem is at the top of the stair landing. I am getting the house ready for sale and I suspect any smell may queer the sale.
Any idea if the oxidation product may work or may damage the rug? Is this another scam? There are always great testimonials at these product sites but they are obviously self serving. Any better extraction tools available than a commercial vacuum?
