Maybe you love your pets and natural stone flooring, but they both don’t go together. Pet urine accidents on natural stone can result in permanent staining and odour issues. Baasar Stones, a leading natural stone supplier in Melbourne, takes pride in sharing with you some instructions on how to remove pet urine stain and odour from your natural stone.
Time Is Of Great Essence:
It can be quite difficult to remove a urine stain from the natural stone floor, but the key is that the sooner to clean the urine, the better your chances are to avoid staining the flooring. As soon as you seen the urine, blot it up with a piece of soft cloth or a paper towel. Avoid wiping the surface as the urine will spread to the surrounding areas.
DIY Cleaning Solution:
One of the easiest and the most effective ways to clean the pet urine stain on natural stone flooring is to mix one teaspoon of mild dish soap with one gallon of warm water. Sprinkle this solution on the stained area and leave it for a few minutes. Then, you can blot the area and rinse with clean water.
If you can’t eliminate the stain from your natural stone floor despite all your efforts, then it would be a great idea to apply a poultice. It is nothing but a mixture that can be sprinkled over the stain to break it down. The most important thing that you should keep in mind is that you must only use a poultice made for the specific type of natural stone.
Deodorise The Area:
Once you have cleaned the urine stain, you must deodorise the area so that your pet will not urinate there again. If your pet smells its scent on the area, it will use this spot again to urinate. If anything doesn’t work out, it is better to hire the professional natural stone cleaner.
