Removing Pet Urine Odour from Carpets Like a Pro: Our Ultimate Guide

Whether you have a Pug or a Pitbull, a German Shepherd or a Maltese, one thing is certain, we love our fur babies, and there’s nothing nothing we won’t do for them. However, when they are young, it’s quite common for them to have house-training accidents.

Perhaps one of the biggest problems is that once a dog has urinated in a certain spot, he will keep returning to it over and over again.

If you truly want to get dog pee out of your carpets for good and save yourself the time and backaches of scrubbing pet urine out of your carpets, call the experts at Crystal Carpet Cleaners.

We get many calls from people who say that no matter what they’ve tried or how long it’s been, that horrible smell of dog urine never seems to go away. Here’s why:

Urine Crystals Can Stay Moist for Up to 5 Years

Urine crystals stay “fresh” for as long as 5 years! Now imagine your dog peeing in the same place several times a day, Ugh. While the urine scent mark is important to your dog, it’s definitely something you don’t want in your home.

Perhaps your puppy has had only 1 or 2 accidents and you are hoping to remove that dog pee smell yourself.

We understand and we are here to help, that’s why we’ve come up with this guide. Here are some of our expert tips.

What Kills Pet Urine Odour in Carpets?

Pet Urine Odour & Stain Removal Perth

First, try soaking up as much of the pet urine as you can.

Don’t scrub. Instead, use paper towels or old rags and place them on top of the urine stain. Step on the towel or rag for a minute, turn it over, and repeat.

Keep doing this (changing the towel if necessary) until you believe you have removed as much of the dog urine as humanly possible.

Using an old spray bottle, mix one part white vinegar to one part water and saturate the area. The vinegar solution will not harm your carpet, so apply it liberally.

Let this vinegar solution soak for at least 15 minutes.

Using the same method as above, use paper towels or old towels to soak up as much of the vinegar solution as possible. Use a dry towel if one gets wet.

Sprinkle baking soda over the affected area. Let the baking soda sit overnight.

Once the area is dry, vacuum up the baking soda.

Will the Vinegar Solution Keep the Dog from Returning?

The answer here is maybe. Every dog is different. Some dogs find the smell of vinegar to be so strong that they avoid that area. Other dogs don’t seem to care.

Dog pee stains and dog urine smells are stubborn ones, to be sure, and if your dog returns to the same spot, you will need to try a different method.

Top Tips for Removing Dog Pee Smells

Pet odours are a really stinky problem.

If the vinegar and water solution above didn’t work for you, it’s time to try something else.

Use an Enzymatic Cleaner

Your local pet store should have enzymatic cleaners. These use active enzymes that destroy the proteins in pet urine.

While enzymatic cleaners can work, these cleaning solutions often contain perfumes that you may not want in your carpet.

Things to Remember When Using Enzymatic Cleaners

  • It’s best to try two or three different enzymatic cleaners. This is because while one may work on the pee stain, another works to neutralise odours.
  • Pick one of these cleaners and follow the instructions. Allow the carpet to dry completely, then use a second cleaner.
  • We recommend that you wait until the area is completely dry before trying another cleaner.


Everyone wants to get rid of that stubborn smell and carpet stain ASAP, but you won’t truly know if the product has worked until the carpet is dry.

How Do You Get Dog Urine Smell Out of a Carpet After It Has Dried?

If you’ve discovered that dreaded dog pee smell a bit too late and the carpet is dry, what can you do?

Dried dog urine is perhaps the most stubborn pee stain and smell to remove.

Cleaning materials for removing dog urine smell out of a carpet

Trick Number 1: Mix a few drops of dish soap in water and soak a rag in this solution. Wring out the rag so it is wet but not dripping wet. Rub the area well to try to loosen the urine crystals. Use a towel and blot dry as much as possible. Now try the vinegar solution above.

Trick Number 2: Wet the area with the vinegar and water solution above. Sprinkle the area liberally with baking soda. Allow to dry and vacuum the area.

Trick Number 3: To truly remove the smell of dog pee, cat urine, and urine stains, call the professionals at Crystal Carpet Cleaners.

Do Not Use Steam Cleaners!

Your first instinct might be to go rent a steam cleaner, but this would be a big mistake!

Steam cleaning will literally “bake” pet urine stains and dog pee smells right into your carpet fibres! While the cleaning chemicals and perfumed soaps might disguise the smell of dog pee, we guarantee that your dog will find that spot again in two shakes of a puppy dog’s tail!

Avoid Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is great for removing the smell of dog pee, but unless your carpet is white or light colored, it can also “bleach” your carpet!

If you want to try hydrogen peroxide, test it first in a small, hidden spot (such as under your sofa). Wait until it is completely dry to see the full results.
