NO — it’s a molecule thing… I just hung up with a gentleman that runs a property management company here in Oakland County, Michigan. He had a property with cat urine issues and was wondering if I could provide an ozone solution to his cat urine odor problem. The short and long answer is NO. Cat urine is viscous, it’s oily. Though an ozone treatment might solve the problem for 30 minutes, the oily nature would have the little stinky odor molecules rolling around to expose a new surface area the ozone couldn’t “see” while treating it. So, while Ozone is a great solution to many odor problems, cat urine is not one. Don’t let any Ozone Machine Rental Company tell you differently.
The trick to solving the cat urine issue is in either removing the “source” material (think carpet, moldings, drywall etc.) or sealing it also known as “encapsulating” the urine. A couple products that seemed to have great reviews was KOE – Kennel Odor Eliminator (though this is just a stripper, cleaner of the pet & urine odors.) And one that looked pretty interesting and safe for pets and encapsulates the odor is called – Nature’s Secret Weapon.
Good luck in solving your cat urine odor problems and remember if you need to rent an ozone machine in Southeast Michigan I’d be happy to help.
