How to Get Dog Urine Odor Out of Concrete

Normally my dogs are good about going in the yard, but we’ve been watching the in-law’s dog for a few weeks and he’s a little less courteous. To make matters worse, he is on a special diet and daily medication for a prostate issue that has urine smelling like a bottle of ammonia mixed with asparagus and pickle juice – unpleasant. He also has taken to marking the concrete walk way to our front door. So finding the best pet product to remove the pet stains is a must.

The Best Way to Remove Old Urine Stains and Odor

Long story short, it is time to go over how to remove urine stain and odor from the concrete. A good surfactant/detergent based cleaner is ideal for this type of application, because it gets down into the porous concrete and separates the urine from the surface so that it can be washed away. Enzyme formulas have not worked for me in the past; it is very difficult to keep the area damp and at a consistent temperature.

Step 1: Saturate old stain with a stain and odor eliminator product and a six-inch perimeter with product.

Step 2: Let it soak into the surface like Urine would. I usually wait a couple minutes, or as long as it takes to get a cup of coffee/beer/vino.

Step 3: Hit it with the hose. Spray until the water running off the surface is clean and clear.

Step 4: Allow to air dry.

I’ve found this method very effective. For older stains or deep set in urine – increase the amount of time you allow the product to soak the area and use a stiff bristle brush to scrub the surface and agitate the detergent to activate it.
