Removing Urine from Concrete
These steps are to be used on unsealed concrete flooring. If the concrete is sealed, the urine should not penetrate into the concrete. At the end of this procedure a seal will be put on the concrete to create a vapor barrier that odor will not penetrate. When doing concrete urine deodorization, stay away from water-based sealers because they allow odor vapors to be released into the air.
- Using a pump-up sprayer, spray Matrix Urine Preconditioner diluted at 3 cups to 1 gallon of warm water onto the flooring. Use a floor brush to work Urine Preconditioner onto flooring. This step reduces the odor.
- Apply Betco Stix undiluted to the concrete to prepare it for sealing. Using a floor brush, scrub Stix into the surface and allow 20-30 minutes of dwell time.
- Using a mop and bucket with clean water, rinse the floor and let it dry completely.
- Use epoxy paint, xylene seal, or polyurethane, seal to encapsulate the problem areas. These products create a vapor barrier that odor will not penetrate. One to four ounces of Unsmoke Space Spray should be added to the seal. Stay away from water-based seals because they allow odor vapors to be released into the air.
