Pet Scent Spray Removal
Cats, both male and female, neutered or whole, are capable of scent
marking their territory. Neutering does not remove the scent gland,
it may in some cases reduce the desire to scent mark . De-clawed
cats are generally more likely to scent mark than fully armed
cats. Dogs scent mark as well, but mostly they do it outside on every tree,
fire plug and lamp post. So as far a interior rehabbing is concerned scent
spraying is limited to cats and smaller exotic pets like ferrets.
Eliminating scent spray odors is relative easy provided that you have
not painted over the area and you can find all of the involved areas. The
black light approach works about 70% of the time based on the type
and amount of phosphor in the animals diet. The black light will
cause these phosphor salts to light up as a pale yellowish green mark that
looks like it was applied with a squirt gun. Anywhere you find one of
these marks, stick a thumb tack 2 inches above the mark so you can find
them after you wash and rinse the area with TSP.
Mix up a 16 ounce trigger spray bottle of OdorXit Concentrate with 1
ounce of Concentrate and 15 ounces of water. Spray the marked areas with 2
to 4 pumps of product and let it dry naturally. These scent marks often
take 2 to 5 applications over as many days to remove all the odor.
Places to find scent spray include: walls, doors, door frames, window
frames, outside door thresholds, entrance ways, above and behind kitchen
cabinets, behind baseboards and door trim. The unpainted bottom of wood
doors are a very popular place for scent spray to hide. Most can
be successfully treated with the
1:15 mixture, but often it is actually
more cost effective to replace trim and often doors.
