Get rid of the urine smell in your backyard or enclosed areas
Synthetic grass or concrete areas that have been urinated on repeatedly by your pets (usually dogs) or other animals are likely to smell quite strongly, especially on hot or humid days where the uric acid crystals (the source of the urine smell) are activated and release the odor.
Artificial grass is usually built on a crushed rock or sand base with small holes in the material to allow for drainage. Urine tends to seep through the grass, into the rock and sand. When urine dries, it crystalizes. It is these uric acid crystals that are difficult to remove. The same is the case with concrete, block and paving stone patios and walkways.
Conventional cleaners and water will not break down the non-soluble uric acid crystals and they will remain. Only a bio-enzymatic formulation like the one found in urineFREE will remove uric acid crystals for good. urineFREE’s bio-enzymatic action is designed to “eat” these crystals along with the water-soluble components of urine.
urineFREE or yardFRESH/ Envirowash?
We recommend using a combination of urineFREE as the main treatment to remove urine odours; and yardFRESH/ Envirowash as a more affordable “touch up” to maintain results for longer (and more cost-effective).
urineFREE is an all-in-one urine stain & smell remover that removes all urine — cat urine, dog urine, other animal & human urine.
yardFRESH / Envirowash is not a urine remover, it is a high-performance odor eliminator.
How much product to use?
The amount of product you are going to need depends on the amount of urine that has been deposited and the porosity of your synthetic lawn or other outdoor area.
A dog (depending on size) can urinate anywhere between 200-2000ml each day — therefore we cannot recommend an exact quantity as every case is different.
If your pet is going to consistently revisit this area, complete removal can be costly but regular maintenance will help reduce the long- term odors.
