Removing cat urine odor from rental property can save you time, money, and aggravation.
It can save you time either before you move in or after you move out. Your landlord may hold you responsible for cleaning any damage caused by cat urine odor when you’re ready to vacate the apartment or condo. You can save money by being sure there’s no left over pet odor from the previous tenants by either arranging to have the apartment cleaned (hopefully at the landlord’s expense), or using your cat urine detector blacklight to find and clean any cat urine odor spots yourself.
You can stop the aggravation from either your landlord or your cat by removing cat urine odor as quickly as it happens.
Know the conditions for renting the apartment or condo before you sign the lease.
- Will you have to pay a pet deposit in addition to the first months’ rent?
- What are the penalties for not removing cat urine odor damage?
- If the previous tenant had cats or dogs, was the apartment completely cleaned with a good enzyme cleaner to eradicate the prior pet’s odors?
- When you move out, what is your responsibility to ensure there are no cat urine odors lingering?
- These are important questions and answers to know before you sign the lease and hire the moving van.
By understanding the lease conditions, and knowing the condition of the apartment or condo prior to your moving in, you can halt cat urine odor issues before they get started.
If the landlord tells you the prior tenants had pets, but they did not cause pet odor problems, you may want to clean the residence with an enzyme cleaner before you move in.
This will ensure there are no lingering cat or dog odors that may cause your cat anxiety, and get her developing cat litter box issues.
Before you move in, purchase and install Feliway Plug in modules to help ease your cat’s transition to the new apartment or condo.
This will decrease or eliminate the likelihood of kitty urinating outside the cat litter box due to fear and anxiety about the new home.
Set up the cat litter boxes as soon as possible, and show them to kitty, so she knows the location in her new apartment.
All of these tips will assist you in permanently removing cat urine odor from the apartment or condo.
If you’re looking for a more permanent way to get your cat to stop spraying — which I recommend most of my blog readers to do — give Cat Spray Stop a try.
