Can you remove urine from concrete?

Posted by Sarah Brown on

It is possible to remove urine from concrete surfaces however, the process may be more challenging than removing urine from carpets, as concrete is a porous surface that can absorb liquids and odours. 

To remove urine from concrete, you will need to use a cleaning solution that is specifically designed to break down the urine and remove the odour. 

To use an enzyme-based cleaner, follow these steps: 

  1. Locate the area where the urine is present and clean up any visible debris. 
  2. Saturate the area with the enzyme-based cleaner and allow it to penetrate the concrete for at least 15 minutes. 
  3. Scrub the area with a stiff-bristled brush to help lift and remove the urine and any odors. 
  4. Rinse the area with clean water and allow it to dry completely. 

If the urine stain is particularly stubborn, you may need to repeat the process a few times to completely remove the odour. It is also important to note that removing urine from concrete may not always be possible, particularly if the urine has penetrated deeply into the pores of the concrete. In these cases, it may be necessary to replace the affected area of the concrete.
