Using Unleashed to Remove Urine Odors from Concrete
We are often asked about how to remove urine odors from concrete slabs using ODORxUn-Duz-It Unleashed. Here is the best approach to tackling this unique odor removal challenge.

Remember the first principle of any odor removal process: find and eliminate the source.

First clean the affected area to remove as much surface contamination as possible. Depending on the severity of odors and amount of urine to be removed, this could involve scrubbing and mopping or even a rinse extraction using a portable or truckmount extractor. Once you have removed as much of the source as possible, you can move on to the odor and stain removal stage.

Now prepare a solution of Un-Duz-It Unleashed with one part of Unleashed to one part of water. Apply the solution with a watering can or sprayer to assure a flood coat on the substrate. Cover the treatment area with 6 mil black plastic to retard the evaporation process and allow the Unleashed to begin to recreate the degree of penetration that the urine has been allowed to do over time. For the best results, allow the area to stay wet for 24 hours and then evaluate the level of odor control. If the odor has been removed, proceed with the cleaning process.  

After the dwell period is completed and the odor has been removed, rinse and extract the urine, dirt and water from the concrete with a spinning tile and grout cleaning tool attached to a suitable extractor or truckmount. Operate the tool at 900–1000 psi to ensure maximum removal.

If urine odor still persists, repeat the treatment. As described above, apply diluted Unleashed, cover it with plastic, and leave it until the next day. Again, to ensure soils and odors are completely removed, rinse extract the floor with the spinner operated at 900–1000 psi.

In most cases, the second treatment will remove even the most stubborn odors. However, if odors still persist, apply three coats of Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based White Interior Primer and Seal on the concrete surface. This product seals the odor from your floor. If flooring will be installed top of the concrete, the Zinsser product should be applied to the concrete first.
