Many of us enjoy sharing our homes with dogs, cats, and other pets and could not imagine life without them. However, as much as we love them and love spending time with them, there are some aspects of being a pet parent that are a bit less fun. Namely, cleaning up accidents in the house, removing their hair from sofas and rugs, cleaning up the occasional vomit, and trying to figure out how to get rid of urine smell.
Our furry family members are certainly worth every minute we spend cleaning up after them, but wouldn’t it be nice to have some incredibly effective products and tips to make that clean up a bit easier? The problem we have found with most products we have tried for removing odors caused by vomit, feces, or urine is that they either just are not that effective or that they only temporarily mask the smell, and the odor inevitably returns. That is just a waste of time and money and leaves you with unwanted odors you should not have to live with.
This is where Urine Zero comes in. Urine Zero was developed by microbiologists to provide a safe, non-toxic solution for completely removing pet urine odors, as well as odors from feces, vomit, diaper pails, trash cans, and more. It is a microbial cleaner, which means it contains millions of microbes that consume odor-causing compounds, such as the nitrogen that combines with hydrogen to make ammonia. Since ammonia is the cause of unwanted urine smells, introducing microbes that feed on nitrogen is an effective way to completely remove ammonia odors in affected areas.

How to Use Urine Zero on Artificial Turf
What you need:
- Spray bottle or a 1-gallon pump sprayer
- Urine Zero
What you do:
Step 1: Remove solid waste, such as feces or vomit, as much as possible. This may include using a bag or scooper to remove larger debris, and then spraying down the area with a garden hose to remove smaller debris or waste that might remain on the blades of grass after using the bag or scooper.
Step 2: You may already have a bottle of Urine Zero diluted with water on hand for this type of situation. If not, you will need to mix one part Urine Zero with nine parts water in a spray bottle. Urine Zero is a 10X concentrate, so it is worth measuring accurately to get the most value from your bottle of Urine Zero.
Step 3: Spray the product liberally on the affected area. When using this pet urine cleaner on artificial grass, you want to fully saturate the area and use enough product to allow it to go below the surface to reach the class II road base beneath the grass. This is particularly important if you are dealing with liquid waste, such as vomit, urine, or diarrhea that may have seeped below the surface.
Step 4: Leave the product on your artificial grass to allow the microbes to consume the odor-causing compounds.
If you are working on removing odors that have been on the grass for a while or are in an area frequently used by your pets as a restroom, you may need to repeat the above process a few times to thoroughly remove pet urine odors.
If you use artificial turf for dogs or cats, such as in a catio or dog run or just in your backyard where they spend time, you will likely be using Urine Zero regularly to stay on top of pet urine odors. Therefore, it is a good idea to keep your spray bottle filled and ready to go so that you can easily address odors in the future.
Remember, you can also use Urine Zero to remove pet odors on carpet, rugs, and upholstery both inside and outside of your home, as well as hardscapes, such as paving stone patios. It can even remove unwanted smells in trash cans and diaper pails, so you may want to keep one spray bottle handy for outdoor surfaces and another inside with your cleaning supplies for indoor odor control.
If you have tried pet urine odor removers before and have not had much luck, you might be a bit leery about ordering a new product you have never tried. That is completely understandable. We have tried many urine odor removers without success, which is precisely why Urine Zero was developed. Our in-house tests showed that the microbes in Urine Zero had a growth rate of more than three times that of competitors when ammonia (a food source for the microbes) was introduced. This means more microbes to consume the odor-causing compounds and to completely eliminate the odor.
Also, Urine Zero comes with a money-back guarantee. So, if you order Urine Zero from Install-It-Direct, follow the application instructions, and then believe that it did not effectively eliminate pet urine odors in your artificial grass, carpet, or paving stone patio, you can simply email us for a refund.
This means that you really have nothing to lose but much to gain since Urine Zero can allow you to once again enjoy spending time in your outdoor living areas without offensive urine odors.
