How to Get Rid of Outdoor Pet Odors and Stains

January 19, 2022

Odors and stains from pets and wild animals can make spending time in your outdoor oasis a lot less pleasant. Thankfully, tackling outdoor odors can be easy. Here’s how!

Where do outdoor odors and stains come from?

For pet parents, backyard odors are a normal issue, especially during warmer and drier seasons. But, additional unpleasant odors and mysterious stains can have several potential causes. Has a stray cat been marking your back door? Have the birds enjoying the feeder outside your window left an unsightly stain on the front porch? Did a raccoon turn trash day into an all-you-can-eat buffet on your driveway? 

Once you’ve determined the source of smells and stains, eliminating them for good is easy—and important. Besides being unpleasant, organic materials like urine, feces, vomit, and food remnants can attract pests or wildlife and encourage even more unwanted marking. 

How do I get rid of pet urine odors outside?

Unless you’re one of the lucky few pet parents to have toilet-trained your four-legged family, they’re likely having their potty breaks outdoors (but, if they’re still in training or have the occasional accident, you’ll find these tips for removing pet stains and odors inside the home helpful!). Urine and waste, if left unchecked, can cause distinctive odors and unsightly stains on grass, artificial turf, porches, driveways, decks, gravel, dirt, and anywhere else your pet (or a stray or wild animal) may do their business.

To get rid of urine smells outside, you’ll need to eliminate the source of the odor, not just mask the smell. And, because the products you use will directly impact your environment, it’s important to use only those specifically designed to be used outside.

Unique Pet Care’s Professional Strength Turf & Outdoor Odor and Stain Remover was consciously created especially for outdoor use, with your home, your family, and your pets in mind. It can be effectively used on all outdoor surfaces not prone to water damage. This includes real and synthetic turf, concrete, wood, gravel, rock, and more. It’s perfect for deodorizing pets’ potty areas, kennels, enclosures, and dog runs. It even works on bunny hutches and chicken coops! 

To use, just pick up and responsibly dispose of any solid waste, then saturate problem areas using a standard garden hose or your favorite garden sprayer. And, unlike other outdoor odor remover products, you don’t have to wait for Unique’s Turf & Outdoor to dry before letting pets or kids outside to play.

Plus, it’s effective against wild animal odors and stains, too. Unique Turf & Outdoor is tough on messes, but gentle on the outdoors. And, it removes the pheromones that can encourage unwanted marking, making it ideal for animal shelters, pet daycares, groomers, boarders, and training facilities, too.

How does Unique Turf & Outdoor work so well?

Turf & Outdoor Odor and Stain Remover contains a highly-effective blend of probiotics (a.k.a. “good bacteria”) and enzymes that go to work instantly, breaking down even the most stubborn stains and odors. The way it works is simple. Bacteria need a food source to survive, and the stains and odors pets create are the perfect food source. Once the healthy probiotics in Turf & Outdoor encounter the odors and stains, they become active and begin to eat. As these good bacteria eat, they produce enzymes. The enzymes help to break down the stain and odor molecules into more easily digestible food for the bacteria. 

This amazing, and completely natural, bacterial-enzyme breakdown leaves nothing behind but water and carbon dioxide. That’s the power of science at work!
