We recommend having the following three items on hand to treat urine on mattresses or upholstery:
1. Adequate amount of SCOE 10X (estimate 1-gallon SCOE 10X RTU for every 100 SF floor).
2. A good blacklight to help locate the urine residue (urine glows yellow under blacklight).
3. A carpet/upholstery injector to inject SCOE 10X into the mattress or upholstery (cuts down on SCOE 10X use).
All three of the items listed above are sold here on our website.
SCOE 10X must make contact with all urine residue to permanently destroy it. Wherever the urine traveled is where SCOE 10X must travel. This means, for example, that if there is some urine residue in the mattress, then SCOE 10X must be applied to the mattress.
On urine residue which has dried, SCOE 10X may need more than 20 minutes to fully destroy the urine residue. When urine dries, a hard shell forms around the urea crystal, hence the need for more time to break the crystal down.
As long as SCOE 10X is wet, it will continue to destroy the urine residue.
Saturate the area where the urine was deposited with SCOE 10X. This is easily accomplished by pouring SCOE 10X from the spray bottle. Wait at least 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water while extracting using a wet vac or a carpet cleaning machine.
Do not use SCOE 10X in a carpet cleaning machine. SCOE 10X needs to be used as a pre-treatment due to the saturation levels and time needed to fully eliminate the urine residue.
If, after 20 minutes, urine odor is still present, not enough SCOE 10X has been applied to make contact with all of the urine residue deposited.
Rule of thumb for SCOE 10X application rate: for every part of urine deposited over time, an equal part SCOE 10X will need to be applied to that location.
