Cat spraying is a common issue that many feline owners face. It can be frustrating to deal with, especially when it comes to keeping your carpets clean and odor-free. If you are dealing with cat spraying in your home, Kung Fu Carpets & Cleaning Co. is here to help. Here’s everything you need to know about cat spraying and how our carpet cleaning services can help.

What is Cat Spraying?

Cat spraying is a behavior in which a cat will mark its territory by spraying a small amount of urine on surfaces such as walls, furniture, and carpets. This behavior is different from regular urination, as it is typically done on vertical surfaces and is used as a way for cats to communicate with other cats.

Causes of Cat Spraying

There are several reasons why a cat may start spraying:

  • Behavioral
  • Changes in the Home Environment
  • Marking Territory
  • Medical-Related
  • Stress or Anxiety

If your cat is spraying, address the underlying cause of the behavior. This may involve making changes to your cat’s environment, such as providing more litter boxes or reducing stressors in the home. In some cases, medication or behavioral therapy may be needed to help stop the spraying behavior.

If your cat has sprayed on your carpets, clean the affected area thoroughly to remove the odor and prevent the behavior from continuing. To do this, we recommend our carpet cleaning services, which are designed to deep clean your carpets and remove tough odors, including those caused by cat spraying. But if you would like to treat the stain in the meantime, blot it with a wet rag. Then, generously apply a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. Allow the mixture to sit for 10-15 minutes and then blot. This will kill ammonia smell without attracting dirt like other pet stain chemicals. What’s more, the pet will avoid re-soiling the same area, as they dislike the smell of vinegar. 

We use advanced cleaning techniques and eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure that your carpets are clean, fresh, and free of odors. Our team of experienced technicians is trained to handle all types of carpet cleaning jobs, including those involving pet stains and odors.

In addition to carpet cleaning, we also offer upholstery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, and other cleaning services to help keep your home clean and fresh. Whether you are dealing with cat spraying or just in need of a deep clean, Kung Fu Carpets & Cleaning Co. has you covered.
