Blacklight To Find Cat Urine
Cat urine can be a difficult and unwieldy opponent especially if you are not properly outfitted for battle. You can smell it everywhere, but it can ultimately be difficult to actually pinpoint just exactly where the cat urine stain is. In other words, you need to find the stain in order to eliminate it, and here at Planet Urine we have a great tool to help you do just that.
One of the best ways to "spot" invasive cat urine stains is to utilize a black light. Black lights actually emit a long wave of UV radiation. While actually appearing more purple than black, black lights are commonly used to detect anything from forgeries, to improper food handling, and now urine smell and odor. The secret is in the urine itself.
When you shine a black light on a cat urine stain it will appear as a green or yellow spot. We have an easy to use handheld black light that is perfect for this use. It is small enough to carry around the house easily, and big enough to actually cover a fairly broad surface area. Black light urine detection works best in dimly lit areas, or areas where there is no other light source. For this reason we advise that you try black light urine "hunting" in the evening.
Once you have successfully found and marked the urine stains in your home, all you have to do is eliminate them. Some might be thinking that this is easier said than done. Fortunately, at Planet Urine we have some powerful cat urine removal products available to consumers. We offer the same high grade cat urine smell and stain removers that professional stain removal teams use. Call our toll free number at 888-286-ODOR (6367) for more information.
