Question:

Removing the smell from an upholstered computer chair?

This morning, my little brother had an accident on my computer chair: I had to go to work soon so I couldn't do anything then. However, now that I'm back, I tried scrubbing it a bit with a damp cloth, then dried it - still smells. How can I get this smell off of my computer chair?

Answer:

Spray evenly with Pet Spotter made by Zep, which you can purchase at Home Depot. let dry, preferably outside if possible.. Repeat so long as smell remains, and vacuum chair at end. It will work, but it may take a few times depending on how deep, the urine soaked into the chair. Another thing you could do if it is really bad, is wet the chair up pretty good with the pet spotter, but evenly, and then extract with shop vac if you have.. Look at vacuum attachemnt or hose end as you do this to see that liquid is still coming up, and just keep going til no more is, and then if it still smells( now that it is wet, if it will smell, it s gonna smell), keep repeating.. No matter how bad it is, this second way that I told you about should have it taken care of in the most an hour's time.

It's not ON the chair, it's in the padding. Other than a HUGE dose of Nature's Miracle or Simple Solution, I don't think you can.

The best thing is an enzyme spray to get out organic odors and bacteria. I use Outright for pets. It works great.

Maybe try a bottle of those carpet cleaner spray cleaners I think that will work well!
