If you have cat urine smell in your carpet, you need to rid it of the proteins of the urine or you will NEVER get rid of that smell. Every rainly day, you'll still smell that urine even if you rent or purchase a very expensive carpet cleaner. In fact, we did some research and found that a steamer can make things worse by setting the smell in. We used a spot bot for daily cleaning but the room the cats were messing in started to smell bad. We purchased this light to shine on the carpet, find the urine spots and then used a power/pump sprayer with an ENZYME based pet cleaner to apply. We just sprayed on and let it dry for a week or however long it takes. The light allowed us to see the stains/spots very, very well. I don't understand the one post that stated they could hardly see the stain because we saw them very clearly. Our carpet had some thread in it that gave us a sprinkling of light (consistent) throughout but it was VERY easy to see spots that you couldn't see at all in regular light. So far so good. After we used the light and enzyme, we rented a carpet cleaner, added ONLY water and a little vinegar (about a cup) and thoroughly rinced the carpet. It cost only $22 to rent (no soap or extras needed). Last, we followed our research tips and dowsed the area with sented baking soda It really worked. We finally got the smell out. If there are any negatives with this light, I'll edit my post here. Good luck!

My sheltie had 3 accidents within a 2 week period this last spring... we don't know why, but she hasn't done it since, so we think she might not have been feeling well. In any case, I had some carpet to clean with an enzymatic cleaner, and while I knew the general area, I couldn't remember exactly where Zoey had gone pee.

You have to use this detector in a pitch dark room.... I think most UV lights have this limitation, even for the professionals. At our old house, we had a pro carpet cleaner come in and treat pet stains, and they could only do this at night with their UV detector, so the cleaners were over late at night to detect and treat.

When I used the Simple Solution Spotter, the urine showed up as very pale, dull yellow spots on my dark thick brown carpet. Zoey has a habit of starting to walk away before she's fully finished peeing, so there were little trailing drips I had to track down - this was the hardest part of treating the stains. Other than having to be on my hands and knees, staring hard at the carpet, it was easy enough to start at one area, and work my way backwards until I'd found all 3 spots she'd made.

I'm glad I bought the Simple Solution UV Urine Detector even though I've only had occasion to use it once, and amazon had a lower price than my local pet supply store.

Not that this has to do with the detector itself, but I found it helpful to use a manual pressure sprayer while treating the stains. I found mine in the garden supply area of a hardware store. Mine's larger than regular trigger spray bottles, and you can tilt it forward and downward to spray the carpet - something that's hard to do with a trigger spray bottle, as liquid would move away from the straw part of the trigger bottle, and nothing would come out.

I was a little skeptical at first. But, we have a new puppy and he has found an area he loves to "visit". The more I cleaned the more I could smell. This light has helped me find the areas for cleaning. Thanks to this light I no longer have lingering urine smells.

I'd purchased another, cheaper blacklight "stain detector" from American Science and Surplus and it was completely useless. I guess you get what you pay for. I took a chance on this one - it's not all that expensive, either - and I'm so relieved (and disgusted) that it works very well!

NOTE: It is quite jarring to discover the glowing evidence of formerly invisible spills, splashes, and deliberate markings.

My son was so alarmed at all the drips and spots that fluoresced that he ran to put his slippers on! Clearly, many of the spots were from non-cat substances (bleach and detergent dribbles along the side of the washer, an old coffee spill on the office chair), but I feel confident that I can attack and eliminate all the offensive spots now that I've found them. Buy one for your pet-loving friends, too.

This is great for pinpointing those hard-to-find smelly spots that your pet has left behind. Only thing is you have to use it in a really dark room, otherwise the spots wont show up well.

Another thing you'll want to know is that it's a battery hog (it uses 8 batteries!!). However, if you have a 12V DC adapter you can use that instead.

I received this product today, and it worked great. First, the room must be dark. If you have light carpet, it is tricky at first to see anything. It worked best for me to angle the light slightly instead of aiming it straight towards the floor. On dark carpet, urine and other things were very easy to spot. The light takes 8 AA batteries (not included)or an adaptor plug, but it was brighter with the batteries.

This little blacklight does its job pretty well. You have to hold it at most 2 feet away from the floor, to be effective so you have to either bend over or crawl around. It highlights things pretty well on every surface we tried (carpet, counter top, laminate hardwood, porcelain). Whatever you do, do not take this thing into the bathroom. Unless you clean every nook and cranny daily, you will be disturbed by what you see!
