If after you find a good clean solution but still have an odor problem... try my favorite household odor remover:
Anti Icky Poo
The names says it all LOL
It's a fabulous enzyme spray that works specifically for urine removal but can be used for any bio odor (smoke, puke, rotten veggies).
I have tried many enzyme cleaners and this is by FAR the best!
See their Stinky Articles for info on pet odor removal. Amazon.com has good prices if you cannot find it locally.
when i used the nature's miracle, it still took forever to get all the pee out. Also several rolls of paper towels. I think the stain spread out more too. That was super fun. Not.
I would think that a carpet cleaner (wet vac) would be awesome to try in between cleanings to get out as much as possible. I honestly don't think there is just one perfect solution (although i don't recommend any lemon scented pet stain removers- i used one and it made the room smell like lemon candy and cat pee).
Is the area being soiled again and again or is this a one time mess?
If the various cleaners and enzyme solutions are not working, I'd suggest you pull back the carpet and pray for plywood subfloor and not beautiful hardwood floors! If the smell has soaked into the subfloor, there is a product called BIN, made by Zinsser. It's a white pigmented shellac paint. It's a primer (undercoat for paint) and is a vapor barrier. Clean and prep the floor properly and paint it. It will seal in the odor and prevent it from returning.
Now, if the cat is continuing to pee, you've got a much bigger picture!
