Pat said, “How do you get urine stain off of flagstone. My dogs use it when the weather is bad.”
Flagstone is basically a flat cobblestone-style paving that is often used outside homes for patios, walls, or walkways. Although stone is usually thought to be solid, most stones, including flagstone, are actually porous, which allows fluids to seep more deeply into them. However, even old urine usually isn’t very difficult to remove. Follow the steps below to clean the urine off your flagstone.
Removing the Stain
You Will Need:
- Paper towels
- Pet enzyme cleaner
Steps to Remove the Stain:
- Soak up as much fresh urine as possible with paper towels.¹
- If the urine is older, clean it with a damp cloth to remove as much urine residue as possible.¹
- Rinse the area with water.
- Get a pet enzyme cleaner that is safe for hard surfaces, such as Nature’s Miracle Hard Floor Cleaner.¹
- Follow the instructions on the label of you selected cleaner.
- Repeat the cleaning with the enzyme cleaner as many times as needed to fully remove the urine. If the flagstone is outside, the enzyme cleaner might dry before it has time to finish working, so multiple applications of the cleaner may be necessary.¹
Additional Tips and Advice
- Flagstone usually responds well to power washing so if needed, give that a try.
- Flagstone does not usually need to be sealed, however if the urine is a repeated problem, sealing it may help to protect it.
