Default Interior Smell - Cat Piss Edition

I just picked up a roller earlier today. The dude I bought it from had the full interior (which was stored separately in a barn.) I took the interior with the car. The problem is there were 30+ (not exaggerating) cats in this barn. So the interior reeks of cat piss (or stench, whatever it is.) The seats appear to be vinyl. Do you guys know of anything I can use to get the stink off these seats and interior panels?

Thanks!

Good luck! Cat piss is almost impossible to get out of fabrics or cushioning. If it is only on the vinyl/plastic you might be ok. I have thrown a bed away before because of one incident of male cat piss.

Unfortunately I agree. Cat piss pretty much won't come out. You could always try that urine gone stuff they sell for carpets. It is supposed to have enzymes that break down urine.

Take a black light to it as well. I think pee shows up under that. If there is no pee on it maybe you can just air it out and keep spraying some type of baking soda product on it?

after some quick research, I can confirm you are definitely fucked. The smell can only be reduced, not completely taken care of.

You could use it as a template for a new interior but I agree with everybody else, if the cat piss has touched the foam it's never coming out, I have tossed 2 couches due to cat piss

If its in the foam yea. There's an enzymatic cleaner called urine off that was made to clean prisons. I'd clean it with that then febreeze the shit out of them.

you will be constantly cleaning and messing with them. you will never get rid of it, you will only reduce the smell. i would personally ditch it, but then again some people might be able to tolerate the smell of piss with the are driving down the road every day, im just not one of those people.

Ill try that out then. I'm not sure if its in the foam or not. What about the plastic panels? Those should clean up fine right?

You can get the smell out of carpet all the panels, the seats are harder. A stupid cat snuck into my garage and got into a car and stunk it up. I took all the interior out and pretreated it with cleaner and fabrise. Then I powerwashed all the fabric. The foam got soaked in a bucket a few times. When it dried out it didn't smell anymore.

First thing you are going to need to do is clean everything really well.
Then you can try this
CarPro So2Pure Air Purifying Coating 120 ml.

You also may need to rent an Ozone generator.

If you want to go the cheap route you can try an odor bomb, but I am not sure how long it will work especially with that much cat piss over the years.

Only thing I can recommend would be soak the shit out of the interior with an Enzyme Cleaner. That should help break down some of the "stain". Cat piss and gas aren't just odors on fabrics, they are actually more of a stain. They never really fully come out.

The only thing that has a chance of actually eliminating it would be some kind of enzyme cleaner. Maybe Bob or Kevin or another one of the detailers can give their opinion on this. Enzyme treatment, shampoo, enzyme treatment again, shampoo then dry. Make sure to put some fans on it or stick it out in the warm sun. Mold smells just as bad at cat piss.
