Urine Finder Tips & Advice


The Urine Finder takes the guess work out of cleaning and should be used prior to applying Urine Off.


1. Darken the room as much as possible – the darker the room, the easier it will be to detect the dried urine. Simply use the light on the suspected areas affected by urine.


2. Prolonged and direct exposure to UV light can be harmful to the eyes. This is generally a concern only for professionals who regularly use the Institutional Urine Finder. The output in the Mini LED Urine Finder is not so bright as to cause harm; however, caution must be exercised by never looking directly into the light.


3. For extra protection, most prescription glasses and safety glasses generally have a UV coating and can be worn during use.


4. Dried urine has a characteristic dull yellow fluorescence or glow helping you to distinguish it from other compounds that may also glow.


5. One way to learn the characteristic colour of dried urine is to take your Urine Finder into the bathroom and illuminate the toilet and surrounding area. Even in the cleanest bathroom, you should be able to see the dried urine crystals that conventional cleaners cannot remove.


6. Another way to distinguish dried urine from other compounds is by the shape and location of the stain. Urine stains are generally found in predictable locations, like corners and at the base of furniture, and will have a shape that resembles a puddle or a stream. If pets are involved, be sure to check the baseboards and walls for traces of urine


7. Some soaps and detergents will leave residue that glows bright white to an almost blue-white. Lint can also glow bright white.


8. If urine has already been cleaned up or has seeped down into the carpet, then most of the urine has been cleaned off the top layer of fibres and will be difficult to locate with the Urine Finder. In such cases, it may be wise to pull back the carpet in the areas you suspect so you can ensure all of the urine is removed.
