The best tile cleaner for dog pee is steam.  Here’s why!

There are many chemical options for cleaning dog pee.  A simple Web search will yield millions of results.  The problem with pet urine is not just the potential for discoloration.  If dog pee is wiped up quickly, it might not leave a stain.  What lingers behind, is the odor.  While up to 95% of healthy dog urine is water, other chemicals therein are the likes of ammonia, uric acid, and various proteins and minerals.  Most homeowners, who have experienced lingering dog pee smell in their homes, note the putrid smell of ammonia.  Enzymatic cleaning solutions are available for this issue.  The problem with these solutions is that they can take some time to remedy strong odor.  Even then, you will likely not be completely rid of the smell.  Warm, sunny spaces on your floor will heat up during the day, wafting the leftover eau de Fido parfum through your home.  These cleaners will require multiple applications, and could produce unsatisfactory results.
