This is another great way to get rid of the mouse urine smell in your house. Sometimes we might clean the house, but you still have a strong odor coming from it. This might be because the house needs to be aired out properly, bleach and other chemicals will definitely help with the smell, but whatever the urine was on needed fresh air to circulate over it, especially if it was wood.

If the rats were in your closet and you cleaned it out you would still need to place a standing fan to blow air into it. If you don’t have a standing fan, just open a few windows in the room, and the scent should be gone after a few hours or minutes.
