Urine Smell in My Bathroom

I cannot get the urine smell out of my bathroom. I clean it every day. It is a brand new unit and only I live in it. I have not had this problem before. I do notice that there is a low water level in the toilet bowl. I hope you can help.

You may have urine soaked flooring from an old wax ring just under the base of the toilet. If you rent, ask you landlord for the date this was last replaced, which should be about every two years. If it is the case, it is their responsibility to replace it.
Good luck, Sandi

As you read though the responses you will see where people have tried everything to get rid of the urine stench in their bathrooms, removed toilet seals, flooring, sub flooring and tile to rid their bathrooms of urine soaked materials around their toilets. The answer is simple...toilets were not meant to be used standing up, why havent people figured this out?! Urinals are made for standing toilets are made for sitting. Bottom line, start sitting and stop ruining your bathrooms

My sister just moved into a brand new house and had the same problem; she was cleaning the commode and around the commode all the time. The odour seemed to be coming from the 'plastic' the commode seat/lid unit was made of.

After a few months, the smell has now almost totally gone. I hope this is the case for you, as well, and the 'new' smell eventually fades. Blessings.

We were having the same problem. This was after I had replaced our vinyl flooring with tile, so I knew it wasn't the floor or subfloor.

The odor was isolated to within the toilet bowl. After a lot of nostril work, I traced the odor as coming from under the lip around the top of the bowl (where the water washes down when you flush).

It seems that over time, urine has splattered and crystalized into the calcium deposits under the lip. I purchased a flexible plastic putty knife for under a buck and some pet urine odor neutralizer.

I soaked the underside of the lip with the neutralizer and scraped the deposits free with the putty knife. I also used a scotch scrub pad and scoured under the lip with the pad and some lysol bathroom cleaner (I used the putty knife to wedge the scouring pad under the lip).

I scraped, scrubbed and soaked with the cleaner and neutralizer until all the deposits were gone. The smell instantly disappeared and remains gone today.

When you clean use backing soda. It will take the smell out of the bathroom.

I clean houses for elderly people and notice that urine gets on the outside of the bowl all around the sides , front and back. Really check the entire toilet. If you don't find anything, there may be urine that seeped into the flooring. As said by others, talk to your landlord.

I know it's frustrating. Sorry!

You can try half a cup of white vinegar to every gallon of water and saturate your floor for couple of seconds then mop away. Miracle Natures Pet odor products work. Do not use air freshner it makes the smell worse. Use vinegar and when dry use Miracle Natures Pet Odor product, you can order on line or ask at your pet store or warehouse.
