Part of pet ownership is dealing with urine stains on carpets, furniture, in vehicles and other surfaces, such as marble. Though urine can have a very damaging effect on marble should it be allowed to set for a period of time, it is fairly simple to remove fresh stains. As with any stain, the quicker you act the better your chances of complete stain removal. It may also be necessary to block entryway to marble tile areas, such as in front of a fireplace, to prevent your cat or dog from continuing to use the area.

Step 1

Spray a liquid peroxide cleaner on the affected areas. Allow it to sit for five to 15 minutes depending on the severity of the stain.

Step 2

Blot the marble with a soft, clean cloth. Do not rub the stain because it will allow it to set further it into the marble. Continue to blot the stain until you remove all the cleaner.

Step 3

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 as needed until you completely remove the stain.


Urine stains left on marble for long periods of time can cause etching, or a corroding of the marble. Sand the marble as needed and polish the marble by applying a marble gloss restorer product.
