We have a cement floor in our night holding pens.

Two of our dogs always leave at least one "deposit".

I clean them every day and use Comet and a shrub bush. (OK....some days hubby does it)

I am starting to see stains...even from pee in places.

Hubby told me I can't use anything stronger because of the wires under the floor for heat. They are just in the inside part.

I even use hot water.

Any ideas what to use or, is hubby right.

Perhaps over the years kennels have stains???

natures miracle will work on cement.

at the shelter i used to work at we used a product called Quat, its used in hospitals, and when diluted correctly is safe for use with under floor heating

for realy tough stains we used TSP (from the hardware store) 1oz mixed with 1 cup of warm water (war gloves) then mix that with enough baby powder or corn startch (or any other absorbent poweder) until its a paste. paste onto the stain (because its not a liquid it doesnt penetrate deeply enough to usually be a problem for under floor heating systems) wait untill it dries then scrape off.

For a milder solution baking soda mixed to a paste with White vinegar, again mush onto the stain itself, leave and sbrub away.
