How to Remove Pet Urine Stains and Odors
When you’re cleaning up after your furry loved one, you know how difficult it can be to get rid of pet urine stains and odors. Any type of urine from mammals, whether it is human or pet urine, contains uric acid crystals, which can only be removed by using an enzyme based cleaning product. Traditional products involving soap and strong chemicals aren’t able to work because they do not break down the uric acid crystals. The only permanent method of removing urine odor and stains is by using products specifically designed to bind with and destroy the uric acid.
Urine-Erase uses a two-step process. First, a dry enzyme powder is mixed fresh with water. This solution is poured onto the surface of the stain and allowed to sit for 8 hours. The second step is to pour the accompanying gentle peroxide solution over the stain. This solution changes the stain and odor into an evaporable gas of water and oxygen. Once the area has air dried, any remaining enzyme on the surface is vacuumed away and the area is clean and odor-free.
Urine-Erase works well for…
- Cleaning mattress, carpets and padding, and furniture which has been saturated with urine
- Floors of all types, including hardwood, concrete or tile, especially large surface areas
- Old set-in stains
- Situations in which you have at least 12 hours to clean the area
OdorZyme is a super strength plant-based surfactant, which digests the uric acid crystals at the source of the odor and stain. Its one step design makes it useful to immediately neutralize stains and treat small spots with the easy to use spray on applicator. It comes in both a spray-on trigger bottle and a large money-saving economy size. It is important to use the amount of product that is equal to the amount of urine that originally caused the stain. This is especially important when using a spray bottle because the tendency is to just wet the surface. If the urine has soaked into furniture or carpet, the cleaner must “soak” in also.
OdorZyme works well for…
- Spraying on vinyl mattress covers to simplify morning clean-up
- Soaking clothing, bedding, stuffed animals and other machine washable items as a pre-wash
- Small fresh urine spots or frequent animal wetting spots
- Situations when a convenient spray-on cleaner is all you have time for
