Pet Urine Stain & Odor Bio-Enzymatic Cleaner | Doggone Pet Products
Many professional carpet cleaners are still using enzyme based and bio-enzyme based deodorizers for dealing with pet urine odor problems in carpeting. Most of these products contain multiple strains or types of enzymes or bacterial cultures that are designed to break down and digest the urine odors at the molecular level. Truth is, many of these products work very effectively at eliminating pet odors – when given the proper amount of time and the perfect environmental conditions. Therein lies one of the fundamental issues with using enzyme based deodorizers – they take a long time to work, anywhere from four hours to 24 hours. Often times, the use of an enzyme deodorizer requires a return trip to the customer’s home or business. Not only that, none of the enzymes contained within these formulas are really designed to eliminate the stains caused by pet urine on carpets nearly as effectively as the oxidation option.To truly kill odors from pet accidents or animal waste and urine, you need a product that is a definitive enzyme cleaner. Even some of the highest selling products on the market for urine stains and smells are not enzyme cleaners, so their effects are limited.The use of has several big advantages over the use of enzyme deodorizers. First, it is faster. The release of the effervescent oxygen immediately triggers the chemical breakdown of urine into the basic components of such as nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Second, it is more durable. Since you have to keep the living organisms alive which are producing the enzymes, you have to be able to control the environmental conditions – room temperature and pre-existing chemicals in the carpet just to name a couple. Oxidation solutions are mixed and used on the spot and are more durable and not as effected by environmental conditions. Third, the oxidation action is a stain removal action, making it much more likely to effectively eliminate the yellow stains in the carpet caused by the urine. Finally, and perhaps the most overlooked advantage of using Oxidation is that the customer can see the vivacious, bubbling, effervescent mixture going right to work eliminating even the most stubborn urine stains with their own eyes.The solution is to thoroughly soak the soiled area with Thornell’s Dog Odor-Off. Dog Odor-Off will eliminate odors regardless of how long it’s been or even after all sorts of other remedies have been tried. (Dog Odor-Off will work where enzyme-based products won’t. Enzyme products are not compatible with detergents and germicides and usually there will be a residue of one or both in the carpet from earlier treatments).
