Pet odor. If you have animals, you will probably have to deal with it at one time or another. It can be an embarrassing problem keeping you from inviting company to your home and keeping you from fully enjoying your home. You do not have to live with pet odor nor do you have to replace your carpet if you have odor. You can easily eliminate this odor if you follow a few simple steps. First you have to find the source of the odor. This sounds easy, but it may not be as easy as just looking for yellow stains. Sometimes source of odor do not have a visible stain. To find the source of your odor, go to the store and buy a cheap black light. This should cost somewhere between $10 to $20. Now close all of the doors, blinds and drapes in the problem room. Turn the light on and move it over the carpeting in the room. Pet urine will shine bright white in the light. They do this because of the salts in the urine which glow under a black light. Mark the spots with a piece of tape or paper so that you can find them later without the black light. Now it is time to treat the odor. To successfully treat pet odor, you must understand what is causing the odor. The smell is caused not by the pet urine, but by bacteria. The bacteria is feeding on the pet waste and produces ammonia as a byproduct which cause a foul odor. So to get rid of the odor, you must get rid of this food source for the bacteria. To do that, you will use a digester or enzyme. If you visit your local pet store, you should be able to find an enzyme treatment. One popular brand is called Outright. Follow the directions on the bottle and mix up your enzyme solution. You will then saturate the area of the odor so that the solution reaches the carpet pad, tack strip and/or sub floor. The enzyme needs usually between 24 hours to several days to work depending on the extent of the odor and the amount of pet waste present. You might need to cover the area with plastic wrap to keep the area moist during that time period. Once you have given the enzyme time to work, and you have dried the carpet, you might have a visible stain on the surface that can be cleaned with a regular carpet spotter. Thats it, you have treated one of the most common of carpet problems. If you find that you cannot remove the odor with an enzyme spotter, you might have a severe problem. Contact a local carpet cleaner to get an estimate on odor removal. They will have tools at their disposal which might be able to rid you of your problem. Most companies will be happy to provide you with a free estimate. We have 6 cats and a dog so keeping our home clean and odor free is important. I`ve used a variety of products and only one had worked. I`m always looking to find better working products though and like having a variety on hand so I figured I`d give the Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator a go. At first when I got the bottle I thought it had to be a joke. The bottle is small. Of course that`s a bottle of concentrate and you use 2 ounces of the concentrate for every 32 ounces of water. So while this bottle was tiny for a cleaner and odor eliminator it makes a LOT of product! So don`t get discouraged when you receive the bottle! Angry Orange is a commercial grade citrus odor eliminator that was originally formulated for use in industrial applications such as feedlots, sludge-ponds, poultry farms, rendering plants, pet waste removal companies and boarding kennels. The product smells or a citrus/orange scent so you don`t feel like you`re using a typical cleaner. I like to spray it on fabrics to help freshen the house, but I also like cleaning the litter boxes out with this stuff so they come out smelling fresh between each litter change as well. Same goes for clean up after the dog - particularly if she has an accident on the carpet. Yuck! The spray helps eliminate that odor quickly and just about immediately. So far it`s a great product and a new must have in our house with all our fur babies!
