When deciding on which of the many products to buy with a view to neutralize odors and remove stains, just do the following:

  1. Look beyond the tantalizing logos and colorful labels bearing golden seals of approval; many will promise a 100% money back guarantee if the product fails to remove all unwanted stains and odors. Just by reading the ingredients on the back of the label you’ll be able to determine if the product can ‘deliver on its promise’.
  2. Look to see how many enzymes and bacterial strains the solution contains; it’s that simple.  You don’t need to understand what an enzyme is or what it does, all you need to know is how concentrated the solution is.

Not to be funny, but unless the product has a mega dose of enzymes which have been cultivated from several bacterial strains – you may not have a solution to your problem – you may just have a container full of liquid.  True, it may help in the short term; the stain and odor may seem to disappear, but the proof that the enzyme solution failed to eliminate them will soon turn up along with the temperature!   Summer heat and humidity will cause the residue of urine, feces or vomit to activate.  This is true for both humans and our friends with paws!   The bad smell can even become worse than it originally was and instead of having just a smelly room you could end up with a stinky house!

If the unwanted stain & odor, that seemed to be gone when the carpet cleaners left, returns after awhile… then you’ll know that the product used was inadequate to the task.  Sometimes the reason for this is simply because not enough solution was applied.  That’s not to ignore the fact that the enzymes needed to remove unwanted stains and odors, are specific; the ones that remove the acids found in vomit will not necessarily remove the proteins present in urine or feces.

Think about it; if a dog has a bladder capacity of a pint or so, this will soak the carpet where the dog peed.  Add to this that the living enzymes and proteins present in an animals urine is used for marking territory and does so for an undetermined amount of time, why would we think that we can just spray on it and hope to eliminate it?

Substances such as urine, feces, and vomit from both pets and humans are organic and living.  That’s why they continue to emit unwanted smells long after they’ve left the body.  As living and organic substances, they respond to heat and humidity.  You could say that the heat activates the enzymes and causes them to grow…then, of course, that emits the smell we want eliminated!

The best way to test how effective your carpet cleaners are is a simple one.  Once the carpet is dried, let your dog back into the room, if you don’t have a dog, borrow one and watch them make their typical beeline to the exact place where they or another pet fouled.  We may call that the ‘crime scene’ but the dog uses it to sniff out an entire encyclopedia of useful information.

If a concentrated dose of the required enzymes had been applied during the cleaning process, a pet would not be able to reenter the room and detect the precise location of the stains and odors.

No matter if you’re a commercial carpet cleaning company hired to clear up from a crime scene (a more serious one than a pet fouling),a pet owner with stains and odors you want rid of, or a baby boomer who is caring for aging and incontinent parents.   All you need to do is read the products label and buy the one that contains the highest number of enzymes cultivated from the most bacterial strains.
