Back to talking about pet chemicals. For over the counter products there are four main categories of effects or what the chemicals can do for each situation. First you have your stain removers, which typically are there to just get rid of the yellow stain that’s left from some type of a pet stain or maybe it is a reddish color. These are mainly used for removing your pet urine stains. It’s got a lot of the same general chemicals as coffee and tea removers and are typically more acidic. They will help to pull out some of that yellowing and some of the discoloration that’s happened in your carpet.
Second you’ve got other chemicals that are for odor removal. These are typically an enzyme style formula, chemicals like nature’s miracle and their urine destroyer. These are supposed to go in there and have a dwell time, so they can get to all the layers of the carpet, the fibers the backing and sometimes even the padding below. They soak in and dwell for a while and remove all the contaminants, all the urine that’s in the carpet. These are able to get into areas that you can not just normally get to by cleaning it. You let it soak in there to reach the backing below the carpet fibers. These are your enzyme style odor remover products. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we move on to third type of pet product.
The third type you have your odor modifiers like a Febreze style product, which will come in there and mask the odor. They’re not specifically designed to remove the odor. They’re not specifically designed to remove the stain. They are more targeted towards changing the immediate smell of the area. Most of those use a cherry or citrus smell. They just immediately give you a new neutral odor that either masks and covers up the old odor or sometime to actually modify that odor if it comes in direct contact with the odor. It doesn’t remove it, it just chemically changes the smell of the odor so that you will no longer smell it as an offensive odor.
Fourth, you’ve got others that are cleaning agents. That are just simply design for when you’ve got a dog that has got sick or has gone to the bathroom number two and they are just there to break down the stuff so that you can use your little home carpet cleaner to remove the items out of the carpet.

Continuing on about pet products, so lets do a quick recap. We have your stain removers, which are of the category which get in there to try to remove the yellowness or try to remove the stain that’s left behind after you cleaned up whatever it is that your pet has done to the carpet. Next you’ve got your order removers. Which are typically enzyme based and they get in there, need a dwell time and they will consume or eat up the source of the odor. Next you have your odor modifiers which can either make the room smell enough like cherries that you can’t smell the offensive odor or they may actually change molecularly the odor itself so that it no longer smells bad. It’s like putting an orange to your nose while you eat an apple. You no longer can smell or taste the apple it kind of tastes and smells like an orange. The next one that they have is what we’ve called cleaners. They clean up the area to remove the physical pet problems you are dealing with. Carpet cleaning Tulsa we are Complete Carpet.
Finally we have disinfectants. This is for one where you’re wanting to make an area sanitary again. A dog got sick and vomited or threw up you. You cleaned it all up you’ve tried to remove the stain you’ve gotten rid of any offensive odors, but now you want to have something to make it safe and sanitary again, so that a baby could crawl on it. This would be a product like Odoban, where it is not going to clean the spot. It’s not specifically going to clean out or remove the odor. It’s not going to mask of the odor, and it’s not going to take away the stain. It is only going to kill any bacteria that is left in the carpet. Kind of like if you had raw chicken on your countertop. You could spray it down with lysol to kill off all the bacteria, but as long as the raw chicken is still sitting there the bacterial is just going to come right back. So you remove it. You clean it, you take a little bit of detergent, you remove all of the chicken, take some grease cutter to cut the grease, break it all down the extra grease that’s sitting there from that chicken fat. Then after that’s all done you take a little Lysol or Odoban and spray it all over to kill the bacteria that is there. The grease or detergent doesn’t remove all the bacteria and that’s where you disinfect it. It comes in that sanitation side of your things. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998.
One thing to be careful with it is, if you have a disinfectant, and you have an enzyme. You cannot use the two together because enzymes or natural organic style biological types shouldn’t be mixed with disinfectants. Reason is if you put a disinfectant in with it, it will kill off all of your enzyme. The enzymes need time to dwell, so you want to put those on if you’re going to use that product and not use your disinfectant style products. If you do want to use a disinfectant pet product don’t put an enzyme over top of it. Odoban is a good product to use after you’ve cleaned everything up and want to make it sanitary.
