Do pet stain removers work?
Pet stains on carpet and other types of
flooring can be nasty to get rid of and even nastier if you don't. How
do I know? I sell pet stain remover but I always tell people the truth
about the products they are buying. Many web sites on the internet
give a 100% money back guarantee on pet stain removers but how can
they possibly guarantee a product when they havenít even seen the mess
that the product has to clean up. From my experience with amazing
internet cleaning chemicals including pet stain removers is that they
usually don't work. Most pet stain remover websites bank on the fact
that you either won't take the time to return the product or you'll
give up on your pet stain problem and have a professional come in to
finish the job. The truth about pet removal products is they sometimes
work and they sometimes don't it all depends on the surface that your
cleaning up and how bad the damage really is. At least once a day I
email a customer back and tell them they need a professional (in some
cases a demolition crew) to come in and first take a look at the
actual problem and then decide if they can accomplish the task.
There are two different types of pet stain removers, volatile
chemicals (chemicals that react with certain compounds) and enzyme
products. Chemical products work by changing the chemical make up of
urine. This is all great except for the fact that youíre using a
chemical on your flooring or carpet and chances are youíre not going
to get all the chemical out. These chemicals can remain in the dye
pores and fibers of your carpets for many years or until the carpet is
replaced. Enzymes work by eating the urine on the floor and then turn
anaerobic and die. It seems really gross but you can't see it
happening and enzymes are a part of nature unlike man made chemicals.
In my experience I have dealt with both types of concoctions and feel
that enzymes do the best job. Enzymes smell better and won't harm your
carpets and are more environmental and people friendly. When using
either of these methods there is one truth that holds true and this is
where the "sometimes they work and sometimes they don't" statement
comes in. If the enzyme or chemical does not come in contact with the
pet urine it will not work. If youíre pet stain problem is to the
point that the wood or cement underneath the carpet has been saturated
for an extended period of time it's time to call a construction crew.
Your sub floors will have to be replaced and cement has to be sealed,
this is the only way to get rid of cat urine odors once this much
damage has been done. For some of my customers that I talk to it just
seems like having flooring removed or cement sealed is too hard to
swallow and there just has to be an easier and cheaper way to solve
the problem. The truth is that once cat urine as seeped into a porous
substance like wood or cement nothing can remove or neutralize it.
When it gets damp or humid that smell will always come back and in
some cases get worse over time.
For infrequent pet stains or pet accidents pet stain removers can work
extremely well. These products can easily neutralize and eliminate pet
stains on a carpets surface or already sealed flooring. Don't be
fooled by amazing products and 100% guarantees because if they havenít
seen the problem the product is going to tackle they might be doing a
good job at removing your money from your wallet and not the pet stain
from your floor.
