How to eliminate Urine & other organic odours
Organic odours are often considered to be the most stubborn type of odour, but what odours actually fall under this umbrella?
Urine, perspiration, vomit, sweat, faeces, grease and mildew are all organic odours, and when left untreated, they really can become problematic.
If you have kids – or fur-babies! – , you’ll probably be all too familiar with the lingering, intolerable smell of the above odours and the daunting task of trying to rid them from your carpets, beds and upholstery. Often, it can seem an impossible task when trying to eliminate urine odours, and we find ourselves spending money on multiple cleaning products (and even home remedies), in search of a solution. If you do find yourself reaching for the kitchen cupboards, it’s best to avoid vinegar as this can actually entice pets into soiling/urinating in the area further.
There are a number of steps you can take to prevent accidents/spillages from permanently damaging your belongings. For example, if bed wetting is a problem, it would be worth considering the use of a mattress protector.
During the puppy training stage, puppy pads can assist in keeping ‘accidents’ confined to one area, making for easier cleaning. Nonetheless, we know that accidents are sometimes inevitable!
So, how can I tackle these odours?
Because organic odours are primarily made up of biological molecules, only an enzymatic based cleaner will suffice.
Enzymatic cleaners are non-toxic cleaning agents which break down any odourous volatile organic compounds; removing the need for harmful chemicals and other toxic agents within the home or workplace; great news for those of us with kids and pets, who we find are generally more at risk around harmful chemicals.
With that being said, it’s important to choose a high quality enzymatic cleaner; particularly taking into consideration the percentage of bacterial enzyme within the product. PowAir Penetrator spray has one of the highest counts compared to similar products on the market, and is completely free of chemicals. Hurrah! Perfect to eliminate urine odours!
PowAir Penetrator can be safely used on both porous and solid materials including cloth, textiles, upholstery, carpet, wood and concrete; removing offensive odours at speed. Before applying, it’s important to clean the area as soon as accidents and spillages occur, soaking up as much excess ‘liquid’ as possible. By doing this, you lessen the risk of permanent staining. Once the area is clear of any residue, spray PowAir Penetrator directly onto the site and leave to absorb. For tougher/older odours, repeat as necessary.
The PowAir range has a number of products to tackle your everyday odour problems; a completely natural range that is both animal friendly and vegan. What’s not to love?!
