A Guide To Using Urine Neutraliser
Whether you're cleaning up a public restroom or your carpet after your pet pees on it, you know how difficult it is to remove the urine stains and odour. Traditional cleaning products like soap won't work. Why? Any type of urine has uric acid crystals, urochrome, minerals and other substances that are broken down and release that pungent smell. You'll need enzyme based cleaning products to break down these crystals. There also products that use bacterial cultures- these are the good bacteria that degrade the uric acid crystals and organic matter in urine, with the residual products being rinsed out later. Sometimes, like in public restrooms or at a bar, the substances can be so concentrated that it reeks of ammonia. Then there are there's the harmful bacteria around the urine that adds to the odour. The permanent solution for urine odours is urine neutralisers, which are specifically designed to bind with and deactivate the molecules causing the stains and stench. You can find products that serve both functions of urine cleaners and odour neutralisers.
You don’t want to live in a house stinking of pet urine. You can’t even comfortably use your own toilet with the smell of urea dangling in the air. No one wants to go to work and sit at a desk with a stench coming from the washroom down the hall. According to a recent Harris poll survey, 86% of adults equate the cleanliness of a restaurant's restroom to that of its kitchen. 75% of people are disgusted by urine odours and urine stains in public restrooms. Two-thirds of those surveyed would refuse to get served in business establishments such as restaurants or hotels with unclean restrooms. 50% were likely to review a business more negatively (online or offline) based on whether the cleanliness of the restroom. Research from Harvard Business School found that Yelp reviews have a 5-9% effect on business revenues. This means bad reviews translate to lower profits. Even majority of parents surveyed (70%) said that a school’s restroom reflects the quality of the school, its staff and its teachers.
Urine neutralisers are used everywhere- from households, in washrooms, on mattresses, nursing homes, childcare and healthcare facilities, to hospitality venues like hotels, transport means such as trains, boats, planes, in sewage works and even landfill sites. They are used by home owners, those with pets, cleaning companies and floor specialists. They permanently clean and remove urine stains and odours from carpets, fabric, wood floors, cement, tiles, synthetic grass, porcelain, mattresses and other surfaces. It works for all kinds of urine- from cats and dogs to human. General cleaning products usually just work on the water soluble urea and urochrome. They leave behind uric acid, which retains the stain and strong odour. That's because the crystals get attached to surfaces and are difficult to dislodge. Any dampness or humidity will trigger the crystals, and bring back the smell. For instance, porous damp surfaces like grout host the bacteria that feed on urine. The uric acid crystals release strong odours as the bacteria consume the urine. Getting a urine neutraliser will eliminate all these components, leaving behind a fresh fragrance.
How Urine Neutraliser Works
There are lots of great products for cleaning up urine stains and eliminating the odours. Some are designed for carpets, others are perfect for hard floors and there are also formulas for upholstery and even yard surfaces like concrete. Different products have different ingredients. Some of the most common are chemicals such as isopropyl alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine and the enzymes to break down the compounds. Each chemical has its purpose. For instance, hydrogen peroxide basically rehydrates the urine, making it easier for it to be mopped away. Chlorine ionises the volatile or pheromonal components in urine, so that it can no longer be absorbed into your nasal (specifically the vomero-nasal) mucus membrane. Basically you won't be able to smell the urine odour. Soaking the stained surfaces of hardwood, concrete or linoleum with a urine neutraliser containing chlorine, and rinsing it off the next day will fix the problem. Other neutralisers have ingredients that binds to odour molecules and deactivate them naturally. The bacterial culture products should be applied and allowed to air dry. This is because the biological removal of the urine deposits occurs during the drying time. You can later apply some water to the affected surface and blot it up using a paper towel. Removing the residue is important since it is sticky. Dry absorbents just need to be sprinkled on the area of concern- such as the carpet- given time to work, and vacuumed away.
There are neutralisers that you can use for when your fabrics gets soaked in urine- like when you’re holding your baby and he decides to let loose on your favourite suit. Get an enzymatic product, resoak your clothes and then give them a regular wash to make them serviceable again. This works for all fabrics including bed sheets. Leaving urine remover overnight gives the enzymes more time to work and the water to rehydrate the urine, so you can rinse it out. This is especially for hardwood and old wood floors. For some urine neutralisers, all you have to do is apply them and leave them to dry- that will fix the problem. These ones majorly rely on enzymatic agents that break down the proteins and fatty acids in the urine so that they are no longer volatile or water soluble.
Note that you should not use other chemicals or deodorisers when using a neutraliser to remove urine stains and odours. They tend to coat or encapsulate the uric acid crystals, making it difficult for urine neutraliser to penetrate. If you have used such products, try to remove as much of them as possible with water and a clean cloth. Blot the area and allow it to dry, and then apply the neutraliser.
Locating The Source Of Urine Odour And Stains
Sometimes it’s hard to see where the urine stains are, such as when you have a carpet. However hidden they are, these sources are still powerful enough to create an odour that permeates through the entire house. There are urine detectors designed to solve this problem. Popular products make use of ultraviolet light to locate urine you can't see. Have you ever seen police forensic officers scrutinising a crime scene? They usually use LED technology to identify evidence that’s invisible to the naked eye and hidden in plain sight. The urine detectors do the same. The light is designed to detect the protein in urine. They fluoresce dried urine in darkened rooms, to enable you to identify the target area.
We all love our four-legged friends dearly, but loathe the stains and messes they leave behind. Many pet owners use LED UV black light flashlights for locating fresh and set-in stains. It works equally well on both. In fact, the LED black light flashlights are so sensitive that they can also pick up other stains- such as blood, food stains, and even residue from previous cleaners. Be careful not to shine the detectors in your eyes, as they can harm you. A good place to start is the bathroom. Darken it to see how urine stains look like under the detector, then proceed to inspect the rest of the house.
How To Use The Urine Neutralisers
· Removing urine stains and odours on carpets and rugs.
Pet urine can ruin the carpet in no time. Then there is the odour to contend with. If you have a cat or dog, then you know how much the pee stinks. Follow these steps:
1. First, blot out as much urine as you can with paper towels, or a super-absorbent microfiber cloth until you no longer see any yellow. Blot, don’t rub- beginning with the area outside the stain ring, then moving in. Soaking up the excess urine quickly reduces the chances of the urine ruining your carpet or settling into the padding or the sub-flooring underneath the carpet.
2. To ensure you have the right product, test it out a small area on the carpet. If it does not damage or discolour it, you can continue.
3. Saturate all urine-affected areas with the urine neutraliser.
4. Give it time to air dry. It is during this time that the chemical components of the urine will be broken down.
5. After it's dry, apply a small amount of water to the area to rinse it, and absorb it using a paper towel.
If you have a pad under your carpet, your pet's urine may have seeped down into that too. If you can, pull up the carpet and repeat steps 1-5 on the pad. If it isn't possible to remove the carpet, apply enough product to drench both pad and the carpet. Spray or stream sufficient urine remover to ensure the top of the carpet is soaking wet. When this is happening, the urine odour may initially be stronger and the colour of the carpet will darken as the urine rises to the surface. In order to remove urine odours and stains from the flooring beneath the carpet, clear the debris, and apply the neutraliser. When you treat the affected area, remember to allow it to dry completely. You can use a urine detector to spot affected areas that you can't see.
· Neutralising urine on hardwood flooring.
First you need to get rid of the excess urine. There are various ways to do this. You can place kitty litter directly on the stain- it will soak the urine out of the wood. You may even see the litter turning yellow. This is for those people with cats. If you don't have one, you are unlikely to have kitty litter. The second option is to use paper towels to blot out all the liquid urine. Apply specialised hardwood urine neutraliser onto the affected area, leave it to dry and rinse it off.
· Removing urine from cement flooring.
Unsealed concrete may look hard and impermeable. However, it's actually like a hard sponge with numerous tiny pores. This means that urine can soak deeply in it. Absorb the excess urine using cat litter, and sprinkle an enzymatic cleaner on the area to remove the odour.
· Fixing urine issues on linoleum flooring.
1. Blot up the urine with paper towels a microfiber cloth.
2. Apply the neutraliser where your pet peed on the linoleum floor and let it air dry.
3. Rinse the area
· What to do when your pet pees on your furniture.
1. Don't wait for the urine to dry. If the fabric cover is the only thing that’s been soiled, remove it quickly so the urine doesn’t make it into your cushions. Soak up the urine from the cover with paper towels or an absorbent microfiber cloth and hand-wash it the fabric with the recommended product for the material. You can also remove the smell of your furry friend's urine by washing the fabric in your washing machine. Use cold water, and add some of the neutralizer to the wash cycle. Check the manufacturer's instructions to find out the correct amount to use.
2. If the urine has already reached the furniture- like if you didn’t have any fabric covering it, or you were not in the vicinity to deal with the emergency as soon as it took place, don't fret. Simply apply the neutraliser the soiled areas of your furniture. Saturate all the stained upholstery. Ensure the surface is wet enough to allow the urine neutraliser to soak deeply into affected area.
3. Cover the affected area using plastic wrap or film to ensure the neutraliser goes directly to the stain.
4. Give it some time to air dry (some minutes, or close to an hour- depending on the product you're using). For the older, set-in stains, you may need to apply, blot and dry the neutraliser more than once. Ensure that you let the area dry thoroughly in between consecutive applications.
5. After drying, apply a small amount of water to the area and blot it using a paper towel to remove the remaining residue. Completely neutralising the odour also reduces the chances of your pet returning to the same place to urinate again.
· Removing urine stains and odours from bathrooms.
Bathrooms usually have both glazed and unglazed surfaces. For instance, you can have a porcelain toilet bowl over glazed tiles with porous grouting. Bathroom surfaces are subjected to long-term build-up of uric acid crystals. Use a urine neutraliser to eliminate the smell and the source, to leave you with a sparkling clean, odour-free bathroom.
1. For new urine, blot up the excess using paper towels.
2. Spray affected areas using the neutraliser and be generous during the application- you need to soak the surfaces. Pay particular attention to the lower areas, rear and base of the toilet bowl and extending outwards across the floor. You can use a urine detector to find areas affected with dry urine.
3. Allow to dry and remove the residue using a clean cloth. Alternatively, you can lightly sponge the surface with water.
4. Re-inspect the area using the detector and repeat the procedure until you have eliminated all traces of urine. Usually, you only need two or three applications.
· Removing urine stains on clothing, towels
1. Spray wet areas with the urine neutraliser.
2. Place the affected item in a bucket or plastic bag for about fifteen minutes. Old and stubborn stains may require you to leave it overnight.
3. Wash normally and then rinse. The urine and residue will be removed in wash and rinse cycles.
· How to remove cat urine stains and odours from litter boxes
No one likes the smell of a dirty litter box- and that includes your cat too. The more your cat uses its litter box, the more urine it will leave in it. As the litter box absorbs more urine, the odour becomes stronger and spreads through the house. It can even become so strong that it makes you cat uncomfortable. Once a cat avoids its litter box for whatever reason, it creates all sorts of new problems. The feline will bypass its litter box and urinate everywhere else in your home. A cat can easily develop a new preference to do its business- and this might be to your living room rug or your favourite chair. You can fix this by simply ensuring the litter box is cat-friendly, using these steps:
1. First wash and dry empty litter box. Then spray all surfaces of the litter box, using the neutraliser. Do it both inside and out.
2. Allow to air dry.
3. Check for any remaining urine odour.
Virtually all cats like clean litter boxes, so unless you want to be dealing with a regular mess at home, keeping your cat's litter box up to its standards is very important. Ensure you scoop and change your cat’s litter at least once a day. If you have many cats, provide enough litter boxes. Ensure you have one for each cat in your household, plus 1 extra. For instance, if you have three cats, you need a minimum of four litter boxes. Cats can be quite choosy about their bathroom habits. Put the box far away from their food and water bowls. They don't like that smell too near their food. Neither would you. Do not place the litter boxes next to noisy or heat-radiating appliances, such as a dryer or the washing machine. The noises can make your cat nervous, while the heat can magnify the litter box smell, which could make the cat stay away from the litter box, and pick out other sections of your home.
· Permanently removing urine stains and odours from synthetic grass
Artificial grass is great- you don't need to mow it, aerate it, fertilise it or even water it- and it will always be green. However, if you have any pets in your home, you've got some issues to look out for. Pet urine on your lawn can damage it. For instance, dog spotting on turf grass is caused by the deposition of a high concentration of nitrogen compounds and associated salts on the lawn. It's like pouring too much nitrogen-containing fertilizer on the lawn. It will have the same effect as ammonia or a cup of bleach. While a little nitrogen is good for the grass, an excess will ruin it. It results in turf-injury or death. This is exacerbated by the fact that the pet urinates in specific areas, thus concentrating the deposits in a relatively small portion of the lawn. Usually it leads to a brown spot that's often surrounded by a halo of dark green grass. The high concentration acts as a poison and kills the grass, but later after it rains it's diluted, decomposes, and enriches the soil underneath, resulting in the ring of tall lush grass surrounding the spot. The urine also releases a stench into the air that will hit you each time you walk through the lawn. That's an awful thing to great you each time you open the windows facing the lawn in the morning, or when you come home from work each day.
1. Saturate the synthetic grass with the neutraliser. This way, you will ensure it has penetrated where the urine had seeped and has made contact to remove the underlying urine odour. For the product to be effective, it must come into contact with all the urine. You can cover the synthetic lawn using a plastic sheet during treatments to keep the neutraliser moist for as long as possible. It works when it's moist, and drying completely means that it's finished breaking down and deactivating the urine compounds.
2. Allow to air dry. This can last anywhere between an hour to all through night.
3. Hose down the grass to remove the residue.
4. Check if there's any urine odour permeating from the grass.
If your pet still uses the lawn, you'll need to carry out this procedure regularly- like once a week. You need to ensure that you only use the urine neutraliser that’s recommended for your type of synthetic grass. Also note that it's best to treat the lawn when the sun is down. Doing it on hot days can cause the neutraliser to dry too quickly, which reduces its effectiveness. In addition, don't use it when it is raining, as the water will dilute it and cause it to be ineffective.
