Pet odours and stains are notoriously difficult to remove and maintain. It is one of the most common sources of annoyance among pet owners. There are numerous methods for combating pet odour, but enzyme cleaners remain one of the safest and most effective.
Enzyme cleaners are effective at removing both pet odour and stains, as well as carpet stains.
Masking or neutralising cleaning products
Cleaning products for pet odours usually take one of two approaches: masking or neutralising.
Masking an odour usually means using something stronger to cover up the smell. Cleaning products mask the odour by incorporating fragrances into the formulation. These fragrances are not only potentially harmful, but they also have no effect on pet odour remover or stains.
Fragrances are especially dangerous to pets because of their delicate and sensitive sense of smell. This is why fragrance is so bad for their sense of smell. We may be able to catch a whiff of it, but the scent is far more potent for our pets, in particular dogs.
Masking an odour is also ineffective against pet odours because the odours can mix. As a result, the situation smells even worse. Urine odour, for example, is difficult to eliminate; masking it would exacerbate the problem.
How does an enzyme cleaner work?
Enzyme cleaners work differently because they neutralise odours rather than masking them. While some enzyme-based cleaners do contain fragrance, the enzyme is usually responsible for the heavy lifting (neutralisation).
As a result, enzyme-based cleaners outperform other types of cleaning products. But how do they function?
Enzyme-based cleaners contain beneficial bacteria that produce enzymes. The enzymes break down the soil/mess during the cleaning process. This biochemical process is responsible for pet odour elimination. Enzymes come in a variety of forms, and their applications vary.
Enzymes only work for the specific problem at hand. You must select the appropriate enzyme for the job. As a result, you’ll often see products designed specifically for degreasing or removing pet urine.
Our Bio one™pet enzyme cleaner can be used to neutralise dog urine, remove cat urine, and much more. It can eliminate odours in the air, on carpets, sofas, hard floors, pet bedding, and a variety of other surfaces. Bio one™ uses enzyme cleaning to kill 99.9% of bacteria in a completely safe and natural manner.
Are enzyme cleaners safe to use for pets?
Non-toxic enzyme cleaners are still the best pet stain and odour removers for urine, vomit, faeces, blood, grass, and dirt.
Enzymes are biological compounds that help to accelerate chemical reactions. They degrade biological substances such as urine and faeces when used in cleaners. This makes them ideal for cleaning up after pets.
Enzymatic cleaners are non-toxic and biodegradable, so they can be used in any room of your house. There are enzyme sprays that are highly rated and can be used on almost any surface.
Maintain a safe distance between your dog and the cleaning area. If you use a spray bottle, the spray’s aerosol could enter the dog’s respiratory system. Therefore you must make sure the room is well ventilated and, if necessary, open the windows.
Bio one™ is a pet enzyme cleaner that uses only naturally occurring enzymes to remove odours and stains. Our eager enzymes work by dismantling the biological structures that are directly responsible for the odour or soils.
First and foremost, start mixing! Add a small amount of Bio one™ to your mix + spray bottle (or any spray bottle you have on hand), top up with normal tap water, and shake well to activate the enzymes. This will ‘power up’ your freshwater by multiplying millions of enzymes.
Bio one™ comes in a concentrated form, so one bottle will last a long time, reducing plastic waste.
Then, the key to getting the most out of your enzymes is to keep the surface damp and give it plenty of time to work. When given time to work, these grime-eating enzymes biodegrade dirt, melt away stubborn grease stains, and eliminate odours and airborne odours. These enzymes aren’t picky about whether they’re used on upholstery or hard surfaces. Simply ensure that you have thoroughly scraped or blotted the area before spraying liberally. Allow the spray to sit for five minutes (or longer) to allow the enzymes to do their work. Because it’s mostly water, you can spray as much as you want. Once spritzed, your super spray will continue to work for up to 24-48 hours.
What are enzymes?
Don’t be fooled to think that because enzymes are natural they are less effective than chemical cleaners. Enzymes are nature’s very own powerful cleaning tools. Making them the go to choice for pet owners who do not want to spray harmful chemicals around their pets and their home.
Simply put, enzymes are all around us performing millions of important tasks in our bodies and in nature every single day. They are a type of protein that act like a biological catalyst to speed up the break down of organic compounds.
Similarly to how saliva, (which contains enzymes), initiates the digestion process by breaking down food in our mouths, cleaning enzymes use the same ‘enzymatic digestion’ to effectively break down and eradicate the organic proteins present in urine, faeces, vomit, drool, dirt, food, and more.
This process not only makes cleaning easier but also prevents the growth of bad bacteria – the root cause of those unpleasant odours – in the air, on surfaces, and within the fibres of your soft furnishings.
Try out Bio one™ today, vomit and the other nasties is what nature created enzymes for.
