How to remove odours caused by urine
1. Pet Odour
When treating pet odours, always make sure you check for contamination the tackless carpet strip, wall skirting, walls, curtains and furniture. Animals have a habit of “marking” their territory.
2. How to Inject UCT
A neat way to get beneath the carpet, or inside upholstery is to use a large syringe filled with undiluted Urine Contamination Treatment. The needle is pushed through the carpet backing and with a circular motion the UCT is squeezed all over the carpet backing and cushion.
3. Reappearing Odours
Untreated urine present additional odour problems when the relative humidity is high the salts and crystals that are formed are hydrophilic and draw moisture to them, this condition reactive the odour problem which may have been dormant during cold dry conditions.
4. Hard Surfaces
In addition to carpet and upholstery, Urine Contamination Treatment will control urine odours from urinals, tile, concrete, wood floors, as well as other hard surfaces.
5. Maintenance Cleaning
During routine cleaning, mild odours resulting from soiling and spillage can be controlled with a general contact deodoriser like Kill Odour line of products. Basic deodorisation can be accomplished with the addition of as little as 100ml per 50L of ready-to-use solution, or sprayed to the carpet at a 5:1 dilution prior to cleaning.
6. Urine Stains
Urine is one of the most troublesome stains facing a cleaner. The owner may not have known the accident happened or may feel all of the urine has been removed from the textile; since generally no immediate change is visible, it is assumed to be gone. Later, after the carpet has been cleaned and all soil removed, the stain might become apparent. The cleaner may be accused of placing some type of staining material on the textile or of using some chemical, which has produced a discolouration. Various products available to the consumer indicate that urine stains are simple to remove and so they cannot understand why a professional is unable to remove them. When an old urine stain becomes yellow, this is often a permanent colour loss caused by the chemical content of the stain and will not be removable, except by fibre recolouring.
7. Summing Up
After the carpet has been treated with Urine Contamination Treatment a small amount of UCT and urine will remain. Because of the UCT special formulation, absolutely no urine odour will be detected. The dry residual UCT continues to work on deodorisation for effective masking. All that can be detected is a delicate lingering odour. The remaining urine odour dissipates at the same rate as the floral scent of UCT. Thus when the floral scent is gone, so is the urine odour.
