Post Cleaning Carpet Deodorizing Treatments
Enzymes treatments can be used to deal with organic odors. It works slowly by digesting odor causing organic materials. Enzyme treatments can be successful in dealing with very minor pet urine problems.
Anti-Microbial Treatments are used to deal with odors caused by bacteria. By killing the bacteria causing the odor, you eliminate the odor. With urine contamination it is possible to have a secondary bacterial growth which can contribute greatly to the odor problem. Most anti-microbial treatments leave a residue that continues to work against the contamination for some time. This may be a negative for those who have chemical sensitivity.
Oxidizers can be effective for all kinds of organic odors, but also odors caused by microbial organisms. Oxidizers work by transferring oxygen to the odor causing substance, which essentially burns up the odor causing molecule, thereby eliminating the odor. Oxidizers are environmentally friendly and may be preferred by those who are chemically sensitive.
Paring or Masking Agents
Some deodorizers work by masking the offending odor molecules. They don’t really change them chemically, they don’t neutralize them and they have no effect on the living organism that may be producing the odor. Pairing, or masking agents, capture the offending odor molecule and simply hide it from your nose temporarily.
Ok, that’s not really a name, but that's what we refer to when using a good scent to mask a bad scent. Foo Foo comes in many different scents; vanilla, peppermint, cherry, lemon, etc. These are the least expensive of the deodorizers. They temporarily replace an undesirable scent with a more desirable scent.
Which Deodorizing Option Works Best?
Removing the source of the odor is always the best deodorizing strategy. It’s also the solution that requires the most time and cost. So naturally, it’s the most expensive option. Which treatment for you depends on your circumstances and your budget.
