When an animal urinates on the soil outdoors, that soil contains a lot of decomposing bacteria that quickly eliminates the urine in what is known as the nitrogen cycle. Pet urine contains an important nutrient known as nitrogen. As decomposing bacteria consumes the nitrogen they produce ammonia gas. That’s why rotting urine smells like ammonia.
The ammonia is either consumed by plant roots within the soil, or it goes up into the upper atmosphere where it is chemically altered by lightening. The compound returns to earth is a fertilizer for vegetation. Animals consume the vegetation and the cycle repeats itself when animal waste is produced.
This nitrogen cycle is a critical to sustaining life on our planet. Indoors however, the nitrogen cycle becomes a noticeable problem as the cycle is hampered by indoor air conditioning, limited bacteria and humidity levels. Because the cycle is dependent on humidity, we call it the uric salt cycle.
Uric Salt Cycle
Uric acid, also known as uric salt or simply urine salt, is a desiccant, which means that it attracts moisture to itself. This is the perfect scenario for decomposing bacteria as the bacteria requires both nitrogen and water to eliminate the urine.
This becomes a problem in a home as unlike soil, carpet and pad are practically sterile as it does not have the amount of bacteria or water found in soil. This slows the nitrogen cycle causing pet urine to break down at a very slow and stinky pace within a home.
The uric salt cycle is the process of pet urine off-gassing ammonia, but only when humidity levels are high enough for the decomposing bacteria to continue consuming the available nitrogen within the urine. This process can be agonizing as indoor humidity levels are dependant on weather systems and seasonal changes.
Just when a pet owners thinks he’s solved the problem, a storm comes alone and kicks the uric salt cycle into high gear producing the dreaded, ever lingering ammonia odor in their home.
Pet Urine in Carpet
It is not uncommon for pet owners to think that cleaning the carpet will take care of the urine odor, but the carpet is only the tip of the iceberg. Pet urine passes through the carpet and pools in the pad beneath. It can also soak into the wood or concrete subfloors making treatment more difficult.
Why Pet Urine Odors Smell Worse After Cleaning Carpet
Many pet owners make the mistake of cleaning the carpet thinking it will solve the odor problem, but it only intensifies it. Cleaning the carpet without treating the pad will kickstart the uric salt cycle. Now with the moisture from the cleaning providing plenty of humidity, the uric salt cycle intensifies and the decomposing bacteria start pumping out ammonia gas as fast as they can. This causes the home to smell far worse after the cleaning.
How to Stop Pet Urine Odor in Carpet
There are many different types of pet urine removers available, unfortunately many do not remove the urine odors permanently. Pet odor removers such as oxidizers, odor-cides, counteractants and encapsulants only deodorize the urine odor. After they evaporate, the urine odor will return, guaranteed.
Next to fully replacing your carpet, pad and wood or concrete subfloor beneath, eliminating the nitrogen within decaying pet urine is the most effective way to remove pet urine from carpet. This method involvles applying enzyme-producing probiotic bacteria into the carpet pad and allowing Mother Nature to do the rest.
How Ur-OUT Works
Ur-OUT is composed of probiotic bacterial spores that release countless enzymes to eliminate the available nitrogen within the decaying urine. Ur-OUT essentially provides a high dose of decomposing bacteria to speed up the odor elimination process similar to outdoor soil.
Why Choose Ur-OUT
Many pet urine removers mistakenly focus on eliminating the bacteria, but it’s the bacteria that actually removes the urine odors. Ur-OUT delivers not less, but more probiotic bacteria to quickly destroy the odor-causing molecules fast and forever. These probiotics can also safeguard the area to ensure odors will not return.
99% Natural Pet Urine Odor Eliminator
Ur-OUT contains over 99% natural ingredients. Ur-OUT is composed of non-harmful probiotic bacteria, natural orange essential oil and plant-based surfactant. Ur-OUT does not contain any toxic ingredients, VOC’s or harsh fumes. Ur-OUT smells wonderful while biologically cleaning your carpet to make it smells fresh and new again.
Nontoxic Biological Cleaner & Deodorizer
Ur-OUT also eliminates odors caused by pet vomit, puke, feces, bile, blood and more. Use Ur-OUT on carpet, rugs, upholstery, furniture, hardwood floors, tile & grout and concrete. You can also use Ur-OUT for stinky trash cans, dog kennels, cat litter boxes and more.
Ultra Concentrated Dormant Formula
Most pet urine odor removers are watered down. You may think you’re buying a lot of cleaner, but it’s likely mostly water. Ur-OUT is ultra concentrated for a few reasons:
- Concentrated to deliver maximum probiotic potency
- Ultra-concentrated at a 1:20 mixture ratio
- Ur-OUT activates on contact
- Ur-OUT doubles exponentially until the odors are gone
- Reduces product and packaging pricing
- Reduces environmental impact
Easy Application Process
Because pet urine is found beneath the carpet in the pad, treating the source of the odors just makes sense. Get Ur-OUT down into the carpet pad where the pet urine is and leave it there to dry naturally. The urine odors disappear as Ur-OUT dries. Shop now and learn how Ur-OUT is Fast & Forever!
