The best pet urine removers eliminate the nitrogen within uric salt, a byproduct of dried pet urine. While many pet urine removers are labeled as pet urine removers, they is a distinct difference in removing pet urine odors or deodorizing them.
A true pet urine remover speeds up a process known as the nitrogen cycle to quickly eliminate the ammonia gas created by decaying uric salt. When a pet urinates in the backyard, the soil is loaded with decomposing bacteria that quickly break down the nitrogen into ammonia gas, which is then either absorbed into plants or evaporates into the atmosphere.
Carpet padding is basically sterile; it doesn’t contain the decomposing bacteria found in soil. When a pet micturates on sterile carpet, Mother Nature sends in decomposing bacteria to consume it, but it is no where near the amount found in soil.
Why Pet Urine Smells Like Ammonia
Pet urine is essentially waste from an animal’s blood. That waste is a very nutritious for certain bacteria, however, particularly its nitrogen content. As pet urine dries it turns from an acidic solution to an alkaline salt known as uric acid, or uric salt.
Uric salt contains nitrogen, an important nutrient for bacteria and life. As Mother Natures provides decomposing bacteria to consume the nitrogen, which produces ammonia gas. As bacteria consumes the nitrogen, they convert the solid-form nitrogen to its gaseous-form ammonia. It’s the ammonia that makes pet urine odors smell so bad.
Many pet urine removers focus on eliminating the decomposing bacteria to stop the ammonia odor, but this is counter productive. If the bacteria are eliminated, Mother Natures simply sends in more bacteria when the pet odor remover evaporates. For this reason the best pet urine removers focus on eliminating the source of the ammonia gas, nitrogen.
Types of Pet Urine Removers
In the pet urine remover industry, there are at least four main types of pet urine removers. These include enzymes, oxidizers, counteractants and encapsulants.
Encapsulants: Starting with least effective, encapsulants capsulize urine salts, which stops the bacteria from consuming it. This method is temporary however as the polymer eventually wears away and the odor and decay continues.
Counteractants: Counteractants are molecular structures that hide the odor by changing the shape of the odor molecule so it is not detected. Counteractants are also not permanent. As they evaporate the odor and decay continues.
Oxidizers: Oxidizers like hydrogen peroxide deliver near instant results by eliminating the decomposing bacteria. As mentioned earlier, this is counter productive as bacteria will return to continue consuming the available nitrogen.
Enzymes: Ur-OUT is composed of non-harmful probiotic spores that produce enzymes to consume the available nitrogen. Ur-OUT basically sends in a lot more decomposing bacteria to eliminate the nitrogen and stop the ammonia odor permanently.
Ur-OUT Pet Urine Remover
Ur-OUT is a combination of non-harmful probotic bacteria, organge essential oil and plan-based surfactant. These ingredients are over 99% natural and deliver industrial strength results.
Ur-OUT is fast, easy to apply and safeguards pet urine spots ensuring pet urine odors cannot reactive later like oxidizers, counteractants and encapsulants are known to do.
