Odor Elimination is not Rocket Science, But Do NOT Make These Mistakes

Odor Elimination is not Rocket Science, But Do NOT Make These Mistakes

Want to save yourself a LOT of MONEY!? Here is a list of things NOT TO DO when eliminating some of the most common cat urine, dog urine and cigarette smoke odor problems. We talk to people every day who have made their home or vehicle odor problem exponentially worse by making one of these mistakes.
.
Cigarette Odor in Your Home 
1) Don’t paint to eliminate cigarette smoke odor! The absolute worst thing to do is paint over the walls or ceiling hoping to cover up the odor. Latex paint has minimal ability to seal in cigarette odor and, while a bit better, oil-based paint will not seal in all of the cigarette odor either, specially in heavily contaminated areas. What’s worse, the new paint acts as a barrier and effectively seals out any method of eliminating the odor source.
Cigarette Odor in Your Vehicle 
2) Don’t take it to a car dealership! Only one in a hundred have put any effort at all into figuring out how to fix this problem. All they do is try to cover it up—usually making the problem worse. Some will put a small ozone machine in the vehicle which will temporarily create a fresher scent that doesn’t last. 
Eliminating these common odor problems is not rocket science, but if you do the wrong things, or even the right things in the wrong order you can make the problem much more expensive in terms of both time and money.
Cat or Dog Urine on a Hardwood Floor
3) Don’t sand the floor before treating. Sanding causes the cracks between the boards to be filled with sawdust, which prevents our chemical from contacting the cat or dog urine that has run between the cracks. Treat first and then sand if desired
Cat or Dog Urine Odor in Carpet
4) Don’t use enzyme-based products. The more of these that you pour on your carpet, the deeper you wash cat or dog urine into the pad and sub-floor. 
5) Don’t live with pet urine odor because it isn’t good for your health! 
6) Don’t paint concrete or any sub-floor in an effort to seal in cat or dog urine odor. We consider painting with an oil-based sealer like Kilz to just be cheap insurance against any vestiges of pet urine odor that might be noticeable on a hot, humid day.
7) Don’t pay a carpet cleaner to get rid of pet urine odor as it’s a total waste of money. Pet urine has a low surface tension and penetrates into the backing of the carpet and, if the problem is with cat urine, some spots may have a tremendous amount of urine that penetrates deeply into the sub-floor because cats tend to pee in the same places repeatedly.
