No 1. Enerzen Commercial Ozone Machine
Rated Best Domestic Machine

Over all we score this Ozone Generator 4.85/5. These represent incredible value for money, has an outstanding output of  Ozone gas for domestic and commercial applications (upgraded to 6000mg in 2019) and has been purchased by many of my customers with great success. It is even used to minimize smog seeping into apartments in big cities!  Enerzen commercial ozone generator.

Quality

For the price this machine is manufactured very well and is durable for normal use. An amazing precursor to a large commercial ozonator for commercial operators.

User Friendly

Easy to use controls and useful timer. Excellent carry handle for transporting and a good weight, not too heavy and not too light.

Ozone Output

The Ozone output is outstanding and definitely the highlight for us along with the awesome manufacturing of this unit. We are blown away by the output and quality of ozone. Its a great machine.

Our review of the Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator
Summary

We own 5 of these machines and have had them for a over 5 years now. We purchased these to do interior ozone shock treatments in cars, houses, basements and pet facilities. We find them more reliable than UV ozone machines, and extremely inexpensive. 
The machinery will do a whole house (good amount of o3 output) if you move it room to room (make sure you let the gas dissipate first) or you can leave it in a central position and  for 24 hours with airflow generation done with fans . Great for sanitizing dander also. The Enerzen purifier is a powerful little unit and the Ozone Pump is strong enough to penetrate into the far reaches of a whole house.
The first thing that impressed us about these machines is the solid manufacturing and the amount of small bolts firmly holding the machine together. Some other Ozone machines we have used are very poorly constructed and do not have enough fastenings to handle the rugged life a contractor gives it, but not these units. They are very solid.
The unit is lightweight and easy to transport and a sensible size for storing away and placing in the work vehicle.
Size: 6.75″(H) x 8″(W) x 5.75″(D)
The generator weighs about 5 pounds and comes with US 110 voltage and 55 watts of power for the generator. It uses Corona discharge method of generating ozone which means less maintenance and all in all these are incredible value for the price.  The corona discharge means  no copper lining and no UV bulbs to break. But at the price of these ozone machines its not a concern as they last for years any way. We have found the slide connectors inside the units to be quite thin however this also is not a big concern and very cheap to replace if required. The Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator has a powerful 6000 mgs/per hour of output, and a very useful timer with max setting of 2 hours. You can run the machine on “continual” and turn on and off manually. This is very helpful when using the machine for Ozone Shock Treatments such as getting rid of cigarette smoke smell in car .
The machine is well constructed and very good value for money.
Over all we love this machine and for the price you won’t beat it.

Ozone Output

Our review of the Ozone Power OP5000 Commercial Air Ozone Generator Mammoth REVISED 2019

Incredible Output of Ozone at 5000mg Per hour.
This was the machine we used when more Ozone is required. This Ozone Generator Machine has 5000mgs per hour of Ozone output (high) and with a 5 year warranty you would think this must be the best value on the net however lately issues developed with the workmanship and some of the internal parts on this unit and the reliability is now not great. It also led to testing the 5 year warranty and this being a return to base warranty meant most people can not ship it as the postage is too prohibitive. It is still well priced however and the unit has excellent ozone output when it does work. . Feedback has been that after 3-4 months of use, the machine parts fail and it is dead. If you are happy to proceed and accept that the life span will be short then this unit has the timer like the Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator ozone power op5000 and was of solid construction like the Enerzen, (but as pointed out above it now seems some of the parts are only lasting 4-5 months). The unit is bigger, was better constructed and more powerful (does up to 5000 square feet) and for a humble $25-00 more than the Enerzen it makes perfect sense if you need a more powerful unit. The downside is the life expectancy of the unit and the return to base warranty which means you have to ship it back the manufacturer in Canada to get it repaired and that freight for most people shipping the Ozone machine will cost more than buying it. The OP5000 is named due to the 5000mgs per hour of Ozone Output. For a commercial ozone machine we feel this is poor.
The machine is slightly heavier at 6 pounds which is caused by the a heavier outside metal casing. Size: 9 x 9 x 7 inches. It comes with US 110 voltage and 55 watts of power for the generator. The OP5000 is very well constructed using solid 3mm metal casing and it uses the Corona discharge method of generating ozone which means less maintenance and all in all these add up to incredible value for the price when it is working. The Ozone Power OP5000 Commercial Air Ozone Generator & Air Purifier has an even more powerful 5000 mgs/ per hour of Ozone output which is suited for larger areas and stronger odor contaminations such as cooking smells inside a house, or strong mold odors in a basement area or garage. This unit also has the very handy timers or you can run it continuously as well. These types of units when we first started in 2002 were over $1000 . Not any more, at the price point the ozone machine sells for we say good value.

Pros

  • Easy to Carry
  • High Ozone Output
  • Very Economical
  • Durable but don't drop it.

Cons

  • A bit heavy for domestic purposes
  • Power cable could be longer again!! (You will need to use an extension)
  • Alot of Ozone so be careful
  • Parts failing and life expectancy of unit reduced to 4 months in late 2018

Worth the Money!
Used it to remove cigarette odor from our car and the results were great.
Neighbors couldn’t even believe the results.

Ozone Output

Our review of the Odorstop 2500 Ozone Generator Another great unit from the Odorstop Stable and this one caught our eye due to the ease of servicing the Corona Discharge Plates and the ability to buy spares as shown below, The parts are easy to install and are very well priced.

  • Price: This unit is dearer than the others and the reason for this is it’s a commercial grade machine with the ability to service and replace parts. It is also a silent ozone machine. Most Ozone machines use a Corona Discharge Method where a current is passed between metal plates and the air passing through is oxidized and turns into O3 gas. The plates get build up on them of contaminants and this can affect the Ozone Gas Output. Service as at 2019 is good
    This machine allows you to easily remove the Metal Ozonator Plates and replace them inexpensively with new ones thus making the unit last for years. The commercial operators or landlords will be interested in this unit as it will last longer than the cheaper ones due to the ability to be serviced and have the Ozone parts and plates replaced. We think for some one working in a business using this machine, this is essential.
  • Design: The machine also has an air inlet filter (albeit thin) but at least it is something to try to keep the dust out. The units are quite pricey but for a commercial operator these come highly recommended for the ability to replace the ceramic plates. With Ozone machines you have two choices really. Buy something cheaper like the Enerzen and when it fails throw it away or invest more and get a commercial unit like this one and service it to make it last for 10 years or more. The machines are well constructed, solidly built and  weighing in at 9.5 pounds she is quite heavy, but if you are a commercial guy weight is good!. It means the machine will be well constructed and have solid parts which is what we need for durability. Odorstop also do a great range of blowers as well as commercial ozone machines Click here for more information

     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Commercial Ozone Generator Machine Reviews

Overall we score this unit 3.5/5

Ozone Output

Our Review of The Green Air Purifiers Green Air Classic Plus Alpine Air Purifier Ozone Generator.

The Green Air Purifiers Commercial Ozone Generator and Air Purifier has a powerful 3500 mgs/per hour of output and has the distinct advantage of having washable carbon filters at the air input area to prevent the machine from sucking in debris and dust particles but we feel the extra price and clunky packaging makes this unit not as desirable for commercial operators. The filter makes the machine last longer and guarantees the output of Ozone is not affected by dirty corona discharge plates . Having no dust entering the air inlet means the ozone output should always be as rated, there won’t be a requirement for servicing and cleaning the inside, where as the cheaper units that do not have filters, need the production units cleaned to ensure the ozone output is maintained. Typically the fan gets coated in dust particles and allergens. The ozonator has a nice electronic control panel for operating the machine and easy to follow controls . The body however although its well built is very impracticable for commercial use without handles and a wooden styled outer that is scratched easily.

Pros

  • We love the filter, means longer production times for ozone as less contaminants on Corona discharge.
  • Solidly constructed throughout
  • High Ozone Output
  • Very Economical

Cons

  • Quite large
  • Power cable could be longer again!! (You will need to use an extension)
  • No handles to pick it up and the wood finish gets scratched
  • Over complicated control buttons which are unnecessary and prone to failure

Overall we score this unit 4.8/5

Ozone Output

This is very handy for doing larger areas
Our review of the A2Z Ozone MP 8000 Ozone Generator
Summary

This is just one of the commercial ozone machines from the “stable” from A2Z. We have been very impressed by the quality of their units and we love these machines as they have some features that the other commercial machines lack which make them very versatile for the applications they can provide. A2Z are targeting both the commercial operators with Odor removal. For example the most noticeable feature is the ability to add an Oxygen Generator to the unit, which in turn will boost the ozone output to very high levels plus remove the Nitric Oxide Component of the O3 gas. The machine also has a external vent to allow a hose to be attached and run into the treatment areas i.e the hose into the room with odor issues. This is very handy for doing larger areas where the source of the Ozone, i.e the machine is located outside of the treatment areas thus allowing clean air input with no contaminants to jeopardize the quality of the Ozone gas or the machine internal components being damaged by the actual gas itself.
The unit has a very efficient internal pump to push the ozone out if you are not using the Oxygen Generator Option and we feel for the money the pump could be a little bit more powerful however as alot of the commercial operators know, A cheap fan on the floor will push the ozone gas around very well regardless.
These Ozone machines are the real deal and we are impressed by the range put out by A2Z so far. Click here for more information

Pros

  • We love the ability to add a Oxygen Generator, means longer production times for ozone as less contaminants on Corona discharge.
  • Solidly manufacturing process throughout
  • High Ozone Output
  • Very Economical

Cons

  • Nothing
What is Ozone 

o3 Ozone gas is a naturally occurring substance which is present in our environment and is caused by electrical currents in UV rays reacting with oxygen and forming a short life gas called o3.  Ozone generator machines (that we do machine reviews on) are a manmade way of duplicating nature and increasing the amount of ozone particles.

o3 Ozone gas is prevalent in the ozone layer and provides protection by breaking down ultraviolet radiation from the sun.  
At times Ozone gas is very prevalent on earth, particularly after an electrical storm,  when O2 gas (oxygen) is split by the electrical currents in the lightening storm and o3 gas (ozone) is created.  

Ozone breaks down very quickly particularly when there are a lot of electrolytic particles in the air known as contaminants. In highly populated areas on earth, ozone is not as effective due to the pollutants in the air. Pollution is reduced when satisfactory levels of ozone are around however humans can not breathe large levels of ozone gas as it is toxic to breathe in when it is concentrated. It will cause an irritation to the throat and lungs.
An Ozone generator machine simply  replicates nature and splits oxygen into ozone gas as a discharge via an outlet, however because the amount of ozone produced is high it is toxic to breathe. The machine typically pumps the ozone out into a room and can be turned off when required and allowed to dissipate before entering.
Ozone gas contains nitric oxide and this is why oxygen generators are often attached the source of air to form pure ozone. When moisture is mixed with ozone a residue called Nitrogen dioxide is formed and is corrosive to many items, so care is needed. High levels of moisture and humidity are required for this to happen so it is recommended to use dry air as a source for your machine.

Is Ozone effective at disinfection?

Ozone at the right concentration, is effective for apartments and living areas to provide sterilization for bacteria and viruses if done regularly using shock treatments. (small doses at regular intervals)
Ozone o3 is widely used in pet shelters to treat enveloped and non enveloped viruses. This is done with stronger levels on ozone gas. (More than 30 grams per hour) and is done overnight when all animals are removed and after a thorough clean down first. Note the treatment needs to be done on dry surfaces to ensure maximum effectiveness.

Is it safe to use Ozone in my home?

Lets be very clear. Ozone is a toxic gas and needs to be used with ozone 03 safety precautions in place. An expert commercial operator who understands the dangers of o3.  Humans are not designed to breathe in concentrated forms of ozone gas o3 and doing so will lead to  problems. Your ozonator sellers should provide some service manuals with the precautions listed.

Having said that even the best Ozone generators used incorrectly will still do damage. However using a ozone machine at the right concentration, with the right safety precautions is a very effective way to provide sterilization and odor removal for apartments and living areas. Ozone Shock treatments is another effective way to remove mildew and mold, however it should be noted that most ozone machines output nitric oxide when o3 is live which is toxic to humans  and should never be breathed in. So when searching for ozone generator reviews it is worth noting if the machine has an effective timer. If not then you can pick one up from a local hardware store. The critical thing here is all ozone shock treatments should be performed using a timer so the o3 gas has time to dissipate and turn back into oxygen before the occupier of the house comes home.

How to remove sewer smell in the house. Expert Odor Remover shares simple strategies

Hi Craig The Odor Dude Here.
If you have the misfortune to have a sewer smell in house, shower drain smells or a sewer smell in the bathroom and you are concerned at the terrible odor and potential health problems associated with sewer gas smell in bathroom or elsewhere, then do not fear as we have all the solutions for you listed below.

How to remove raw sewage outside

sewage smell from toilet

Unfortunately from time to time a sewer pipe breaks under the soil, and then feces and other waste seeps into the yard.
All the jobs we have been called out to, have had the sewer pipe repaired by a plumbers but most of them, do not know how to deal with the odor and the sewage waste remaining in the area.
Simple Solution for outside Sewage Seepage
If the sewage has seeped into the OUTSIDE living spaces, or under your house, then a simple solution is to cover the area in HYDRATED LIME.  Best to use the pellet variety rather than the cheaper powder as it will have less impact on you and the surrounding area.
Lime will consume the waste matter very quickly and then break down residues and become one with the soil. It also removes the odor instantly. this can often be the cause if the house smells like sewage also.
WARNING KEEP ANIMALS OFF AND CHILDREN as lime is very corrosive and will damage those that come in contact with it.
You need to cordon the area off and put signs up with WARNING HYDRATED LIME PRESENT. DO NOT ENTER.
The lime will break down the feces very quickly and remove the odor.
Avoid the lime with high powder content due to dangers with inhaling. Pellets like below are much better.
Click the image below for more details on where to buy the correct type of lime.

How to get rid of sulphur smells coming from a shower and in the bathroom.

Sulfur smells in your bathroom are generally caused by bacteria trapped in the drain and because no oxygen is present the sulphur smell keeps increasing. The best way to treat this is pour some of my formula down the drain and then wait for it to work.

How to remove sulfur smell from a drain

This is similar to the above situation. There are a few suggestions to get rid of the odor.
1. If you have access to the waste outlet i.e not the shower drain but the drain waste outside then you can pour my formula into the drain which will kill the bacteria and remove the smell. Ensure there is no blockage in the pipe such as trapped hair etc which may be preventing the waste water from flowing through. Tip the formula down the shower drain so that it eats anything stuck in the drain on the way down, plus kills the bacteria in the outside waste. This a safer and more effective method.

How to remove poo and sewer odor when camping out.

Here is a trade secret on how you can keep the odor down. You can also use HYDRATED LIME when camping for your in ground toilet (Long Drop). Never remove the air supply as dangerous gases will build up if no air can penetrate but Lime will eat all the feces and remove odors very quickly.

They are favored by people camping out for a few weeks or as in the case above when the sewer is damaged by an earthquake. Basically you dig a very deep hole with a post hole borer and then place a toilet above it as shown.
the-long-drop-open-air-toilet-kununurra

How to remove the odor without Lime

Step No 1
Have a large fire going (you have these when you are camping anyway right?)

Step No 2
When the fire has died down grab a bucket of ashes onto a metal spade and tip these down the long drop hole (preferred when they are not red hot as you may cause damage to the toilet seats or surrounding structure)

Step No 3
Go and have a beer and enjoy the toilet next time you use it as the odor will be totally gone guaranteed.

How to dissolve dog poop in a yard | Effective, simple to follow step by step instructions

Hi Craig The Odor Dude here.
A regular question we get at the Odor Dude headquarters is how to clean dog poop off concrete and more importantly how to dissolve dog poop in a yard. Dog poo or dog poop can be very annoying at the best of times, and not everybody likes to pick up the feces with their plastic bag or a spade and want instead a way to make it dissolve and vanish. Here are a few options. 

Option One. Use waste terminator in a dog poo tank as shown below. Cheap and very effective

Click the image below for more information

Option Two

Remove the bulk of the poop with a spade or scoop and then mix up my odor removal formulation . Pour a generous amount onto the remaining feces residues and it will dissolve over a few days. Note this will not work on large dog poo stools, only the residues

The process.  Step No One: Remove any solids and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way.
Step No Two: Make up our odor removal formulation and use it at the normal strength.
and tip it onto the area where the dog poo was. You will notice white foaming as shown by the BBQ photo shown below.

dog poop foaming white after treatment

Lets start off with a simple method using Lime

Option No One: Typically Lime is a good product to dissolve dog poo, however the downside if someone walks in it with bare feet (or dog paws) the lime will burn the skin so care is needed. If you are in a controlled environment i.e the dog is watched and on a leash so it can’t come in contact with the Lime then all you need do is apply a cup of lime to the feces and the product will  destroy it. The poop dissolves over a few days
Please take care with the product as Lime can cause burns to skin. Wear gloves, eye protection and skin coveralls when applying it and keep animals away.
Also do not buy a “pelleted donolytic limestone”
The Lime you buy must be a powder format and be white. See below for the best type to use

HOT TIP
For future contamination dilute the product with water to make it go further and use regularly

Well I hope that has been helpful for you and you now know how to dissolve dog poop in your yard.
Any questions about the techniques shown above please ask me below and i will do my best to help you.

Important Tips
Make sure you locate where all the feces is
This may sound obvious however quite often the contamination is spread by peoples feet or dogs feet, so having a good look around is critical to locate all the waste. You may need to do it a couple of times if you don’t locate all the residues
Dog Poo depending on the dog breed can vary in complexity and older dogs on medication can produce dog feces that produces a very pungent odor and is more compact and dense than younger dogs.

There have been many people think of ways to make dog poop vanish into thin air or  “faeces”   as they called it
You may remember Jack Blacks movie “Envy” in 2004 where he made poop disappear with a spray called Vapoorizer, however it all came back one day and made a big mess of dog poo in his yard. 🙂

How To Remove Cat Urine From A Car Seat using simple, professional technique

Applying cat urine neutralizr

Hi Craig The Odor Dude Here,
Welcome to my site and please feel free to ask any questions.

We have all done it at some stage, the cat is ill and we rush off to the vet forgetting that cats don’t travel in cars every day so they tend to get nervous and pee inside the car! Then we have to remove the cat urine from the car seat and more often than not the urine goes in deep, which can cause horrible cat urine odor smells for many years to come, if not treated correctly.  Fortunately we come across this issue regularly and have 2 simple solutions for you below, even if the cat urine is old.

OPTION A: Buy a concentrate cat urine neutralizer and apply to the car seat or

OPTION B: Make your own cat urine neutralizer using Craig the Odor Dudes formulation available for sale and apply to the car seat

Lets look at Option A first

We have tested 22 Odor Neutralizers over the years.
In 2005 we came across the X-O Plus Odor Neutralizer and Cleaner and have been recommending it ever since. 2019 it still is our most popular product. We have found XO-Plus to be economical (its a concentrate that dilutes with water) and if used as per their directions, works well on cat pee odor. We believe this to be among the top rated and even in the top 10 cat urine odor removers on the market (apart from ours of course !!)

How to remove Cat urine from a car seat. (also Dog urine)

Step One. Identify the main contamination area

Best Cat Urine Odor Remover  Method.
Hopefully you know where the cat peed so you don’t have to do this important but unappealing process. The best way to find cat urine is by  sniffing the area with your nose, which is a reliable but kinda gross for alot of people. A more effective way is to mix up some of our cat urine remover and spray it onto the seat which you can see in Option B below.
Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 6.25.40 pm

Step Two: Treat The area with a heavy dose of  XO-PLUS+ Cat Urine Neutralizer (approx 1 pint)

Dilute the XO-Plus as per manufacturers instructions with water and apply a heavy application ensuring the product penetrates deep into the fabric and seat.

Step Three: Leave the XO-PLUS Product to soak in approximately 15 minutes minimum

Once it has soaked in dry the top of the seat with towels and leave the car in the sun with the windows down 1/4 inch. Test the odor when dry and re-apply if necessary.
That’s it for XO-PLUS Cat Urine Neutralizer, Awesome product and highly effective on cat urine in a car seat and carpet. Now lets look at the second method for treating cat urine odor.

Option B: Make your own urine neutralizer and apply as below

Step One : Mix up our DIY Homemade Cat Urine Neutralizer as per the instructions in members area.

Step Two: (IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHERE THE CAT URINATED) Put the Home Made Cat urine Odor Killer into a spray bottle and spray onto the carpet and cat seat area and look for white foaming as shown below.
The white foaming on the seat shows exactly where the cat urine odor is located.

Removing cat urine odor from a car

 

Step Three: Treat The area with a heavy dose of neutralizer (approx 1 pint) of formula two.

Once you know where the contamination is mix up 1 quart of Formula One (Use Formula two if the urine is older than 2 weeks) and spray a very heavy application onto the area. Ensure you have towels underneath the seat to catch the residues. This saves having a wet floor as well as wet seats.
Check on progress as you go along. Smell the area you just treated. If you can still smell cat urine then reapply the product and repeat the treatment. Usually 2 applications will be the maximum you will need to do.

Hot Tip
The urine can quite often run into the seat fold and in between the seats, so its important to dose it with a least a pint of my formula.

Step Four Remove the chemical and urine residues

Use a dry towel folded in half as below and push firmly on the seat to absorb some of the cleaning product.  Thats it you are done. Leave the window open slightly and leave to dry.

Once the carpet dries the odor will be gone and if you can still smell it repeat the above steps. Job done!!

Step Four. Removing the residues using towels or a wet vac on your couch.

When the foaming has stopped you can remove the residues with old towels or you can suck them up with a wet vacuum cleaner. I often flush the area with warm water and then suck that up along with the residues. Old towels does just as good a job but you do need a lot of them to get all the residues. If it is a hot summers day then the area will dry quite quickly.
If it is cold and wintery use a lot of towels and then put a dehumidifier in the room to assist in the drying process. This is how to get pee smell out of couch

Summary
So you have learned how to get cat pee smell out of your couch and we wish you success.
Here are some observations from Craig that he has gleaned over the years that may help you.

* Cat Urine is a real problem because it contains a high content of salt which makes the urine odor last for many years to come in carpet, furniture and concrete floors.
* The odor tends to intensify and create odor issues when the humidity is high or the temperature in the room warms up.
* Often over winter time, cat urine odor tends to be quite dull and not a major problem. Then comes the first day of spring and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly the room is filled with that disgusting odor as it heats up..

We have done some really tough urine removal jobs over the years. Some jobs need an Ozone Treatment.

 

 

The durability of cat urine is closely linked to the solution for fixing it.The components of urine such as uric acid and salt combined were the offending ingredients that make the urine odor so long lasting in fabrics, carpet,wood and concrete. I knew if I could find a way to remove the salt and uric acid I would also find the solution to removing the cat urine odor.

After many experimentation I finally came up with a solution that worked instantly on new cat urine and also worked on older cat urine. I perfected my techniques and odor issues turned from a headache into a full time career for me. how to get cat pee smell out of carpet starts with the contaminants i.e uric acid, salt, and other ingredients of cat urine to remove the odor. More often than not some areas will be worse than others. For example if a cat pees consistently in one area then it is likely to smell stronger than areas it just sprays on.

How to get dog pee smell out of carpet

Remove Dog Pee From carpet

For years now we have been answering how to get dog pee smell out of carpet and dog urine odor in carpet is a widespread problem in alot of pet owners homes.

Dog urine if left unchecked in carpet becomes a long term issues and becomes finicky to remove when old.
So lets break down how to get dog pee smell out of your carpet and give you a full proof solution.

We have removed small dog pee smells and odors such as Chihuahua dog urine through to big dogs such as a Great Dane.
No matter how big or small the dog is, one thing is guaranteed. Dog pee smell stinks and the stench is not easy to remove once left for a long period.
Below are some Step By Step Guides for you to help get rid of dog pee smell.

Step One: Soak Up The dog pee first

If you are lucky enough to be around at the time your dog urinates then take some toilet tissue or an old thick towel and place over the urine to soak up as much as you can. Press firmly on the carpet to ensure the urine is sucked up well and make sure you have gloves when touching the affected area. Keep changing the towel so the urine is soaked up throughly and little dog pee remains in the carpet. It can be useful to leave your towel beside the exact spot so when you return to treat the dog pee smell, its easy to find.

Soak up dog pee with towel

Step Two: Treat the urine with a product designed to break down the salt and acids found in dog pee

Use our homemade odor eliminator and pet urine neutralizer. Click here

Or for a ready made product we recommend this one. Click here

Dog urine odor can smell very strong if the stench is left to fester in the carpet. This is caused by the acid, alkaline and several other components bonding together to form a hard crystal and then attaching itself to the carpet substrate.
Treat as soon as you can You can see review of it over here in our Pet Odor Neutralizer Reviews

Dog-pee-odor-remover

Step Three: Carry Out The Treatment

Tip the product onto the affected area as shown below.
Depending on how much pee is there will depend on how much product you need to use. Big dogs put more urine out than little dogs, however we have found smaller dog breeds have much stronger urine that can cause carpet bleaching if left untreated. If you have a problem with dog urine stains then this book is excellent.

Step Four: Soak up the surplus product after 15 minutes as shown below

Pet Pee products need time to work, but you also don’t want to soak the carpet for extended periods either so it is important to soak it up using a wet vac or towels as shown. We find that this product works well if left in the carpet for around 15-30 minutes so the enzymes and salt and acid neutralizers have time to do their work. If you are in a warm climate you still need to get as much of the product out by soaking up the surplus liquid then leave it for  the sun and air to dry the remaining moisture. Its your call really. In winter time, it is critical to get as much of it out as possible. This is the start of how to get dog pee smell out of carpet.

Apply a good douse of pet urine neutralizer

Step Five: Place some plastic wrap on the area and leave for 1-2 hours as shown below

If you are in a warm climate it can be useful to place some plastic wrap over the area for 1-2 hours to assist the product in working. It will slow down the evaporation and ensure the odor neutralizing agents have time to work. It also shows other household members of where the odor contamination is and where to avoid stepping.

Stop product evaporating with plastic

Step Six: Remove Plastic wrap and leave to air dry

Shown below is straight after the plastic wrap is removed. The carpet is still damp as shown and it is at this stage you can do a quick sniff test to see how effective your urine neutralizing treatment has been.  *Note Some products need up to two weeks to work properly so ensure you read the label on the bottle. If you want more instant results then click here for a DIY odor Neutralizer

the finished product!

That’s it, you done, now just relax with a coffee and let the product do its work.All you need do is leave the area to dry now. If its winter time then use a dehumidifier to remove the moisture. A fan won’t be effective as it will not remove moisture from deep within the carpet. You can place a clean folded towel on the area and stand on it. This will assist the drying and help suck up some of the moisture.

Remove Dog Pee From carpet

Q: What If I don’t know where the dog pee is located but I can smell it?

A: If you have dog urine smells in your home and you are unsure of where the odor is coming from then please follow the instructions below. Not all of us see the dog actually pee on the floor and they can be very sneaky, i.e poo or wee behind the lounge, pee in the corner of the room, or urinate in the middle of the carpet and you don’t see it because the urine has dried.

Q How do I find where the dog peed?

A: Locating the source of the dog pee odor is a critical step in how to get rid of dog pee smell in carpet.Look for obvious dark areas of your carpet as shown below.
Dog pee smells can intensify the colors in the carpet even when dry so this is the first step. Take some time to observe the carpet and look for staining. Check behind the furniture, and in the middle of the room. 85% of cases we see the dog has peed in the middle of the room yet the dog owner has missed it. Dogs love to pee in the middle of the carpet for what ever reason we do not know.

Hot Tip Two. Easy Way To Find The Urine
If you are unsure where the urine contamination is you can spray some of our product around and look for white foaming as shown below. This indicates urine is present. One of the many benefits of using our DIY homemade recipe.

Locate-the-source-of-dog-wee


Use your nose and scan the carpet sniffing the obvious areas.

Ok this is not a fun way to do it and using our product as a locator shown above is an easier way for sure but… your nose is a very accurate odor locator and should be used as such. Below shows sniffing a chair suspected of having urine on it from a leaking dog. The best bet is to use a piece of chalk and mark the areas that you detect urine in so it is easy to come back and treat. Place a chalk mark beside the area with an arrow pointing to the contamination.

Once you locate the area then you can treat it as shown above with one of the products we reviewed or if you want to make your own product (the same one we use) then click here.


How to get rid of old dog pee smell?

Quite often a dog owner may miss the fact that their beloved hound has peed on the carpet or behind their favorite chair and the odor does not surface until spring one the weather starts to warm up. Never fear, The Odor Dude is here to help you.
Old dog pee stains can cause years of stench and odor issues depending on the severity of the urine contamination if not treated correctly. The issue can be intensified by the dog urinating in the same area multiple times and this can mean more difficult treatment and removal.

Step One: Douse the old dog pee with our DIY Old Dog pee Remover

Using a healthy amount of pet urine odor neutralizer and douse the area where the old urine is. If you are using our product you should see alot of white foaming. This is a good sign as it means you are exactly on the contamination.

Step Three: Extract the area using a wet vac with at least 50PSI of suction

You can see our Wet Vacuum reviews here which were tested on pet urine stains and odor

Using the wand of your wet vacuum extract out the chemical and repeat the process again until you have extracted as much as you possible can.

If you don’t want to mix up your own odor removal product then there are alot of wonderful dog pee neutralizer products on the market and many that don’t work. We should know as we tested just about all of them over the years.
in 2005 we came across the X-O Plus Odor Neutralizer and Cleaner. It is a great product and I have found a discounted concentrate for you on Amazon (Economical and works well on dog pee odor.) Click here for more details.

Dog Odor Remover Review above (one of 400) and we believe this to be among the top rated and even in the top 10 dog odor removers on the market (apart from ours of course !!)
So once you have located the area pour the dog urine neutralizer on and be generous. Don’t just spray the top of the carpet as this will not penetrate into the all the carpet layers and destroy the acid and salts that are present in dog piss. Give it a generous portion and let the product soak in and do its job.

 


What homemade Urine Neutralizer Product to use (Mix it yourself as shown below)

how to get dog pee smell out of carpet easily

It all started for me in 2002 when I was called out to deal with a dog pee in carpet accident with a neighbor. The dog was old and on medication, so the urine was very strong smelling. The issue was this particular dog had been urinating in the same spot for quite some time, so using just a pet urine neutralizer from the pet shop was not enough to remove the stink. The neighbor was looking for better results and asked me to take care of it. He was also wanting the dog urine smell gone fast as he was hosting a 21st birthday party for his daughter.

There are several products on the market that are very good to use and we review those pet odor neutralizers here  however I needed to develop something more powerful and faster acting so we developed our own product that was mixed onsite prior to treatments.

“Hey Ken, I have done it, The smell has gone. The problem was as you suggested, that I did not know where the main areas of contamination were so I was treating the wrong area. I sprayed the formula around and looked for the foaming as you suggested. (there was a lot of foam by the way) I then applied a heavy dose and left it over night. I repeated that the next day and one day later the odor now is 5% of what is was. It has made such a difference to us and I can not thank you enough. It know it will keep working over the coming days (love how it does this) which gives us peace of mind. Thx!!!

rat Urine Neutralizer


Direction No 1: Locate the source of the rat urine odor

We get asked how to get rid of rat pee smell regularly and a lot of the time people don’t take the time to locate the rat pee in the first instance. It is usually quite easy to locate the rat urine however if you are having trouble trying to locate the source of the rat pee then try this secret. Mix up some of my special formula recipe (Formula two) and spray a light amount onto the wooden framing or dry wall substrate.
IF IT FOAMS WHITE THEN THIS MEANS RAT URINE OR FECES IS PRESENT and you should move to step two which is to neutralize it. Rodent urine be gone!! This applies also if you are wanting to learn how to get rid of mouse urine smell as they have similar principles.

remove-rat-urine-odor

Photo above shows the DIY formula recipe foaming on urine and feces

Direction No 2: Check the area and ensure there are no exposed electrical cables or live sockets in the area you are going to treat. If the cables are completely covered in plastic you will be fine but push them aside if possible from the treatment area.

Rat urine and Feces in attic

 

Also ensure that any liquid you apply is not going to drip through into the room below.
Once you have done that make up a gallon of my rat urine odor removal formulation and treat the area by applying the product.

Direction No Three : Apply The Product
Investigate the sprayed areas and see how much foaming is present. This will indicate the levels of the contamination’s i.e minor equals light foaming and serious is indicated by heavy white foaming. Rats don’t pee large quantities but rodent urine is renown for being strong and pungent. This is the same when you are dealing with mouse urine odor removal.

The ability to remove the rat urine smell relates to what the ceiling or attic space is made from. Urine will penetrate to different levels depending on what the substrates are in the roof. Typically the framing is raw wood which absorbs rat urine quite easily and if the rat urine is over a long period of time then you will need lots of treatments to penetrate in as deep as the urine is and the other issue is the ceiling lining and insulation if there is any.

Photo shows rat urine and feces

The video below gives a step by step guide on what treatments to use.
If the ceiling material is made out of fiberboard, plaster board or gib board or similar then that is also very absorbent and hard to remove. Easier to replace the boards in some cases

In a lot of cases we had to treat the timber 3-4 times with Formula two then once dry, seal it with a very resilient sealer to lock in the residues



How to remove Dead Rat Odor From within a Drywall

Click the image below to learn more

More often than not we get inquiries where people have a dead rat stuck inside a wall. If the rat is behind the Drywall or Plasterboard then the best option is to cut a whole and try to remove the carcass. Not easy if you don’t know where the rat is but if you do know then the best bet is follow instructions below.

Step No One for removing dead rats from within your walls:
Cut a hole in the wall where you believe the rat is (You may need to cut a few holes but they are easy to fix)

Step No Two: Remove the carcass of the rat and safely dispose off. Make sure you wear gloves and a breathing mask

dead_rat_-removed-from-inside-wall

Step No 3: Treat The Area with Formula Two (My secret Odor Removal Product that you can make using 4 simple ingredients)

Spray the area where the rat was located and look for white foaming. If you get white foaming then hammer that spot with the formula several times, then allow to dry. Check for smell after that and repeat if necessary. A good way to test it is to apply formula two and watch for foaming. let it settle for 5 minutes then apply more chemical. If you get the same amount of foaming it means it is a severe contamination and will either require multiple applications over a period of a day or two.

Step No 4: Once smell is treated and removed start to repair the wall
Tools you will need
* Utility Knife
* Drywall Joint Tape
* Drywall Screws
* Taping Knives 14″” and 3 ”
* An electric drill
* 1″ x 1″ dressed piece of wood to use as a backer
* Sanding disc and 220 grit sandpaper
* Quickset Joint Compound
* A square and a measuring tape
* A Pencil

Using Ozone Treatment to remove Rat Urine Odor.

If the rat pee smell is still prevalent after you treat using either method shown above then you could consider a strong and prolonged course of Ozone to remove the odor. Ozone is very effective for odor removal and can boost the whole process plus sterilize your home and serve many hundreds of useful purposes around the home

Here is the machine we use.
rat odor ozone

Enerzen Commercial Ozone Generator Review

Pros: The Enerzen Ozone generator is incredible value and has high output of Ozone enough to do the shock treatment needed to remove and minimize rat urine odor in hard to get to places.
* Although they state 5 grams of Ozone per hour on the specification sheet I believe it outputs more than that and comes with an adjustment knob for lowering the ozone output if it is too strong.
* The method for producing Ozone is via Corona discharge and this is our preferred method for generating Ozone gas as it lasts the longest and requires little or no servicing. (we have tried light bulb ozone machines in the past with limited results)
* Comes with a timer which can be very useful to stop ozone levels building up to much. We have found also that doing Ozone shock treatments is more effective than prolonged. Shock treatments are numerous blasts with a machine rather than leaving it running continuously.

Cons
As a commercial operator most machines do not have a filter on the inlet which means debris will get inside the machine and require cleaning at regular intervals if machine is used alot. we use a simple vacuum cleaner to extract the lint etc.

Summary
Buy It ! Its great for rat urine.
See more ozone Machine Reviews here

What is ozone ?
Ozone is a colorless gas comprised of three atoms of oxygen (O3). It is one of the greatest disinfectants worldwide with 3000 times the germ killing power of Chlorine OG-5000 has variable ozone output permits option of adjustable ozone level from 0-5000mg/ hr. When ozone can be found in contact with mold and mildew, pollen, odors, or other airborne germs, one of those atoms integrates with the pollutants rendering them non-active by oxidation, leaving behind pure clean oxygen. This high output ozone generator (as much as 5000 mg/hr) can assist: reduce/kill levels of airborne bacteria reduce/kill black mold and mildew reduce/kill fungi reduce/kill mold spores reduce/kill smells and viruses.

Best Carpet Drying Fan Blower Reviews

Updated February 2018
Hi its Craig here and welcome to our reviews of the best Carpet Drying Fan Blowers. We have noticed over the years that alot of our web traffic are commercial carpet cleaners looking for help with choosing Ozone Machines  and other associated products such as Carpet Air Moving Fans and Blowers. We review here the best commercial carpet drying fan based on our own experiences with carpet cleaning and odor removal. Having a reliable air mover not only assist with Ozone distribution during odor removal treatments but also when carpets are cleaned and need to be dried or if a flood has occurred and excess water needs to be air dried also. So as you can see the carpet drying fan or blower as they are called is a useful price of equipment to have if you are a commercial operator or if you are a home owner or landlord. Its always useful to read several carpet blower reviews before purchasing and get a unbiased view on what is good and what is not good. We list our opinions and findings below and we hope you enjoy our machine reviews.

Our reviews of the best Air Movers and Carpet Drying Machines


Our Favorite Commercial Unit

Over all we score this Carpet Air Dryer 5/5.
We love the solid construction (see video below for demo), we love the durability and we love the price. Just to be clear if you are a commercial operator that uses drying fans regularly this is the unit for you. If you have a one off application then you may want to consider something more cost effective such as the Conair shown below.
Odorstop is an American company with excellent equipment that is made to last and withstand the knocks a carpet cleaner or flood restoration operators can give them when out in the field or in the van. Their customer service is excellent and they are making some quality cleaning products for commercial carpet cleaners who want mid range products that are affordable and well constructed. These represent incredible value for money and we have no hesitation in rating them at the top of the list. PS Don’t buy from their website as its considerably dearer than the link below

Click here to see more information and save up to 60%

Quality

The manufacturers Odorstop use a very durable method of construction called Roto Moulding for their floor drying fan, which means the plastic casing is in one piece and is very solid. You can see the demo below where the guy stands on it. Most portable carpet dryers have a plastic casing that is split and joined with thin threaded bolts that break apart with vibration or come loose. Carpet Air Blowers usually get knocked about a bit in the back of the van so they need to be made tough to withstand the knocks plus be reliable at the same time so they are cost effective if being used commercially. No one likes call backs.

User Friendly

Easy to use controls and a simple switch for the 3 speed Fan which at full speed will give you unbelievable output and drying abilities. Also suited for pushing air around to improve ventilation and Ozone treatments. The unit is stackable, easy to transport, and is not too heavy and not too light. Just right.

showing quality of the carpet drying machine

Fan Quality

We are very impressed with the machine and in particular the fan . It pushes air for a very long way and has the unique tool of a carpet lock which means you attach the carpet to the machine so it pushes air underneath the carpet making it dry even faster. With out this the carpet will flop over and wont dry as well. We are "blown" away  (sorry could not resist) by the output and quality of ozone. Its a great machine.

Showing the all important feature the carpet clamp. Video shows demo of it below

Our review of the Odorstop OS2800 Air Mover

Summary

Its no doubt these guys are out to impress and take the quality and durability of their floor dryer very seriously. Over the years we have used a number of carpet dryers and the machines varied in quality and price. Its fair to say the price has come down since 2000 as alot of the units are now made in China however the quality on some of them is terrible. Not with Odorstop, these are tough and work brilliantly. With its 3/4HP blower engine the blower can push air out they say to 100 feet. I actually think it is more. The units also can stack

We also love the 30 foot commercial cable (its yellow too!) that gives plenty of coverage and of course the carpet clamp which keeps the carpet above the air when place in the corner of the room or carpet you are drying.

We also are big fans of Odorstops Ozone Machine too

Pros

  • Easy to transport and store
  • Extremely Well built
  • Powerful 3 speed fan
  • Very Economical
  • Does the job beautifully
  • Long lasting (years!!)
  • 30 foot Yellow Power cable

Cons

  • Wish we had this unit years ago, could have saved us heaps of time and money

Client Comment : Amazing Machine!…Stronger fan then I thought it would be, 3 fan speeds made it nice for floating the carpet without flapping . Verified Purchaser by Gavin Green.

 


No 2: Contair FLO800GY Carpet Dryer and Air Blower

carpet air dryer blower

We had to include a good, more economical unit in our review for those that  just need a machine for a one off type application or for the commercial people that don’t use the machine on a day to day basis. From this standpoint the Contair is perfect. It is very inexpensive to buy, has a suitable fan for moving air and drying cleaned carpets very well and at the price it is and a one year warranty its a no brainer to buy it. But if you are a commercial operator then we recommend you invest more and buy the OdorStop Unit shown above.

Over all we score this Ozone Generator 4/5

Quality

The quality of these units is good enough for moderate usage and at the price point these machines are they are well suited for applications such as Kitchen Floods, A fan for moving air around a house in Summer, or where the user is a commercial operator and uses the machine every now and then rater than a Flood Restoration Company as example who would be using it daily.

User Friendly

No problem with any of the controls and the 3 speed fan is easily accessed. The unit comes with a 15 foot power cable which could be classified as a bit short by some. It has a good circuit breaker in it and twin power or daisy chain meaning you can run another machine of this one. We don't recommend this type of usage and prefer a one on one type power source.

Fan Output

The fan is suitable for the price but at 1200 CFM and at only 25 ft reach it is limited compared to the more expensive unit shown above which has 100 ft or more. 25 ft  is considered a bit light for heavy applications or commercial applications. If you are wanting to dry a kitchen or laundry flood then this unit will push the air around just fine, however for under carpet drying we prefer a bigger fan to ensure the carpet is lifted by the air. But at the price point and for uses such as Ozone Treatments it is fine to move air around.

Our review of the Contair FLO800GY Floor Dryer and Air Mover.

REVISED 2017
This is a machine best suited to a one off incident like a laundry flood or for a pushing ozone around in a Ozone Treatment. It is also great for carpet cleaners that want to dry the carpet after a clean. This carpet floor dryer is moderately priced and you definitely get what you pay for but it has a place in the market and has good reviews from the people who purchased it. 
So lets take a look at some of the specification of this air blower and then advise you who it is suitable for.
The air blower is a 1200 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute( which according to the manufacturers provides 25 Feet of air flow)
If you are a home owner or commercial operator and air drying is not  a big part of your business then this unit is perfect for drying a laundry flood, or Kitchen Flood. It is not however suited for placing in the corner of a room and drying UNDER the carpet. The fan is simply not strong enough to lift the carpet. However you will see by the feedback below people who purchased this carpet floor dryer are very happy with the results it provides. Cheaper units like these can be louder than something more expensive but for most people a fan blower noise is something that is not considered to be a problem.
We used to do a lot of work in a Old Peoples Home and having a quiet machine was critical as a lot of our work was in empty rooms at night after a days treatment of urine and feces in the flooring.  To have a noisy engine kept other residents awake.

Click here for more information and pricing

Pros

  • Easy to Carry and stack
  • Very well priced so if it lasts a few years its great value
  • Does the job well for moderate floods and carpet cleaning
  • Durable enough for the purpose described above

Cons

  • Poly construction with split casing which is not as strong as Rota Moulding once peice
  • Power cable could be longer again!! (You will need to use an extension)
  • Fan is too weak for heavy duty commercial jobs
  • Return to Base 1 years warranty and unknown where that is.

Worth the Money!
My uncle’s house was damaged by flooding recently and every store in a 50 mile radius was sold out of fans. I sent him two of these w/ Prime shipping and he used them in his basement and was able to salvage the foundation. Great buy.

Renee B Amazon Verified Purchaser


Another more inexpensive but reliable air mover that we wanted to include in our reviews. Overall we score this unit 3.85/5 and the score is reflected by the fact that its is rated high by a lot of commercial users that view the machine as a if it lasts 2 seasons they have got their moneys worth. For some one who is not using the unit every day this machine is perfect also and it then gets down to warranty. This unit is also marked as a "Mini" so it does have a place to play in smaller rooms and lofts etc . Weighing in at only 11 1bs  it is easily transported and handled and the body seems very well constructed although it is  a two piece shell.

Our review of the Odorstop 2500 Ozone Generator Another great unit from the Odorstop Stable and this one caught our eye due to the ease of servicing the Corona Discharge Plates and the ability to buy spares as shown below, The parts are easy to install and are very well priced.

  • Price: This unit is dearer than the others and the reason for this is it’s a commercial grade machine with the ability to service and replace parts. Most Ozone machines use a Corona Discharge Method where a current is passed between metal plates and the air passing through is oxidized and turns into O3 gas. The plates get build up on them of contaminants and this can affect the Ozone Gas Output This machine allows you to easily remove the Metal Plates and replcae them inexpensively with new ones thus making the unit last for years. The commercial operators or landlords will be interested in this unit as it will last longer than the cheaper ones due to the ability to be serviced and have the Ozone parts replaced. We think for some one working in a business using this machine, this is essential.
  • Design: The machine also has an air inlet filter (albeit thin) but at least it is something to try to keep the dust out. The units are quite pricey but for a commercial operator these come highly recommended for the ability to replace the ceramic plates. With Ozone machines you have two choices really. Buy something cheaper like the Enerzen and when it fails throw it away or invest more and get a commercial unit like this one and service it to make it last for 10 years or more. The machines are well constructed, solidly built and  weighing in at 9.5 pounds she is quite heavy, but if you are a commercial guy weight is good!. It means the machine will be well constructed and have solid parts which is what we need for durability. Odorstop also do a great range of blowers as well as commercial ozone machines Click here for more information

Overall we score this unit 3/5

Our Review of The Shop-Vac 1032000 Mighty Mini Air Mover.

The Shop-Vac economy unit or Mini as they like to call it has a under powered fan for commercial use  and this machine is most likely suited to someone who just wants to move air within a house. People are buying these because of the price, as in they are really cheap but there is an old saying written in 1824 by John Ruskin that is very true. He said in summary “Its unwise to pay too much but its worse to pay too little” When you pay to much all you lose is money, when you pay to little you sometimes lose everything because the Air Blower you buy can’t do the job you need”  I improvised about the air blower but you get my point.

They have sold 400 of these on Amazon so clearly there is  a need in the market for a cheaper 3 speed air blower, however I can’t see how these would dry carpet with the small fan so in fact they are a glorified house fan made to look like a blower shape to try to tap into the commercial market.

Fro my stand point I would not buy one for our application but you may have a use that they are perfect for.

Pros

  • Cheap
  • Can be stacked and is light to carry
  • Can be daisy chained but we don't recommend this
  • Established Company with 1 year warranty

Cons

  • 10 ft Power Cable
  • Fan is too small for commercial use

Our review of the OdorStop OS1000 Carpet Dryer and Air Mover
Summary

This is just one of the many machines from the “stable” from OdorStop. We have been very impressed by these guys and the attention to detail with the manufacturing of all their machines.  OdorStop are carpet cleaners and ex carpet cleaners so they understand what is needed when evaluating and using a good carpet dryer and air blower machine. They have alot of experience in Odor removal as well as the manufacturing process.  An example is their engines are thermally protected to ensure they have enough air circulating to keep them cool. Most of the issues with smaller air movers are the fans overheating. No so in this case.
The units are lightweight also and weighing in at 12 lbs they are easily moved and stacked also.
The blower is an incredible 1/5HP and 1400 RPM which is fantastic for  a compact unit and totally suitable for drying carpets after cleaning and for small flood work plus in tight corners where using  a big machine is not suited. Overall we love this little machine and it has a very important place in the market for all commercial operators. Ideal for ceilings and other areas where space is limited.

Pros

  • We love the attention to detail and the durability of this machine. The Roto Moulding is unbreakable
  • Solidly constructed throughout
  • Excellent fan Output for such a small unit
  • Very Economical
  • Ideal for areas that are narrow or when you need to lift a unit into a ceiling space, and other narrow areas where a heavy machine is too hard to use

Cons

  • 15ft power cord

How I made over $100,000 PA Removing Pet Urine Odors

How to remove Dog Odor In a car

craig-transparantHi Its Craig The Odor Dude here. This article details how rescuing a black cat led to a great business opportunity and how you can benefit from this too.

Introduction
It was back in 2002 when we heard about a cat who was on her way to the Vets to be put down by the owner. My wife raced in at the last moment to grab her off death row. Being rescued at the last minute led to a fantastic business opportunity that went on to earn us $100K that year. The rescued cats name was Chrissie and we renamed her to Maria. She was a loving caring cat but she came with a few “issues”. She peed everywhere!

Maria The Cat

Cat Urine Everywhere
Within a few weeks we discovered that Maria had a serious piddling problem. She peed inside our house at every opportunity including peeing on a bowl of fruit one day that was eaten unknowingly. When the fruit reached the bottom of the bowl I wondered what the yellow sticky stuff was in the bowl. mmmmmm  Maria %(&&**!!!!!!.
Maria peed inside cupboards, in the corners of the living room, on stairs, on curtains, on my shoes, my clothes, even on me once as I was going down the stairs. It was a big job cleaning up her mess and I was trying every product on the market to help remove the smell with little success. Eventually I made my own product (which I can teach you how to do it)  and ended up cleaning and removing Maria’s urine odor

How to remove dog odor from your car

remove dog poo odor on car seat

Hi Its Craig The Odor Dude here

Dog Odor in a vehicle is a common occurrence for dog owners and the smell of a dog can be very stubborn to remove particularly in cloth seats and vehicle carpets.
Different dogs produce different types of odors also and we over the years we have come across most of them.
So this article serves to help you with removing dog odor from your car.
First of all lets look at the different types of dog odor.
How to remove Dog Odor In a car

1. The really strong sour dog butt smell:
The reason for this is dogs have an anal gland that on occasions excretes a foul smelling oil that leaks onto fabrics and fibres and is accentuated when the dog rubs its backside when the area gets itchy . This is the worst kind of dog odor possible and is very tricky to remove due to the oily nature of the contaminant. It is prominent in certain breeds of dogs such as older Dachshunds, Corgis and many others. Poor diet can also contribute to these glands emitting odor.
2. Wet Fur Dog Smell
Most dogs produce oil in their dog hair as a natural protectorate against the elements. Once again certain dog breeds are stronger smelling than others and diet has a place to play in it as well. Different dog shampoos also can impact on oil production and of course alot of dogs do not get washed correctly and therefore have strong smelling dog hair. This is the more common dog odor we run into with dog owners vehicles, and is easier to remove than the anal gland odor. See below for the solution.
3. Dog Slobber Odor
Dog slobber is best summed up by the Medicine.net people here. If a dog has poor teeth this can lead to saliva leaking from the mouth, commonly known as drooling. Drool can also have a very unpleasant odor particularly from old dogs and is often found on windows and on seats. This is very easily cleaned with just a simple detergent and a wet vac for the seats and the window just needs a good quality spray cleaner and a warm damp rag with warm water. Wipe it off and dry thoroughly.
See our wet vac reviews here
Or you could mix up some of our odor neutralizer and apply same to the affected area.
4. Bad Breath Odor
Another smell that can be unpleasant in a car is bad dog breath. You may have been called “Dog Breath” by your partner in the morning and some dogs have a very strong breath. Not much you can do here apart from wind the windows down and get the dog to a dentists for some plaque removal.
5. The Old Poo In Dog Hair Trick
You know the old saying. It sticks like %$#@ to a blanket. Well so does dog poo to dog hair and this can be very unpleasant if some gets onto your car seats or vehicle carpet.

Solutions for removing the smells.

Strong dog smell caused by the anal glands is usually focused on the most popular spots the dog sits in the car so is easy to find. Because oil is the base cause of the odor the technique for removal involves our odor removal formula being injected into the carpet and then extracted after very hot water is also injected.

The formula and heat is essential to break down the oil and remove the contaminants.

Spray the areas with our odor remover
and then apply warm water on top of the formula.
Extract out the residues and repeat until extraction water runs clear. EASY PEASY
