Considerations When Buying Pet Odor Neutralizer
Last Updated February 2019
There are many reasons why having an odor neutralizer on hand is helpful. Unlike air fresheners, they work by getting rid of nasty odors at their source. Air fresheners simply cover up the smell temporarily, while a pet odor neutralizer does exactly what it claims, it neutralizes the odor itself.
With so many pet odor neutralizer products on the market to choose from, how does one know where to start? Choosing the best pet odor neutralizer may depend on a few factors.
Choosing a pet odor eliminator with all-natural ingredients is recommended. These may range from commercial and industrial grade odor erasers to household-strength formulas.
Many products have natural plant extracts like oranges, which work to neutralize odors. Others work like sponges to absorb nasty odors.
Some pet odor neutralizers even contain very specific bacteria, which may work to engulf the area and remove the odor. Many contain enzymes that eat away at the chemical bonds of the odor molecules themselves. This is how odor gets removed from its source, instead of just masking it.
Along the same line of a product having natural ingredients, it is also necessary that it has been guaranteed safe for being around children and your pets of course. If a deodorizer contains harsh chemicals, your fabric materials may be ruined when you spray it onto them.
Ease of Application
No one wants to have to struggle to remove pet stains and odors. This is why one major consideration in your purchase should be how easy it is to apply. Spray formulations are the easiest. Others may need to be dissolved in a bucket of water, which is not as easy to work with.
Won’t Damage Fabric Surfaces
The finest pet odor neutralizer doesn’t contain bleach or harsh chemicals that can damage fabric surfaces like carpets, upholstery and rugs. Using something that has bleach in it can leave a blotchy appearance in the carpeting.
