Frequently Asked Questions
Simple, we’re better and here is why
We don’t use generalist, we use specialist: The strains of beneficial enzyme producing bacteria that we use are all specifically selected for their ability to quickly and effectively digest organics such as urine, feces and vomit.
We are more powerful: Quantitatively, we have yet to test a competitor’s product that contains a higher bacteria count (CFU) than ours on a milliliter per millilitre level. The higher bacteria count the more effective it is.
Where we source from: The bacteria that we use comes from a USDA food grade facility. This ensures purity and consistency so you can expect the same results every time.
Our secret Sause: The proprietary bio-surfactant package that we use aids the bacteria’s performance helping to make its cleaning ability unmatched.
The beneficial bacteria in every bottle produce enzymes. Enzymes act like scissors when they come into contact with organic material such as urine, feces or vomit. Different enzymes break down different things. They cut the molecular chains into bite size pieces for the bacteria to digest. They convert these organics into H2O (water) and CO2 (carbon dioxide). Almost all stain and odor eliminators work the same way. It is safe and effective way to deal with life's messes.

Gravity, that's why! The different ingredients will settle out and separate given enough time. Shaking the bottle or jug makes sure that everything is mixed properly. This will help get the most out of every drop!
2 years. Every bottle, jug and pail comes with a small round label with a Julian date. The number refers to the date of manufacturing. Example: 02020 means it was produced on the 20th day of 2020. This means it is best before January 20th 2022.
Ideally not as extreme temperatures can harm the beneficial bacteria. If it does freeze, allow it to thaw at room temperature and shake well before using it again.

Unsealed Concrete: The results may vary on unsealed concrete because of how porous it is. The stains and odors are absorbed into the concrete making it more difficult to remove.

Let stand for 1 to 2 hours then clean up any remaining residue. Repeat the process if needed.

Pour 4 to 6 oz. down any smelly drain and run warm water for 5 seconds. Try to avoid using the drain for as long as possible. This will give it time to break down what every is causing the four odors.
Spray a liberal amount along the walls of smelly garbage cans and let sit.
Remove as much urine as possible. The less urine there is, the less you’ll have to deep clean. If the puddle was made on carpet or furniture, we recommend blotting the area with an absorbent paper towel. This won’t get up all of the urine, but it will leave less of it behind for you to have to treat later. Spray a liberal amount on the spot and let sit for approximately 10 minutes. Blot up any remaining residue. Reapply if needed.
Upon initial contact the malodor package hold the nasty smell molecules in place preventing them from reaching your nose. This combined with the light fragrance provide instant relief while the beneficial bacteria work to digest the urine, vomit or feces that cause the foul odors thus eliminating them all together.
This will depend on what you are using it for. A 32 oz. sprayer will be more than enough for cleaning the odd pet accident. If you are housebreaking a pet or dealing with pet markings then a 1 gallon jug is a good place to start. Pet daycares and groomers will benefit from the cost savings of 5 gallon pails.

No, the extreme heat will kill the living bacteria rendering it ineffective. We would recommend using it as a pre or post treatment to seam cleaning.
Animals use urine to mark their territory. The smell alerts other animals to their presence. This is a natural instinct but can be very frustrating to pet owners. Cleaning the area will make it less interesting to other animals but it will not fully deter them from marking the same spot. This is a behavioral issue that must be dealt with separately.
Yes, it will work the exact same way on pet and human stains and odors.
A black light is an excellent way of identifying stains and thus pinpointing where a specific odor might be coming from. Urine will appear as a bright glow. You may still see a faint glow under the black light after the stain has visually disapeared. What you are seeing is not the urine, but the now dormant beneficial bacteria that were used to remove the stain its self. After vacuuming the area the glow will fade away. This bacteria is completely harmless to people and pets.
