New Home, Awful Stench

You just finished signing the papers, the home is now yours! You rush over, pull in the driveway and excitedly use your key for the very first time and walk through the front door…and almost gag at the pet odor that virtually attacks you as you step in to the house. How could you not have noticed the overwhelming stench of cat urine, wet dog and general feces when you walked through the house the first few times. How could the former homeowners not have mentioned that they never learned how to remove pet odor permanently? The truth is, you are not the first new homeowner in this situation and you won’t be the last.

Many homeowners either do not care properly for their pets and the inevitable accidents or are just unaware that there is a product available that actually eliminates the pet odor rather than just covering it with perfumes. In fact, the former homeowners may have thought they had eliminated the odor when they scrubbed urine stains with carpet cleaner and sprayed deodorizing concoctions throughout the home. All they actually accomplished was a moving around of urine crystals and a masking of the pet odor with perfumes.

The good news is that you have the power to completely eliminate pet odors from your new home without adding a harsh chemical scent or working your fingers to the bone. The first step is to spray Biocide Systems ClO2 Liquid Shocker on any obvious stains, being sure to follow label directions carefully and blot rather than rub the stain. Other dog odor remover products may help lift the urine stain but cannot eliminate the embedded urine and crystals that often form but the ClO2 Liquid Shocker can. Once you have lifted the stains you can see, use a room Shocker pouch in each room of the home to eliminate the pet odor from every surface in the house, even though you would not expect to have absorbed the smell. The Chlorine Dioxide vapors enclosed in the room Shocker are able to penetrate every porous surface including walls, floors, and fabrics to get rid of the stench for good.

How to Remove Pet Odors

Have you tried every odor eliminator on the market and your house still smells like a kennel? Have you scrubbed every surface that has been urinated, defecated, and vomited on by your dog or cat but you still get a whiff of the offensive odor every once in a while? Do you worry that your friends and family are hesitant to visit your home because you haven’t figured out how to remove pet odors effectively?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, visit immediately for information and guidance on how to actually remove the odor rather than just masking or perfuming the smell. Learn about the ecologically friendly and newly applicable uses of chlorine dioxide to penetrate every porous surface in your home and oxidize and remove the odor. Read testimonials from pet owners, smokers, and homeowners who have purchased a home from a pet owner or smoker, and the amazing results they achieved through the use of the room Shocker system. The chlorine dioxide vapors are perfectly safe for humans and pets and do not leave the institutional disinfectant smell that chlorine cleaners do.

Pet odors are considered some of the toughest odors to remove but they are no match for the room Shocker. Your home will no longer smell like a kennel but a fresh , inviting place that your friends and family will be happy to visit.

Why Does This Rug Still Smell Like Cat Urine?

If you have cats, chances are that he or she has peed on, or worse sprayed, many of the fabrics and surfaces in your home. Cat urine has the potential to imbed itself into the carpet, furniture, curtains, and other surfaces of your home and linger there for months, even years, if not properly treated. Cat pee odor removal is tougher than other animal odors because when cat urine dries, it forms crystals that adhere to surfaces so many cleaning techniques end up pushing those crystals deeper into the carpet or furniture rather than removing them. If your cat has “sprayed” an area to mark its territory, the odor-causing protein in the urine is even more highly concentrated so the odor is more highly concentrated as well. Ugh. Is there a cat pee odor removal system that actually works or do they all simply mask the odor until the crystals are irritated again and the stench rises anew?

Happily, there is a solution and it will work whether the cat urine if fresh or has been embedded in a sofa or curtain for years: Biocide Systems Avanflex Liquid ClO2 and room Shocker will work in tandem to eliminate car urine odor from every surface and fabric in your home. The Avanflex Liquid ClO2 solution will remove the embedded crystals from the fabrics in your home. Generously spray the affected area, wait 5 to 15 minutes, then blot, don’t rub, the area. The next step is to activate the room Shocker; one unit for each room of the house is recommended to completely eliminate odors. The room Shocker does not require much work from you, simply follow the instructions and leave the room undisturbed for 12 to 36 hours, depending on the severity of the urine infestation.

After the allotted time, reenter a room that you might not recognize because you do not immediately wrinkle your nose to block the stench. It’s true, cat pee odor removal can be achieved and Biocide Systems can help you do it.

Enjoy Your Dog but Not the Wet Dog Smell?

Your dog has returned from an impromptu romp around the neighborhood and has evidently been snuggling with a skunk…or is that the smell of a long-dead raccoon? Luckily you caught him before he attempted to rub himself clean on the couch, which is not an effective dog odor remover, and put him in the bathtub. After repeated shampooing and vigorous scrubbing, your best friend has now regained his position as a member of the family and is free to roam the house at will. But what is that smell? You may have thought that the solution to get rid of pet odor was a warm, soapy bath but now the lingering smell of whatever your dog rolled in has mingled with that awful wet dog smell to make your living room smell like a musty home for decaying animals. Is there a dog odor remover system that actually works to get rid of pet odor of this magnitude?

Amazingly enough, Biocide Systems offers a solution to this particular problem with the room Shocker line of products. The chlorine dioxide solution that is released will penetrate all porous surfaces, from wood to fabric, and kills all odor. This is not another product that masks or perfumes the room so that the odor returns within a couple of days. The potent chlorine dioxide gas eliminates the odor for permanent relief from the stench.

Do not panic, however, because this is a perfectly safe application system that does not leave a disinfectant odor behind to advertise the fact that your dog has a nasty habit of rolling in rotting carcasses. The room Shocker uses oxygen to break up the odor and the chlorine dioxide vapors are safe for both children and pets.

You can get rid of pet odor with painstaking cleaning and airing of fabrics, carpets, and wall coverings and wait for the smell to return or you can follow the simple room Shocker directions, walk away, and return to an odor-free home.
