How To Use PetLab Urine Stain & Odour Remover

PROF E.N ZYME CLEANING TIPS:

  • No matter what surface (hard or soft) is being treated it is always recommended to test¬†first in an inconspicuous area before proceeding with full treatment.
  • PetLab¬†is not a spray and wipe solution it requires sufficient dwell time to do its job.
  • NEVER use other cleaners or chemicals at the same time as PetLab ‚ÄĒ this will reduce its effectiveness. If other chemicals have been previously used, flush out first with water.

    How To Remove Urine Odours From Artificial Turf

    *Deep Treatment

    This is usually for the initial deep treatment of heavily soiled outdoor surfaces using the combined power of PetLab enzyme stain and odour remover and the natural disinfectant in a first-of-its-kind proprietary 2-step treatment process.

    If the surface is not heavily soiled, you can eliminate the odour faster. You don't need to complete the 2-day process, simply prepare the area like you would on day 2.

    Step 1 ‚Äď Day 1

    1) Prepare surface area before commencing treatment by removing all visible surface debris.

    2) Recommended to use an artificial turf rake to unlock embedded debris. Push the rake against the turf pile so that the grass blades are returned to an upright position, allowing liquids to seep deep down.

    3) Apply the enzyme solution generously so that it seeps through to the base where the source of the odour is.

    4) Allow to dwell and air dry naturally. 

    Step 2 ‚Äď Day 2

    1) Water down the area again with clean tap water only to remove any surface residue resulting from the enzymatic biological action.

    2) Prepare surface area before commencing treatment by removing all visible surface debris. Recommended to use an artificial turf rake.

    3) Apply the Outdoor/Turf 3-in-1 solution generously over the area to ensure deep down penetration.

    4) Allow to dwell and air dry naturally.

    Note 1: Recommended to apply at sunset being the coolest time of day, to avoid premature evaporation.

    Note 2: Recommended to cover the treated surface with a non porous tarp to keep the area as moist as possible for as long as possible.

      *On-going maintenance:

      Note: Frequency of maintenance treatments depends on how many pets use the area as their primary toilet. 

      In warm/hot seasons - fortnightly maintenance is recommended.

      In cooler seasons - 4-6 weeks maintenance is recommended.

      Regular watering down between treatments is recommended.

      *Application Methods:

      • Larger Surface Areas:¬†(40+ sq meters). Use¬†2L Super Concentrate Bottle which attaches¬†conveniently onto your garden hose.

      How To Remove Urine Stains & Odours From Mattresses

      Note: Water or chemical based cleaners will not break down the odour causing uric acid crystals resulting in the odour returning after treatment. Only a bio-enzymatic solution like the one found in PetLab will successfully break down and remove uric acid crystals permanently.

      Tips for removing Urine accidents from mattresses:

      1. soak up excess urine on the mattress by blotting/dabing up the excess urine using absorbent microfibre cloths or paper towels.
      2. Saturate the urine-affected area with PetLab Stain & Odour Remover and ensure it is wet enough to seep deep into affected area/s.
      3. Allow to air dry. The biological removal of the urine deposits takes place during this drying time.
      4. When dry, spray a small amount of water over the area and blot it up with a microfibre cloth or paper towel to remove any remaining residue.

        Note: We also recommend disinfecting the area after the enzyme treatment to remove any remaining germs and bacteria. The PetLab Healthy Habitat formula is a natural pet-safe disinfectant that will disinfect the area and also enhance the odour control potency for an even cleaner and odour free result.

        How To Remove Urine Stains & Odours From Hardwood Floors

        Note: The longer urine sits on your hardwood floors the more damage it can cause. Urine left untreated on a hardwood floor for a longer period of time will literally burn the timber causing an irreversible stain. So, it’s crucial to start cleaning as soon as it’s spotted to prevent the acid from burning or discolouring the surface.

        Steps to clean and remove urine stains and odours from hardwood floors:

        1. Blot up the urine deposit with paper towels or absorbent microfibre cloth.
        2. Spray PetLab stain & odour remover liberally to saturate the area.
        3. Hardwood floors need a long dwell time for effective results to take place so it’s important to slow down evaporation. To achieve this you can cover the soiled surface with a plastic covering (tarp) to keep it as moist as possible for as long as possible.
        4. Remove plastic after 30 minutes or more and blot dry with paper towels.
        5. Apply PetLab over the area again, only this time do not cover. Leave to air dry and then mop or wipe down the floor surface again with water only.
        6. Repeat these steps until satisfied the odour is removed.

        Note: We also recommend disinfecting the area after the enzyme treatment to remove any remaining germs and bacteria. The PetLab Healthy Habitat formula is a natural pet-safe disinfectant that will disinfect the area and also enhance the odour control potency for an even cleaner and odour free result.

        4. Allow 15-20 minutes dwell time for effective results to take place.

        Removing Urine Odour From Tile Grout

        Grout between tiles is very porous and absorbs and traps urine deposits which can result in a lingering odour even after treating the tiled surface. 

        1. Using a squeeze bottle, apply the enzyme solution along the affected grout lines and allow it to seep deep into the grout. 
        2. Let it dwell for a few hours and then mop or wipe away any residue

        Note: We also recommend disinfecting the area after the enzyme treatment to remove any remaining germs and bacteria. The PetLab Healthy Habitat formula is a natural pet-safe disinfectant that will disinfect the area and also enhance the odour control potency for an even cleaner and odour free result.

        Remove Urine Stains From Leather Or Suede

        Tips for removing urine stains from leather, suede or microfiber:

        How to apply:

        1. Test first for colour fastness in an inconspicuous place.
        2. Apply PetLab using the light spray selection on the trigger, as opposed to stream. 
        3. Ensure the enzyme solution makes contact with all the urine to be 100% successful. It must have access to where the urine has gone.
        4. Allow to air dry.
        5. Take a damp cloth and wipe away any sticky residue. 
        6. For Suede: Once dry, fluff up the suede with a dry towel.

        Treating Urine Stains & Odour on Concrete, Brick Paving, and Unsealed surfaces

        Note: These surfaces are porous, resulting in urine deposits being absorbed deep into the flooring. Therefore it is crucial to treat urine-affected area/s on these surfaces immediately. If Left untreated for long periods it can result in discolouration and/or burn marks which in most cases are irreversible. Treating with PetLab will however remove lingering odours. 

        How to apply:

        1. Spray the entire surface liberally with PetLab Stain & Odour solution
        2. Cover with a non-porous plastic covering (tarp) for at least two to three hours to slow down the drying time by delaying evaporation and allow the enzyme solution to penetrate the surface.
        3. Blot the floor dry with paper towels or microfibre cloth. For larger outdoor areas, rinse with a garden hose or watering can.
        4. Repeat Steps 2, 3 and 4 as required with two hours between applications until urine odour is removed.
        5. For indoor surfaces, lightly spray the surface with water to remove any residue. Outside areas can be rinsed with water and left to air dry.

        Note: We also recommend disinfecting the area after the enzyme treatment. The PetLab Plus Outdoor/Turf concentrate is a natural pet-safe disinfectant that will disinfect the area and also enhance the odour control potency for an even cleaner and odour free result.
