When faced with an odour problem related to animals, several types of products are available on the market to eliminate these unpleasant odours. Most products against odours are formulated with enzymes or bacteria. Enzymes are small bacteria that absorb odour particles, then digest them and make them disappear. In turn, bacteria degrade the proteins into smaller particles.
The SOS Odours range of products differs from other products available on the market because they are based on odour neutralizers. They contain no enzyme or bacterium. Created with neutralizers targeting specific odour problems, the SOS Odours products actually bind themselves to the malodorous molecule, and transform it into a new molecule that releases a fragrant scent. In addition to being easy to use and always effective, here are some facts that distinguish odour neutralizers from enzymes.
1. ODOUR NEUTRALIZERS HAVE A LONGER LIFE SPAN
If you have ever purchased an enzyme-based product against bad odours, you may have noticed that it had an expiration date. As these products contain bacteria, which are living organisms, it’s important to use the product before the bacteria die. It may also happen that even at the time of purchase, some of the bacteria are already dead, and thus the product is a little less effective. On the other hand, odour neutralizers have a life span of three years and don’t lose any efficiency over time.
2. ODOUR NEUTRALIZERS DO NOT REQUIRE WATER TO BE EFFECTIVE
To work properly, enzyme-based products require an aqueous medium. This condition can lead to problems, especially in the case of water-sensitive materials, such as wooden floors, mattresses, sofas, etc. Indeed, water leaking between the wooden planks of your floor can make it swell and water on a mattress or sofa can cause mold. The odour neutralizers don’t require water to do their work and those used to treat wooden floors, mattresses or sofas also contain alcohol. The latter evaporates soon after application and cannot damage a wooden floor or create an environment conducive to mold.
3. ODOUR NEUTRALIZERS CAN PENETRATE ANY MATERIAL
Odours can be absorbed by several different materials. Among these, some, such as concrete, are formed of very tightly packed particles. As the spaces are too small, the enzymes (large particles) cannot pass through and reach the source of the odour problem. On the other hand, odour neutralizers can penetrate any surface since they are made of very small particles. Therefore, products formulated with odour neutralizers are always effective, regardless of the surface to be treated. The enzyme- and bacteria-based products can, in many cases, require multiple applications without solving the odour problem completely.
4. ODOUR NEUTRALIZERS START WORKING AS SOON AS THEY COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE SOURCE OF THE ODOUR
Most enzyme-based products require several applications before showing any results. As mentioned above, enzymes are living organisms and upon application, not all of them are still alive. As well, you need to consider the bacteria’s digestion period. Products containing odour neutralizers start working as soon as they are applied and only require a second application when the smell is embedded deep inside the material.
