Why you need to use an Enzymatic Odour Killer

Comments Off on Why you need to use an Enzymatic Odour Killer

What is an enzyme? Enzymes speed up chemical reactions. Most of them are proteins and can be found within living organisms, inside cells. They can make chemical reactions that would normally take millions of years, occur in just milliseconds.

SAFE4 odour killer, is an enzymatic formula including different enzymes which is ideal for odour removal. Designed for faeces and urine as these are particularly problematic in the animal industry, very hard to remove using conventional odour removers.

Urine is composed of 95% water, other matter such as urea, uric acid, sodium, potassium, creatinine and other waste. Uric acid is the main problem when using a conventional cleaner. Uric acid, being made up of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms isn’t soluble in water. It will biodegrade very slowly into ammonia and carbondioxide. New urine can appear multiple times a day, our enzymatic odour killer speeds up this biodegradation in seconds removing the uric acid and the smell, the same happens with faeces.

Typical enzymes can be categorized into four main groups:

Proteases: break down protein-based soils including blood, urine, food, faeces, wine and other beverages. Lipases: break down fat molecules like oils and grease. Amylases: break down starch molecules like eggs, sugars, sauces, ice cream, gravy. Cellulases: are used to soften fabric and restore colour to fibres made up of cellulose material. They also remove particulate soil and reduce fabric greying and pilling.

Their applications in living organisms have been applied to industries such as the biofuel industry, biological detergents, brewing industry, culinary uses, dairy industry, food processing, molecular biology, paper industry. personal care, starch industry and of course in the animal Biosecurity industry, our own.

Our Safe4 Enzymatic Odour Killer

It is widely used across Zoos in the UK particularly in primate areas as these areas have a significant problem with odour. Why is it so important to use an enzyme odour killer? Well, for those of you familiar with taking care of mammals from cats to primates and many others, they like to mark their territory by spraying urine or dropping faeces and this marking of their territory is an activity that is seen as a challenging behaviour within their species and enclosure.

Other members are likely to contest this behaviour with their own marking of territory. This begins a chain reaction in which fairly soon, what was an odour free living environment for mammals will become a territory marking competition that not only makes for a foul environment for the animals in it but also for the humans taking care of them. If you remove the odour of territory marking right away this stops the chain reaction because other mammals in the enclosure will not be able to identify the smells that irritate them and instinctively make them want to mark their own territory. This is true in kennels, catteries and other types of areas that include mammals.

  • This is why hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and/or baking soda initially appear to be effective at eliminating the problem.

Traditional household or carpet cleaners will ‘deal with’ most the water-soluble components and aspects of pet urine.

But the reality is that the problem was never really solved because the uric acid crystals were never eliminated to begin with! Our odour killer will solve the problem entirely by getting rid of the molecules that cause the smell and it will also leave an after use pleasant cherry fragrance.

Our odour killer is Non-Toxic, Non-Staining, Non-tainting, Non-corrosive, Non-irritant, Biodegradable, Does NOT contain Phenols, Aldehydes or alcohol. All of the above means that you can use it on carpets, all types of flooring, in your garden and on flowers even if you have artificial grass or even artificial flowers.
