How to Get Rid of Urine Smells

Eliminate Urine Smell Caused By Pets (Cats & Dogs) and People with an Odorox/Pyure Hydroxyl Processor

To understand how to get rid of eliminate urine smell/odor, it’s important to first understand the makeup of urine and feces and what causes them to have such a strong and offensive odors in the first place. While both are primarily water, the rest of their content will vary and is what will cause the familiar odors associated with these products. Urine is made of up dissolved organic solids, with urea being more than half of these solids. This is an odorless and colorless solid that is used by our body to get rid of ammonia. We produce ammonia as part of metabolizing proteins. Feces is made of bacterial biomass, undigested matter, nitrogen-containing compounds, and other proteins.

There are a variety of chemicals that will contribute to the smell of human waste. These can be split up into three separate groups for identifications, which makes understanding them a little easier. The three groups are: nitrogen-containing compounds, sulfur-containing compounds, and fatty acids. Out of all three, feces is going to have a higher concentration of fatty acids.

The most common type of fatty acids that is found in human feces is ethanoic, or Acetic acid. This is more commonly known as vinegar. While there is a lot of this acid in human feces, it actually doesn’t contribute a lot to the odor. Longer chain fatty acids, such as Valeric acid, or pentanoic acid, and butanoic, or butyric acid, are going to produce the odor. Butanoic acid is the acid that gives human vomit its unpleasant odor. Valeric acid, or pentanoic acid doesn’t smell much better, and when they are combined, they create an odor that is reminiscent of a barn. Para-cresol, another compound, also plays a role in the creation of this odor and is one main reason that feces have such a distinct and unpleasant smell.

While human feces has a lot of fatty acids, it’s the sulfur-containing compounds that cause so much of the bad odor we associate with feces. That’s because it takes a lot less of this compound for our noses to detect it, so we notice the smell of these compounds a lot sooner than we would notice the smell from fatty acids. Both methane thiol and hydrogen sulfide contain sulfur and are going to be easily recognizable by people, even when they are not very highly concentrated. Finally, nitrogen-containing compounds will smell different, depending on how concentrated they are. At low concentrations, skatole and indole can smell very floral, which is why they are used in some perfumes and are commonly found in flowers. Scientists believe that this is because different concentrations will bind to olfactory receptions in our nose, allowing us to smell the same compound differently, depending on how concentrated it is.

Urine has a lot of nitrogen-containing compounds, which can all be affected by a person’s diet. Eating different foods, such as asparagus, can have a major impact on the odor of your urine. While urea is odorless, it will break down quickly into other compounds that contain nitrogen, such as Trimethylamine and ammonia. Together they can create a pungent and fishy smell. As the urea continues to break down, the compounds are continually created, resulting in a worse smell the longer that the urine is allowed to sit, and leading many people to wonder how to eliminate the smell ofurine.

Understanding the science behind why your feces and your urine smell is important so that you can learn how to better neutralize these chemicals and destroy the odor that they create. By fully understanding what causes bad odors, scientists and other professionals are better able to understand how to get rid of the smell of feces and urine. The best way is to use hydroxyl processors from OdoroxAir/Pyure that are specifically made to eliminate any organic compounds in the air. When used as the first line of defense against feces and urine odors, you can easily remove combat the odors left behind. Using hydroxyl processors in any space where there is urine or feces is a great way to improve air quality and make it easier for people to breathe, which is why they are such a great idea in public restrooms and home bathrooms, and they would be ideal in portable toilets, as well.

Major Canadian Insurance Adjuster takes notice of Hydroxyl Benefits

Recently I've had the chance to see the hydroxyl machines in action in two claims that we worked on together and I have to tell you how impressed I am that these machines actually do what they claim.

First there was the liability claim at the 15,000 square foot office building in Cambridge that was under construction. Our insured was doing some work in the building and accidentally started a small fire. Smoke went throughout the building and since the drywall was all new it had not been sealed or painted yet. Although there was very little soot deposit, odour was the bigger problem. We were faced with the real possibility of having to replace the drywall at a cost well over $150,000. Even to Kilz paint it would have been in excessive of $80,000. There was also an exposure related to income loss if there were delays in the completion of the building.

The hydroxyl machines that you recommended and used on this claim did an amazing job of removing the entire smoke odour to everyone's satisfaction and in a mere seven days and at a cost of under $30,000! The construction workers were even able to continue to work while the machines were running.

The second claim involved a diner inside a local bus terminal. There was a small electrical fire in the storage room. The sprinklers put the fire out but smoke went throughout the storage and kitchen areas. Again odour was the bigger problem once the water clean-up was done. PDS put in a hydroxyl machine for two days to eliminate the smoke odour. A few weeks later I met with our insured who commented that not only did the smoke odour disappear but so had the odour of the grease. He was very pleased with our claims service and PDS.

I certainly will be asking other contractors to use this equipment in other claims involving odours. I'm confident that it works really well and the potential for saving money is huge.

PuroClean of Tampa Bay has had the opportunity to work with a hydroxyl generator that we purchased from Tom McArdle. We have used it with fires, mold damage, and smoke odor removal.

The technology has really added to our "tool set" and has worked very successfully to improve the outcomes of our emergency cleanups.

But, even more, it has been a privilege to work with Tom and Michael McArdle. They are tremendously responsive and supportive to our business needs. Time and time again they have gone "over and above" to help us get the job done more quickly with exceptional results. Soon after we purchased our first Odorox generator, we used it in a condo where one of the owners had been a heavy smoker for over 15 years. Unfortunately, the owner had painted over the nicotine stains and the odor on their walls, thereby, locking in the smoke odor. When our one machine could not clean it, Tom and Mike brought 3 more machines to get rid of the smoke odor completely. In addition, they came out daily to the condo to check how it was working and kept following up to see what else they could do.

Both Mike and Tom are exceptional business colleagues. We look forward to working with them, and their technology, long into the future. If any customers would like to contact us to discuss the product in more detail, Ali and I would be happy to speak with potential clients.
