With so many products on the store shelf, you probably are asking yourself which one works the best? To answer that question, it is vital you understand there are two different concerns: Stains and odor. You might find that those products that work well removing stains do not quite work well in removing odors. Products that contain enzymes, specifically designed to use urine as a food source work well in removing pet odor. Products that contain a reducing agent such as oxygen bleach or peroxide work best on stains. A two part solution is often best as one part partially destroys the effectiveness of the other.

Urine stains and pet odor can at times be difficult to get out because the urine has probably made it through the carpet and soaked into the sponge pad under the carpet. Trying to treat this from the top of the carpet usually involves applying enough of the solution on the carpet to get through to the pad without spreading it too much. The wood or concrete sub floor will also absorb a large amount of urine as well. As a last resort, large pet stains on carpet are often repaired by disposing of the carpet and coating the sub floor.

Cat urine odor is a lot worse than dog urine because of the pheromones and markers present in urine. These strong scents mark the territory and are designed to last. However, large quantity’s of dog urine will often create a much bigger problem. If pet urine has been allowed to dwell for a long time, it will often discolor the carpet, giving stains a fluorescent effect.

If the stain is fresh and small enough, you may have a few possibilities: You may use a suitable pet urine stain remover according to the directions on the container. If the stain is larger and has been there a long while it may be better to call your local Professional Carpet Cleaner in Folsom who specializes in removal of pet odors and stains.

The There Second Rule goes something like this: if you retrieve food dropped on the floor within three or five seconds, it won’t yet be contaminated.

Wishful thinking. Or an excuse not to throw otherwise good food away.

Let’s look at the facts. Disease-causing bacteria (known as pathogenic bacteria) and other microorganisms (such as viruses) are potentially everywhere and can be remarkably virulent. So logically, it would be an easy task for a microorganism to attach itself to a surface, especially to a moist piece of food.

A 2007 study from a team at Clemson University, tested the five-second rule on tile, wood and carpet. They contaminated the three surfaces with a high level of Salmonella Typhimurium and looked at the rate in which the bacteria transferred to bread and sausages, over a period of 24 hours.

Only to find, the amount of time food spends on the floor makes little difference to the transfer of bacteria. 

They found the most significant variable in the transfer rates from all three surfaces was not the length of time it had contact with the food. The three testing times (five, 30 or 60 seconds) made little difference in the rate of bacterial transfer.

The length of time the bacteria had been on the surface prior to contact with the food mattered more. Four hours after contamination, the same amount of bacteria remained on the carpet, while rates of bacteria on the tile and wood were slightly lower.

But another study, on bacteria in the manufacturing environment, found that the longer the food was exposed to a contaminated surface, the more bacteria it accumulated. As did an investigation on transfer between meat surfaces.

Overall, a comprehensive review on bacterial attachment to surfaces concluded that moisture, pressure and contact time increased the likelihood of bacterial transfer.

Next time you drop something on your carpets here in Roseville and contemplating the Three Second Rule, think about the findings of Microbiologist Kris Griffon.
