Urea-Z Urine Odor Remover F.A.Q.
Is Urea-Z Safe?
YES! Urea-Z is safe to use where you have animals, people, marine life, and plants! The little microbes inside the solution only eat the Urea crystal that makes urine smell bad, that’s it! The microbes are asleep in the Urea-Z concentrate bottles they come in, and they don’t wake up until they are added to water. This allows a longer shelf life for the microbes when you are not using them!
How Does Urea-Z Work?
Urea-Z consists of billions of microbes designed to eat urea, a chemical found in urine, that produces the pungent ammonia smell. The microbes ingest the urea crystals out of the urine and convert them into water and carbon dioxide (an odorless gas). These microbes are colonizing microbes, which means that every twenty minutes they double their numbers, speeding up the process of converting the urea crystal into water and carbon dioxide, removing the unwanted smell faster and faster each time it is used! Also, these microbes stay alive for anywhere from days to weeks depending on urea crystals available for consumption. Therefore if you spray a contaminated area the microbes will keep eating and go dormant, then wake back up and eat again if the area is re-contaminated!
How long does Urea-Z take to remove the smell?
There is a minty-fresh smell to Urea-Z that instantly controls the urine smell. Then the microbes will be eating the urea crystals, as well as doubling in size to colonize the problem area and speed up the process of removing the cause of the unwanted smell. This process can take anywhere from 3-5 days to remove the smell depending on the amount of saturation from the urine and how much Urea-Z is used in the area, to keep the smell from returning.
The beautiful part of Urea-Z is that once you begin to use product consistently and find the proper timing of re-spraying the areas due to the amount of urine that is deposited in this area, you won’t have to endure that urine smell again because the microbes will wake up and eat the urea crystals if the area is contaminated between the Urea-Z spraying sessions!
How Often Should I Spray Urea-Z on the Smelly Areas?
For the first two weeks, you are building up the colony of microbe soldiers to eat the urea crystals. So it is important to treat the areas daily for 3-5 days. Make sure to spray the urine areas generously with Urea-Z. Once the microbes have had a chance to multiply over and over again, you will only need to spray the problem areas ever two or three weeks, depending on how often it is re-contaminated. The beauty of Urea-Z is that when the area is contaminated again, the microbes wake up again and start eating the urea crystals right away!
