Pet Stain and Odour Removing
An odour (commonly referred to as a smell) is caused by one or more volatilized chemical; compounds, generally at a very low concentration, that humans or other animals perceive by the sense of olfaction. However, malodour, stench, reek, and stink are used specifically to describe unpleasant odours. Carpets and other floor coverings are susceptible to a variety of odours including those caused by flood, fire, cooking, pets, cigarettes, etc. Though deodorants can mask the bad odour, the only way to get an odour free house you will need the services of an odour removal company who will meticulously get the smell out the first time. There are different methods of removing the odours. These methods include vacuum cleaning and drying the carpets and rugs.
The Rug Guru use proper sanitizer in order to eliminate and neutralise any types of odour(s). The sense of smell gives rise to the perception of odour sensation depends on the concentration (number of molecules) available to the olfactory receptors. A single odorant stimulus type is typically recognized by multiple receptors, and different odorants are recognized by combinations of receptors, the patterns of neuron signals helping to identify the smell.
Common odours that people are used to, such as their own body odour, are less noticeable to individuals than external or uncommon odours. This is due to habituation; after continuous odour exposure, the sense of smell fatigues quickly, but recovers rapidly after the stimulus is removed. Odours can change due to environmental conditions, for example odours tend to be more distinguishable in cool dry air. The ability to identify odours varies among people and decreases with age.
The human sense of smell is a primary factor in the sensation of comfort. Olfaction as a sensory system brings awareness of the presence of airborne chemicals. Some inhaled chemicals are volatile compounds that act as a stimulus, triggering unwanted reactions such as nose, eye, and throat irritation. Perception of odour and of irritation is unique to each person, and varies over because of physical conditions or memory of past exposures to similar chemicals. A person's specific threshold before an odour becomes a nuisance depends also on the frequency, concentration, and duration of an odour.
The indoor odour may have higher concentrations in confined indoor environments due to restricted infiltration of fresh air, as compared to the outdoor environment; leading to greater potential for toxic health exposures from a variety of chemical compounds. Health effects of odour are traced to the sensation of an odour or the odourant itself. Health effects and symptoms vary, including eye, nose, or throat irritation, cough, chest tightness, drowsiness, and mood change; all of which decrease as an odour ceases. Odours may also trigger illnesses such as asthma, depression, stress induced illness, or hypersensitivity. Ability to perform tasks may decrease, and other social/behavioral changes may occur.
Pet Stain Removal:
Oriental Rugs have always been considered art in your home and are very much desired. The Persian, Turkish, Indian and other oriental carpets are sometimes costly and are quite fragile. These rugs also regular cleaning and maintenance, otherwise you expensive rug will lose its appeal. Carpets are very porous and dust and moisture can easily settle. It gets stained very easily and if not wiped off immediately it will become permanent and spoil the beauty of the rug. One of the most common culprits which cause stains is pets. Pet stain removal from the carpets can take all the skills of the carpet stain removal experts. Pet stain removal at The Rug Guru uses the time tested methods of cleaning the carpets by hand to ensure optimum oriental Carpet Cleaning. Special decontaminates and deodorizes that will not harm the rugs are used to ensure the best result. The longer the stain material remains in the carpet, the higher the chance of permanent colour change, even if all the original stain material is removed. Immediately blotting (not rubbing) the stain material as soon as possible will help reduce the chances of permanent colour change. Artificial food colouring stains are generally considered permanent stains such as Gatorade, Listerine, Soda, etc. These will be removed by us.
Stain removal is the process of removing a mark or spot left by one substance on a specific surface. A solvent or detergent is generally used to conduct stain removal and many of these are available over the counter if a stain has "set", it has become chemically bonded to the material that it has stained, and cannot be removed without damaging the material itself. It is therefore important to avoid setting stains that one wants to remove. This can be done by avoiding heat (by not pressing or ironing the stain), sponging stained materials as quickly as possible, using the correct solvent (some solvents will act as catalysts on certain substances and cause the stain to set more quickly), and avoiding rubbing the stain. Most stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. The solvent to use depends from two factors: the agent that is causing the stain, and the material that has been stained. Different solvents will dissolve different stains, and the application of some solvents is limited by the fact that they not only dissolve the stain, but also dissolve the material that is stained as well.
Another factor in stain removal is the fact that stains can sometimes comprise two separate staining agents, which require separate forms of removal. Also of concern is the colour of the material that is stained. Some stain removal agents will not only dissolve the stain, but will dissolve the dye that is used to colour the material.
Household bleach generally removes a stain's colour, without dissolving the stain itself. Acetone is good for removing some glues, nail polish, rubber cement, and grease. Nail polish remover may contain acetone; however for general use it is best to obtain bottled acetone from a hardware store. It can be diluted with water.
Surfactants (detergents) are molecules that have one polar end and one non-polar end and can be used for stain removal. They can help to emulsify compounds that are not usually soluble in water. For example, if you put oil in water, they tend to stay separated. If you put oil, detergent, and water together and shake them up, then you get a mixture that can help to remove stains.
Lemon juice, containing citric acid, is a bleaching can effectively remove stains. Its action can be accelerated by exposing the stain to sunlight whilst it is saturated with the juice.
This can be used for pet stains and out of doors.
