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.

Bergen County Special Services, Technical Schools

After researching many air purification solutions on the market today, we chose the Odorox hydroxyl processors for the myriad of areas where we host our students. Many of our special services were open and operational during the first few weeks of the pandemic. The Odorox Pyure hydroxyls provided a sense of comfort for our staff and parents while mitigating the risk of exposure and spread of the virus.

We have been regularly using it in addition to our enhanced disinfection protocols as we are determined to provide a safe, secure, clean, and healthy environment as best we can during a pandemic.

Our administration and maintenance staff are thrilled with the performance and are looking for even more ways to utilize the technology.

Respectfully,

Hi

Thank you for suggesting the BOSS Hydroxyl generating system to Nick and me.

Our home, which had an indoor pool that we filled in and converted to a Great Room, is currently for sale. The chlorine smell in the styrofoam ceiling from the 30+ years that the pool was enclosed has turned out to be an 'issue' for prospective buyers.

Nick and I were really at a loss on how to remove the smell, short of replacing 1500 sq. ft. of ceiling ourselves, at a cost of approximately $10,000.

We used your BOSS system as instructed. You said it could take 4-5 days to remove the smell, but in no time at all (2 days) the chlorine smell was completely and permanently removed. We are amazed, and so grateful for this elegant solution.

We can show our house now without any worries. Our Great Room now truly smells 'great'.

We would recommend your company's systems without reservation to anyone in a similar situation.

I wish you and Odorox every success in the commercial and residential world.

Cheers-

Nicholas Maxheleau and Elizabeth Winter
