Cats and dogs make great pets, but they can also make even bigger messes. Pet urine stains and smells can destroy fabrics and furniture. There are several cleaners to remove stains and odors, but everyone who owns a pet know they don’t always work. Genesis 950 works with water to get into the stain. When absorbed by the stain, the mixture of Genesis 950 and water actually works to alter the stain’s composition and break the structural bond of the stain. Once the bond is broken, the stain can be lifted and removed. Only by breaking the bond of the stain will you remove both the actual stain and the smell. If you do not do this, you are just masking it. Genesis 950 will break the bonds of stains and remove both the stain AND the smell. In addition, Genesis 950 is a deodorize and it also will kill any germs or bacteria associated with the stain. But the best part is Genesis 950 does not have the harsh toxins or chemicals that other household cleaners have. So it won’t harm your carpet, your pet . . . or the environment.

1. Clean stained area (furniture, carpet or rug) of any loose debris.

2. In a bucket, mix 1/3 part Genesis 950 to 2/3 parts warm water

3. Using a sponge, absorb the mixture of Genesis 950 and water

4. Squeeze excess mixture out of the sponge

5. With the sponge, wipe down any stained or dirtied area of the furniture, carpet or rug – do not wipe in a scrubbing manner, just gently wipe and let moisture from sponge absorb into the stain

6. Let the area you have wiped absorb the mixture – Genesis 950 is designed to work with water to soak into the stain and break the bonds of the stain, which then lift the stain from the surface. This is what will remove the stain and the smell.

7. After about 2 minutes the stain will be loosened and can be lifted from the surface

8. Empty your bucket and fill with straight water once you have cleaned all the dirty spots on your furniture, carpet or rug

9. Use a sponge with straight water to wipe off the cleaned areas

10. Allow furniture, carpet or rug to dry.

For larger stains, and a more professional look, clean your entire carpet using Genesis 950 in any steam cleaner. Use the amount recommended by the steam cleaner manufacturer as you would any other cleaner they suggest. Steam cleaning carpeting with Genesis 950 will make your entire carpet look and smell professionally cleaned. After cleaning the carpet using a steam cleaner and Genesis 950, be sure to go over the area when done with straight water. When you do this, you will see all the dirt and grim that the previously applied Genesis 950 took out of the carpet.

With the Holiday Season upon us, this is the time to focus on getting the house ready. Everyone wants their home to look it’s best in preparation for family gatherings and out of town visitors. Perhaps the biggest task is getting the carpet cleaned. Surely summer has taken it’s toll with kids running in and out of the house. Fall is not easy on carpets either. Especially if you have dogs going outside and coming back in with muddy, wet paws. Well, you can clean your carpets better then the professionals, and for a fraction of the cost. All you need is Genesis 950, water and a steam cleaner.

Naturally, the simplest solution is to have the entire carpet cleaned. While spot cleaning is great for removing small stains, a full thorough carpet cleaning brings out the best of your home. The first thing that comes to mind is hiring an outside carpet service. This is both time consuming and expensive. On top of that, you have to schedule your day around when they are coming.

Now, with Genesis 950, you no longer have to hire someone to make your home look professionally cleaned. Genesis 950 is one of the most powerful cleaners on the market, and one of the most reasonably priced.

One of the problems with professional cleaners is you do not know what they are cleaning with. Are there harsh toxins and chemicals? Is there bleach or ammonia? Is it worth the extra money for deodorizer? Is the cleaning solution they are using really helpful? Are they just saturating your carpet with water? There are a lot of questions you might have about hiring a cleaner. Likewise, there are just as many questions you might have about Genesis 950.

So what is Genesis 950? Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner and degreaser that works like no other product. First of all, it is safe. There are no bleaches or ammonia. There are no harsh toxins. It is a green cleaner and works with water to break the bonds of stains. Genesis 950, when mixed with water, is absorbed by stains. When the stain has absorbed the mixture, the bonds of that stain are broken and the stain is lifted. When this happens the stain can be removed with clean water. In the event that you are using Genesis 950 in a steam cleaner, you will be amazed at how it cleans and disgusted by what comes out of your carpet. When Genesis 950 is applied using a steam cleaner, the mixture of water and 950 adheres to every carpet fiber. As you complete the cleaning of the carpet, that mixture is hard at work pulling every bit of dirt and grime off the fibers.

When you use Genesis 950 in a steam cleaner, it is extremely important that after you have gone over the carpet, you empty the Genesis 950 and water mixture from the machine and refill it with clean water. Go over everything you have steam cleaned a second time. Be prepared to change your water several times when cleaning the carpet the second time. Genesis 950 will pull so much dirt and grime out of your carpet that the clean water in the machine will be black in a matter of moments.

You will literally be amazed at how well Genesis 950 works, and completely disgusted as to what you have pulled out of your carpet. Your carpets will look completely new. Don’t be surprised if your guests ask when you got new carpet. In addition to cleaning your carpet, Genesis 950 is a deodorizer. It will leave your carpet smelling fresh. Another added bonus is Genesis 950 kills germs and bacteria.

Professional carpet cleaning can cost hundreds of dollars. In this economy, saving money is more important then ever. Genesis 950 will save you quite a bit of money in cleaning your carpets. Even if you don’t own a steam cleaner and need to rent one, the cost of cleaning your own carpets will still be less then that of hiring a professional. Genesis 950 comes in several sizes ranging from Pints to 5 gallon cubes. For steam cleaning, we recommend the 1 gallon size which costs $42.00 (shipping & handling included). With this size, you will be able to clean an average home. Genesis 950 is a concentrate and the suggested mixing ration is 1 part Genesis 950 to 7 parts water. You should even have some left over for after the holidays to clean up the spilled wine! (Yes, it does clean wine stains too.)

How To Remove Pet Stains From Carpet And Upholstery

BEST CARPET CLEANER FOR PET STAINS

Dog Urine On carpet
What child doesn’t want a puppy for Christmas? And what puppy doesn’t want a loving home for Christmas? It can be a perfect match and the ultimate Christmas present. However too many times what seems like a great idea turns out to be problematic. Every year, hundreds of puppies are given as Christmas gifts and then returned or placed in a shelter. There are many reasons for this. Puppies require attention, adjustment to scheduling and unexpected expenses. If you are planning on getting a puppy, these are some things to take into consideration, and they are things the pet owner can proactively adjust. In some cases, puppies are returned because of accidents in the house. This too is something that can be controlled by the owner. In many cases, improper cleaning techniques only promote a puppy going to the bathroom in the house. This is something that can be corrected by properly cleaning pet stains. When pet stains are cleaned correctly, it can actual prevent a new puppy from going to the bathroom in the house.
puppy christmas giftThe first thing to understand about dogs is that they urinate based on instinct as well as training. With a new puppy, it is important to establish a schedule. Take the puppy outside frequently to encourage the dog to go to the bathroom outside. You may notice as you take the dog outside, he/she will do a lot of sniffing. This is natural instinct kicking in. Dogs tend to urinate in the same spot based on scent. They tend to urinate in the same spot they have previously gone. As you continue to take your new puppy outside, try to guide your dog to the spot where they have previously gone to the bathroom. As time progresses, you will be able to wait longer periods of time when taking your dog outside. Eventually, this pattern will help the dog identify the area outside as the area where they can go to the bathroom.
Naturally, with a puppy, there will be accidents in the house. This should be expected with a new puppy. While you can take measures to prevent such accidents, including frequent outdoor visits, or placing the puppy in an area where an accident would not impact the house, don’t be upset when an accident happens on the carpet or a rug.
When an accident occurs on the carpet, it is essential that you clean the area properly. As stated previously, dogs urinate based on instinct. If they smell the odor of urine, they are likely to continue to go to the bathroom in that spot until the urine scent is completely removed. If an accident occurs, the first time may very well be an accident. Sometimes this happens with puppies because they become overly excited, do not have bladder control, or have not grown accustomed to the potty schedule. This is to be expected. To prevent it from becoming a habit, clean the urine stain properly.

PET STAINS – WHAT NOT TO DO

There are countless products available for pet stain removal. There are also endless online “recipes” and “DIY pet stain removers.” Unfortunately, many of these products are not as effective as they claim to be. And nearly EVERY Do It Yourself Pet Stain Remover offers the WORST thing you can possible do to clean pet stains. 
 
Vinegar pet Stain Remover
DO NOT USE VINEGAR FOR

PET STAINS

  • VINEGAR – Vinegar is the primary ingredient in almost every Do It Yourself pet stain remover recipe. As a natural cleaner, vinegar works to break down stains due to it’s acidic base. Distilled white vinegar has a pH level of 2.4. Vinegar has a distinct acidic smell. Dog urine has an acidic base with a pH level typically around 6.5. Like vinegar, pet urine has a distinct acidic odor. Because vinegar and urine share this acidic base, as well as an acidic odor, the puppy’s instincts will likely kick in. A dog can not differentiate the scent of vinegar from that of their urine. Because of this, if vinegar is used to clean pet stains from carpet, the dog will likely be encouraged to urinate in that spot. Vinegar is easily the WORST thing you can use to clean pet stains. Even the Human Society acknowledges that vinegar & ammonia based cleaners can encourage pets to continue urinating in the spot where they were applied.
  • ENZYMES –  Enzymatic cleaners dominate the aisles of every pet store. Many claim to be environmentally friendly, which is a factor in their popularity. However a closer look at the Safety Data Sheets can reveal the products contain some of the most dangerous chemicals such as 2-Butoxyethanol – a horrid chemical which can cause skeletal defects and weight loss in mammals. The last thing you want to do is place toxic chemicals on your carpet where it can affect your pets or your children. Aside from the health risks of some enzymes, there is also a specific science to the way enzymes work. Through the process, the idea is that an enzyme will interact with urine to promote that is breaks down. However for enzymes to work correctly, a lot of factors need to be just right. Temperature, acidity of the urine, age of the enzymes and the diet of the dog are just a few factors that can prevent enzymes from working correctly. Often, people find that the enzymes may appear to have worked, only to find that in a few days either the stain reappears or the odor becomes overwhelming. This is often as a result of proteins being broken down and settling back into the carpet, or the enzyme not actually having the power to clean into the padding of the carpet. 
  • HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS – In line with the DIY pet stain remover recipes are those that call for various household cleaners. Many homemade pet stain removal recipes call for laundry detergent or dish soap. No! Just don’t do it! Soap based cleaners work on the principal of attraction. Dirt, dust and other staining agents, including urine, are pulled toward the soap. When used in carpet, as the soap travels downward, it takes the stains with it. When this happens, what might have been a simple surface stain now becomes embedded in the padding. As you rinse, you might notice the surface becomes clean, but in time, everything that has seeped into the padding will resurface. This then results in “phantom stains” that come back after you have cleaned the area. There are several other problems soap based cleaners present. They can clog the pores of carpet, making the carpet feel rigid. Soap also does not have the power to kill the odor – especially if it seeps downward into the padding. Again, you are only intensifying the urge for your new puppy to urinate in that spot again. Other household cleaners present other problems. Some can actually spread the stain, leaving a grayish residue on the surface of light colored carpets. Oxidizing agents can cause discoloration to carpets. When a carpet becomes discolored, this can not be easily reversed.

HOW TO CLEAN PET STAINS

 
They key to preventing your puppy from going to the bathroom in the house is proper cleaning. because dogs are drawn to urinate in spots where they have previously gone, it is imperative to not just remove the visible stain, but also to completely remove the urine odor.

Genesis 950 All Purpose Cleaner
Genesis 950 is a green, all purpose surfactant based cleaner. Instead of using soaps or hazardous chemicals, Genesis 950 relies on water as the key ingredient. Sold in concentrated form, water is added upon use. When Genesis 950 and water interact with a stain, Genesis 950 breaks down the bonds of a stain. Once the bonds of a stain are broken, the stain becomes water soluble. Solubility allows for the stain to lose adherence and be flushed from the surface. In the event that pet urine has seeped into the padding, Genesis 950 can be used in a carpet cleaning machine to effectively break down any odor causing stains in the padding. In addition to breaking down and removing stains, Genesis 950 also has the power to kill odor causing bacteria. As the odor is removed, the likelihood of your dog continuing to urinate on the carpet is reduced.
 
There are two methods for removing pet stains with Genesis 950. The first is by spot cleaning. Spot cleaning is most suitable for surface stains. These types of stains include when the accident is number 2 or if your puppy got sick on the carpet. To spot clean these stains, use Genesis 950 in a spray bottle mixed with water. The recommended ratio is 1/3 part Genesis 950 to 2/3 parts water. This recommendation works great for cleaning multiple messes from pet stains to kitchen cleaning. Keeping a spray bottle with this ratio in the cleaning cabinet makes you ready for any situation.

Step by Step Directions for spot cleaning pet stains
Spot cleaning with Genesis 950 is easy. Simply spray the solution mixed with water on the stain. Be sure to allow the stain to be thoroughly saturated. Allow the solution to sit for several minutes. Once the stain has absorbed the solution, it should be able to be wiped away fairly easy. If after wiping up the stain, there is still some left behind, reapply the cleaning solution and let sit a little longer before wiping. Once the stain has been removed, blot with fresh water to rinse. When complete, let the area dry.

Pet stains removed with Genesis 950
While spot cleaning is effective for surface stains, it is NOT an acceptable means to clean pet urine. Pet urine, being a liquid, travels down ward. Often, it ends up in the padding, which because of it’s consistency, absorbs liquid such as urine, like a sponge. When urine odor is an issue, spot cleaning the surface will NOT remove the urine in the padding. Spraying deodorizes on the area will also not have any impact on the padding. As long as that urine odor is in the padding, the likelihood of your dog peeing there will remain very high. To properly remove pet urine and pet urine odor from carpet, it MUST be done with a machine. 
 
A carpet cleaning machine allows for solution to be distributed below the carpet surface. As this is where the odor settles, this is very important. A carpet cleaning machine also has the power to extract the stains, sediment and urine that has been trapped in the padding. When Genesis 950 is used in a carpet cleaning machine, the solution gets into the padding, breaks down not only the pet stains, but also the dirt and dust. Be sure to thoroughly go over the entire carpet with the Genesis 950/water mixture, ensuring that the carpet is thoroughly saturated. Once the carpeted has been treated in this manner, allow it to sit for anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. This will give the solution the time needed to properly break down stains and kill odor causing bacteria. After this time has elapsed, fill your carpet cleaning machine with ONLY fresh water. Slowly go over all areas that have been initially cleaned using the machine. Doing this will flush everything that has been broken down out of the carpet. At first, the return water may come back black. If so, continue to rinse until you can get the return water as clear as possible. Once you are satisfied with the rinsing, allow the carpet to dry. The results will be a clean, odor free carpet. You will likely also notice the carpet feels softer – this is in part to Genesis 950 being soap free.
 
If a new puppy is going to be part of your Christmas, be prepared for a little bit of disruption. One of the biggest reasons puppies end up unwanted after the Holidays is due to training issues. However many of these issues can be resolved quite simply by properly training and cleaning up after your pet. If your puppy is having accidents in the house, it might not be because of the puppy. Instead, it might be because of how you are cleaning up after the puppy. Are you using products that encourage urination? Are you using products that do not remove the odor? Before you get rid of that puppy, try getting rid of the cleaning products you are using. Keeping your puppy and your family happy might be as simple as finding the right way to remove pet stains.
