Carpet deodorisers are perfect for removing unpleasant or musky smells from your carpets.
If you have pets, accident prone users, or an old carpet, you may need to deodorize your carpet.
Whether you have pets, or you really love an old carpet that came from your parents or grandparents, an unpleasant odour can be a really serious issue. Lack of effective carpet fibre cleaning will cause debris and dirt build-up, causing the carpet to smell especially if there is a food/vomit bacteria or urine crystal buildup. Smoke smells can be persistent.
Using just a deodoriser will essentially just mask the smell. If the polluting substance is still present, the carpet will not look clean, and may contribute to health issues such as eye irritation or headaches.
A carpet cleaning chemical, and proper cleaning process, will remove dirt, stains, bacteria. Some carpet chemicals have a mild fragrance, thats when a deodoriser added to it will immediately have an attractive smell to really notice the improvement! Bacteria neutralising chemicals like OdabanE usually have a quaternary ammonium compound that neutralises most of odour causing bacteria and leaves long lasting pleasant fragrance. Where disinfection is also required, use Biosan

While all products are slightly different most can be used by:
Sprayed on: use a spray bottle to apply to the affected area and agitate with a cloth. Always test in an inconspicuous spot with a white cloth to test for colour fastness - some colours may fade or change during cleaning. Some products can be left and absorbed by the carpet and some require rinsing. See directions for individual products.
If using a Carpet extractor, you can add to the chemical tank. It is recommended that chemicals are presprayed in diluted format and left 5-10 minutes before a carpet extractor agitates the chemical and fibres, and rinses them out. Carpet extractors vary in complexity from basic spray and wands that go over the surface, to powered brushes and sprays that really agitate carpet fibres to release dirt.
