Carpet Odors



Does your carpet have pet odors? Is cat urine making your whole home smell? Did the professional cleaning you just paid for not get rid of pet odors? Non-toxic Nok-Out can remove those odors easily!  You can remove those hard to clean pet odors go away safely and easily.

Nok-Out is a TRUE DEODORANT, has very low toxicity, does not create harmful by-products, is non-carcinogenic (does not cause cancer,) non-mutagenic (organisms cannot mutate or become immune to destruction), non-allergenic, and is environmentally friendly. This product eliminates organic and inorganic sources of odor pollution through a process of 'oxidization'. Oxidizers must have direct contact with the odor source to do their work for you.

Do you know where all the smelly spots are located in your carpet? If you are unsure and urine is the problem, use a black light in total darkness to determine the location of all carpet stains before proceeding to treat the carpet.


Nok-Out has a pH of 8.5, and works best in an alkaline environment. If acidic cleaning products such as vinegar have been used previously, you should neutralize that acid by spraying Club Soda or a mild baking soda solution (1 tsp baking soda/1 pint water) to the carpet before applying Nok-Out to the area. Allow this solution to dry before continuing the odor removal procedures. This step will neutralize any acids left behind by other cleaners on your carpet and allow Nok-Out to work most efficiently and effectively.

Before you use your vacuum cleaner to clean away all pet hair, or other small debris that may be present in the carpet/rug, spray the filter in the vacuum with Nok-Out, saturating the pad well.

Where animal, urine, body secretions or other spills have occurred, and you suspect that penetration has reached the sub flooring, or with a long-standing problem, it is best to lift the carpet and replace that section of pad, or treat the pad. Use Nok-Out on the hard surface full strength and completely wet the backing of the carpet. Cat urine, being one of the most difficult problems to de-contaminate must be treated by Nok-Out at the SOURCE OF THE ODOR to destroy the odorous bacteria as well as the ammonia salts. A syringe may be used to inject Nok-Out (every 6-8 inches) should you not want to lift the carpet. It may not prove as effective, but is an alternative.

It is not recommended to pour full strength Nok-Out or SNiPER directly on your carpet.  If you choose to take this approach, dilute by at least 3 (water) to 1 (Nok-Out).  This will allow plenty of fluid to penetrate the fibers, the mat and get down to the pad and flooring below that, while still haveing plenty of power to remove odors.

Note: It is always recommended when treating an area, to test in an inconspicuous place - especially when you are using the product full strength.


When using Nok-Out in a carpet-cleaning machine, add 8-16 ounces to the reservoir, then add enough water to total one gallon (128 ounces). Push the carpet shampooer forward while spraying, but DO NOT VACUUM UP THE CLEANING FLUID YET.  Spray the entire carpet first, and wait for  10 - 20 minutes to allow Nok-Out to penetrate deeply into the fibers of the carpet, as well as the matting, the pad and floor substrate underneath.

After the waiting time has passed, begin the extracting process by pulling the shampooer BACKWARD. This pulls all liquid back into the cleaning tank.

When steam cleaning, add 8-16 ounces of Nok-Out to the reservoir, then add enough water to total one gallon (128 ounces) of cleaning solution.

Dry quickly by using overhead ceiling fans, floor fans, turning the AC/Heating fan on (not automatic) or opening windows.

If a second application should be necessary, simply repeat this procedure. Again, dry quickly.


Begin by spraying the carpet backing thoroughly - all over the backing. Allow to stay moist for 5 minutes or more. Wipe away excess moisture.

Turn the grass carpet over, and spray lightly, all over the carpet.

Put 8 - 12oz of Nok-Out into the tank of the carpet cleaner; add enough water to total one gallon. Mix thoroughly.

Begin the cleaning process as above, by pushing the carpet cleaner over the carpet. Do NOT pull back on the cleaner.

Allow to stay wet for up to 5 minutes.

It is wise to also turn overhead fans on, or place carpet outside for quicker drying.


Note! Be sure to test the carpet for colorfastness before doing the entire surface. It would also prudent to assure yourself that the shampooer doesn’t harm the grass by scrubbing too hard. You will also confirm that that no problems exist between the dyes used in the grass and Nok-Out. While Nok-Out is known to be non-staining and non-bleaching, it is sensible to do so.
