FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What works. What doesn't. And why.
Why will this kit work better than others I have read about or seen?
Just Rite has been in the professional carpet cleaning business 40 years.

Our reputation for quality, integrity, and customer satisfaction is unsurpassed in the industry.
We know what works; and we know what doesn't work. Without hesitation we will stake our reputation on this superb kit.
Why three products instead of one?
Because you are dealing with several elements. It's not just the urea in the carpet, pad and sub-floor. You also have bacteria, pigment (stain) and urine salt crystals that form between the carpet and pad. All these elements have to be addressed, and the single spray products that abound on TV and the internet fail to do so. The 123 Kit addresses and eliminates all the elements in one easy application.
Also, simple enzyme products are lacking. The key is removing the food source. Enzyme products (sometimes called bio-enzymatic cleaners) do not contain bacteria. Enzymes are not alive. They are simply catalysts that accelerate the rate of chemical reaction. They rely on natures bacteria to "perk up" and work a little harder.
How about hydrogen peroxide "recipes"?
Professional carpet cleaners use oxidizers like hydrogen peroxide (for stains) on occasion, but they know how to test for color-fast, and they know how to rinse afterward. Using hydrogen peroxide/baking soda/dish soap recipes for urine odors can damage fabrics and carpets.
Would you really feel comfortable taking advice from someone who has no professional experience in this field, and simply pour hydrogen peroxide on your expensive carpet or upholstery? As for odor, oxidizers like bleach and hydrogen peroxide will kill bacteria, but they can't REMOVE the food source (urine) and if the food source remains, new nature's bacteria arrive in a few days, and the odor will reappear.
Are enzymes safe?
Yes, contrary to what you may have read on other web sites, enzymes are NOT alive.
They are simply catalysts (produced by bacteria,) which speed up chemical reactions. For instance, they assist our own human digestive processes.
Our liquid culture is manufactured by a company that supplies many of the major sanitation facilities across the country. We prefer this liquid culture over powder type enzyme products, because liquid reduces the risk of becoming airborne.
While no long term health problems have ever been noted from handling non-pathogenic enzyme products, dust and aerosol's become airborne more readily, and can cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
Are bacteria safe?
The non-pathogenic type of bacteria used in 1•2•3 ODOR FREE™ are perfectly safe. They are nature's way of eliminating protein wastes.
1•2•3 ODOR FREE™ will eliminate urine, feces, blood, vomit and other protein based substances. This superb laboratory engineered enz/bac culture contains a specially bred species of harmless bacteria, which have a huge competitive advantage in growth over the bacteria in your carpet. By the billions, they rapidly consume the food source, (pee, vomit, feces, blood, etc.) and eliminate the smell permanently and safely.
NOTE: Our industrial strength 1•2•3 ODOR FREE enz/bac culture is formulated in a spore state, and has a shelf life of at least five years, regardless of whether the bottle is closed or open. The bacteria only become active when introduced to a food source.
Does the age of the animal affect the degree of odor?
Very much so. In young animals the kidneys are functioning perfectly, filtering much of the waste out of the pee. An older animals kidneys don't filter as well, and the odor becomes more pronounced.
Does the type, sex, and eating habits of the animal influence the degree of odors and stains?
Yes. Typically male cats are the worst offenders, because of their high protein diet, and the male hormone testosterone in their urine. Female cats would rank next, followed by dogs. A dog's diet is usually more carbohydrate than protein, and this usually translates to less severe problems.
