Mercaptans have disagreeable odors and can be found in crude oil. Methyl mercaptans is produced as a decay product of animal and vegetable matter. Allyl mercaptans is released when an onion is cut. T-butyl mercaptans blends are often added to odorless natural gas to serve as a warning of a gas leak.
Thioethers such as alkyl and aromatic thioethers are commonly called “sulfides”. Generally thioethers are a clear and volatile organic compounds with a disagreeable odor with a very distinct scent.
Amines are organic compounds that contain nitrogen. Amines are basic compounds with strong odors often described as fishy.
Hydrogen Sulfide is an extremely hazardous, toxic compound. It is a colorless, flammable gas that can be identified in relatively low concentrations, by a characteristic rotten egg odor. The gas occurs naturally in coal pits, sulfur springs, gas wells, and as a product of decaying sulfur-containing organic matter, particularly under low oxygen conditions. It is therefore commonly encountered in places such as sewers, sewage treatment plants (H2S is often called sewer gas), manure stockpiles, mines, hot springs, and the holds of fishing ships.
Ammonia is a chemical compound of nitrogen and hydrogen. It is a colorless pungent odor. Ammonia is also used for cleaning and found in urine and cat urine. A cat's urine has that super strong odor also because of protein contained in it. When cat urine dries on the carpet it forms crystals and those crystals are the source of a serious cat urine odor.
Note: For sever cat urine pad removal and floor and tackles strip sealing may be required. Surround Bright all may be used first followed by Surround ProFresh when dry along with hot water extraction techniques to wash out accumulated urine.
