Why does pet odor smell worse in the spring and summer?

Tuesday, Jun. 18th 2013

As urine begins to dry it changes its hydrogen content and forms crystalline salts, which take on an alkaline pH. When dried urine is remoistened it gives off an ammonia gas. This is one way to identify a problem area, by the odor. If smelled once it is seldom forgotten. The source of odors associated with urine comes from two sources. The first contains bacteria, which grows abundantly in dark warm places with a never-ending food source. The dog feeds the bacteria daily! This bacteria growth and breakdown of urine creates amino acids. These complex organic compounds will often work deep into the fibers to a point of becoming part of the fiber. This can present a challenging situation. The waste materials and gases from the decomposing urine create an unpleasant odor.

The second source of odor is chemical odor that is present even when the bacteria have been killed. This explains the reason that more than disinfecting is necessary to neutralize odors from urine. Urine also presents additional odor problems when the relative humidity is high. The salts are reactivated by moisture; so they give off a greater proportion of odorous gases. Before urine can be treated, the urine must be found. An odor cannot be removed unless the source of the odor is removed.
