I know they're used to help brighten up the carpet, but my question is :Have you found them successful? Also, how/when do you apply it? Mix in with Prespray? Mix in Rinse bucket? Thanks for you help!

Absolutly they work. Most of the time I boost prespray with matrix miracle. Have to leave room in pump up fir it to expand though. I only mix 1 1/2 gal. at a time in 2 gal pump. And I leave the bleeder open on the pump up and set inside of 5 gal bucket. This catches whatever leaks out and doesn't pop my sprayer like a balloon while I'm working.

Used petzone today on pet stains , it worked , mixed some in a trigger sprayer and sprayed the pet stains first . Then drove it in with my regular prespray with the HF , it seemed to work .

They work but they take time, lots of time. I use an oxidizer on any organic stains that don't come out when I clean it. The oxidizer gets sprayed on the stain full strength after I'm done cleaning and left in to dry. 99% of the time the stain is gone by the time it is dry.

Oxidizers don't work on synthetic stains such as food coloring, that's where you need a reducer such as red stain remover.

Doesn't take much.think its 1 scoop per gal as boost. The hotter the more it expands. I have had it not expand a few times must be the wate idk.. Because it will foam like crazy at one home and do almost nothing at all in another home. Maybe hardness has something to do with it. I use to fill the tank all the way up. Don't do that lol. Needs room to grow.

When I go into a job where there is urine all over the house I often times use an OSR product in the hydroforce as a prespray. I really like Groom Solutions Pet Force, it smells really good and works good too. Mix it hot and use it as a stand alone product. When mixing I put a cap on the jug for 5 seconds while shaking the jug up. Remove the cap and let the product vent. I do this 2-3 times until the powder is dissolved and mixed. Then when I put the draw tube and sprayer into the jug I put the cap on just enough that it will hold on but loose enough to let the product vent. I find it mixes best with hot tap water around 130-140 degrees. Any hotter and the oxygen is too active for the container. I add 5 scoops into the hydroforce with it metering at 1:4 (yellow tip removed) Not only does it work good on pet stains but it's a good traffic lane cleaner too.

Don't mix it with any other presprays or products. See the video below. I say USR in the video but I meant to say OSR. I thought I would add a few ounces of Odorcide, you can see the results. One time I tried mixing Bio Break with OSR and the results were similar to the video but much more volatile.

The picture is from a job yesterday. Pet Force removed all the urine stains and the house smelled good when I left. The dark traffic areas cleaned up like new as well. This was a polyester carpet.

I've never mixed OSR with Biobreak, but all my pre sprays that I've mixed it with haven't had any problems.

But I do know that mixing an oxidizer (OSR) with an enzyme (biobreak) isn't recommended, because oxidizers and enzymes almost cancel each other out. I read somewhere that the oxidizers somehow kill the enzymes. I know the enzymes aren't live organisms, so that was the best way I could describe it. I've only got a high school education, lol

An enzyme treatment is a bacterial culture. Meaning when you apply an enzyme you are applying bacteria that produce enzymes that break down whatever it is designed to break down.

By mixing the oxidizer you are killing the bacteria and therefore they aren't able to make the enzyme.

How do you clean a cut? Hydrogen peroxide is one way (an oxidizer).

Most "enzyme" products we use are not using real enzymes anymore.

I only tried that one time. I don't mix them anymore.

Oxidizers were a game changer for me. Knocks out organic stains and odors faster than that UPT crap. I mix it real hot in a bucket giving it enough room to expand and settle then throw it into a battery sprayer as a booster to my prespray. Then I mix it staight up and douse heavy deposits with a bucket or plant waterer.

yes the oxidizers will cancel out the enzimes every time or vise versa
