ZAPS-IT is a blend of friendly bacteria which remain inactive in the bottle. When sprayed on a problem area, the solution penetrates into porous surfaces, grouting, cracks and hard to reach areas. Upon contact with residues of urine, feces, vomit, blood, food soils and other organic wastes enzymes begin breaking down the odor-forming organics into liquids. The bacteria then convert the absorbed organics into carbon dioxide and water which quickly dissipate. While this process is taking place, the pleasant fragrance of ZAPS-IT provides immediate relief from bad odors. ZAPS-IT enhances the natural waste treatment process by providing the right blend of selectively adapted enzyme producing bacteria to solve your toughest odor and staining problems.
