What is KAPUT!™?
KAPUT!™ is a strong oxidizer consisting of chlorine dioxide (ClO2 derived from stabilized sodium chlorite) that is used for many applications including organic odor and stain removal.
How does it work?
Add KAPUT!™ to one gallon of room temperature water (see below for mixing instructions). Unlike powder products, there is no activation time needed. Apply KAPUT! evenly to surface. Must have approximately 15 – 30 minutes of contact time and follow with your standard cleaning process (see below for additional questions regarding cleaning). Please read complete instructions and warning labels prior to use.
How much should I mix?
Add 10oz – 15oz of KAPUT!™ to one gallon of odor depending on severity. Measure accurately. In virtually every instance – even with heavy odor – you will get great results at 10oz per gallon. Do not over mix, more is not better!
How long does it take to work?
You’ll notice an immediate improvement. However, complete odor elimination will take longer, sometimes up to 2 – 3 days.
Can I use this with all carpet cleaning methods?
Why is there sometimes a strong oxidizing odor after applying KAPUT!™?
This is a reaction of the product oxidizing organics – particularly urine. The more severe the urine is, the stronger the product will react. This will dissipate once the odor source has been completely broken down.
Will it discolor carpet?
We always suggest testing an area first. Use provided contents at recommended dilution.
Can I add to my cleaning product?
You can, but allow for proper contact time and we suggest using a neutral or high neutral non-peroxide cleaner. Always test this prior to use to make sure the two products are compatible.
Can I add peroxide?
This is typically not needed or recommended. We suggest a stand alone application of peroxide (such as Go-Oxy™) for stubborn stains.
How long will it last?
Product has an approximate 1 year shelf life when stored at average room temperature.
How should this be stored?
Store using a closed container in a well ventilated area at average room temperature.
Is this better than a powder CLO2 product?
Both are equally effective. The dry product is used to produce a liquid product that you can then apply. Some end users prefer the convenience and ease of use of a ready-to-dilute liquid product, while others prefer the economy of packets and jars. All variations provide a low cost odor removal solution. When using KAPUT!™ be sure to measure accurately – this is an absolute must.
