With over 35 years of experience in product testing under our belt, we understand the importance of categorizing our ratings for each item review. Testing categories make it possible for us to produce more accurate results and narrow down the best choices to recommend to consumers. We used three categories for our enzymatic cleaner tests—odor, effectiveness, and application.
Odor: We carefully reviewed the scent of each cleaner to determine its smell after it was applied. More specifically, we observed whether a scent was pleasant, or just made the room smell like chemicals.
Effectiveness: Effectiveness was one of our top categories. We paid close attention during each review to determine how well the cleaner lifted stains while also eliminating odors. We also checked how useful the product was on different types of surfaces.
Application: The product’s ease of use was an additional part of the testing process. We wanted to know how convenient each cleaner is for consumers to use in their home to make for an easy clean-up process for pet messes.
