Just the thought of a vomit stain on your carpet or furniture can literally make you sick but factor in the vomit odor and your are now dealing with a big mess. Vomit accidents can happen at any time and 9 out of 10 times are unpreventable but the key to handling these mishaps like a "pro" is knowing how to remove vomit odors from your carpet and belongings What makes Vomit Smell Vomit is comprised of many bacterias and odors and one of the main culprits of vomit odors is buyric acid.So what is butyric acid and why is it so stinky? It's named actually comes from the Latin word butyrum (or buturum) meaning butter, because it was first extracted from rancid butter by the French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul (bet he loved his job). It’s a fatty acid, which means it’s one of the building blocks of fats. The fat molecule made from butyric acid makes up 3-4% of butter and tied up in this form it’s completely innocuous. However, once those fats start to break down, the evil butyric acid starts to be released.It’s generally found in dairy products, and is a product of anaerobic fermentation (that is, fermentation that happens in the absence of oxygen), hence the links to butter and parmesan cheese. Anaerobic fermentation also happens in the colon. Hence, ahem, the pooh smell. Oh yes, and butyric acid is also what gives vomit that distinctive, smell-it-a-mile-off, odor.
