Pet urine smell

Post by Deepakb » Thu Nov 21, 2019 1:39 pm

Hi ALl,

bought our first house, there is so much of pet's urine smell in a room on the first floor of the house. removed carpet, underlayment, and wet Moped the floor nicely. bad Smell reduced by 90% percent but still smells.

there is stick and peel vinyl sheet on the concrete. do i need to remove that too to get ride of 10% remaining smell. can that be the reason of remaining smell?

Is this individual tiles or a sheet material? If its individual tiles there could be residual urine in the spaces between the tiles? If its a full sheet material and in good condition then I would think it would not have absorbed the urine? Are you sure its not something else in the room like maybe the lower drywall or door trims. A cat or dog could have been spraying against the lower portions of anything in that room.

its individual tiles. All four walls in the room are drywalls but they are no soggy at this time. not sure if previous owner might have done something there to hide it.

You can't wash out cat urine smell. You need to neutralize it.
My daughter went through all kinds of products, but found that the Arm&Hammer pet stain and urine control worked the best. It's not expensive, and worth giving a try.

I would pull up the peel and stick flooring to clean and treat with a cat urine neutralizer, such as Nature's Miracle for cats. I would then apply several coats of BIN primer on both the floor and the walls to seal in the odor as much as possible. I say "several coats" because it will take more than one, probably 3 or 4, before you get enough of a layer to block the odor. With the primer done, you can then paint the walls.
