Visit a local pet store and ask them for advice about what type of enzyme liquid to use, Oderix is one...you dilute it wash the floors and walls with it. --96.239.xxx.xx

First step is to permanently remove tenant and cats. scrub with warm water & sudsy ammonia with oderban added ( available at Sams Club).Take up any rugs or carpet seal floors with BIN or Oil based Kilz. Add No Pet clause to rental agreement --99.103.xxx.xxx

THANK YOU!!!!

TENANT IS ON THE WAY OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was thinking of using baking soda first for say 48 hours so that it can absorb and hopefully dry out the floors (all hardwoods, real hardwoods:(( ).

Tenant is NOT receiving her sec dep back. Not only for this but for MANY reasons, all legal, documented, receipts, etc.

Thanks again!!!!

If you own in FL, Broward county I need a min of a 2.2. --68.226.xx.xxx

You will probably need to seal the floors with an oil-based product. --66.61.xxx.xxx

Vinegar placed in bowls all around the apt works pretty well too. In one day the smell decreases by 50% and continues to dimenish more and more each day. I did this when my last tennants left and it worked pretty well. --64.148.xxx.xx

THE solution is OdorXit.

I bought a boarded-up bank-owned 3 family that had served as a cat urinal for months - it reeked - made your eyes water - absolutely horrible smell.

First, I pulled up and removed all carpet on floors, closets, stairs, everywhere. (The cat urine stench was so strong that I had to use a respirator with a charcoal filter).

Second, In a garden sprayer, I mixed OdorXit per directions and sprayed till all floors were wet (the OdorXit has to flow between the floor cracks and down to the subfloor which is where the cat urine went). I also sprayed 2' up all walls, doors, etc.

After 24 hours, the smell was almost gone. I re-sprayed the rooms that still had a slight odor.

After another 24 hourse, cat odor was absolutely and permanently gone. One bottle of OdorXit was all it took to treat this 3 family building.

This stuff doesnít simply mask the cat stench with another stronger perfumy smell. OdorXit chemically bonds/neutralizes the cat urine.

Itís been 2 yrs since I used OdorXit on this 3 family. Since then, no tenant has mentioned a single word about bad smells in this property.

I donít want to sound like an infomercial, but OdorXit is a landlordís secret weapon. You won't be disappointed.

Paint over with oil based kilz. If it is really bad, do 2 or 3 coats. Hasn't failed me yet. --99.156.xxx.xxx

I dealt with this with an inherited tenant. As Reid stated, we pulled up all carpet and then painted the subfloors with OIL-based Kilz to seal in the smell (this was after spraying with odo-ban and some other products - NOTHING was getting this smell out). We also painted up the walls about 3 feet to allow for any cat spray. The day after we did this, the smell was GONE...a miracle! 3 years later and the unit does not smell at all. --70.130.xxx.xxx

Never mix carpet with walking pets, seal/prime the subfloor with shellac based primer before adding the floor which you see. Photos move-in/move-out are the best in the courtroom disputes. --24.241.xxx.xxx
