Question DetailsAsked on 11/11/2013

Getting cat urine odor out of sub flooring

We will be removing old carpet that was soaked with cat urine in several spots. The carpet and padding will be thrown out but i'm concerned about urine odor lingering in the sub-flooring. Some of the sub-flooring is concrete and some is wood. What can we do to treat those two different surfaces before we install new carpet? Is this something a good installer will do or should we DIY it? I REALLY don't want cat urine odor seeping up from the new carpet. Thanks.

If you go to a good pet supply store there are products you can get to neutralize the odors. I do not remember the product name I used in a house that was empty and had a family or two of raccoons living in it. I caught 12 in the house and it reeked but after a few applications you could not smell anything.
