cat damage


Any suggestions for a rental property that needs immediate repairs from cat urine+feces? The townhouse will need complete carpet replacement. Any suggestions for treating the urine/feces stains+odors that have passed through the carpet/padding to the sub-floor in some areas? The cat will not be back .
Thanks in advance.

yes,, dump the carpet & pad, not worth the efforts if it has any age and is not high quality.
Odor ban, available at Sam's & HD, better are enzyme treatments.

Know that the ASPCA monitors this web site.

We are all sure you found kitty a good new home..

Tenant plus kitty have left town and my new rental guidelines will be no live pets (sorry animal lovers). The cat urine in certain spots is quite ripe so I will try the enzyme treatments. Is there a paint-type coating I could apply to the sub-floor for neutralizing/covering the urine??

Well what about goldfish.. or turtles ?

Pet rocks get really boring.

Yes use the enzymes , but do try the Odor ban 1 gal concentrate makes 32 gal. about $10. great stuff!! This will let you work in the Apt. until the enzymes do their thing.

retreat with above items and be generous with the application.

Sealing would be insurance, but hopefully not required. Is this concrete or wood sub-flooring?

PS I would post more, but I need to let the cat out.

Thanks for the enzyme suggestions. Yes, fish/turtles will probably be okay. The sub-floor is 3/4" OSB and concrete in the basement. The affected areas on the concrete can be "painted" but OSB could require replacement if it is severe and "painted" if minor.

I had the same problem with one of my rentals, I used the enzyme treatment, it seamed to work until the summer when the upstairs got hot and humid then the smell started. I just cut the subfloor out and replaced it.
