I used to sell concentrated bugs that attacked bacteria like that created by animals and it worked great but the bugs were sensitive to sunlight so were short lived. The bugs created enzymes that ate the bacteria. End of problem. You had to saturate everything thoroughly. Better if you can rip it out.

The bug combination was a proprietary fermentation of naturally occurring and originally developed for treating manure pits on giant pig farms. I sold most to developments and parks departments that had terrible problems with algae growth from fertilizer run-off into ponds and small lakes. The bugs would clear the water in no time.

Look online for enzymatic pet stain and odor products.

As for primers? Same as mentioned. Do pay attention to the warning about the smell and make sure you have adequate ventilation!

SCOE10x should work on just about any surface to get rid of the smell whether it's the carpet, wood, or whatever. It can be pretty expensive if you are treating large areas. You must follow the directions carefully, but it will work.

I have used it on small areas to get rid of horrid cat spray smells and it work. Prior I had tried every other product.

thank you, I was told of such a product but they couldn't remember the name. A nice product to always have on hand and for the hard to reach areas.

I have had personal experience with our old cat and carpet, After the cat went, we changed to hardwood floors, but had to replace boards in damaged areas.

I agree that Zinsser BIN as pictured above, is THE answer for problems. Zinsser 1-2-3 has the potential of allowing water-soluble elements to permeate the primer because it is water-based and will dry slower than BIN.

I have used a product I used to sell that will clean and neutralize any odor. It is called Bio-Zapp. Check it out:

HA! Mr Paint- I have been talking with a Bio Zapp rep in the pro board and he is going to send me a sample to try- but what did you think of it as a paint additive?
Did it have a heavy scented odor of it's own, was it actually able to kill of the paint odors? I'm real interested in an opinion from someone who has used it.

Brush Jockey,
I haven't used it as an additive, I don't think it's for that. Check their websitr to see if they have something for that.

BTW: We bought a used Lexus lease return a few years ago. The previous owner was a smoker and even having the dealer detail the car twice, I could still smell tobacco. I sprayed the entire headliner and visors (Cloth) with Bio Zapp. The smell was gone and never came back.
