Cat Urine in Wood


Hello,

We bought our house in winter and the nasty smell of cat urine did not appear in our stairway until the weather warmed up.

We're preparing to put in laminate flooring and I've just pulled up the carpet & underlay from our stairs.

What can I do to remove or seal the smell before installing our laminate on the floors and painting the walls?

I really want to do this right and never have to smell that putrid scent again! Would appreciate any input.

If it's a consideration, I'm located in the Vancouver area of British Columbia.

Pet stores like PetSmart and Petco sell neutralizers. I'd also seal everything with a few coats of shellac based primer just to be on the safe side.
