Cleaning subfloor


I ripped up the carpet in the living room because I was tired of the house smelling like dog piss So we've been walking on the subfloor for a good 3-4 months I would say. I'm going to paint it with Binz primer but how would I clean it first? Thanks!

Cleaning subfloor


Cover the whole floor with baking soda and walk on that for 3 days, then sweep it up mop it and prep it for painting.

The baking soda shoul help remove any residual smell.

Cleaning subfloor


Thanks! I've been treating a couple spots with a mixture of peroxide, baking soda, and a little bit of dawn. I just don't want to seal in the dirt I guess.
