Dog Odor from basment concrete?


Purchased house 2 years ago, owner allowed dog to piss all over the concrete unsealed unfinished basement floor. Stains are probably 2-5 years old. The odor only comes out during the summer months when the concrete is warm. I do not have pets. I am trying to finish the basement and dont want the smells coming back in the summer once the basement is finished. Stains are visible on the floor. I would be interested in covering up or removing smell, either way would be great!

Any KNOWN fixes that I can do with supplies from local stores?

Dog Odor from basment concrete?


When our dog can't hold it, we use a product called "Nature's Miracle" to clean things up. It breaks down the compounds in the urine or poo so the dog can't smell that it already went. Apparently, the smell of it makes them think it's ok in the future.

You ought to be able to get it at any pet supply store.

Dog Odor from basment concrete?


Ok, I was told this product only works on recent pet staining. These stains are more than a couple years old. I am sure then have worked their way deep into the concrete. I just dont want to buy 20 products before I find a fix.

Anyone else?

I haven't worked with this before, but have you tried a water/bleach solution and give it a good scrub? I might also try, after scrubbing, to seal the area with a waterproof basement paint or moisture sealer. This, I would think would prevent any smell from coming through.

I think a proven epoxy/sealer is what I am looking for. I was also told that bleach doesnt react well with something in dog urine. Drylok seems like it might be a good choice. Anyone used Drylok to cover up odored concrete?
