Getting rid of that animal smell.
 
This may have been covered before. So here it goes, I have a room where the previous scumbags locked their dog up in. Well the mongeral pissed all over the place. Luckily for me the previous SB's ripped up the carpet and pad. However that yellow liquid penatrated the subfloor and left a unsatisfying aroma.

This is where I come in not taking any chances I ripped all the trim (it was hideous any way) and painted KILZ original all over the floor and two feet up the walls. Now the room smells like new.

This for those that were wondering what to do in this case.

Kilz has worked for me for years.It really is the best way.
Not even the animals can track the scent.

Kewl. Note taken, thanks. I bet it covers cigarette smoke smell, too?

Yes. Seals it up like new. There are a few varietys of kilz But the only ones that seal the nasties real well are (oil based) Original or (water based) Premium. Which is about 7 dollar a gallon difference.

There is also a killer paint called zirolac In my opinion is one of the best out there.

Zinsser stain cover primer and B.I.N primers covered up 30 years of nicotine in a small office we just painted. Not only the scent but the stains as well. One coat of B.I.N and we painted white right over. Beautiful.

getting rid of a smoke smell (fire)
 
if i'm trying to get rid of smoke smell from a fire in a garage, which is the best product to use: kilz or bin? Also, do i need to do any prep work beforehand, like washing or scrubbing. i'd rather not (someone else who is lazy is doing the work), but if it needs to be done, what should i do/use?
