Getting rid of dog smell


My husband and I are purchasing a house that smells horribly of dog. We know that we have to paint the entire house and change all of the flooring. By doing these two things will we remove the smell? Does anyone know of a treatment that we should do to the concrete slab before laying new flooring? Or a treatment to the walls? Do you suggest changing the floorboards in case of saturation? We've completely remodeled the house that we have now, but have never had to deal with the dog smell. Thanks to anyone with suggestions.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Bullseye 123 shellac will cover most of your smells, ceilings, walls and floors, prior to painting/flooring.

Getting rid of dog smell


I'd start by removing everything from the house. All the carpet needs pulled up, then scrub the whole place, floor to ceiling with a detergent/water solution and a little elbow grease.

If there is wood over the concrete floor look for stains. If present and depending on the type of floor they can be nutralized. There are dozens of products out there, but beware they may change the finish of the floor. Worst case you need to pull it up. Clean the concrete and let it dry completely. Then use a sealer and your set to install a floor.

A fresh coat of paint on the walls, ceiling and trim will finish the job.

I like to nutralize the odor, then seal everything.

Just my 2

Getting rid of dog smell


Hi,

My wife and I are in the same situation. We have managed to neutralize some of the dog and cat smells....but not all. Thinking of refinishing the hard wood floors in the entry. Will that be effective?

We washed and painted the floor, walls and ceiling of the garage. After a few months it still smells like wet dog. Ahhhh! Any advice would be treasured.

Thanks

you can go directly to a Pet store and buy special formulated neutralizing cleaners. They work great for animal smells and stains for that matter. Nature's Miracle is a good brand. This type products are specifically formulated for pet odors and stains in floors and carpet.

I have managed 2 pet stores for 16 years and this info spot on, use an enzyme based product. You will apply it and leave it down, if you miss a spot where a dog/cat has urinated you will still have the smell. A black light will help pin point soiled areas.
