smelly stained floors


I recently purchased a house for a really good price however the house stinks of animals I pulled up carpet in my living room to find pet stains all over the wood. It looks as if someone just let their dog use the fllor as a bathroom. I was told I can put a product called kilz on my floors to help seal in the smells but there are so many dfferent types and I also plain in using a stain and finisher in one to make my floors look nice the exact product is http://www.lowes.com/pd_47140-24-614...ins&facetInfo=

My questions
1. What type of kilz do I use for the pet stains
2. Can I use the kilz under the type of stain I have choosen or do I have to go a different route?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I know this is embarrassing,but post a picture----

I think you may need to rip out the stained boards--or the whole floor in that room.

Shellac is the sealer in most products like Kilz---If you wish to coat the existing floor with a smell blocker ---simply use shellac----

My experience in these matters is this---nothing is going to seal in the smell on a hardwood floor---to many joints and seams---the odor will quickly return when the humidity goes up.--Mike----

I also would never suggest Polyshades for any project unless your looking for a blotch finish.
And never ever for a floor!
That stuff would not hold a week on a floor.

Rip out the floor, and subfloor, and then treat the joists with a shellac based primer. You may also have to rip out the bottom section of drywall as well.

I wish I could post a pic but kind of glad I can't right now it's that bad. I'm almost positive i'm going to have to rip the floor up anyway theres a very weak spot by my front door it sounds like the wood is going to simply snap in half. When I look up from my basement the wood looks almost brand new is it possible theres like a sub floor underneath my actual floor?

smelly stained floors


In the old days, there were often 3 layers---1950s and before---

over the floor joists;
1. 1x6 subfloor
2.1x2 'sleepers'
3.hardwood floor.

Often the electric conduit was run along side of the sleepers--so be careful when demoing---
