bad dog odor


i recently purchased my first home and i love it! the problem i have is the old owner had 2 dogs that he let run around in the sun room, which is made of a brick floor and wall, and 3 walls and a roof of lumber. he did not clean up after the dogs and the smell is still there. i have tried pet odor eliminator with no results. the smell is not bad until it rains and then the smell will hit u like a ton of bricks. i know brick and wood are poorise materials. any help?

Buy about 5 gallons of "Natures Miracle" and pour it all over the brick.

Dog urine is alkaline (normally), and you need an acid to neutralize it. Try boric acid or white vinegar. I haven't used Nature's Miracle, but I've heard good things about it also. We used to use "lemoquat" and other cleaners in the hospitals I worked in.

bad dog odor


I had some rats I was keeping in my closed in garage
Te smell was as you would think it would be

I used vinegar and it completely eliminated the rat smell
Unfortunately I used full strength vinegar and a lot of it
So now I have to deal with the smell of the vinegar

At work we use a product call Alpha Eliminator that works incredibly well for just this sort of thing

I treated an attic that stank from bat guano with it
I had to go back in the attic about three months later and there wasn't even the hint of ammonia
The attic smelled quite pleasant

bad dog odor


I spent 20 years in the apartment industry and when I had the odor problems I would tear out the carpet, using a garden sprayer to spray bleach on the floors, let dry and air out, then seal with thompsons water seal. I never had a continuing problem. Not even with new residents with new pets finding the previosly saturated areas.(be sure not to bleach anything but bare floors and have very good ventilation)

is it safe to use thompsons on brick floors?
