Does Just Rite's 123 Odor free really work for cat pee?

I am trying to pinpoint all the places where my former tenants let cats wee on the floors or spray the walls. We have ripped out carpet, padding and baseboards. Did the black light test the other night with horrifying results. There were so many little spots and big patches along with pretty much every area where the baseboards were glowing yellow-white! Now I'm going back through to do close up sniff tests of suspicious areas to see if I can tell what is possibly old cat urine and what is maybe adhesive for the baseboards or something else that is glowing.....before treating the entire place.

The floors under where the carpets were are concrete downstairs and thin plywood floor panels upstairs.

After much research, I think I may have found a true solution for the problem with the "123 Odor Free" product line from Just Rite cleaning products. Highly active bacteria cultures that "eat" the urine and actually eliminate it. No need to seal with shellac or Kilz or anything like that afterwards (which evidently develops tiny cracks that still let the odor through!). Has anyone tried it yet? The science makes sense to me and every other remedy has disappointing results if you spend hours online researching!


Another big concern is that they painted almost every wall, so I can't really tell if the cats sprayed somewhere behind the paint or not. (almost all areas of where the baseboards were have glowing stuff on them, but I can't believe the entire house would be sprayed- at least I hope not!) Thinking of lightly sanding the new paint off to reveal the offending urine better and treat it.

I have no experience with that product. But I do use amazon reviews often. If a product has a 1000 plus reviews I figure that's a good barometer. Your product doesn't show up as available on amazon but if you search for cat urine I found this stuff with 4.6 stars out of 5 from 2,417 reviews
Don't look at me. I didn't vote for either one of them.
