how do you get hardwood floors soaked with cat urine to let go of the moisture and smell?

Revised:

Wipe down floors with vinger. I would blot not rub or use paper towels to lift the liquids.

Note:Cat urine glows under black light..will help you to see all the areas that need treating. Check the entire property walls baseboards and if you have a basment look from the basement.

I would lay down a mixture of baking soda and cat litter.
remove and redo…….final application just baking soda,cover with news paper let set up over nite,repeat if necessary.
Go with bacterial/enzyme products.I listed a few below.

I would still absorb as much as you can up..in the end even after drying the crystals are left and the bacteria has to die…
the application of a combined bacterial enzyme product will help.

Note:might need to repeat with baking soda during high moisture days. The floors may actually sweat cat urine…

Might as well purchase large boxes of backing soda from what your post says(soaked)

This may take time and reapplications in the end I hope that works otherwise subflooring and frame flooring may be damaged and removal is the last option.

Good luck..

    Get you some Arm & Hammer baking soda and sprinkle it on it and let it stay for a couple of hours and then vaccum.

    Try Nature's Miracle which is an enzyme sold at pet supply stores. It worked in my home on a combination of hardwood floors and an area rug which got a lot of cat urine when one of my cats got sick. But you have to use it first (or so it says on the bottle) rather than after you've used a lot of other cleansers. Good luck!

    YOU CAN'T! The floors have to be sanded down and sealed. Anyrthing else will be a waste of time and money! You may even need to do the baseboards!
