Due to irresponsible tennants leaving cat and dog locked indoors I am now cleaning up a mess. Am using bleach to clean surfaces and will be steam cleaning carpets but do you have any other advice of removing the smell of animal urine ??
"kagp2006" is correct in stating you will probably need to replace the carpeting. Although it might pass with a good steam cleaning for now, come winter when the rooms are shut off from fresh air the smell will prove overwhelming. The urine goes through the carpet and permeates the padding beneath, and as another poster said cat urine is the worst.
The wood floors might be okay with a vinegar and water mopping but you might have to sand and refinish to seal in the odor.
Although pets are wonderful, irresponsible pet owners are not. I would not allow tenants to have a pet unless they put up a hefty deposit and a small fee per month to cover any potential damage.^^
