I just had a terrible situation with this very issue. A (large) Condo, with 21 CATS, and the son of the property owner, who knew the place was going to sheriff Sale, and didn’t provide a litter box, or clean-up after any of the cats. It was an undescribable situation !!!
I removed carpeting and tried Odor-Xit, and several other products, without any success. I scrubbed the less affected areas with 1 to 1, bleach and water combo, and a stiff brush; repeating numerous times. In the areas where the bleach did work, I then painted all the floors with (Oil Base) Bins Sealer. The Latex product (Kilz or Bins) wouldn’t seal the residue of remaining odor. In some heavier effected areas, I needed to apply two and three coats- of the sealer. In the heavier soiled areas, cleaning was no match for this pet damage. It took replacing the OSB, sub-floor and some of the bottom plates of the walls, and lower drywall, where the cat unrine had run under the walls, and been left to sit.
Hopefully your pet damage will be less intense than what I encountered, but I have had no luck with these type of enzyme odor problems, short of the above comprehensive approach.
I definitely earned the $$$ that I made on that project…
