Couldn’t resist. Ruff.

There’s an enzyme treatment you can buy at Petsmart that really works, but I’ve only used it on carpet. It might work on other surfaces, just don’t know. What kind of surface is it? Concrete? Tile? Wood? Dirt?

Downside: the enzyme treatment may take a few to several weeks to clear-out the smell, and may need more than one application. But it does work permanently. Depending on the surface material, Kilz may be the way to go.

Bow wow wow;

One of my latest purchases is a sfh which I will rehab and sell. Prior to foreclosure, the house was a pit bull puppy mill, complete with straw in the basement and upstairs bedrooms. I’ve used professional odor elimination specialist before, but all they really did was spray expensive chemicals. Heck, I’ve got a sprayer, but have not yet found any really strong stuff. I’m looking for prescription strength, not over the counter.

Any suggestions? Thanks, Rolfe

If its on wood, mop it with a mixture of 50% vinegar, 50% water and let it air dry. Really slosh it on. After it has dried a few days seal it with Bins sealer or Kilz. On concrete I understand that kitty litter, spread heavily over the area for a few days will do the trick, although I haven’t tried that one. Just bought a house that the previous tenant left there rotweiler locked in it for 3 weeks. Used the vinegar method, took care of it. DanT

I’d recommend an ozone Blaster manufactured by Alpine. You can place it in the area and leave it overnight. When you come back, the odor should be gone. Plus, it’s programmable so you can set the levels and time. Great for rehabs. with odors.
