Folks, I repeat: one of the major components causing foul odors is the growth of bacteria in the carpeting/padding, along with the urea chrystallization itself. This is not healthy to live with. Want to live in a catbox? Walk through kitty's catbox in your bare feet, or your let your kids play in the catbox? I don't think so. Perfumes, deodorizers, enzymes, and ozone misters are maskers and only cover the problem. They are not making your home sanitary. The only way to truly deodorize a foul odor IS TO REMOVE THE SOURCE. If you don't believe me, don't use them for 2 days and your nose will wrinkle, especially on hot, humid summer days.
nadastimer, you are right - subfloor odors can be sealed with two coats of oil modified polyurethane. Check your baseboards, also; male cats have a habit of spraying them to mark territory. In this case, repaint or revarnish.
128 oz. Carpet Machine Concentrate Cleaner and Deodorizer
I really like this product. I like the fact that it is sanitizes surfaces and that I can use one product to clean, deodorize and disinfect. I am not crazy about the original scent, but it does smell clean and the odor dissipates pretty quickly. It's very versatile. I use it in the kitchen, the bathroom and to clean up after the dog. This product makes me feel like I am really cleaning the dirtiest places in the house and getting rid of germs.
We have a recurring mold problem in our kitchen because of the way the sink and faucet were installed and I can use it safely and effectively there. I also put some in my laundry and I highly recommend it for people who have to use laundromats because I read that just washing doesn't get rid of all the germs in laundry.
OdoBan does the job it is supposed to do and it does it very well.
I don't really care that much for the original smell, but there are others now that I would like to try. At least, it has a very fresh, clean odor.
