odor in concrete

Hi its been a long time since i posted. I have been busy moving into my new house. I have one issue .. The basement laundry room reeks of what i think is dog urine. There was a carpet and i ripped it out (oh how bad it stunk) and the floor still smells. I am not sure it's urine, it could of been the result of a wet stinky carpet but can anyone recommend an odor remover that works on concrete. I read somewhere that an enzyme solution will work. What exactly is the best product and how do i use it?

thank so much

I know they bleach the kennels where I volunteer at an animal rescue. Maybe that would work to kill any germs & smell

Silly question, but are you sure its the floor that still stinks? I know at the shelter to get rid of the smell, we also wipe down the walls and baseboards etc as well as the floor as the urine smell sticks to it in th air.

We just use plain bleach too, but sometimes strong vinegar if its bad.

I have also heard of putting lumps of charcoal in the room to absorb the smell (but not sure if this works or not)

If all else fails, perhaps a good cleaning and then treating the floor with some kind of sealant?

yes.. i heard of using an enzyme cleaner.. one that comes to mind is natures miracle? then once i remove all the smell i am going to treat it? seal it.. i checked the walls and the majority of the smell is coming from the floors.. there are stains to prove it..

thanks

I've never had any luck with Nature's Miracle, but other people like it. I've heard good things about Anti-Ickypoo, but I haven't tried it yet.
