Although the lease allowed one cat - my tenant kept two cats and a ferret in the rental unit. His lease ended last month and after he moved - we were left with a major urine odor problem.

We've cleaned the carpeting and used Simple Solution and Nature's Miracle and we cannot get rid of the urine odor.

The smell is the worst in the sunroom - which is a concrete floor covered with indoor/outdoor carpeting.

We ripped up that carpeting and the smell persists. We will now need to scrape the carpeting glue off the concrete and somehow "seal" out the odor before replacing the carpet. Does anyone know how to do this?

As for the carpeting in the main living areas - I'm afraid they may have to be replaced - and I'm sure this will be a struggle with the old tenant - since the security deposit won't even come close.

My cat has never urinated out of the litter box - so I have no experience in treating urine odors. Does anyone have any suggestions? THANKS
