My cat sprayed this one area that has tile flooring, underneath is concrete the flooring meets rug that has plywood then concrete underneath, hard to clean. I had to take the strip of wood that goes inbetween the Tile and the rug. I forget what its called. What I did was bleach it first, then after that dried I literally had to pour a whole bottle of Peroxide and a box of baking soda on my floor, I let it sit for about 5 minutes then I cleaned all that mess up, then again went back with regular soap and water. All in all it took me about 2 hours to clean the whole area including drying times. I really worked.

We had a cat that constantly sprayed in one room. After doing the vet visits and attempted retraining with medication, we got rid of the cat. We pulled the rug up because after constant cleaning and having carpet companies come in to clean, we still couldnt get rid of the small. Well, the hardwood floor underneath is ruined. I cannot afford to rip up the flooring and start over again. I cleaned it thouroughly by hand. I have a few areas where, if it is really humid, I swear there is urine seeping up through the wood. HELP!!! As I stated, I cannot afford to rip up the floor. Any ideas? I am considering sanding, painting and varnishing. Sound good?
