Post How to remove cat urine odors before laying laminate floor

We have just taken up old carpet that was ruined by cat and dog urine. Before we lay laminate, how can we remove lingering odors in subfloor? Kilz?

Paint it with an oil based sealing primer - Kilz oil based would suffice.

Ya, you need to seal them in. An oil base primer like Kilz would be bare minimum. A pigmented shellac primer like Zinnser's BIN would be the ultimate sealer. I wouldn't trust any waterbased sealer to do the job.

almost forgot welcome to the forums!
