Old vinyl floors and a dog

I have a dog who has destroyed the vinyl off the floor in her room. Luckily, it needed to be redone, but now our dog has decided to be pee and poop on the stuff under the Vinyl(She had ripped them up and it the stuff under the Vinyl). What will be the best way to clean this and get rid of the smell? Im tired of a stinky room and Horriable dirty stained floor.

Welcome to the forums! Taking up all the vinyl and underlayment is a start. Then use a product such as OdoBan for a short time, then applying Oil base Kilz or BIN to covr over the wood and encapsulate the odor.

Set your sights on stripping the room, laying down 1/4" concrete backer underlayment and ceramic tile. It will be impervious (for the most part) and your dog will have a nice cool floor to lay on.

Ashley Wolf,

Have you had her into the vet to make sure she hasn't got a health issue causing the loss of control with elimination in the house? Many times dogs will have health issues that can trigger a failure of once solid housebreaking. That would be my first suggestion.

Larry has the steps listed I would suggest, but also be sure to keep the dog off the areas where this is being done, until the chemicals (and their fumes) have safely dissipated as many of them are very toxic.

Do keep us posted.
