I have a rental that has cat urine soaked through the carpet on to the floor. I have tried everything from the pet stores and nothing has worked. Would painting over the urine area neutralize the smell?

It would help. Try Kilz. You'll still have to replace the carpet and pad.

A good coat of Polyurethane will alsop seal in the smell. I'm surprized they don't sell it at your pet store (grin)

You will have to remove the carpet first before you apply it. Most of the smell is in the carpet.

Nature's Miracle available at Petco. It is an enzyme that decomposes pet urine. It takes two-weeks to decompose it completely, but it works. I used it to treat my concrete floor before installing new carpet and pad. If you cover up the odor with paint or primer and new flooring, you will set the stain and your animals will still be able to smell it and continue to mark the area. Best to decompose it and be rid of it.
