Sorry if this is the wrong place..not sure where to post this.

We have a one car garage that stinks to high heaven. I can't stand it - so much so that I dread going in there. I know part of the problem is ventilation. There are no windows that I could crack to let fresh air in. Currently we use it for storage as it's too small to fit a car in. I know the previous owners had their dogs living there. I've tried scrubbing the floor w/ concrete cleaner but to no avail.

Any recommendations for making it smell better? I'm thinking of painting and sealing the concrete floor - do you think this will help? Thanks!!

Hard to advise without knowing WHAT it smells like. From someone who spends a lot of time in the garage, I've found that usually when it stinks, there's usually something rotting in the corner....recycling bottle half full, wet stuff mildewing, dead creature...lol...etc. When you say it's full of storage....that gets me wondering. Pet odors from previous owner are usually pretty distinct. Also, do you have a moisture problem? If the floor is getting damp, that can cause problems. If not, I'd look at what is "in storage."
