Can someone help me? Whats the difference between bin and kilz when it comes to removing pet urine odor. We just purchased a home and the smell is overwhelming. Should we just paint oversubfloor or remove and paint. Thank you

My problem is cat urine odor in the garage. I care for 4 feral cats who sleep in my garage during the awful winters, especially this winter, here in NJ. For two years I had no problem whatsoever with odor. This year was different. I used a product called GET SERIOUS which I purchased from Petsmart and paid a lot of money for. Used it twice. Still hasn't worked.

Next I'm going to try either BIN pigmented original primer and paint the garage floor and walls or AIR-Re Nu, a paint additive. We'll see what happens.

Hat 2 fixed cats, they urinated on the carpet. I tried cleaning the carpet with Pet stain remover, also put baking soda and hydrogen peroxide on the sub floor. Was good for a while and now the cats are starting again. Just don't know what to do anymore. Does anybody have a tip and that.
Need to rip the rug out and treat the sub floor with something.

I'm in the process of purchasing a house that had cats in it. The sub floor is still wet from cat urine. I am planning on using BIN sealer on the floor. My question is how long does it take for the wet areas to dry? Any suggestions on getting it to dry faster other than using a fan on it? Can I put something on it to help dry it?

Thanks for any help.

Has anyone tried the bin on cat urine and did it work?

Yep. I've been working on a house all summer. Sealed the subfloor with BIN and can't smell ca.t pee anymore.

Works awesome

Works awesome. I can't even smell cat urine in the house I've been remodeling.

I pried up all the oak flooring down to the subfloor, used Nature's Miracle (didn't work well enough) and then used KILZ water-base to seal it. This wasn't enough and NOW I'm reading this post and planning to use BIN. My question is: is it too late now that KILZ is already down?

We bought a house with a lot of dog urine in the carpet, and it had penetrated the plywood subfloor in places. I first used the low odor synthetic shellac water-based BINS primer, which was more expensive, but the urine stains were clearly penetrating it, even after two coats on the wood and sanding & vacuuming the worst white-crystal-marked spots. I don't know if this also carried odor, as the floor wasn't smelly, but we just wanted it sealed so we didn't have any nasty surprises in the hot humid summer later. We did original shelac based BINS on top of that, and there was no soak through. The floors were very dry, and conditions were cool, not humid. In comparing the two products, the water based was much thicker, which sounds like it would be good, but I actually preferred the runnier original because it soaked into the cracks better and spread back under the trim along the wall much easier. The odor diference between the two is incredible. The first was light, but I used a respirator for the original and the house smells something like nail polish remover fumes enough to get lightheaded. Both dried relatively quick. What a wonderful product.
