Removing a Dead Animal Odor from a Mobile Home

I have a double wide mobile home. The previous owner had over 20 cats. Some died and she just let them decompose in the unit over time. Also there were piles of cat feces on the carpet. I tore the carpet out, washed the floor and walls with everything under the sun that is supposed to work. All the cleaners did some good.

But, as soon as I walk through the back door the smell of cat hair mostly at least to me overwhelms big time. What can I do? I have replaced a section of floor in the living room. Painted the floor and 2ft from the floor up the walls all the way around the unit with Kilz. I even hired a company to clean the duct work and the smell is bad still. Anyone had similar experience and succeeded in removing the offensive odor?

Are you positive there are no dead animals under the floor boards or in the walls? If you are sure that there are no carcasses, some people swear by a cleaning product called Epoleon to remove difficult odors. Please follow the directions exactly. You can buy it online on most of the big shopping sites.

Wishing you a fast and thorough solution.

There is a product called Nok-Out that is highly recommended by Mary Hunt, the creator of Everyday Cheapskate. You can buy it on Amazon. It has excellent reviews.

I don't know... for instance does this home have some sort of ACHV system? The disgusting odours could have permeated to every last corner and structure of the unit and it might not be able to get it out ever again

defo air it out, it was good to clean the way you did also consider investing in a room ozone machine

www.amazon.com/.../?tag=thrif06-20 ($70)

www.odorfreemachines.com/.../ ($375)

the idea of the ozone air purifier is it transmits an unstable oxygen molecule and the free radical attaches to odour producing molecules and zaps them. Kind of like what H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) does to germs

a woman i know had a weird musty basement that was well helped by a machine like this
