How can I get rid of cat urine odor from cement floor and wall?

I just bought a condo and after I moved in noticed a strong cat urine smell when I would open the doors to my washer and dryer. After removing the carpet in the corner where the odor was I discovered the drywall was wet and crumbling and the odor is in the cement flooring.

I know of 3 things
1)60% vinegar & 40%water (but depends on how strong the odor 50/50 sometimes works ...you can always use a bit more vinegar it always smells better than what your ridding).
2) "Complete Stain & Odor Remover" made by Eight In One Pet Products (www.eightinonepet.com).
3) "Out" Cat Stain & Odor Remover
Out International sells it (www.outpetcare.com)

#2& 3 both have $ back guarantee if it helps, if you want pics of bottles or barcodes to scan & find let me know.

Vinegar and any sweet smelling scents

It's absolutely not the carpet and it absolutely is cat urine?

I was thinking power wash but I think that might make the dry wall worse off if it's already crumbling because power wash is pretty tuff on objects that are already wearing down.

I'm not really sure about the methods to do it, since I've never tried, but there's a few things I've heard of.

For one, baking soda. It should clean and remove the smell. Bleach could probably also do the job, as could ammonia. Try cat litter, should all else fail.

Also, get it looked at by an expert- drywall shouldn't be wet and crumbling as far as I know, and if the odor's in the flooring it could mean you have mold/nasty stuff in there, and it could be an health issue.

Happened to me too as far as drywall, I had to pull it out and replace it to get rid of smell and mold. You might try kiltz to get rid of the smell on concrete.

Hope you have buyers insurance. Should cover this nasty set of problems. Probably need professional help if the previous suggestions pan out. When a raccoon died in my moms wall, we ended up calling one of those companies that specialize in crime scene cleanup. "Smell? What smell", she said. LONG deceased critter. Yecch!!

I just moved and the previous tenant had several cats and also smoked the; odors were throughout the house. The landlord compensated me for repainting all the interior walls, I added the Air-ReNu paint additive that a friend recommended and thankfully, the house stays smelling fresh no more odors. One application works continually no re-application required. Check it out www.air-renu.com
