I am planning on pulling up my carpet and putting down either hardwood or tile, how do I get the dog urine smell out of the floor under my carpet?Is there anything I can polish or put over it to trap it so the smell goes away?

    next to impossible however use a baking soda paste and leave it on over night if possible rince well and re do if necessary. I have no other ideas it works well for me with vomit accidents my dog has.

    Natures Miracle has enzymes that eat the urine. It works! remove the carpet & pad, first.

    Start the process by diluting the stain with water:

    1. Pour warm water directly onto the carpet and blot up the combined liquid with a towel.
    2. Next, use a water/ vinegar mixture to neutralize the stain.
    3. Let the mixture soak into the spot then use a brush to really work the mixture in. The vinegar will neutralize the ammonia in the dog urine.
    4. After the mixture soaks, you can use a wet/dry vacuum to suck up any remaining moisture.
    5. Once the spot dries, sprinkle on some baking soda and a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with a squirt of dishwashing liquid.
    6. Once again, scrub this mixture well into the carpet. When the mixture dries, you can vacuum the residue off of the carpet

    Try spritzing it well with full strength vinegar and let it dry on its own. Put down enough that it can soak into the floor like the urine did. I have good luck with vinegar or cat urine smell, it may work for you. It may take more than one try, sometimes it spreads further than a person thinks. Good luck, Lisa!

    Thank you, I have been using vinegar but it hasn't completely taken away the smell.

    I was told to buy this stuff call Kilz. I guess it comes in a paint can bandit is like a paint,but it is supposed to seal the smell so that animals are unable to smell it. Have you ever heard of it or used it?

    Before installing new flooring, use a primer with odor eliminator on underlayment. Pour directly from can in several areas. Spread with roller using an extension. So quick and easy!
