    I have a job in the works that will have to have some carpets patched. I will have to clean and seal concrete under the carpet. What product do you guys use to clean and seal concrete?

    1. First, thoroughly sweep the surface of all dirt and debris.
    2. Remove any grease, oil, mastic or paint, choosing your cleaner based on the stains that you have.
    3. After the stains have been removed, mop with floor cleaner and water.
    4. Any cracks or pitting will need to be filled in before applying the sealer.

    If you have pet urine odor or stains in carpet and have tried the typical solutions (like vinegar, ammonia, rubbing alcohol, etc.), then you should definitely try the enzymatic approach here too — just like with pet odors and stains on concrete. And as with concrete, you need something that will get in and penetrate the fabric (in the case of pet stained carpet), and break down the odor-causing elements of the stain. Urine-off makes a wonderful enzymatic solution that is perfectly safe for you and your pets. Getting this is a very small investment to pay for removing pet odors and urine stains from carpet!

    Sweep, bleach and water 4:1, force dry while you eat lunch. Kilz works very well.
    On a new install I have bleached concrete only (no sealer) on terrible urine contamination and went back for a water damage a month later and had no issues. The new tenant never knew a thing. Sealer is extra insurance.

    The old version of pro's choice odor barrier was great, it was shellac based but it sure jacked up a pump sprayer like nobody's business. We made lots of flubber unintentionally lol

    Fiberlock has new product - Recon a new max formulation. This is guaranteed to seal in any odor. I have heard some amazing results using it to seal odors from pets, fires, cigarette smoke, etc.

    Available in white or clear. gallons or 5 gallon pails.
