I got a call from a property manager of mine asking if I could clean a wood floor to remove urine smell. I have never dealt with urine on wood before and so I am looking for thoughts on how to clean/seal, if possible. Thanks for the help.
Its a tuff one. Because it gets into the tongue & groove. Then if real bad will get under the boards which act like gutters sending it which ever way tge plywood is pitched. If it were sanded in place and finished you'll probably be alright. But prefinished is not sealed between planks.
Unlike massive parquet, the parquet board is made of three layers: moisture-proof plywood, coniferous wood and valuable species. Strength, beauty and a long service life is provided by the top layer, which is made of valuable wood. If you choose the right care products https://cleanhomeguide.com/best-brooms-for-hardwood-floors/ for your floors, take care of it in a timely and correct manner, this flooring will last for decades.
The condition of the existing sealer and finish plus the gaps between boards will influence how much urine can get down into the wood. Deep penetration may mean decay and color change as well as odor.
If the wood is in good shape, try to recreate the conditions by applying a "...cide" product such as Hydrocide or Hydrocide Xtreme anywhere the urine may have penetrated. Allow a minute or two for it to soak in and work. Then clean, get the wood dry with extraction and air movement, seal with a good wood finish.
That should help a lot depending on the way the wood was installed and the condition of the wood and how much urine was deposited.
