Ok, so, my boss has a problem. Her son is trying to sell their house. His dogs liked to use the basement as their bathroom quite frequently. It is an unfinished concrete floor. They've cleaned it several times, but still can't get the ammonia "pee" smell to go away. Any suggestions?

Try soaking the floor with Natures Miracle, you can get it at any pet store. The smell will usually get much worse while it's doing it's work.

Since it's a concrete floor, have they tried bleaching it? I'm not sure how well Nature's Miracle would work on concrete. If there are windows in the basement, open them to help air it out as well.

in the future to prevent this problem teach the dogs to do their business outside. All parties involved benefit.

Concrete is considered porous, so it might be pretty impossible to get the smell out.

My mummy can't believed that they left it after the dogs peed and didn't try to clean it up then. It must have smelled terrible down in the basement!
