|So our home is, idk... 120 years old? Which sounds cool, but really it just means that it's old as dirt and therefor has all the old-as-dirt-problems (it isn't a neat old house, its really just small and ancient).
Well, others have done SOME work to it, but that SOME work included putting carpet (3 years old) in EVERY ROOM. Because we live on a dirt road, own 3 dogs, a cat, and the Husband hunts/fishes/generally gets exraordinarily dirty...it's a HUGE issue.
It's been fine until I introduced the puppies (Paisley and Pixie) into the house. And although Paisley is housebroken, the smell still lingers. I've tried everything. I've used vinegar and water, I've used Urine Eliminator, I've used the steam vac filled with enzyme killing stuff... The smell WONT go away.
I would give my right arm and a few toes to get rid of the carpet, but I don't think we can. You see, thanks to our 120+ year old house that stands on stilts, the floor is uneven. Yes, our entire floor is made of pine boards that are officially at different level all over the place. I can feel it under my feet when I walk.
That means that we would literally have to rip up our entire floor and replace every board to have anything but carpets.
SO. How do I kill the smell. Or does anyone have an alternative to make a cheap flooring work?
