I immediately thought of Debbie Gartner when I saw your question before clicking on it. I see she has already answered it.
I am glad Debbie answered this question.
Good morning Evelyn. I have done four things, white bleach, hydrogen peroxide, sanded the floors and them sealed them.
We buy many homes to flip, it is a pretty common problem.
If there has been penetration to the wood...as a former "victimized" landlady...the only sure cure we found was to replace the wood...not what you wanted to hear...but not sure anything else is more than a "nose band ait" that will have a long lasting remedy.
I have heard that hydrogen peroxide will work.
-Replacement of the floor.
-You can apply vinegar in warm water, baking soda on floor. Wipe as many times as your energy tolerates to reduce the odor. Yours probably soaked through subfloor as well.
Excellent question that I would love know the answer
