It has been awhile since I posted, but I have a question that possibly the
group has some experience with.
I find my self in possession of a mobile home that belonged to a cat
hoarder, let your imagination run wild and it will fall short of what was
actually in the floor of this thing.
The incident that lead up to my ownership made national news.

I bought the place prior to any of this coming to light and my only real
interest was the lot, the mobile home was supposed to be sold and moved,
time ran out on this happening and now I am the proud owner of a trailer
with the floors covered in what cats do best.
1. Giving the local fire department a donation to burn it to the ground
and having scrappers get the remains. This is most likely the sanest, most
trouble free option. May or may not maximize my investment.
2. I have no reason to be in a hurry so why not try to have it cleaned and
deoderize it and put new plywood down to seal the floors in the hope that
it will pass muster for a rental property. I think with me doing all the
work (except intial cleanup) I would have around 6K in this, however if
the stench comes back I will have thrown that money away.
3. Do a tentative cleaning and sale lot, trailer and all, I can probably
make a few thousand doing this, however I had planned to give this to one
of my kids for an investment property.
My main question is does any one know of how to deoderize something like
Maybe some powerful deoderant followed by an elastomeric coating then
new luan subfloor?
Would putting roll vinyl flooring all the way through seal the stench?
I'll entertain any suggestions as there are no real problems with any
possible outcome, the lot itself is easy worth twice what I paid for it.
