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. If interested you can go here> "http://www.fox10tv.com/story/29130929/neighbors-call-bibb-co-property-a-dog-graveyard "
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 this? 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.
