Clean surfaces bring relief from allergies, but cleaning itself can release allergens. Here's how to overcome the spring-cleaning dilemma.
Learn essential carpet cleaning tips for Berber carpet, frieze and other types of flooring.
Once you've found the best flooring for your needs, follow these carpet cleaning and maintenance tips to keep it looking new.
RUN, don't catwalk away !
If there is a strong urine smell, you have to assume their realtor noticed it even if they were acclimated to it and had them clean the carpets so there would be a chance of selling it. The fact there is still strong odor means it has saturated walls, run down behind baseboards, saturated carpet and mat and subfloor, etc.
Short of a total strip-down of all flooring and baseboards, shelves, mantles, etc and complete sanitizing and chlorine bleach treatment of thereby exposed surfaces followed by repainting and reflooring, you don't have a prayer of getting rid of it. If they let their cats spray and urinate in the house they probably did it all over the house, not in one area, as cats tend to want to go to the bathroom in a "clean" area, not in one fixed spot like dogs.
You are looking at probably $20,000 to get rid of the smell for sure, and even then if the house gets humid in rainy or hot sticky summer weather, the smell could come back out of subflooring, etc.
There are a lot of houses out there - I would bet you looked at this one with intent to buy because it was cheap compared to the competition - well, now you know why, and if you buy it I bet you will know why again every time you come into the house, and get run over by the same train when YOU try to sell it.
Just walk away.

The Super Service Award is the highest honor given to companies by Angie's List. The exclusive recognition is given annually to service companies who have achieved and maintained a superior service rating from our members throughout the past year. There is no fee to accept the award, and members look for Super Service Award winners when making a hiring decision because only about 5% of companies on Angie’s List meet the strict eligibility requirements. Being eligible is an excellent achievement!
I hope this information help! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to help!
