Cat Urine in Brick
My niece just purchased a lovely home with a brick hearth. Problem is that when she went to clean the brick to prepare it for sealing it, it brought up the unmistakable smell or cat urine. She is NOT happy !! But I told her I would try to find a solution to her problem..... so ..... anyone have any suggestions? She has tried some scent removal solvents that she got at WalMart, but the scent persists. She is threatening to have the entire hearth ripped out, but the brick is all hand made by the previous owner who built the home. and it would be a shame to destroy those wonderful bricks..
