This Stuff Saved the Day

First, let me say this is NOT a sponsored post. However, I am highly recommending the following product to anyone remodeling an old house, or any house that has pets.

The past few years, my husband allowed our renters to have pets. I say "my husband" because I did not approve, but it's hard to turn down money in your pocket. Our last renters were university students in the vet program. They seriously had every animal under the sun in our house. Dogs, cats, rabbits, and even lab rats.

Yep. I said it. Lab rats. And before you ask, they were in a cage. (I told you this was going to be one heck of a remodel!)

In their defense, Shannon informed me the rats were cleaner than any of the other animals. I, on the other hand, couldn't help but cringe at the thought.

Anyway, once we pulled up the flooring it was obvious that some of the subfloor would need to be replaced. Thankfully, that's more of a headache than an expense. Despite the new subfloor, the smell remained. I even got down on my hands and knees and sniffed every inch of those floors trying to find a spot we might have missed.

Enter Kilz Primer.

Seriously, this is the best stuff ever. It has a stain blocker in it that seals the smell, be it a pet smell or smoke smell. We painted the subfloor in the worst smelling room (the one with the partially new subfloor) and the smell disappeared! This stuff is the bomb! I couldn't believe it. I told Shannon we were painting the entire house with the stuff. He just rolled his eyes.

Needless to say I am a true believer of this primer. It definitely saved the day.
