So recently we were looking at rentals and found the perfect house..well it was perfect the first time we saw it. There was a faint smell but I thought it was just old empty house smell and it was faint. There were no bugs or anything.
So we did the paperwork, signed the lease, paid the deposit, got the keys. Now when we walked in the smell was overwhelming (it was much warmer that day) of dog urine! We also found 4 cockroaches!!
We immediately went and got bombs for the bugs (we hadn't moved anything in), bombed it overnight, found 4 more dead ones the next morning. We aired it out and wiped down all surfaces with vinegar water.
Today we're going to look at all the rooms and caulk any small holes or gaps or anything and we got those traps to use for them that we'll put in cabinets and under beds *shudder*.
What can we do about the dog urine smell? The house was built in 77 and honestly it looks like it's the same carpet..is there a home carpet shampooer that I can use? Do I just need to call a professional? Is there any hope? :(
Tell me what else to do? We are stuck here through December!
