Neutralize ammonium sulfanylacetate smell

This morning Mr. Smuna dropped a bottle of iron remover used for auto detailing, breaking it and spilling on our wood floor. It's this stuff: IronX
Here is the MSDS: IronX MSDS
The smell could curl your hair; how can I neutralize it?

We immediately cleaned up with towels and since then I have wet mopped three times with water and once with Method wood floor cleaner. The floors are old and will need refinishing eventually. Although there is no visible sign of the spill, it smells so so so bad. Were you a teenager in the 80s? Did you ever get a home perm in your kitchen? My house smells like that and I would like to understand how long I have to live with this. If it's as long as I had to live with my last perm, I'm going to need to start drinking before dinner.
Volitility for ammonium sulfanylacetate is low, and biodegradability is over 90%. The bottle was small. I don't think we are in danger from exposure, I think we are inconvenienced by gross. If anyone has suggestions for additional cleaning/smell neutralization measures I welcome them.
