We had a cat with behavior issues that pretty thoroughly ruined the carpet and some of the baseboards in our basement. We're getting the basement recarpeted and replacing the baseboards, but I've heard that it can be tricky to keep the smell from coming back. It's pretty bad and in multiple spots so I want to make sure we do everything possible before the new carpet goes down. We're planning to put Killz down on the spots after the old carpet is removed, but were wondering if there were any other steps that would be good to take to make sure that we get the smell totally out.
