Here we go: Carpet Cleaning DIY-Attacking VERY tough odor
Locate the soiled (sprayed or urinated on) area
Once the problem is pinpointed, lift the carpet (most carpet is pretty easy to peel away-just pick the closest corner to the soiled spot).
Cut out the padding from the soiled area. Don’t be scared, most stores that sell carpet will sell padding separately and at a very affordable price. You may even get lucky and be given some scrap pieces (be sure to match it with your original padding)
Clean the floorboards that were affected with urine with a disinfectant cleaner of your choice. If the soiled area is located near the wall or in a corner, make sure to clean the walls and baseboards around it as well if you happen to have a cat that may have sprayed.
Use an oil based stain blocker/primer like kilz to cover the affected floorboards as well as the baseboards and wall if necessary. (At very LEAST two coats)
After the kilz is completely dry, place the new padding over it and paint over the kilz on your baseboards and wall with its matching paint if you had to go that route.
