Rotten sub floor

I have been replacing a few small areas of rotten plywood and can't seem to get rid of the mildew smell. Any ideas on how to eliminate this odor.

My stinky smell was sub-rotten subfloor. Of course the walls stunk just as bad.

Kilz Original + new tile on bathroom floor.


Airstream Forums - 1976 31' Sovereign

I painted all of the floor except the bathroom floor. There's no odor from the wood floor now at all.

All of the aluminum interior walls were washed with TSP. All of the drapes, wood walls, cabinets, and upholstry was removed and replaced. All fixtures and all appliances were removed and replaced with new.

My trailer looks like new inside and smells like new inside.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
