Toilet seal problems

We had the ball in our Dometic replaced, and apparently when the toilet was pulled and replaced, the seal was rolled over. the result was flush water leaking into the area under where the toilet sits. The area had become saturated with flush water. It's a raised area made of plywood covered with carpet, and it took a few days for the soaked carpet to dry. Obviously the plywood was soaked too, and now there is a very noticeable urine odor. Does any body have any suggestions as to how to eliminate the odor? Any and all suggestions wil be welcomed.

I would begin with removing the carpet permanantly. A mixture of bleach and water in a well ventilated coach is where to start. Spraying the entire floor area, let dry and spray again and again until the odor is gone. If the plywood is damaged then that too should be removed and replaced. Replace with tile. and new seals
