Vinegar helps. I had a room with cement floors that I used to put our dogs in and they would occasionally pee or poop in there. I used vinegar and arm & Hammer powder laundry detergent with a push broom as a big scrub brush, then hosed it out. Hopefully your basement is cement and has a drain!
DON'T USE BLEACH. You will all have to evacuate the house until the fumes are gone, and I have NO IDEA how long that takes, but I'd say days or longer.

Clean them with bleach. Even if they are carpets put a little in the shampooer
