Default Skunk Smell in House

On Monday , around 930pm I let my dog out to use the bathroom before going to bed and she ran into a skunk in our back yard and got sprayed. She came in the house and laid on her blanket.

I didn't see any of it happen but smelt it immediately and put her outside.
She was in the house less than 1 minute and only laid on her blanket but my house reeks of skunk. My furniture stinks, all of my families clothes smell, mattresses smell, people smell. I had the carpet cleaned and deodorized immediately on Tuesday and it worked for about 2 hours before the smell came back. Anything she touched has already been thrown out.

I've tried airing the house out for hours and it helps briefly but then the smell returns. Tried vinegar in shallow dishes in every room, boiled vinegar, washed the dog 3 times with a solution of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dawn dish soap (family also washed ourselves with this solution). Thrown clothes away etc and nothing has helped. Dog has remained outside or in the garage since this happened.

Should I file a homeowners insurance claim? I'm frustrated and angry because we can't get the smell out of anything.

Any suggestions?

An ozone generator might be able to knock out the residual smell. I’d try an ozone shock treatment. You have to get all people, pets, and plants out of the house during treatment.
