What is odor removal?

Odor can be caused by many things such as: pet urine, cigarette smells, leftover food, old carpet, the list goes on and on. Odor removal is exactly what it sounds - eliminating foul odors in your home or property. 

Before deodorization you can expect a technician to inspect your home. Technicians are trained to properly identify and locate odors. This is to ensure foul smells are completely removed. A deodorizer is then used to eliminate the smell, it is meant to neutralize the smell.

Smells are typically heightened in humidity. If you have the slightest odor in your home you will most likely identify it during rain showers. High temperatures aid in penetrating smells into surfaces. This is why we recommend having a cool home if you are smelling bad odors.

Some of the most common causes of odor are:

  • Fire or smoke losses
  • Mildew damaged caused by a flood or water loss
  • Pet or wildlife waste
  • Smoke or cigarette stains
  • Spoiled food
  • Air duct contamination
  • Biohazard

When you have identified odor make sure to schedule a deodorization as soon as possible. Odors are also great indicators of other issues within a home. Contact your nearest remediation or cleaning company for an estimate or suggestions.
