In the aftermath of a home disaster, it can be easy to overlook any lingering odors. Some may be mild, and others may be hard to place, which makes them that much harder to successfully remove.

Home disasters can produce a wide variety of odors from airborne chemicals, gasses or tiny particles in the air. In order to successfully remove the odor, our team tackles it with a few different approaches.
Some of these include:
Masking agents. While we work on identifying the source of the odor and focus on creating a plan, we can apply a masking agent that helps make the environment more pleasant for all of us.
Filtration agents. We can also use our filtration compounds that can actually suck the smell right out of your carpets, furniture and even the air you breathe.
Disinfectants and sanitizers. We can also tackle the smell with professional disinfectants to ensure that the space is free of bacteria or fungus that could encourage the smell to return.
1. Remove the source. We can only remove the entire odor if we know exactly where the odor is coming from! Once we locate the source, we remove it from your home and also take out anything that it affected.
2. Clean residue from surfaces. The job is not complete without sanitization! Any part that is not fully cleaned could introduce bacteria back into the area and start the smell all over again.
3. Recreate the odor-causing conditions. This thorough step allows us to recreate the original environment that caused the smell in the first place. We employ deodorizers that help indicate if we have left any particles behind.
4. Seal exposed surfaces. Troublesome projects might require this step if the odor is really extensive or our other methods are not cost-effective. We can completely seal off the affected area to prevent the scent from traveling.
