POSSIBLE CAUSES OF BAD ODORS IN YOUR HOME

Fire & Smoke

In the case of a house fire, smoke, soot and associated odors can linger long after the flames are extinguished. This means that while you’re trying to restore your home, you could be breathing nasty smoke particles into your lungs, in addition to dealing with the stench.

Smoke and soot residue from nearby wildfires can cause interior and exterior damage your home, too. Wildfire smoke can easily seep into drywall, wood and textiles, and fine, toxic soot can coat and damage a range of materials, leading to stains, residue and permeating odors in
addition to increased health risks.

Water & Mold

Where there are pipes, there is always an opportunity for leakage, water damage and mold growth. If you live in an area prone to natural flooding disasters like hurricanes, tidal swells and tsunamis, you are also at high-risk for water damage. Without immediate remediation, floods and leaks can damage the structure, foundation and integrity of your home, cause a persistent mildew smell, and encourage the growth of pesky, sometimes dangerous mold spores.

Sewage & Biological Sources

As you can imagine, sewage emits a particularly strong odor that you definitely don’t want hanging around your home. When a sewage backup strikes, you want the bacteria-ridden waste material and its accompanying stench removed as soon as possible to prevent coming into contact with harmful pathogens.

These unsavory smells create an invisible threat with the ability to disrupt your life and negatively impact your health. At ServiceMaster Restore, we have the professional products, systems and specialty equipment to remove a wide range of odors and the contaminants that cause them so you can breathe easy again.

DEODORIZATION PROCESS

We use a range of advanced deodorization tools to eliminate odor from your home:

  • Air scrubbers use high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration to remove odorous particles from the air, enhancing the efficiency of cleaning and clearing the air for safe breathing.
  • Thermal fogging neutralizes odor, using a strong deodorizer that penetrates everywhere the smoke traveled.
  • Ozone is an oxidizing agent produced by a portable ozone generator.
  • OdorKlenz® technology contains a natural, effective deodorizing process that removes odors and air particulates using OdorKlenz-Air® cartridges in traditional air scrubbers.
  • Hydroxyl Generators use hydroxyl radicals to eliminate odor from the surrounding areas.
  • OdorKlenz and OdorKlenz-Air are registered trademarks of NanoScale Corporation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS​

IF I SEE MOLD, COULD’NT I JUST TREAT IT MYSELF WITH AN OFF-THE-SHELF SPRAY?

Most non-professional treatments simply cover up odors and possibly kill off surface molds or impurities temporarily. Unfortunately, they can’t penetrate deeper into walls and other areas where molds and mildew originate. Furthermore, such sprays or aerosols often contain harsh chemicals or synthetic ingredients that could be harmful when ingested. Unless the feeding ground of the mold spores is discovered, so the mold can be eliminated at its source, the problem will not be fully resolved.
