What Causes Bad Odors in Your Home?

The odor removal experts at ServiceMaster Quality Restoration Services are equipped to fully assess and safely eliminate odors caused by:

Fire & Smoke

In the event 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 harmful 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 to 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 that will require smoke odor removal services.

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 and foundation of your home, cause a persistent mildew smell, and encourage the growth of potentially 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 need 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 Quality Restoration Services, we have professional products, systems, and specialty equipment to remove a wide range of odors and the contaminants that cause them so you can breathe easily again.

Pet Odor

Having pets at home can bring immense joy, but it often comes with the challenge of managing pet-related odors. The scent from pet accidents, such as urine or feces, can be stubborn and pervasive. Even with diligent cleaning, these odors can penetrate deep into carpets, upholstery, and other materials, making it difficult to eliminate them completely with conventional cleaning methods. Additionally, the natural oils in a pet’s fur can sometimes create a distinct, lingering smell in your living spaces. To ensure a fresh-smelling home free from pet-related odors, specialized cleaning, and deodorizing techniques may be necessary, especially in cases where the odors have permeated porous surfaces.

Cigarette Smoke

Cigarette smoke can pose a particularly persistent and challenging odor problem for indoor environments. Not only does it adhere to surfaces like walls, carpets, and furniture, but it can also seep into the HVAC system and ductwork, spreading the odor throughout the entire house. Over time, this can lead to the formation of a yellowish-brown film on walls and ceilings. The compounds in cigarette smoke can also pose health risks, as they are known to contain numerous toxic chemicals, including carcinogens. Eliminating the smell of cigarette smoke requires specialized cleaning methods and thorough ventilation to ensure a fresh and healthy indoor environment.
