But how do we get rid of odors that linger after these terrible events?

Here’s what you need to know.

Odor Removal: What You Need to Know After a Disaster

After a disaster, we’ll dive into the multi-step process that gets rid of the lingering odors that can interrupt your enjoyment of your home. It involves:

  • Removing the source of the smell
  • Proper ventilation
  • Complete cleaning
  • Treatment with counteractants, when appropriate

Removing the Source

We’ll remove the source of the odor to stop it from becoming any worse. This is one of the most important steps in the process, because if you leave what was causing the issue in the first place, you’ll never eradicate the smell completely.

Proper Ventilation

In addition to high-powered fans and other tools we use to remove odors, we’ll open the windows and doors to give that tainted air a place to go. This does a tremendous amount for removing odors in your home after a disaster!

Complete Cleaning

Like removing the source of the odor, a complete cleaning helps ensure that anything that’s holding more odor gets cleared out.

Treatment With Counteractants

Some things are able to counteract bad odors, and if they’re appropriate in your home, we’ll use them. This includes things like disinfectants, vinegar, ammonia and enzymes, as well as other chemicals that can make a big difference to stop the odor in its tracks.
