Types of Odors We Treat

What’s making your home or business smell bad? We deodorize contents affected by the following:

  • Smoke from building fires
  • Mold and mildew
  • Biohazards, including bodily fluids and animal waste
  • Protein odors, including sour milk, meat, and fish
  • Pet odors
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Skunk spray

Our Odor Elimination Techniques

Complete deodorization requires multiple steps. Your damaged property may need one or more of these basic techniques:

  • Masking: While not a permanent solution, masking is a way to make a smelly space more bearable to work in. It involves using fragrances to mask the odor, but it does not remove the source of the smell.
  • Disinfecting: Disinfectants eliminate odors by killing the microorganisms responsible for the smell. This method is effective against musty, moldy odors.
  • Absorbing: Baking soda is a common household odor absorber. This and other more powerful odor absorbing products stabilize the pH balance of stinky substances to eliminate the smell at the source.
  • Oxidizing: Chemicals derived from peroxide compounds oxidize and decompose odor-causing bacteria found in urine, mold, and mildew.
  • Pairing: When a pairing agent binds with the molecule of a malodorous substance, the agent transfers some of its chemical properties, transforming the molecule into a non-smelly compound. Tobacco and smoke odors usually respond well to this deodorization method.
  • Digesting: Also known as enzyme deodorants, digesters are bacteria that produce enzymes to consume decaying proteins and organic contaminants. This treatment is used against biohazard waste and protein odors, though the digesters must remain in contact with the odor source for an extended time to be effective.
  • Sealing: Agents that “lock in” odor molecules are called sealants. Their purpose is to prevent odorous gases from evaporating, so you can’t smell them. Sealing is a method often used to salvage wood, concrete, and subflooring that have been contaminated with smoke or urine.
