A clean home makes a good first impression in your New Port Richey, FL home. However, even the cleanest home won’t seem that way if unpleasant scents are present. Some odors require more than what a homeowner can do on their own to remove, so here are some common examples and how the pros can tackle unpleasant odors.
Cigarette Smell Odors
Cigarette smoke can linger for years after the last butt has been extinguished. Pros will clean this using a combination of full ventilation, changing filters, scrubbing walls with trisodium phosphate and priming their surface with a sealant. Further steps include varnishing wood floors and possibly treating the space with ozone.
Water Damage Mitigation
Mold and mildew form quickly after water from a flood or fire control. These noxious odors don’t just smell bad, they can also bother asthma and allergy sufferers. Professionals use air scrubbers and thermal fogging to provide fresh-smelling environments.
Biohazard Mold Remediation
Applying commercial-grade products may clear away mold without damaging property if you catch it early enough. Professionals use environmentally friendly cleaners in problem areas and point out future trouble spots after inspection.
Fire Damage Odors
A list of odor-producing circumstances wouldn’t be complete without mentioning fire, which can add a smoky odor to your home, even when the damage isn’t severe. This is because contaminants seep into floors, walls and carpeting; professionals use high-grade equipment to remove these odors.
Sewer odors and animal waste may daunt the casual do-it-yourselfer, but not the seasoned professional. While the first step is to remove the animal from the area, there is still waste to contend with. Experts dressed in protective suits clean away pathogens to restore your home or business to freshness.
