SERVPRO of North Mississauga cleaning services: Odour removal

There is not much worse then a lingering terrible smell in your home or business. There are many causes of odours whether tobacco, mould, pet urine, kitchen fire etc… How are you going to get rid of that odour?

SERVPRO can help, our highly trained odour removal specialists have all the knowledge, experience and equipment needed. Besides trauma and crime scene cleanup there are a lot of reasons SERVPRO of North Mississauga may be needed. House fires, floods and other disasters can wreak havoc and cause some serious odour problems for the home or business owner.

Odors do more than cause the stomach to roll. They can carry bacteria, mould spores and chemicals that can cause harms to those who inhale them. They can make a house unliveable and even have it red or yellow tagged.

Some companies use fragrances to cover up bad smells. One of mom’s greatest sayings was that a bad smell can’t be covered up with perfume. Eventually the perfume goes away and the smell is still there. It’s time to invest in the big guns.

Some may ask, why not chlorine? That may also be used, but SERVPRO knows that other tools are needed as well. It’s hard to get chlorine everywhere; some minute corners may be missed. A lot of scent can come from one small, missed place.

One of the tools they use is called an ozone generator. Granting that this isn’t a tool for the casual cleanup, it is essential to get rid of some of the noxious odours that can be left behind after a disaster. The company will be quick to point out that no one can be in the room at that point in time; it is too dangerous.

Hydroxyl generators are another tool that SERVPRO can use to get rid of odours. There is a big benefit to using these generators in that the family and/or business can stay while they are being used. The down side is that it takes three to five days to get rid of the stench.

Insurance companies tend to prefer this method as then they don’t have to pay for hotel bills, restaurants and other amenities that would be needed if the family didn’t get to stay at home. Families tend to like it better because they are more comfortable at home.

One of the best parts of this generator is so effective it can even get rid of the smell of skunks. Anyone who has been around skunk spray or a dead skunk on the roadways knows that this smell is noxious.

The third tool in the SERVPRO odour arsenal is an air filtration device. People with allergies and/or asthma may already be familiar with these devices. They filter out the allergens in the home that affect people. When coping with the aftermath of a fire, these devices help get rid of the particulate matter faster.
