Tackling the Odor Problem in Your Home | SERVPRO® of Hayward
Day or night, we are proud to offer our professional cleaning and restoration services to the Hayward area. Part of our cleaning process includes tackling any odor problems in your home or business!
Damage of any kind can create odor problems, whether it be from the start of mold growth or residual soot after a fire. If you start to notice a bad odor that you just can’t get rid of, give us a call! Our thorough approach to odor removal can ensure that your lingering odor is a thing of the past.
Odors can be caused by all kinds of things! Airborne chemicals, gasses or tiny particles left in the air can all cause lingering smells. In each case, we approach the problem thoroughly to make sure that we completely get rid of the odor.
Some of our methods are:
Masking agents. While this method isn’t usually our first approach, we can use our masking products to create a more pleasant environment for you while we prepare our other methods.
Filtration agents. Our filtration products can pull the smell right out of your furniture, walls and floor! When applied, they can also pull the odor particles directly from the air.
Disinfectants and sanitizers. This is an important step! We make sure to sanitize the space to prevent bacteria or fungus from growing so the odor cannot come back.
Here is how the odor removal process can look:
1. Remove the source. We have to know exactly what is causing the odor so we can remove the source from your home. This includes anything that has been compromised by the odor as well, and everything affected will be removed from your home.
2. Clean residue from surfaces. Once the source is removed, we work on cleaning and sanitizing your space. This step ensures that we get every odor particle!
3. Recreate the odor-causing conditions. This step can help make sure we didn’t miss anything. We employ a deodorizer to recreate the original environment that helps identify any lingering smells.
4. Seal exposed surfaces. If your odor is severe, we also have the ability to seal off the affected area to keep the smell from traveling further while we assess our next steps.
No matter what is causing your odor, we are here for you! Our team will evaluate your home and create a plan that is specifically tailored to your home’s needs.
If you experience an odor or other damage inside your home or business, call us at any time, 24⁄7. We have the training and equipment to quickly get your property back in operation.
