There seems to be no end of sources for unpleasant odors these days. Genoa is no more at risk for them than any other town, but every home occasionally has its problems. It may be the obvious strong smells left over from grease fire flare-ups or other types of fires that have caused little physical damage but left smoke residue on hard-to-reach surfaces. Days or weeks after the incident, those odors are permeating the house as some of the chemicals in the smoke react with the surfaces they cover. You shouldn’t have to tolerate caustic odors in your home in Genoa. Let ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip deodorize your Kishwaukee Valley area home.
Fire-related odors can get everywhere smoke can settle – inside cupboards and closets, in air ducting, and on furniture, drapes, or clothing. But smoke isn’t the only major source we encounter in odor removal work. Pet odors can also permeate a home. Families that have multiple animals tend to have more accidents. When litter boxes are full, cats can retaliate. Dogs sometimes can’t wait to be let outdoors. Carpets, rugs, flooring, and corners of furniture all take on urine odors. Animals sometimes pick an out-of-the-way area of a room, and homeowners won’t notice the problem until it has intensified.
Another need for odor control occurs in homes or apartments that have been subject to hoarding. The collection of materials and lack of cleaning for years often leaves odd odors throughout a premises. Tobacco smoke is another tough odor than can stay in a home for years. Other smells include sewer odors if you’ve had backups or other plumbing issues, the odor of electric motors that have burned out, or long-standing odors of pungent foods. Any or all of these odors will decrease your quality of life, may cause allergies, and will lower your home’s value unless you do something about it now.
If you experience any of these problems in your Genoa home or business, ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip is your best option for professional odor removal and deodorization. Give us a call.
