Unpleasant odors from many different sources can take over a home or building and make it difficult to inhabit. Whether the odor is caused by a disaster like a flood or fire or an internal source like cigarettes, it can be very difficult to remove, and household air fresheners and deodorizers alone will not cover them up.
