One of the most disheartening things that can occur following a construction or restoration project is discovering a lingering odor. Unfortunately, this occurs with relative frequency because of the porous nature of many building materials (such as wood, drywall, and more).
At ServiceMaster by Metzler, we provide property owners in Mt. Prospect, IL, with odor removal services to address these situations. We also eliminate smells that originate from more isolated incidents (like pets or undetected deaths), and clean affected air spaces.
Causes of Odors
There are a number of reasons why odors may be lingering on your property. In the case of construction and restoration projects, porous materials tend to be the culprit. This is because they absorb and trap various smells for lengthy periods of time. If your property suffers from fire or water damage, there is a very real possibility that odors will linger. The same is true in instances of mold growth or exposure to smoke.
Additionally, there are isolated events that can lead to odors in residential and commercial settings. Pets can obviously create a variety of different smells depending on the types of animals you own. Wild animals can create similar havoc by making your home theirs. Undetected deaths are unfortunately rather common, as well. In each of these cases, the problem usually starts off small, but expands if left unaddressed.
