  • Air Scrubbers – Using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, they remove odorous particles from the air, enhancing the efficiency of cleaning and clearing the air for safe breathing.

  • Thermal Fog – Use of thermal fog neutralizes odor, using a strong deodorizer that penetrates everywhere the smoke traveled.

  • Ozone – This oxidizing agent is produced by a portable ozone generator.

What Causes Bad Odors in Your Home?

Fire & Smoke:

In the case of a house fire, smoke, soot, and associated odors can linger long after the flames are extinguished. This means that while you're trying to restore your home, you could be breathing nasty smoke particles into your lungs, in addition to dealing with the stench. Smoke and soot residue from nearby wildfires can cause interior and exterior damage your home, too. Wildfire smoke can easily seep into drywall, wood and textiles, and fine, toxic soot can coat and damage a range of materials, leading to stains, residue and permeating odors with increased health risks.

Water & Mold:

Where there are pipes, there is always an opportunity for leakage, water damage and mold growth. If you live in an area prone to natural flooding disasters like hurricanes, tidal swells and tsunamis, you are also at high-risk for water damage. Without immediate remediation, floods and leaks can damage the structure, foundation and integrity of your home, cause a persistent mildew smell and encourage the growth of pesky, sometimes dangerous mold spores.


Sewage & Biological Sources:


As you can imagine, sewage emits a particularly strong odor that you definitely don't want hanging around your home. When a sewage backup strikes, to prevent coming into contact with harmful pathogens, you want the bacteria-ridden waste material and its accompanying stench removed as soon as possible.

These unsavory smells create an invisible threat with the ability to disrupt your life and negatively impact your health.
