Sniffing Out Odor Control and Removal
It's one thing if your home has a little clutter or disorganization. Spending an hour to straighten your home for guests or a party is a natural activity for most homeowners. When the invisible, invasive force of a nasty odor hits your home, on the other hand, it can be a much bigger problem than a quick cleaning will fix. Each odor must be attacked in a different way to ensure the effective removal of the odor. Diligence, persistence, and prudence must all be practiced to gain odor control without ruining the odor-infested surface.
Carpet Odor Removal Carpet odor removal can be a hit or miss project. Discovering the cause of the odor can help prevent ineffective treatments. If your carpet odor is caused by pets and the pet byproducts haven't saturated the carpet padding, a simple steam cleaning and pet deodorizer will often do the trick. If your carpet odor is caused by bacteria, however, steam cleaning may actually make the odor worse if you end up spreading the bacteria throughout the carpet without killing it. If the odor has penetrated the carpet padding, you may have considerable trouble with odor removal. Reputable carpet cleaning services attend seminars to keep abreast of the latest products and techniques.
Keep in mind, too, that hard surface flooring can also be vulnerable to odors and should be treated just as delicately and meticulously as carpet. Steam cleaning is often still the way to go (use an attachment designed for hard surface flooring), but the cleaning product must have a compatible pH level or you run the risk of ruining your floor. You may have to run the steam cleaner and deodorizer multiple times for difficult odors, and in the end, you may still require the expertise of a professional.
Septic Tank Odor Control and Remove all It can take some considerable maintenance to make your septic tank run smoothly, and even if reasonably maintained tanks can cause an odor during the summer when open windows or your air conditioning unit drags air inside your home. Worse yet, your backyard BBQs may be utterly ruined. Even before your waste water hits your septic tank or sewer system, odors can infiltrate your home through a kind of backwash. In order for waste water to be drained, displaced air must be filtered from your home. Cheaper roof vent systems may not be able to completely filter this air, leading to odor control problems
