Odor in carpeting in homes and buildings arises from many sources that may include animal urine, disaster contaminates, moisture problems or just plain soil. Routine cleaning, using Certified Firms and Services that automatically remove the sources of general soiling odors should help this situation. Pet urine decontamination normally requires more specialized deodorizing techniques. To remove musty odor associated with moisture, ultimately it’s important to identify and correct the moisture (high humidity) intrusion problem. Odor associated with disaster contaminates (smoke, trauma events) requires highly specialized procedures and techniques.
Odor removal involves four general principles:
- Removing the source as soon as possible
- Cleaning the affected surfaces
- Treating the affected areas with appropriate counteractants
- Sealing the restored areas as necessary
Certified professionals are trained and experienced in dealing with carpet-related odor. They have the detection tools, specialized agents, equipment and experience necessary to deal with odors of all types and kinds.
