What is Odor Control?

You deserve comfort in all aspects of your home—including its smell. No one should have to ignore lingering odors from mildew, mold, smoke, garbage cans, or accidents from furry friends. That’s where odor removal comes in.

An odor control specialist will identify and remove the root cause of any odors existing in your home. Several of the services we offer at Royal Renovations employ odor control and removal tactics, including:

  • Content Restoration
  • Sewer and Drain Backups
  • Mold Remediation
  • Storm Damage
  • Trauma Scene Cleanup
  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Fire Damage
  • Water Damage

When Should I Get Odor Control Services?

No matter how clean you are, an odor control specialist may still be required for hard-to-find or deep-set smells in porous materials, like carpeted floors or drywall. Additionally, many common cleaning supplies that claim to be “odor removing” will only eliminate the problem by covering it up. These chemicals can also decrease the air quality inside your home and can harm pets and children. Air fresheners are the same—they mask unpleasant smells without attacking the issue at the source.

A common misconception about odor control services is that they’re just for smells inside the home—this is incorrect. A professional odor control specialist will remove odors from personal items, as well as exterior and interior surfaces and subsurfaces. It doesn’t matter where the smell is; a well-trained odor control specialist should be able to find the source.

How Do Odor Control Services Work?

While the details will differ from business to business, many odor control specialists follow the rough process outlined below:

  1. Consultation with the homeowner in their own home to determine the source and severity of the work
  2. Determine how to remove the smell and quote the homeowner
  3. Removal of the odor with deep cleaning and proven, safe chemical treatments for hard and porous surfaces
  4. Outline a plan with the homeowner about future steps that can be taken to mitigate future odors in the home
