What Causes Odors?
Fire & Smoke
In the case of a house fire, smoke, soot and associated odors can linger long after the fire is over. Not only do are you left with a building to restore from the fire but smoke can penetrate areas where the fire did not reach. If smoke damage goes untreated, not only does it smell but you could be breathing smoke particles into your lungs. Smoke seeps 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 leaks, water damage, and mold growth. If left untreated, water damage can damage the structure, foundation and integrity of your home or business. It can also cause a persistent mildew smell and encourage the growth of pesky, sometimes dangerous mold spores.
