Air freshener companies build their entire profit on making homes smell good, but these commercial air fresheners often only cover up bad smells, and the cause of the odor still lurks behind the candle or spray. Most odors can only be fully eliminated with professional odor removal. ServiceMaster Absolute offers odor removal in San Diego, CA for a range of causes.

Bad home odors can come from many average household sources, such as pets, food spills, children, or tobacco. They can also can come from more serious sources that should be addressed as soon as possible.

Post-fire: If there has been a fire in your home—whether small or large—there is probably an acrid, sooty odor left behind. Part of our fire damage restoration services is complete ash and soot removal to get rid of carcinogenic odors from carbon and air pollutants.

Post-water: Flood damage or consistently high humidity can cause strange odors in the home. Essentially, any presence of excess water creates a perfect environment for mold to grow. Musky or sour odors are characteristic of health-hazardous mold. 

Hoarding: This is a less common occurrence than many other sources of odors, but can make a building just as toxic and foul-smelling as a fire or flood. If you are dealing with a home that has previously been a hoarding site, our trauma cleanup services can eliminate fetid odors and other dangerous situations.

Crime Scene: Also out of the ordinary, crime scenes are a potential source of offensive odors. Stench and odors can come from bio-hazardous materials, chemicals, bacteria, and mold growth. With professional crime scene cleanup, the danger of a health-harming odor can be effectively taken care of.

Sometimes home odors come from seriously dangerous sources, both for health and home quality. Contact ServiceMaster Absolute today if you suspect you need odor removal in San Diego, CA.
