Is Odor Removal for Your Baxter Home Part of Professional Remediation Services?

When you’re dealing with property damage in your home or office, chances are you’re solely focused on the visual damage before you. Most property owners fail to realize that odors are a big part of the problem and, therefore, odor removal becomes a necessary part of the remediation process. Of course, odors don’t just stem from recent property damage. There are other, more internal factors that can plague your home with terrible smells. These factors may include years of cooking, pets and even pests living in the walls. These smells must be dealt with before they worsen and your health takes a turn for the worse.

Odor Removal — Tracking the Source

The first step in addressing a foul odor in your home is to find the source. If you’ve recently endured property damage, such as a fire or flood, then chances are high that your odors stem from that ordeal. If not, then tracking the problem is often slightly more problematic. It’s a job best left to the experts.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself regarding the source of a terrible smell:

  • Was there a recent fire, smoke or water damage disaster?
  • Is there a history of pest infestations?
  • Did the puppy soil the carpet?
  • How long since the HVAC system was serviced?
  • Is there humidity or moisture in the air?


These questions often point towards one or more problems within the home that could produce a terrible stench. If there is humidity or moisture, for example, then it’s likely you have mold growing somewhere. Mold produces a strong, musty odor the closer you are to the growth. It’s one of the earliest signs of a problem.

When to Call for Professional Odor Removal

If you’re dealing with a foul odor in your home and you don’t even want to be in the same room for very long, then something must be done right away. For that, you’ll likely need the help of a top-rated restoration company nearby.

Many odor removal or odor control products sold in the supermarket fail to really address the problem. You don’t need to mask the smell, you need to address the source promptly.

A local restoration company will bring in advanced restoration equipment to track and eliminate odors in your home for good. If mold or smoke damage are the cause, then they’ll address those, too.
