Top Odour Control related questions

Not necessarily. If you have some of the essential cleaning tools or any equipment that might help speed up or improve your odour control service, you are free to lend it to your cleaner. Otherwise, they can bring their cleaning materials with them on site. For air fresheners, odour neutralisers, and other cleaning solvents, you can instruct your cleaner to pick them up at the nearest local store.

Before your scheduled odour control service, it's ideal to do minimal cleaning and arranging so your cleaner can just proceed with their task immediately. Secure all your valuable and fragile materials in one place so they won't be misplaced while they clean and deodorise areas. Since the job involves single or multiple applications of odour refreshers and eliminators, it's also a good idea to keep your children or pets away until the service is finished.

Definitely! If something smells off from your new apartment, you can also book a Tasker for a prompt odour removal before or after you have moved in. They can inspect your kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms, and find anything suspicious and treat them right away. In case you need a hand with cleaning upon moving in, there are also plenty of reliable cleaners who can make your house transition as smooth as possible.

You're not required to be physically present during the service. In case you have more important priorities to attend to, your cleaner can proceed with cleaning your place as scheduled. Just make sure to coordinate with them on how you'll give them access to your home or workplace. It's also wise to provide them with clear instructions, especially if there are some items that you don't want them to touch.

Yes! If you're unsure of what to do with all the accumulated rubbish from your odour removal service, you can also book a Tasker to collect and dispose of your junk for you. They can handle all sorts of household and commercial garbage, including food, pet, and garden waste. These are either delivered to recycling facilities or landfills, but specialists can also turn some scraps into compost.

Yes! For this particular service, we recommend hiring a skilled and trained car washer or mechanic instead. Since they are more familiar with automobile parts and components, they can help you better with eliminating such weird odours and also keep an eye out for any hidden car issues. In case you're unable to bring your vehicle to a workshop, we can connect you with experts who can work on your car from your home or garage.

What do odour control services include?

All environments, from houses to commercial spaces, are susceptible to unfavourable odours due to a lot of reasons. More than just covering the stench with air fresheners, odour control services detect the source and finally treat or eliminate them. 

Taskers also know the best cleaning techniques and odour control systems that will permanently remove any foul odour. If you're booking an odour removal for the first time, here's an overview of what you can expect:

Home odour removal

Your house can get smelly very quickly, especially if you have any reeking garbage lying around. If the stench is coming from your kitchen, cleaners can clear out your trash bin, dispose of rotten fruits, vegetables, and other food items, and clean your appliances like ovens and refrigerators.

Your bathroom could also be a culprit, particularly toilets if they're poorly maintained. To combat the smell, they can help clean toilet bowls, sinks, and even the damp tiles and walls if needed. You can also commission Taskers to work on bedrooms and the living room, as well as fumigate carpets and upholstery.

Cigarette smoke odour removal

Cigarette smoke tends to linger on clothes and all sorts of fabric, as well as sofas and curtains. When you book an odour removal service, you'll receive more than just eliminating unwanted cigarette odour. Your cleaner can also assist with vacuuming stray cigarette butts and cleaning ashtrays. 

Plus, they know the safest way to remove airborne particles and cigarette toxins that are floating around the room. You can also book the service to freshen up hotels, cafes and bars, and more commercial spaces that are likewise susceptible to cigarette smoke odours.

Pet odour removal

As much as we love and value our pets, it's inevitable for them to leave weird odours around the house. While it usually comes from their urine and faeces, the smell can also come from dirty litter boxes, grubby cages, and unwashed toys. Your cleaner can utilise safe cleaning procedures that can reduce and control any pet-related odour without compromising the health of your furry friends. They can even apply special air neutralisers and odour eliminators to mitigate the smell.

Once your home is stench-free, why not get your pets groomed as well? Not only will they look and smell great, but they'll also get to fully enjoy their newly-cleaned pet bowls, beds, and other accessories!

Damp odour removal

If you're bothered by a moist and musty smell wafting from somewhere, you may want to consider reaching out to odour cleaning specialists. Keep in mind that damp odours are usually a sign of something hazardous that only certified and qualified experts can safely handle. 

If you have no idea where the smell is coming from, your specialist can inspect the area and rectify the root cause of the problem. They can also help establish healthy ventilation to reduce moisture and humidity, as well as prevent fungi or mould build-up from occurring in the future.

Remove pet urine odour from 2 carpeted bedrooms

$150

Woolloongabba QLD, Australia

25th Feb 2024

We just moved into an apartment which we believe the carpets weren't cleaned and the previous tenants owned a pet. The carpets smell of pet urine. I am hoping someone can clean these two carpets. Unfortunately, furniture has already been moved into the bedrooms. I can try and move as much furniture out but the beds will need to stay so the cleaning will have to be done around them. The two bedrooms are approx. 3.4m x 3.4m. I'm only looking for someone who can guarantee the odour removal using something like P.U.R.T.

We purchased a lounge and the person selling failed to tell us how bad the couch smells of her dog. It’s so bad it’s making my whole living Room smell of a dirty dog and we don’t have pets. I also have small children and am heavily pregnant. I need it completely steam cleaned and deotorised to get the smell completely out. I’m not sure if it can be done but I spent alot of money on the lounge so I’m hoping it can be. I have attatched photos of the couch 3 seater + ottoman - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 23 November 2023

Bruce assured me my lounge stench would be removed however it smells exactly the same. Was basically a waste of money unfortunately I tried to contact him to let him know as he assured me he would come back or doesn’t work don’t pay and he has not acknowledged my message. Really unfortunate wouldn’t use him again.
