What do odor control services include?

All environments, from houses to commercial spaces, are susceptible to unfavorable odors for many reasons. More than just covering the stench with air fresheners, odor control services detect the source and finally treat or eliminate them. 

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

Home odor 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 and fumigate carpets and upholstery.

Cigarette smoke odor removal

Cigarette smoke tends to linger on clothes and all sorts of fabric, as well as sofas and curtains. When you book an odor removal service, you'll receive more than just eliminating unwanted cigarette odors. 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 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 odors.

Pet odor removal

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

If you're bothered by a moist and musty smell wafting from somewhere, you may want to consider reaching out to odor cleaning specialists. Keep in mind that damp odors 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 mold build-up from occurring in the future.
