Don’t DIY: Why You Need Professional Odor Cleanup  

bad smell

Having a home that smells clean isn't just about impressing guests. It’s also about maintaining a healthy indoor air quality, eliminating not just the unpleasant odors, but also the airborne elements causing those odors that could be taking a toll on your lungs and the rest of your body.

Why DIY Doesn't Work

It may be tempting to try to save a few dollars by getting rid of these odors yourself, and there are plenty of products on the market that claim they can help. With some superficial odors like cooking smells or general mustiness, some of these products can be helpful, especially when used alongside a regular, deep-cleaning regimen.

But for other odors, including stubborn pet odors, smoke, mildew or mold odors from dampness or water damage, you need the kind of odor removal services that are only available from trained and experienced professionals.

Get Rid of Odors at Their Source

Professional odor removal doesn’t mask odors, and it doesn’t just treat superficial smells that cling to the surfaces of your drapes or furniture. Instead, odor removal experts use advanced techniques and powerful agents designed to get to the root of odors, eliminating them at their source.

That means not only will your home or business smell better - fresher, cleaner and more welcoming - but the air will actually be cleaned of impurities and particulate matter that can trigger asthma and allergies as well.

    In our situation at Harmony Grove Baptist in Canton, when our insurance company was first called, Chad Franklin came soon after they were notified. He was very cordial and told us upfront what he felt that we would have to get to work on right away. The next day the big fans were brought and dehumidifiers were started. After that everyone that we met that came to help us were very caring. They showed their concern as if they were going through the terrible trauma we were. Each person that came to help was very trustworthy and I, myself, felt as if I had found a new friend for life. What a great crew of people working to help us feel better and get the job done. We would like to welcome each member of ServiceMaster to our church anytime. Thank you so much for the service to us. Friends for life.
