Commercial Odor Removal
Next to the home, the workplace is the environment where most people spend the majority of their time. When bad odors are present in the workplace, it can make an otherwise enjoyable job a very unpleasant one. Because odors are invisible molecules in the air, it can sometimes be difficult to get rid of them. The key to removing an odor is to find the source of the problem. Only then can the odor be properly dealt with.
Types of Odors Found in Buildings
Common odors found in commercial buildings can be related to air conditioner and heating systems, natural gas, electrical wiring, plumbing, building insulation, chemicals and many other sources. Many times older carpets or furnishings can be the carriers of bad smells. Finding the source of smells can sometimes be very easy if the source is obvious, but many times it takes a professional to track down the odor. Most people have had the experience of walking into a building and smelling that undeniable musty odor that is associated with mildew and mold. What some may not realize is that mold contamination can cause more problems than just the obvious unpleasant odor. Although not all types of mold are dangerous, there are some that can cause serious respiratory problems, asthma, and even neurological disorders. Although the actual odor may not cause these problems, it is important to realize that the odor is an indicator that points to the source of the problem.
Odor Removal Procedures
Because there are so many different causes of bad odors, removal can be somewhat complex. One thing is for certain — since many sources of odor, such as mold and mildew, can be dangerous, the problem should be dealt with quickly and in a professional manner. The odor removal procedure includes assessing the area that has been affected, identifying the problem and planning the appropriate course of action. How the odor is dealt with depends on the nature, seriousness and extent of the damage. Whatever the case you can expect that special cleaning equipment will be set up. This includes HEPA vacuuming and air scrubbers that will filter out the air that has been contaminated and replace it with clean air. After that the affected area will be deodorized and odor control equipment will be set up. Finally, a detailed report will be given concerning the type of treatment that has been applied.
If you notice a bad odor that doesn't go away at your place of business, keep in mind that it could indicate a serious problem. Whether it's something as simple as dirty carpet, or a more complex issue like mold contamination, the real key is found in finding the source. Calling in a professional is the best way to get a proper diagnosis followed up by treatment and then preventative measures in order to keep the problem from occurring again.
