The team of certified fire damage restoration, water damage restoration, and cleaning professionals at SERVPRO of Waxahachie / Midlothian witness all types of property damage disasters on a daily basis. Water and fire damage often causes obvious devastation to a property, and the urgency of the situation is clearly visible. However, in the case of foul odors in a home or business, the underlying cause is not always apparent, and as a result, the issue might not be dealt with promptly. The best-case scenario for dealing with an odor issue is to call in an odor removal and cleaning company to remediate the unpleasant smell.

Odors: Good and Bad

According to a recent poll, some of the best smells in the world include fresh air, vanilla, coffee, barbecue, melted chocolate, bacon, freshly cut grass, a campfire, and popcorn. Freshly baked bread and cookies received an honorable mention.

On the other hand, some of the most offensive odors included human waste, decomposing animal carcass, skunk spray, household garbage, raw sewage, pet urine, and cigarette smoke.

Odors that are difficult to remove include:

  • smoke and soot from a cooking or electrical fire in the home
  • pet odors, such as urine and feces from dogs, cats, or birds
  • skunk spray
  • cigarette smoke
  • mold odor from a mold infestation or water damage
  • dead animals in the attic, wall, or crawl space
  • sewage spill
  • oil, grease, and gasoline odor on carpet, flooring, and cloth furniture
  • odors from drug use and drug manufacturing

Several factors are involved in odor removal, including the chemical composition of the odor-causing substance, the surface on which the substance is located, and how long the substance has been allowed to stay on the surface.

The need for odor remediation is universal. At some point in time, every home, every business, and every vehicle will need industrial-strength, professional-grade odor remediation.

The IICRC writes about the training program, “The Odor Control Technician (OCT) certification covers olfaction and odor, odor sources, detection process, theory of odor control, equipment, chemical options, and applications. Upon completing the certification, students will know how to address odors caused by biological sources such as decomposition, urine contamination, mold, combustion sources such as fire and smoke damage, and chemical sources such as fuel oil spills or volatile organic chemicals.”

IICRC Odor Control Certification is comprehensive in scope. It covers the science of smell and the chemistry of odors, and technicians are introduced to the causes and sources of odors. SERVPRO trainees receive industry-leading training in odor detection technology.
