Common Sources of Odors that We Can Help With
Biological Sources: These include odors produced by living organisms such as humans, pets, bacteria, mold, and decaying organic matter. Examples include pet odors, urine, feces, and rotting food.
Environmental Sources: Environmental factors can contribute to odors. For instance, smoke from tobacco and cannabis/marijuana smoke, fire, or cooking can leave lingering odors. Chemical pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), can also cause unpleasant smells.
Mold and Mildew: Damp environments provide a breeding ground for mold and mildew, resulting in musty and unpleasant odors. Mold growth can occur in bathrooms, basements, or areas with water damage.
Chemicals and Solvents: Certain chemicals and solvents emit strong odors that can be overwhelming. Examples include paint, cleaning agents, gasoline, and industrial chemicals.
Garbage and Waste: Trash cans, dumpsters, and waste storage areas can produce foul odors due to decomposing organic matter.
Sewage and Plumbing Issues: Problems with sewage systems, drains, or plumbing can result in offensive odors that often indicate a larger problem.
