Odor Control in El Dorado Hills

1/12/2021 (Permalink)

hallway carpet in process of removal, has several brown ring stains Customer needed their home in El Dorado Hills to be deodorized to remove the odor due to cat urine in the carpet and carpet pad.

You just recently bought a home and noticed a strong odor in the house. Turns out the previous homeowner had pets. While there are no doubt furry friends bring a lot of happiness, fun, and excitement into our lives, the pungent odors and unsightly stains come with the territory of having a four-legged friend. With pet training accidents, the stench can easily settle in carpets, furniture, and curtains around your home. Accidents happen, but that does not mean you have to tolerate the smell. 

So, how do you get rid of pet stains and smells in carpet? 

Although you may be able to clean the pet stain and to the naked eye the stain can look clean, but you may find the smell lingers afterward. This is due to small enzymes of the stain being left in the carpet. 

There are chemicals and common household items that can help with odor control. Pet odor neutralizers and baking soda. The baking soda will do a good job of lifting the pet smells from the carpet, but it is extremely hard to get it all. 

If pet odor neutralizers or baking soda techniques do not completely remove the odor, you can reach out to SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville for a thorough carpet clean. Our technicians specialize in carpet odor control and since odors come from numerous sources, our approach is to use various methods to neutralize them. 

Oftentimes, the stains can seep past the top layer of carpet, and soak into the carpet pad and the subfloor. We can ensure that the scent no longer remains a problem for you. We at SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville have the right products, advanced machinery, and cleaning experience to take care of all your odor and carpet cleaning needs! Call us today at 916-933-3890.

There are many options when it comes to eliminating, masking, and deodorizing the smells that can collect inside and out of your home or business. SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville offers many different solutions to help you with the "smelly smell of something that smells smelly." - Spongebob Squarepants

Odors can be eliminated by the use of ozone, hydroxyls, disinfectants, enzymes/engineered bacteria, odor counteractants, and fogging.

SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville typically gets around 5 phone calls a month regarding cigarette smoke odor in a home. With this type of smell, often times more cleaning is required than one would think!
Nicotine is sticky, and will cling to all surfaces including, but not limited to, walls, ceilings, counter tops, fans, and just about any horizontal surfaces you could think of! Because of this, all surfaces need to be wiped down with a disinfecting agent, and then ozoned to pair with the smoke odor and eliminate it for good!

Often times, a duct cleaning is also in order. This will clean out the vent system to ensure that smoke odor won't come back due to the use of a dirty HVAC system.

Call SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville for your deodorization needs in and around the El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer, Amador, Calaveras, and Sonora counties! (916) 933-3890

Doug and Alexa! Photo bombed by Blaze the SERVPRO mascot!

Here we have a photo of Douglas Scott (SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville franchise owner) and young daughter Alexa!

In our opinion, learning a trade at a young age is extremely beneficial to the human body, mind, and soul! The children of SERVPRO El Dorado Hills/Placerville have learned so much over the last 3 years, they could practically tell you how to dry out a home after a flood, wipe up the soot off walls due to smoke damage, and how to properly crawl into a crawl space!

Today, Alexa learned about crawl spaces, what their purpose is, and how to properly go about inspecting one for water/mold damage!

She sure is a trooper, and we wouldn't have it any other way!
