Getting the Stink Out of Your Home or Business Odor Removal Services in Bend, OR

9/19/2022 (Permalink)

The nose is an excellent detector when things are amiss. And when the temperatures are hot outside (and quite frankly, when they get hot inside, too), smells that were undetectable suddenly rear up and smack you in the face. Once the odor has your attention, most people go into detective mode, searching for clues as to the source of the stench.

Odor Removal Services in Central Oregon

In Central Oregon - especially in the summer, we get plenty of odor-related calls. The big reason is heat. Our hot summer temperatures promote odor. Have you ever noticed that smells come out of the woodwork (pun intended) when it’s hot outside and hot in your home or commercial space)? There’s a reason. When wood gets warm, it expands, and odors get caught within it. Then, on a nice and hot day, the odors are released. Voila, now you’ve got a stinky house (or business). 

The challenge is zoning in on the source of the odor, which can be character-building to identify. Thankfully, SERVPRO of Bend is ranked #1 in the cleanup and restoration industry due to our ability to identify and effectively treat a variety of damages that can occur in a home or commercial space.

We don’t use masking agents just to cover up the smell. Our odor removal process includes pairing and filtration agents, disinfectants, sanitizers, enzyme digesters, oxidation, and air purification. 

Animals and Odor Remediation

Would you be surprised to learn that one of the most common odor-related problems we see in Central Oregon is due to animals? We’ve got quite a few critters who would love to make their home inside our home. The more rural a location that your home is located, the greater your chance of having unwelcome visitors and even more unwelcome odors. 

If you’ve had the family pet vomit or defecate in your home, chances are you can appreciate the challenge of removing the odors associated with the act. Multiply that stench, and you’ve got an idea of what damage a wild animal can do. We ensure that doesn’t happen with our four-step odor removal process.  

Mold and Odor Removal

Actively growing mold releases microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), which usually have a distinct odor - earthy, pungent, and reminiscent of rotting wood. Mold feeds on moisture, which is why it is often caused by a leak or persistent moisture and could grow behind walls, under wallpaper, under floorboards, or in ductwork. It is damage that perpetuates until it is treated, and its signature smell won’t disappear until then. 

Our team of professionals possesses the skills and expertise to clean various odors. Whether the damage is located in your home or commercial space, we’re ready to help. Call for an assessment, so we can make it smell "Like it never even happened."
