Dealing with strange odors in your home is never fun, and sometimes it can be tricky to figure out exactly what the cause is. There are some specific events that might require a professional service to deal with the odors in your home, and we're going to consider a few of them in this post.
Whether it is a small fire that is contained quickly, or a major one that does a lot of damage to your home, rebuilding damaged sections of your home is most likely going to be your first concern, but you will notice that the odor of smoke keeps lingering a long time after all the repairs have been finished.
While you might feel like the odor lessens after a period of time, this is basically just your nose getting used to it. An easy way to verify this is to go away from your home for a day or two. When you get back, you will definitely notice the odor.
This odor is probably the worst you can deal with in a home if you're not a smoker yourself. At times, people have bought homes not noticing the odor until they started living in the building, and at that point, it's their problem to deal with. The problem with cigarette smoke is that there might be several items in your home that makes the odor linger for longer. There could for example be a film on all the lightbulbs in your home which would start smelling when the lights are turned on. It's also common that filters in your HVAC system absorb the smoke odor.
The main consideration when it comes to mold odor is that the source of the odor needs to be addressed first of all. Usually you will find mold growth in dark damp areas of your home, so mold remediation should be your first step. After that is cared for, odor removal comes next.
