Managing Challenging Odours in Your Household

6 ways to get rid of bad odors from your home - Hella Home

Persistent odours in your home can be a real drag, impacting your comfort and making your place feel less than fresh. While everyday cleaning products handle some odours, others require a more powerful approach. Skunk spray, potent pet stains, and even decomposition smells are particularly unpleasant and demand a different strategy.

Here's a guide to managing severe odours effectively:

  1. Skunk Spray and Pet Odours:
    • Gear Up: Protect yourself with gloves, eye protection, and full-cover clothing. Use an N-95 respirator to avoid inhaling harmful fumes.
    • Cleaning:
      • Non-porous surfaces: Mix warm water and strong detergent, wash thoroughly, and rinse with clean water.
      • Porous surfaces (extensive damage): Seek professional help. Carpeting, upholstery, or particleboard may need removal for complete odour elimination.
      • Semi-porous surfaces: Clean with a water and detergent solution. For severe damage, consider contacting restoration experts.
  1. Decomposition Odors:
    • Professional Help is Key: Following body removal by authorities, adhere to OSHA regulations for cleaning and decontamination. SLC Environmental Inc. provides professional restoration services ensuring safe and thorough odor removal, compliant with industry standards.
    • Small Animal Decomposition: Follow cleaning protocols similar to pet urine or skunk spray. Sanitize non-porous and semi-porous materials, discarding severely impacted absorbent items. For persistent odours, contact a restoration company for specialized treatment.
  1. Cigarette Smoke Odors:
    • Professional Restoration: Cigarette smoke odour removal often requires expertise. SLC Environmental Inc. utilizes specialized knowledge and advanced techniques to eliminate odours effectively, restoring your home to a fresh and healthy environment.
