Professional Deodorization vs DIY

professional deodorization in baltimore

No matter how often or how well you clean, sometimes you just can’t seem to get that one odor to disappear. That’s because some are harder to remove than others. This can include cigarette smoke, pet accidents, and food spills, among others. ServiceMaster of Baltimore can identify, remove, and prevent odors with our professional deodorization services. Learn more about how professional deodorization works and how it differs from doing it yourself.

Finding the Source

Even if you think you can DIY your deodorization, you’ll need to first identify what’s causing it. And sometimes it may not be so obvious. Some odor-causing problem areas that you may not think of right away, are drains, standing water or moisture leaks, sewers, and bathrooms. You may also be experiencing smells from a recent disaster, such as a fire on your property or a sewage backup. Once you’ve found the source of the problem, you can begin eliminating the unpleasant odor it’s causing.

Do-It-Yourself Deodorization

It’s easy to find consumer products for neutralizing an odor. But these will only temporarily mask the problem, instead of eliminating it completely. Odors are often due to bacteria, so it’s important to maintain a clean environment. Even if you’re regularly using disinfectants, lack of proper maintenance will cause odors to return. Even a simple Google search of “DIY deodorization” will bring up hundreds of different solutions you can make at home to neutralize odors. And you’ll find that baking soda is one of the most common ingredients for eliminating them. These may help provide simple solutions. But in stubborn cases, you’ll need to call the professionals.

Professional Deodorization

Sometimes baking soda or consumer products just aren’t enough. Smoke from a fire or overflow from a sewage backup shouldn’t be taken on alone. That’s when it’s time to call the professionals. ServiceMaster of Baltimore has the tools and techniques to ensure your odor is completely removed from the source. This involves using steam, charcoal filters, HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuums, and more. These kinds of tools and techniques help neutralize odors and clean the air, making it safe for breathing.
