Unpleasant odors appear in a home or business environment for any number of reasons. Persistent, lingering smells often require professional help to eliminate.

Welcome to my website. I have the pleasure of serving Phoenix metropolitan homeowners and business owners with all persistent and lingering indoor odor problems. I've been in the home services industry my entire career and one aspect that has, in my opinion, lacked representation is odor elimination.
Many service providers claim they can eliminate odors such as cigarette and pet odors but they lack the fundamentals, and the science, behind eliminating these difficult problems. I've spent many years researching and studying the products and techniques required to actually eliminate these and other problem odors.
I invite you to call me and share what problem odors you're dealing with. Simply call me direct at 612-799-8818 and we can discuss the custom strategy for your odor elimination.
Greg's Trauma and Crime Scene Technician (TCST) certification provides him a deep understanding of the unique situations encountered when performing trauma and crime scene cleanup, regardless of surface, item, or location. He is very aware of the various procedures and precautions taken when performing work at a trauma/crime scene.
Greg inspects and investigates human blood and other potentially infectious material contamination to establish hazard assessments, work plans, and procedures for cleaning and safe transportation of contaminated material. When coupled with his odor elimination knowledge and field experience, he is able to perform trauma and crime scene cleanup safely.
Here are a few areas Greg uses his certificate:
Identify and remediate blood and body fluids left behind at a crime scene after an investigation.
Remediate and dispose of biohazard materials from a vehicle after an accident or crime.
Clean bloody and body fluid that occurred at an industrial property due to a work-related accident.
The cost is subject to the level of infestation and the travel distance. A ballpark estimate is approximately $1.00 per square foot of living space.
I do not use Ozone machines or any other machine. The science shows that none of the machines are effective at penetrating surfaces. Odors that have built up over years are embedded deep in surfaces. They must be treated by hand. In addition, all of the research informs us that Ozone does not positively affect odors. According to sources such as EPA.gov the odors will return within a few months or sooner.
Most odor elimination projects are completed within 2-3 days. Occasionally more time is needed.
An empty home that has been cleaned to some extent, is best. It is not essential to be completely empty. Certainly items in the home that are contributing to the odors need to be eliminated for obvious reasons.
I do not use a chemical bomb type of system. Some of the chemical reaction formulas I have seen require a Hazmat suit which shows lasting health threats to the home. They have not been shown to be effective enough. I found better and healthier systems. Some of these systems are my own creations discovered over time and were successful. These are specific to the odor problem existing.
Never paint until after the odors are gone. There is no paint that can eliminate or encapsulate any odor. The smell comes through the paint like water through a screen. Then the odor source, which is under the new paint, is harder to get at to eliminate the smell.
