Unpleasant odors appear in a home or business environment for any number of reasons. Persistent, lingering smells often require professional help to eliminate.
Most of our customers face severe health risks associated with persistent and lingering cigarette smoke smells, pet odors, decomposition, and infestation.
We make Arizona indoor environments healthier by working with real estate professionals and homeowners to completely eliminate all indoor odors.
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 am excited to add the Minneapolis, MN office in April 2022. 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 1-833-OdorGuy (1-833-636-7489) 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.
Occasionally. But ozone alone will never be enough to eliminate persistent odors caused by a buildup of chemical residue. Scientific studies show that ozone and other machines are not effective enough at penetrating surfaces. After years of residue build up, hand treatments using formulas designed with the right chemistry and biology in mind are essential. According to epa.gov and other trusted sources, odors will return unless nearly all traces of chemical residue have been removed. Only in the final stage, after the buildup of chemical residue has been removed first, can ozone be used with more reliable success to help eliminate odors.
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.
It is always best to remove carpet when dealing with persistent and lingering odors. This is not the answer most people want to hear, particularly if the carpet still looks good.
Consider the characteristics of carpeted flooring; it is made up of the carpet, the carpet pad and the subfloor area beneath it. Three layers of flooring where the source of the odor is likely present. Without removing the carpet and pad some odor will remain.
From experience, every time a property owner insists on keeping existing carpeting, the odors have not completely been eliminated. It is not until after the carpet and pad were discarded that the odor is no longer detectable.
