There is nothing more embarrassing than hearing someone ask,
“What’s that smell?” when they enter your home.
At Advanced Steam Extraction we specialize in locating, identifying and removing malodors. If you have smoke odors, pet urine odor, a dead rat smell, musty smells or other offensive odor you do not have to live with the smell any longer.
Odors are measured in microns and as an example a smoke odor molecule is around a .5 micron. These odor molecules can get trapped into your walls, floors, furniture and drapes throughout your home. Over the counter sprays, machines, cleaners and remedies don’t always work effectively.
We specialize in a clean home by not only removing odors, but by improving your home’s air quality as well. Our experts understand that day-to-day life can easily become uncomfortable if you’re living in a home filled with noxious smells and unpleasant odors.
Our odor removal services are effective at removing:
- Pet Odors
- Smoke Odors
- Mold Odors
Identify the source
It is important to find out where the smell is coming from and what is causing the issue. Smells aren’t always easy to find such as a small mouse on the inside of your wall that is decomposing. Specialty equipment such as a thermal imaging camera and moisture meters can help to isolate the source.
Cleaning the affected area
Cleaning chemicals are helpful if you know the proper way to use them in the right application. Using the wrong chemical can cause more harm than good in some cases. Some materials such as fine furniture and drapery fabric can be permanently damaged using household chemicals. Knowing the PH of the chemical, the PH of the spot you’re trying to remove and how the material reacts to these PH’s is what we specialize in.
Re-Create the condition
As you remember in high school science, heat causes things to expand and cold causes them to contract. If your car is sitting in the parking lot in the middle of August in Mississippi, the temperature can rise to over 130 degrees. These high temperatures can drive malodors deeper into the porous material in your car making them harder to remove. Applying proper cleaning techniques and deodorizers while allowing the material to go through the same temperature ranges can greatly increase a successful deodorization process and a better smell for your home, vehicle or business.
