How to Remove Severe Odors from Your Home

Biohazard Clean Up

Dealing with an odor problem can be one of the most annoying experiences for a homeowner. Some odors can be neutralized using over-the-counter (OTC) products available at stores, but others are not that easy to eliminate. Skunk spray, serious pet urine odor, and decomposition smells are some of the most upsetting when they affect your home. But although controlling those odors can be difficult, it can be achieved. Here are tips on how to deodorize a house properly.

Safety Comes First

Before you start getting rid of the odors, remember that safety is the most important thing. That’s because you might be dealing with some forms of biological contamination. You’ll need gloves, eye protection, and something that will cover your skin in case of a spill or splash. Also, wear an N-95 disposable respirator which you can purchase from any Home Depot or similar stores. The respirator will prevent anything from getting into the mucus membranes of your nose and mouth.

After you have ensured your safety, the first step in getting rid of an odor is removing the source.
