How Can the Budding Cannabis Industry Affect Your Home’s Value?

Biohazard Clean Up

The use of cannabis has grown over the last five years, and now there are over twenty-nine states that have approved either the medicinal or recreational use of cannabis. However, if you are looking to sell your home and there is a tobacco or cannabis odor, that could lower the value of your home by up to 29%, according to some estimates. That is a big drop in value. If you are looking to sell your home, there should not be pet odors, protein odors, food odors, tobacco odors, or cannabis odors.

Not To Be Blunt, But We Do a Good Job.

We recently did a deodorization job for cigarette smoke in North Park in San Diego. Cigarette smoke is one of the toughest odors to remove, along with cannabis. When sticky tobacco residues accumulate, the resulting film on interior building surfaces continually releases unpleasant odors. As you would imagine, heavy smoking over a long period causes these stenches to be extreme and stubborn. 

For this job, our team arrived on site on Saturday, July 24, to begin the restoration. Using deodorization techniques and specialized equipment like foggers, ozone generators, and hydroxyl generators, we were successfully able to remove the smell. In just one day, we removed the lingering traces of the odors from the smoke. But, how would this situation affect the home’s value if we did not professionally clean it?

Our sense of smell can determine a lot of things for us. Some potential home buyers might walk through a home and walk right out within minutes and never return, while others will still look. Scents impact the brain and how we perceive things, especially when making a decision such as what to eat, or in this case, feeling comfortable in a potential home. Of course, we can’t always please everyone all of the time, but if you can avoid these odors, that will certainly help. The most important smell you can leave buyers with is the smell of “clean.” Keep your home sparkling clean, free of dirt and dust, and you will be rewarded when the time comes to sell.
