It Doesn't Smell (That Bad)!
The nuisance aroma associated with Moisture and Mold related projects are complex and subjective issues that are often difficult to address. Building materials absorb and re-release odors differently; Soil gases and vapors come and go; ambient impacts (from pets, occupants, lifestyles, etc) impact odors and we all just smell things differently.
How Do I Know If I Have A Problem?
A person’s perception of odor is related to their olfactory system which can vary widely from person to person; what smells bad to one person may have no odor at all to someone else. But all odors are an indication of something going on in your home. A good rule of thumb is:
“If the leftovers in your refrigerator smelled like your damp-musty basement, would you eat them?”
How do I Get Rid of That Smell?
You can clean, use air-fresheners, paint, install new carpeting and ventilate the home. But that will just mask the smell and lend temporary relief. The bad smell will just return.
It all goes back to the source. If you have done all you can do and your home still stinks, give GreenWorks a call. They can help identify the source and get rid of your bad smell once and for all.
