Odour Control and Removal
ODOUR REMOVAL SERVICES
Odour control and removal issues have many causes. From severe odours caused by fire, smoke, mold, irresponsible tenants, to invasive species, such as rodents, raccoons, skunks or bats.
The first step in dealing with invasive, unpleasant odour in a home or business property is to identify the source. We then completely remove the source of the odour and clean and disinfect all affected surfaces. Even intense and foul odours can be controlled and removed at the source.
At ServiceMaster of Cape Breton we use highly trained technicians, specialized equipment and proprietary products to disinfect, deodorize and extract severe odours from your home or commercial structure, regardless of the cause.
Eliminating offensive odours caused by smoke, fires, animal presence, urine, feces, biological decomposition, post-mortem situations, mold, mildew, sewage, and protein-based sources is part of our every day work.
If you have an invasive, offensive odour problem in your home or business property, call us today for fast, efficient and reliable service.
SAFE ODOUR REMOVAL
We do not use harsh, polluting chemicals in our clean up and odour removal procedures. All of our cleaning products are environmentally-safe for people and pets and do not simply mask odours with fragrance or perfume but neutralize microorganisms at their organic source. Even intense, foul and difficult to remove odours are eliminated permanently and safely by our qualified technicians.
What would be considered non-insured work?
Any construction project unrelated to your loss is considered non-insured work. At your request, we will provide a separate estimate for non-insured construction projects, and this work will require separate authorization and payment terms. If the non-insured work will delay the completion of an insured portion, then the situation must first be discussed with your Insurance Adjuster and the ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager.
Do I need to move out of my home during the restoration process?
Depending on the extent of damage, your insurance representative can help you answer this question. Ultimately, however, this is a decision you must reach on your own. Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odours, electricity, and disruption as a result of the equipment, work and noise that may be necessary to complete the restoration process in your home. If vacating your premises during the process, consider forwarding your mail to your temporary residence; stopping your newspaper and other deliveries; notifying your utility company, cable company, etc., of the temporary suspension of services during the restoration process.
Common Causes of Basement Flooding
Since basements are built partially if not fully below ground, they’re prone to flooding. For that reason, a basement flood may occur not only during the rainy season and the spring thaw but at any time of year, even when the conditions are
