Pete was called to assist in this property in Gloucester where there were significant odour issues due to cat urine.
The first step in successful odour neutralisation is locating the source of the odour so it can be addressed. This is not always an easy process but is vital to ensure the odour can be successfully neutralised. Without addressing the source, the odour will persist.
Once the source of the odour is located, the area is thoroughly cleaned to remove any bacteria and soiling. This is what you can see Pete doing here using the water claw for a deep rinse extraction. Once all areas of the source of the odour are thoroughly cleaned we can be confident the area is decontaminated.
The source of the problem in this instance was carpets, hard floors and upholstery, where the surfaces were holding onto the odour molecules.
After all these areas had received a thorough deep clean, it was time to move on to tackling the airborne odour contaminants.
Where there are multiple sources of the odour, there are gases released into the air meaning the whole area needs to be deodorised.
Once all the cleaning is done, Pete used a ULV (Ultra low volume) fogger with a water-based odour counteractant to tackle the airborne odour molecules.
This fogging ensures all areas are decontaminated and are left smelling fresh and clean.
We recommend after fogging the property is left empty for a short while to allow the product to dissipate and get to all the areas it needs to without being disturbed.
We are IICRC trained in odour neutralisation, you can read more about this accreditation here.
Pete has done a fantastic job, the source has been decontaminated and the odour addressed meaning the home will be a much more sanitary, and fresh smelling place to be.
