Fire, mold or pet urine odors are among the top 3 reasons our customers call us. One of the most frequent questions we get asked after an incident that involves odor is "Will it still smell?"

4) Deodorize the affected area with an ozone treatment if appropriate

5) Follow up with the customer in a few days to confirm the odor has been removed to their satisfaction.
