What's That Smell?
Water damage can not only cause heavy damage to your home and property and mold damage, but it can also cause some pretty awful odors. This is one of the biggest reasons why we recommend using a water damage remediation specialist. Odor removal is part of our job. If not cleaned up properly, water damage can cause some pretty horrific odors that can show up right away or even a week or a month after a water damage event.
Water damage odors can come from a variety of sources. One of the biggest, of course, is the smell of mold. The smell of mold is very identifiable to most people – it’s often described as musty. Odors can also come from bacterial growth in standing water, dead animals brought in by flooding, or – the worst in most opinions – sewage. If you smell sewage in your home, you should contact a water restoration company to determine where the smell is coming from and have it fixed. Sewage water damage can be very dangerous as it can contain harmful parasites and bacteria. Never attempt to clean this type of water damage yourself.
When odor caused by water damage gets into your property – wallpaper, furniture, paint, carpets, rugs, etc, contact a water damage restoration company to have it thoroughly cleaned and restored to its pre-loss condition. Water damage restoration companies can also determine the source of these smells if it is unknown and, more importantly, fix it.
Our water damage teams are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help solve all of your water damage problems –whether it be a suspicious smell or a flooded basement. Please don’t hesitate to call us with all of your water damage needs. We will work directly with your home insurance company to make this process as easy for you as possible.

The team that was sent to our house was wonderful. Their experience and professionalism in our situation was outstanding. I was concerned about our children and they took every precaution (air purifier, microbial spray) to keep them safe. Not only did they have good work ethics, they were personable and caring as well.Angela and Scott S.
