Why Does My House Smell?

If your home has a particular smell that you notice every time you walk into a certain room or corner, you might need to figure out what it is. When houses are clean and well-maintained, they usually don't have an odor. But when there's something leaking or certain parts of the house are soiled, you will likely begin to notice a distinct and unpleasant smell.

You should definitely have it checked by a professional to get rid of the smell and find out the source, too.

Types of Smells

Funny smells can come from a wide range of sources. You could have pet urine, smoke, skunk, and grease odors that can make your house unpleasant. A professional will be able to pinpoint the source of the odor and will have the most effective tools, cleaners, and approach to removing the smell. You might also have a mold or mildew smell, which comes from water building up and creating the fungus on paper products, such as drywall.

Why You Should Call a Professional

When you have a bad odor, you might think that it's unimportant or will go away on its own. You might decide to spray extra air freshener, but that won't get to the root of the problem. You need to find the source so you can rid your house of the odor forever. And if you have mold or mildew, you need to have it professionally removed and disposed of. Mold and mildew can exacerbate current health issues or even create new ones.

If you have mold or mildew, you will need to remove the moldy drywall or anything else that has become tainted with the fungus. You also need to discover the source so that you can fix and leaking plumbing. If the smell is coming from a decomposing animal in the attic, it won't go away until you've determined where it is coming from. Professionals have smelled it all, and they'll likely know the scent immediately.

Bad smells don't have to linger for weeks or even months. In fact, they really shouldn't. If you have a strange smell in your house, give us a call here at Complete Restoration Services today! Our professionals can take care of that smell so you don’t have to.
