Common Household Odors - How Bio-One Can Help You Remove Them

Common Household Odors - How Bio-One Can Help You Remove Them

Have you ever noticed how certain smells can take you back to a specific memory? Maybe it's the smell of your grandmother's baking or the cologne your father used to wear. Whatever the scent, smells have a way of evoking strong emotions.


The same can be said for common household odors. While they may not be as pleasant as your grandmother's baking, they can still be quite potent. And if you're dealing with a particularly pungent odor, the type of odor that doesn't go away by using air fresheners, it can make your home feel unpleasant.

The good news is that Bio-One is here to help. We specialize in odor removal, and our team of certified professionals will work diligently to rid your home of any unwanted smells. Sometimes, the odor problem might be related to structural damage to the property, which can happen if you own pets. Pet urine, for example, can linger for long periods of time on the floor tiles, carpets, and porous surfaces. No matter how foul these pervasive odors may be, Bio-One can help you.


What are some of the most common places where odors occur in homes?


Some of the most common places where odors occur are the kitchen, the bathroom, and the laundry room. Odors can come from cooking, improper garbage disposal, and the sink in the kitchen. Foul odors can come from the toilet, showering, and cleaning products in the bathroom. Odors can come from the washing machine, laundry detergent, and fabric softener in the laundry room.

Additionally, cigarette smoke and tobacco smoke can be pretty invasive and unpleasant in houses where people smoke.  Pet odors can also be a problem in homes, particularly if the pet is not house-trained. Finally, musty smells can indicate a mold or mildew problem.


These unpleasant odors can affect the indoor air quality of your home, creating a hazardous environment for humans and even animals. If you even notice bad smells in your home, consider hiring Bio-One's odor removal services to help you sanitize and disinfect your place safely and effectively.

Why is it important to remove odors from your home?


There are many reasons you would want to eliminate odor from your home. Maybe you have pets that leave behind a smell, or you simply want your home to smell fresh and clean. Whatever the reason, eliminating odors can be important for both your health and your enjoyment of your home.


Unwanted odors are uncomfortable, but they can carry potential diseases and infections. The ammonia from pet urine, for example, can result in respiratory problems for humans. Additionally, mold and mildew can cause serious health problems, particularly for people with asthma or allergies.


Bad smells can also make selling your home or renting a business property difficult. It will be harder to find tenants or buyers if you have an unpleasant odor. No one wants to live in a smelly house,  so it’s essential to make sure your home is odor-free before listing it.

How can you prevent odors from happening in your home?


There are a few things you can do to help prevent odors in your home:


  • Keep your home clean and clutter-free. This will help reduce the number of places for odors to build up.

  • Make sure to clean up spills and messes right away.

  • Ventilate your home by opening windows and doors to let fresh air in.

  • Use air fresheners or scented candles to help mask any odors present, but beware if the odors are not neutralized.

  • Keep your garbage cans clean and empty them regularly.

  • If you have pets, make sure to clean up after them and keep their area clean.

  • Avoid smoking inside the home.

  • Use strong-smelling foods sparingly.

  • Take out the trash regularly.

  • If you notice a persistent odor, try to identify the source and clean it up or remove it.


Thorough cleaning is key to keeping odors off your home. If you can't find the smell's source, or you just feel overwhelmed by the odor-causing bacteria, let Bio-One help you.
