Keeping your home safe and sound is no small task, and you’re doing your best to keep up with it all.

Why Call in Professionals for Odor Removal Services?
1. Some Odors are Harmful to Your Health
We all think about wiping down our kitchen counters and mopping up our floors to get rid of bacteria and germs. Bet you don’t think about all the bacteria and contaminants that can actually become airborne! Surprisingly, odor removal is a key prevention step in the process of airborne contaminants from negatively affecting your family’s health inside your home.
Smoke related odors that are lingering are especially harmful and tricky to eliminate. Common sense would suggest that since smoke rises the odors would probably settle somewhere upward. But actually the odors settle in cooler places like ductwork and ventilation systems. This means the harmful particles in the odor are redistributed throughout the house every time your air kicks on, and your family is breathing that in daily!
Hiring a competent and capable professional odor removal team is a necessary investment in protecting your family’s health. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, when breathed in, airborne contaminants and smoke particles from foul odors can enter the lungs and bloodstream, and can harm the lungs and the heart.
The size of contaminating particles from the odor is directly related to their potential for doing harm and causing health problems. Unfortunately, we can’t measure what we can’t see. The average homeowner does not have the proper training or tools to do an odor removal job safely and thoroughly.
The team at Green Rat Control specializes in Odor Removal services that make your home safer. They have all the professional-grade equipment to sanitize and deodorize your space, eliminating any and all dangerous airborne contaminants, so you and your family can breathe easy again!

3. When Your Odor Problem is really a Rodent Problem
When odor professionals respond to a home complaint the most common sources of odor are underneath decks, in attics, walls, vents, and drains. Guess what is found there? Animal carcasses or nests. Ugh! You might think, not in my house! But the truth is, rodents can strike anywhere. Not just in unkempt or abandoned properties. The most manicured and well cared for home can fall victim to rodent infestation.
Rats and mice weasel their way into your space through the tiniest crevices and weak spots in your exterior. A rat will squeeze through a ½ inch size hole, and a mouse a ¼ inch crack! It’s entirely possible for rodents to invade, nest, and die in your attic or basement without you being any the wiser. Their movement is mostly nocturnal and for the most part they are cautious and and smart.
Rodents get into trouble when they can’t find food or a water source. Most are reluctant to stray far from their nest. If they go without food or water for very long they end up dying.
If you have secretly been thinking to yourself, it smells like something died in here! In this case, it’s not a figure of speech. It is a very unpleasant but probable cause of the stench you are experiencing.
Removal of a dead animal carcass or dead rodents should never be attempted by homeowners. There are many risks and hazards involved. Dead animals carry infectious diseases that can be contracted easily and can even become airborne.
Special protective gear, tools, and techniques are used to safely remove dead animal carcasses from living spaces. The area where an animal carcass is discovered is contaminated and may be damaged to some degree. Professionals wear suits, gloves, and masks that cover them from head to toe, protecting their skin, eyes, and lungs from dangerous bacteria.
You need to let the professionals determine the degree of damage and the best steps for cleaning and restoration. All of these procedures will end up eliminating the odor issue by dealing with the root of the problem.
