An Odor Pros Affiliate, may or may not provide housekeeping services; however, they will always clean homes & business - the ones that scare the average cleaning contractor away is our forte. You see, the presence of musty smells is the presence of a problem, and we have the cure.
We eliminate the odors that fragrances can't cover, and ozone can't destroy: pet odors, tobacco, musty, stale air, odors from mold, mildew, hard workouts or bad living - we guarantee to rid them from your world, and then support you with the products necessary to keep them away!
Not all disinfectants are alike.
Many are sold by their fragrance, rather than by their performance. Fragrance has nothing to do with protecting your world.
We only use those that will rid germs quickly and leave no toxic residue behind. We insist on offering safer solutions.
Disinfectants only work when their wet - for about 10 minutes out of the day. Germs are deposited 1440 minutes of the day (24 hours), so we offer the application of non-toxic, completely sustainable coatings that keep bugs at bay. Surface protectants are your very best defense.
Folks in Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska don't have to deal with humid air like the Northeast and coastal regions, but we do occasionally have broken pipes, storm damage and other water intrusions that can cause musty odors.
Mustiness can be defined as when the air is stale, and mildly contaminated by the spores of mold or mildew.
It is commonplace anywhere that there are old books, stacks of cardboard boxes and piles of clothes papers or anything that can absorb and hold dampness. Items stored in basements are known to be musty.
One might not think of it as being an overtly unpleasant odor, or particularly hazardous, but in reality it will quickly trigger allergic reactions and can settle in to develop respiratory infections.
Even in Nebraska, we have the occasional snowbird. One who closes up home and heads to Florida or Arizona for the Winter months. Seasonal homes are seasonally OPEN and seasonally CLOSED, right?
And during the months that a vacation home is closed up, stale, often moist air creates an environment with the beginnings of mold spores can be developed. Warning of the initial presence of these spores comes in an odor we call 'mustiness'. While it is entirely possible to remove this odor and kill these spores by opening windows and letting the sun shine in - the safer means is through the services of your local OdorPros affiliate who is an expert at removing and eliminating mustiness.
Who would ever think of building a 'man cave' anywhere other than a basement, right? They just seem to go hand in hand. Mustiness is rare in Nebraska, but not impossible. It's not unheard of to have a basement pipe burst or a storm drain to back up. Carpeted floors, overstuffed furniture, fiber-board constructed entertainment centers that surround a large-screen television and book shelves full of books on sports statistics and memorabilia are all staples of the theme, correct? The problem is that basements are below ground and prone to dampness and condensation. The darkness, lack of air exchange and fixtures that all hold dampness will all create unhealthy 'mustiness'.
Books are wonderful things. They deliver ages and ages of knowledge to us, and can take us to places only dreamed of. Old books can come into your possession to expand your Omaha or Lincoln, Nebraska library, and communicate gems of knowledge that were long forgotten. To receive an inheritance that includes a good library is to receive a blessing that money just can't buy.
However, these books usually have dried leather covers and dried cellulose pages - sponges for dampness and microbial contamination. Storage conditions must be carefully prepared and any microbes, inherited with the books must be removed and eliminated by an OdorPro. If you encounter it in Lincoln for odor, we can eliminate it!
Simply put, damp, earthy smell of mold and mildew can also be due to excessive humidity, especially in stagnant places like the bathroom, basement, or laundry room. When mold and mildew build up, they release foul-smelling gases, which permeate textiles like your carpet, curtains, and upholstery. Some additional sources of excessive humidity that cause mold and mildew include:
If you've ever smelled decaying wood or wet, musty towels left in a pile after a long weekend, you've smelled the stale, earthy odor of mold and mildew. A leaky pipe or roof can also cause the buildup of humidity and moisture that results in this offensive smell. Moisture and still air lingering in dark crevices around your home create a welcoming environment for the growth of mold and mildew. When the spores begin to multiply, they emit gasses that our noses can detect. Exposure to mold and mildew in the home can be hazardous to your health. Some people are more sensitive to mold and mildew than others or may already have asthma that mold and mildew can exacerbate.
The problem can still cause respiratory and other bodily symptoms of varying degrees that may include:
Stale. Moldy. Damp. Stuffy. Are these words that come to mind when you pull should-be-fresh clothes out of the dryer? Or when you walk down to the basement? What you’re smelling is often described as a “musty” odor. While this is not exactly pleasant, it is important that humans can smell things that could alert us to potential danger. Behind the mustiness can be mold or mildew, and they can be harmful.
If your home or clothing smells musty, chances are you have mold or mildew hiding out. While other things — like a lack of ventilation or high levels of humidity — can make a musty odor more noticeable, they typically are not the primary cause of the smell - they just create the conditions under which the musty smells develop. In short, musty odors are when your house is crying out for help.
Mustiness or a stale smell coming from your clothes can really only indicate one or more of three causes:
You must first find the cause, and then implement the strategy that will eliminate the problem. Let an Odor-Pros affiliate help you investigate and develop a plan.
Basements are likely the most common cause for musty odors in a home. Leaky foundation walls that let in dirty and microbe-infested water into your cellar only to stand and grow new colonies of fungi and other microbes can quickly spread the musty smells throughout an air-tight house.
It you have water coming into your basement, have your drainage checked and run a dehumidifier.
YES. As already stated above. Exposure to mold and mildew in the home can be hazardous to your health. Some people are more sensitive to mold and mildew than others or may already have asthma that mold and mildew can exacerbate.
The problem can still cause respiratory and other bodily symptoms.
While the most common source in a home is your cellar, you may also have a leaky roof, condensating supply lines, dripping drain pipes or poorly sealed windows.
Anywhere that moisture and get in and soak construction materials within your home like drywall, wood trim, floor boards, ceiling tiles, carpeting or more can all develop the musty odors that indicate mold.
If your nose and eyes are not able to immediately identify the source of the problem, then consider having a contractor scan your home for moisture content within the substrates of your home - moisture will indicate musty smell origins and mustiness will identify the location for the spores that develop into mildew and mold.
