Five Nasty Smells That Moore Restoration Can Eliminate

odor remediation

Often the mold, fire, and water damage that requires restoration services is easily seen and identified. However, another type of damage that can (be) hard to find and even harder to eliminate is odor. Offensive odors make us feel uncomfortable and disturbed. We don’t even really like to think about this type of irritant. However, the reality is that it does happen. The good news is that Moore Restoration has the means to get rid of most odors. Here are some of the nasty smells that Moore’s odor remediation services can help you neutralize in your home or commercial facilities.


Fire is a destructive force. In a matter of minutes, it can burn up flammable substance, damage what it does not burn, and leave behind a mess of soot and smoke. Fire damage restoration inevitabl(y) must include the elimination of smoky odors. Moore Restoration has been handling fire remediation for over 20 years, and we do not consider a job done until the odor of smoke is irradicated from a home or commercial building.


Everyone knows the smell of mold. Sometimes we call it musty or stale, but we all know that it is an indication of the presence of mold. The odor may even be the first sign that mold has begun to grow. Again, Moore Restoration has experience with the whole process of mold removal. We know that it is not simply an issue of getting rid of the mold that can be seen, but also includes dealing with the smell of mold and the spores that threaten to re-infest if not taken care of.


They may be too tiny to see, but pathogens are definitely recognizable by smell. Bacteria, in particular, are known for emitting some of the worst smells. Obviously, if an area is contaminated with pathogens, there is a need to get rid of both the organisms themselves as well as the smell they produce. For these kinds of situations, Moore Advanced Services Group utilizes SteraMist™ BIT™ technology, a patented two-step process that aerosolizes and activates a low concentration hydrogen peroxide solution to produce a fine aqueous mist. This mist contains a high concentration of reactive oxidative species (ROS), mostly hydroxyl radicals, which cause damage to pathogenic organisms. SteraMist has been shown to be effective in reducing or eliminating bacteria and viruses, including MRSA, H1N1, and Clostridium difficile.

The last thing you want to think about creating smell in your residential or commercial building is biowaste, but contamination does occur. Water from plumbing leaks, sewer lines backups, or flooding can all be tainted with biowaste, resulting in odors which are unpleasant to say the least. Other situations that may leave biowaste and the accompanying odors include crimes, trauma, or death. Moore has the resources and expertise to remediate the odors as well as the underlying causes.


Similar to biowaste, animals can also produce noxious odors. The most notorious offender has to be the skunk. Emitting horrendous odors when they feel threatened or provoked, a skunk that is inadvertently trapped in a garage or attic can pollute an entire home with odor that makes the place unlivable. Getting rid of this strong odor is no easy task. Yet using the powerful tool of Steramist technology, we are confident that we can eliminate even this hard-to-dispel odor.

While they might be out of sight, lingering odors are certainly not out of mind. Before you despair, contact us and let Moore Restoration help with any odor remediation needs you may have.
