Remove Unappealing Odors From Your Business With the Help of SERVPRO®

1/22/2020 (Permalink)

We’ve all experienced it. You walk into a restaurant, shop, or office building and you‘re suddenly hit with a scent. Sometimes it’s just a very strong smell, like a curry or a cleaning chemical. Sometimes it’s a scent that makes you feel like you’re going to see your breakfast in reverse. While there are some smells that you can open a window or door and let fade out of the building, there are some scents that linger for far too long. This can lead to a number of issues that could hinder the success of your business.

  • Scents bothering employees.
    • Employees exposed for long periods of time to certain smells are likely to become irritated or possibly sick. Imagine spending your entire day in a building with a dead critter in the HVAC system. The smell could cause morale to fall and it could actually lead to employees finding ways to either speed through the workday or not show up at all.
  • Scents bothering clients.
    • Word travels fast these days. If your business has even one flaw that could affect the customer experience, it will be talked about and people will begin to avoid coming to your store or restaurant. Example: no matter how much a person likes seafood if a restaurant smells like bad fish that person will avoid it at all costs.
  • Odors and their causes ruining building furniture and possibly merchandise as well.
    • If you are a business that sells goods, and there is a particularly bad and penetrative smell, you can expect that to goods you are trying to sell will be affected as well. Food will begin to taste wrong and furniture could start to absorb the smell.
  • Possible illnesses.
    • Depending on the source of the stink, you could be putting yourself and the other people in the building at risk by not taking care of the source and the scent. Dead critters, sewage, and other biohazards that produce certain smells could be releasing certain toxins into the air. Breathing it in could lead to minor or major illness depending on the source.
