What Can Be Done to Eliminate Bad Odors From My Workplace in Eugene?

6/27/2022 (Permalink)

A dirty drainpipe is shown. We identify and neutralize awful odors for Lane County businesses!

Our South Eugene and Florence team is trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to identify and restore areas affected by bad odors. Odors may originate from multiple sources inside and outside the building and are offensive to customers and employees. Our technicians never take shortcuts by “masking odors” as these methods are ineffective, and the odor will not be eliminated.

Common Causes of Bad Odors

  • Dirty drains
  • Bacteria
  • Sewer systems
  • Dead animals in walls or crawl spaces
  • Garbage disposals
  • Rotten food

Odor Identification

When we arrive, our technicians will work to identify the source of the odor and locate where it is making contact with surfaces. Often the odors originate from more than one location in the building.

Odor Elimination Process

After we identify the cause of the odor and determine the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can often be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians use several odor removal products capable of thoroughly penetrating surfaces to neutralize unpleasant scents.

A flooded building is shown. We respond to commercial storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lane County.

Florence businesses can rely on our local South Eugene and Florence team to respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day. According to the City of Eugene website, flooding occurred long before the first European settlers arrived in the area in the mid-1800s. The significant floods happened in 1861, 1890, 1945, 1956, and 1964. Lane County’s largest flood in recorded history, or the “big flood,” occurred in 1964. The City of Eugene provides free information regarding flood hazards for specific sites within the community and can answer flood-related questions.  Staff can assist with flood protection and mitigation design questions and with local flooding concerns, and they can also make site visits.

If your business is damaged in a storm, we will inspect your building and provide an assessment of the damage. We will tarp and board up any areas exposed to the elements to minimize the potential for further damage. We use powerful, industrial-grade water extraction and drying equipment and monitor and document the drying process to ensure the area is returned to normal moisture levels. We can also provide rebuilding services to restore the damage to pre-storm conditions.

How Will I Know If I Have a Hidden Mold Problem in My Eugene Business?

4/25/2022 (Permalink)

Mold damage is visible on a floor with water damage. We mitigate and remediate mold problems for Lane County businesses.

Mold damage is common in Eugene. Microscopic mold spores are always present in the Earth’s atmosphere waiting for the perfect moist conditions to colonize. Once the mold spores find the optimum conditions, the mold can spread rapidly in as little as 48 to 72 hours and will spread to other parts of the building if not contained and mitigated quickly. If you smell a strong, musty odor you can’t place, have had recent water damage, or see visible signs of a mold infestation, our team in South Eugene and Florence can help.

Highly Trained Team

First, we will inspect and locate the source of the moisture and make repairs to minimize the potential for the mold to return. Then we will begin the mitigation process.

  • Applied Microbial Remediation Specialist
  • Water Damage Restoration Technician
  • Applied Structural Drying Technician
  • Odor Control Technician
  • Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician

We are trained to work in all kinds of buildings and workplaces, including:

  • Small Office Buildings
  • Large Office/High-Rise Office Buildings
  • Apartment Buildings
  • Restaurants
  • Hotel/Motels
  • Small Retail Stores
  • Large Retail/Big-Box Stores
  • High-Rise Residential
  • Manufacturing and Industrial
  • Government/Military
