Odor Removal and Deodorization

Can You Smell That Smell in Your Chicago Home?

You might not be able to smell long-standing odors in your home due to a phenomenon of the nose known as olfactory fatigue. This condition blocks out even harsh or offensive scents after a time, making it seem as though they no longer exist. It is similar to walking into someone’s home that does not properly maintain the odors produced by multiple animals, and they are noticeably unaware that the strong odor exists just inside the front door of their Chicago home.

Familiar scents blocked out in our homes by olfactory fatigue are:

• The smells our pets can leave behind
• Musty odors from damp households typical to the Chicago area
• Smoking odors
