Why You Should Use a San Diego Professional Smoke and Odor Removal Company
There are many things that can cause odor issues within a home, including pet accidents, tobacco use, cooking odors, and more. Unfortunately, long-term odors can cause significant damage to carpets, furniture, and even paint if left untreated – especially when it comes to smoke or urine.
As more time elapses after the accident, the carpet will be more difficult to restore and there is a higher chance that it will be permanently damaged. Because there are many different factors that result in varying issues, it’s important to hire an experienced professional like Abbotts for smoke and odor removal.
What Can Cause Lingering Odors?
Tobacco smoke attaches to surfaces and leaves a sticky, yellow-brown residue that homeowners can see, smell, and feel. Areas exposed to long term smoking are subject to both odor and discoloration. Not only does smoke penetrate through surfaces and objects, but it can also contaminate other areas throughout the building as smoke travels through its HVAC system.
We implement an array of methods to remove bad odors, from cleaning to chemical and hydroxyl treatments. Although odor molecules may only be seen on certain surfaces, smoke particles get carried throughout the building, making it common for multiple areas to be contaminated.
Because of this, it is necessary to thoroughly clean all surfaces, furniture and appliances using deodorizing agents, and use equipment like ozone machines and hydroxyl generators (which help to remove odors from areas that are unable to be cleaned by hand, such as the inside of walls).
Afterwards, walls and trim can be completely sealed and painted to restore the area to its original condition. Abbotts’s restoration team specializes in removing smoke damage but household items such as bedding and clothes may need special attention by outside specialists, as they absorb and hold odors better and are more easily damaged.
Accidents happen, and these include those from our beloved pets on our floors, carpeting, and furniture. Regardless of whether you discovered the accident hot off the press or found out it happened without your knowledge a while ago, dog and cat urine require odor cleanup. If left unattended, these accidents cause various types of damage to floors and furniture.
Pet urine can damage carpet in several ways, including weakening and separating its layers, creating stains, and producing odor. Stains are a common result of pet urine, and the success of removing them depends on the amount of time after the accident, and the type of carpet or furniture dye.

How does the odor removal process destroy viruses?
Viruses are a complex collection of bacteria cells that reproduce at a rapid rate inside a host cell. Our product eliminates viruses and bacteria by absorbing onto and penetrating the protein coat of said cell, therefore damaging the genetic capability of the virus to reproduce, rendering it ineffective. The reaction with vital amino acids is one of the dominant processes of its action to eliminate bacteria and viruses.
Does your odor removal process help with allergens?
Yes, our various odor removal systems can help to eliminate allergens from your home, office, and environment within hours. Our product has a unique way of finding the harmful allergens at their source and removes them 100% of the time.
Do I need to pay anything up front?
We will coordinate with and bill your insurance company directly. Typically, the insurance company will pay us directly the full cost of mitigation (e.g. water extraction, drying, dehumidification) since we use the same estimating software and follow industry guidelines.
The deductible amount is applied to the reconstruction funds. We will bill you the amount of the deductible once the insurance company cuts you a check for the reconstruction funds, about two weeks after the claim is filed.
