What is That Smell?

A home disaster, such as a mold infestation or a house fire, can feel like quite a never-ending journey. No one expects to experience a residential disaster and the shock that comes with it. After your home has gone through the restoration process, the last thing you want to experience is lingering smells.

It's important to be aware of the home disasters that leave behind stubborn smells and the solution to eliminating them. Let's dive into the most common pesky scents that have difficulty leaving any living space:


Although mold often doesn't exhibit a strong smell, it's often described as musty when emitting an odor. Others describe the scent as earthy or even rotten.

If your home has been smelling suspiciously like mold, it's time to schedule a mold testing appointment. Don't put your health on the line; gain peace of mind and obtain the answers you need with our premium mold testing services.

If your home has been affected by mold, remediation and removal services are necessary to rid your living space of that musty smell for good. Mold is hazardous and should only be treated and removed by professionals. Our restoration experts at Advanced Water Restoration have years of experience working with homes affected by mold.

The damage left behind by a fire can be devastating, and even areas that were salvaged may experience lingering smoke smells. It's essential to rid your home of stubborn smoke odors as soon as possible to prevent tarnished indoor air quality in your living space.

Smoke can travel deep into a building's nooks and crannies, making it extremely difficult for homeowners to remove on their own.

We have the necessary equipment and knowledge that will restore the comfort of your home as quickly as possible.
