Our Odour Removal Process

We begin our Ottawa odour removal process by first performing a site-visit. Moisture sensors, thermo hygrometers, thermal scopes; all our tools and techniques are used in order to comprehensively assess the nature of your odour problem. We also identify the cause of the odour problem, whether it be pets, their urine, cigarette smoke or more. Following this, we designate the right combination of deep cleaning, sanitizing, oxidizing, air scrubbing and more.

What might seem to be just an irritating smell could turn out to be a dangerous fungus, droppings from pests, including urine, or even their decomposing bodies! Contact First Response to begin the odour removal process in Ottawa promptly and efficiently.

I wanted to wait for 6-8 weeks to see if it really worked. Well, here's my review. We bought a home that had been heavily smoked in and also smelled horribly of cat urine. Enviropure came in. They removed some carpet, sealed some damages flooring and used an ozone machine. It has been 7 weeks since the work was done.

We had First Response come do a cleaning when we first moved into our home. Richard called me during the cleaning to inform me that they found that there was mold forming on the windows in the downstairs bathroom. I was so impressed by how the First Response team kept me informed throughout the process and continue to use their services.

Relieve Your Home Of Odour

We needed to get a home ready for sale. It had been neglected for a couple of years with a basement filled to hoarder level capacity. The entire house reeked of petroleum product! Hazardous materials where left untouched for who know’s how long! There was some asbestos tape around ductwork to be removed. There was a bit of bathroom mold. That’s not the half of it! The important thing is that First Response handled EVERYTHING! They treated every issue in this house perfectly. The before and after photos are amazing! I would recommend this team to anyone in a similar situation but they do much more than this work! If you need ANY type of hazmat, environmental removal/ cleanup these are the pros! The added bonus is the house sold within 1 week of First Response completing the job!
