The Dangers of Lingering Odors Indoors & How Bio-One Can Remove Them

The Dangers of Lingering Odors Indoors & How Bio-One Can Remove Them

We all know what it’s like to have unpleasant odors in our home. Maybe it’s a smelly dish that was left out too long, or a wet dog that tracked mud through the house. Whatever the source of the odor, it can be tough to get rid of. And, if the odor is strong enough, it can actually be dangerous.

There are a few different ways that odors can be dangerous. First, some odors can be toxic. This is especially true of chemicals like cleaning products and paint fumes. If these fumes build up in a confined space, they can cause poisoning.


Second, odors can be irritating to the respiratory system. This is especially true of strong smells like smoke and perfumes. If you’re exposed to these smells for too long, they can irritate your lungs and throat. In some cases, this can even lead to asthma attacks.


Finally, odors can be distracting and dangerous. If you’re trying to concentrate on something, unwanted odors can be distracting. And, if you’re driving or operating machinery, a strong odor can be dangerous.

How do you get rid of these dangerous odors?


Here are a few helpful tips that you can apply to your home or business:


1. Find the source of the odor and clean it up. This may require some detective work, but it's important to find and remove the source of the odor before you can effectively eliminate it.


2. Ventilate the area. Once you've located and removed the source of the odor, open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate. This will help to dissipate the lingering odor.
