Odour removal cost

Odour removal cost

There are many different kinds of odours that can affect your home and its soft furnishings, and your car too.

For example, the smell of smoke from cigarettes or in the aftermath of a fire. Pets can also be troublesome in terms of unwanted smells, especially when it comes to pet urine on upholstery and carpets. Mould, mildew, and food stains can also cause odours in the home.

The best way to get rid of odours is to deep clean the affected item. This tackles the source of the smell, not just the odour itself.

In this guide, we’ll look at the average odour removal cost for a range of different issues.

Pet odour removal service cost for carpets

If your carpets smell unpleasant and you have a dog or cat, the culprit is most likely to be pet urine. However, cigarette smoke or mildew could also be to blame.

The best way to freshen things up is with regular carpet cleaning. For a three-bedroom house, carpet cleaning will cost around £120 to £200.

How much does odour removal cost for car interiors?

It isn’t just homes that can be affected by odours. The inside of your car can also start to smell unpleasant, especially if you regularly transport a pet. Even just getting in and out of your car in wet shoes can cause an odour to build up over time.

Odour removal costs for car interiors tend to be around £35 to £80 on average. This is the price for a full car interior valet, including steam cleaning and/or carpet cleaning.

Smoke odour removal service costs

If you’ve had a fire in your home, you may find that the smell of smoke lingers – even after very small fires.

The only way to get rid of it fully is with a professional smoke damage cleaning service. This costs around £152 to £761 depending on the extent of the damage.

Can I tackle odour removal myself?

You can buy or hire carpet cleaners and buy specialist cleaning products for upholstery which get rid of pet odours. However, if you have a serious problem or are tackling fire or smoke damage, it’s best to call in professionals. An expert can also guarantee a thorough, deep level cleaning job, as they have the equipment and experience to completely remove the odour.

Can unwanted odours be prevented?

There are lots of things you can do to prevent odours building up. For example, avoid smoking inside or eating and drinking on your upholstery. Keep pets off the furniture and make sure they’re completely house trained. Lastly, make sure you have your carpets cleaned regularly.
