Is an Odor Removal Franchise Right for You?
You’ve probably heard the expression “the nose knows.” Scientists have recently discovered the truth behind this maxim, shattering the common misperception that humans don’t have a good sense of smell. A landmark Rutgers University study proved humans can distinguish between a trillion different odors, pleasant, unpleasant, and everything in between.
Because our brains react to a smell almost instantly, smells are closely linked to emotion and memory. The multi-billion dollar perfume industry is built on this fact. Unfortunately, not all smells are as pleasing as perfume. Some odors are so fetid that we’ll do whatever it takes to get rid of them. That’s why odor removal services are in high demand, and why many disaster restoration companies have added them to their menu of offerings.
The Ever-Present Need for Odor Removal Services
In an industry like disaster restoration, smart companies look for ways to diversify their revenue streams by offering additional services like odor removal. Many businesses have a continuing need for odor removal.
- Realtors and property managers. A clean-smelling home will sell or rent faster if someone can remove cigarette, marijuana, and pet odors from the property
- School and gym locker rooms. The smell of sweat can permeate everything and often won’t be removed by a simple cleaning.
- The room may be rented as smoke or pet-free, but some guests will disregard that. Hotel managers need to get the odors out before the next guest checks in.
- Rental car agencies. Cigarette smoke can penetrate the upholstery and carpet in an automobile and be very difficult to remove if not handled correctly.
What You Need to Know before Starting an Odor Removal Franchise
Odors can be signs of imminent danger like fires, gas leaks, or rotten foods, or they can indicate hidden problems such as sewage leaks, mold growth, or a dead animal rotting under a house. Odor removal professionals know that getting rid of the foul smell without eliminating the cause is like a doctor treating your symptoms without diagnosing the disease. It’s just a temporary solution.
AdvantaClean trains its franchisees to look for the root of the problem. Besides dealing with the mold and mildew causing the odor, they know to look for the leaky pipe that’s creating the conditions for mold to grow. They are aware that smoke and soot can seep into the floors and walls of a house, lingering long after a fire has been put out, causing not only foul odors but also potential health problems for residents.
