This Stinks! How long until the smell goes away?
There really is no one answer to this question. How long the smell will stay is dependent on a couple of different factors.
- If It is a dead body clean up, what kind of health was the deceased in?
- How long was the body in the home?
- What is the temperature in the home?
If it is a septic backup, the temperature will also play a factor in how long it will take to eliminate the smells.
What you can guarantee, is that Cleanway will do everything possible to eliminate the smells including using special cleaners and deodorizers that help to bring your home back to its normal smell.
