Causes of odours in Ottawa homes
Any odour—good or bad—is caused by chemical compounds that are released into the air by various sources, such as furniture, cleaning products, food, bacteria, fungi and other germs. These chemicals are then picked up by our body’s olfactory system, which is responsible for our sense of smell. Some odours we register as pleasant (think of freshly baked cookies) while others trigger our gag reflexes (wet dog or stinky trash).
So what are the most common sources of bad or unpleasant smells in Ottawa homes? Here are a few:
- Tobacco and cigarette smoke
- Pets and urine
- Mold and mildew
- New furniture
- Fresh paint
Other common sources of bad smells in your home could simply be linked to things like trash, dirty laundry and general lack of cleanliness. Ensuring regular cleaning and maintenance of your home can go a long way in preventing these kinds of odours.
Why choose Mold Busters Ottawa for odour removal?
Our secret to removing odours and keeping them away is to first identify what’s causing them. A musty mold odour, for example, is caused by an unaddressed moisture issue. To remove the odour, you cannot just remove the mold. You must also fix the moisture problem, otherwise the odour will come back.
For this reason, we always conduct an odour inspection of the home before beginning any odour removal project. This comprehensive assessment allows us to locate the cause of the smell so that we can come up with the best possible removal strategy. Remember also that there can be more than one cause behind the odour so this step is critical to ensuring effective, long-lasting freshness.
We follow a systematic deep cleaning process that has been developed over the course of our 15 years of professional remediation experience. This allows us to remove odours at the source… so they don’t come back. On top of that, we’re equipped with today’s most powerful cleaning tools combined with natural and eco-friendly disinfectants that don’t just cover up odours and bad smells—they remove them!
We’ll go the extra mile too, so if you’re not 100% satisfied, our team will come back until your home is completely odour-free.

Nobody likes a stinky house, and yet, this common household problem affects almost every Ottawa home at one point or another. Whether you’re dealing with a plumbing issue or a beloved family pet that leaves its mark in your bedroom, professional odour removal is your best bet for lasting relief from bad odours.
We often try to mask odours either because we don’t have the time to address their cause or because we don’t know how to get rid of these bad smells. Unfortunately, covering up an odour problem won’t make it go away. In fact, it will only make the problem worse. It may even affect your indoor air quality and health.
