Bio-hazardous fluids can and often do produce strong and offensive odors that are generated by many sources and cannot be eliminated until the source is located and the residual fluids are removed or abated. Some contributors that may produce odors requiring abatement are:
In many cases multiple causes of odor are present; and in consideration for the plan of action, we look at the source, type of structure and length of time odor has been there. Odor will permeate porous items such as linens, curtains, newspaper, furniture, clothing, concrete, and drywall. Heat and humidity are also major factors for rapid acceleration of odor transfer. The smell will also get trapped in electronics, and HVAC systems.
Odor removal is a process that takes time and expert knowledge and Crossroads has performed countless cases with a 100% success rate. Also, the entire contents of the home do not need to be discarded. With our experience and techniques, most items can be cleaned and deodorized.

However, blood can have an extremely foul odor in cases of homicide, suicide, accidents and medical situations involving bleed outs or large volume blood loss.
