Indoor Environmental Quality Awareness
Covering Up Those Nasty Odors
Growing up, that was the solution. Something smelt bad, we were taught to spray it with a fragrance. Then the fragrance market got smart and added disinfectants. So, we bought fragrant disinfectants and sprayed the nasty smell till it went away. And, when it returned, we knew it was time to spray it again.
Indoor Environmental Professionals are spreading the word: Don’t ignore that odor or cover it up. Odors are our best indicator of a real problem. Mold, bacteria, the wrong mix of products or chemicals, smoke, gas leaks, sewer leaks, rodent infestations, improper air circulation . . . are just a few of the culprits behind odors. The odors indicate a deeper issue. Rather than covering up the odor, eliminate the source. Ultimately, eliminating the source yields a healthier environment.
A simple example: Mrs. K complained of an intermittent foul odor that gave her headaches while she worked in her shop. Upon investigation, we removed all the chemicals from under her utility sink and placed them on the back porch. She stopped having headaches. She was unaware that the product containers release vapors. The use of equipment in her shop circulated the air releasing the vapors into her work area, causing the odor and the headaches.
“I have had the privilege of working with Baxter Group to help mitigate our unfortunate discrepancies. They are professional, courteous and responsive with their resolve. I have to say that I am certainly impressed with the solutions they have provided and the outcome of the diligent work practices they display. They attack each situation with the unwavering sense of urgency that is necessary for each situation.
