Just in case your to-do was looking a little short, we’ve got another line item for you. When it comes to commercial cleaning services, MA businesses keep us busy. Experts at all sorts of damage control and remediation, your SERVPRO of Danvers and Ipswich team also offers odor removal and deodorization services. 

Now, there are plenty of reasons why your business might suddenly be suffering from the bane of bad odors. However, a common culprit is a little piece of equipment called the P-trap. Shaped like a U and made of PVC or stainless steel, P-traps are found beneath sinks and inside toilets. Despite their small size, P-traps serve a big purpose. 

Essentially, P-traps prevent clogs from causing problems in your pipes while also keeping sewer gasses from leaking into your office space -- or home, for that matter. 

In order to function properly, it’s important that your P-trap doesn’t dry out, which can happen if a bathroom or sink is unused for a significant length of time. In that case, you might encounter foul odors, like rotten eggs. 

Of course, this is just one example of a bad odor that can compromise an otherwise happy and fragrance-free environment in your commercial building. 

If something stinks in your building, contact us for expert odor removal and deodorization.
