Evicting Bad Odours

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
August 25, 2019
Article Summary: 

In August 2019, an article discussed the challenges of managing bad odours in high-rise buildings. Various factors contribute to unpleasant odours, including trash chutes, resident habits, cooking, cleaning, and ventilation systems. Pets, cooking, second-hand smoke, and trash odours are common complaints, and external odours from nearby sources can also contribute. Mould and pest infestations can be hidden sources of bad odours and health problems. Regular maintenance and cleaning, including trash chute cleaning, sanitizing, and air ventilation system cleaning, can help manage bad odours. Professionals can use tools such as olfactometers, biocassettes, dust monitors, and air sampling equipment to identify the source of odours and measure airborne irritants. An effective HVAC system is also necessary to transport odours outside the building and maintain clean air circulation.
