4 Health Hazards of Lingering Odors & How Bio-One Can Help

4 Health Hazards of Lingering Odors & How Bio-One Can Help

We all know that bad smells can be unpleasant. But did you know that they can also be dangerous to your health? That's right – odor-causing bacteria in the home can be hazardous to your health and well-being, not to mention the indoor air quality levels affected by this problem. Here are four health hazards of lingering odors and how our odor removal services can help you get rid of them:

1. Lingering odors can cause headaches and migraines.

You'll know just how debilitating they can be if you suffer from headaches or migraines. And if you're sensitive to smells, you're likely to find unpleasant odors that can trigger these headaches. So if you're noticing that you're getting more headaches than usual or that they seem to be triggered by certain smells, then it's worth investigating whether there are any lingering odors in your home.

2. Lingering odors can cause respiratory problems.

If you have asthma or other respiratory problems, you'll know that avoiding anything that could trigger an attack is essential. And unfortunately, unwanted odors can be one of these triggers. So if you're noticing that your respiratory problems are getting worse or that you're having more attacks than usual, it's worth checking for any lingering odors in your home.

3. Lingering odors can cause nausea and vomiting.

You may find that solid odors can make you nauseous if you're sensitive to smells. And in some cases, this can even lead to vomiting. So if you're noticing that you're feeling nauseous more often than usual or that certain smells are making you feel particularly ill, then it's worth checking for any potential odor problem in your home.

If you're unsure of where these pervasive odors might be coming from, let Bio-One help you thoroughly clean and disinfect your home or business.

4. Lingering odors can cause fatigue and low energy levels.

If you're struggling with fatigue or low energy levels, it could be because of the fumes from odor molecules. Inhaling these fumes can be pretty tiring and lead to fatigue over time. So if you're noticing that you're feeling more tired than usual or that certain smells are making you feel particularly sleepy, then you need to kill odor-causing bacteria safely and effectively!

Beware of Tobacco Smoke and Nicotine Odor

Tobacco smoke and nicotine odor can be hazardous to your health. Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including at least 60 known to cause cancer. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can seriously affect your health. Some of the other harmful chemicals in tobacco smoke include:

  • Arsenic
  • Benzene
  • Cadmium
  • Chromium
  • Formaldehyde
  • Lead
  • Mercury

Exposure to cigarette smoke and nicotine odor, even from secondhand smoke,  can cause several serious health problems, including cancer, heart disease, lung disease, and other respiratory illnesses. If you are exposed to cigarette smoke or nicotine odor, you must seek medical attention immediately.

There are many ways to avoid exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine odor. If you smoke, it is essential to quit. If you do not smoke, it is important to avoid places where smoking is allowed, such as bars and restaurants.

It is also important to avoid secondhand smoke by staying away from people who are smoking. If you must be around smokers, wearing a mask or respirator is vital to protect yourself from the harmful chemicals in tobacco smoke.
