Environmental problems Odour

Odour problems come in many forms, these could be day to day smells for example cooking at commercial premises or one off instances of petrol odours, gas, solvents etc. which may require immediate attention.

For many people, odours effecting the use of their properties is a source of irritation and stress that can interfere with the use of individuals home.

Frequently, problems regarding odour can be resolved informally by politely explaining the problem to the maker and trying to come to a compromise. However, this informal approach may not always be successful.

If you are experiencing problems relating to gas or petrol these need to be reported immediately.

We cannot take action where odour is caused by cooking smells from a normal domestic property or by cigarette smoke travelling between properties.
