This is a very demanding task and would involve wet cleaning, dry cleaning, foam cleaning, abrasive cleaning and cleaning immersion techniques. Further there also would be the need to remove odor causing bacteria and microorganisms that could be living in crevices and other such deep place. This might call for fumigation activities and even ingesting of special chemicals, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agents.

Once the cleaning is completed and odor causing bacteria are killed then there would be the need to ensure that the problem does not occur again and to ensure that there is a permanent solution to the problem.
