Most odors are just a temporary annoyance, but some odors can be so strong and lasting that they can render a home, building or car uninhabitable until the odor has been removed.
There is no need to just "live with it" until the odor eventually goes away when in most cases W.E.T. can remove the odor for you.

A masking agent, such as a basic air freshener, simply covers the odor with another more pleasant odor. This is a very short term solution with limited effectiveness. As soon as the masking agent dissipates, the odor will return.
To completely remove the odor, the source of the odor must be removed, then the odor molecules must be removed or neutralized by means of a “pairing agent.” Rather than merely masking the odor, a pairing agent actually bonds with the odor molecule, changing its chemical structure and thus completely neutralizing the odor at the molecular level.
