Team SERVPRO Arrives With the Training and Equipment to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Property


Odor can be a huge problem after a water damage incidence. If the problem is not handled efficiently, your home can reek of a stale, musty odor long after the restoration process is complete.

Thankfully, SERVPRO technicians use some of the best equipment and techniques to combat odors after water damage to your Dallas home. We make sure that your house smells like home again once we are done restoring it. The professionals can use several instruments to tackle the odor problem after water damage including the following.

Ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers
The ULV foggers are equipment that produces a fine mist of deodorizing agent that penetrates deeper into the surfaces. The foggers are great for deodorizing as they do not require wetting of the surfaces to be deodorized. Another advantage of the ULV foggers is that the deodorant can reach the more difficult to reach places when used in this equipment. They are also great for injecting fungicides and disinfectants as well.

Thermal foggers
These machines produce a fine mist of the deodorizing agent by the use of heat. It generates very fine particles of the deodorizing compound that can penetrate deeper compared to the particles created by the ULV foggers. These foggers are excellent if the water damage has caused extensive damage in hard to reach areas such as nooks and crannies.

Sprayers
SERVPRO professionals can use both handheld and mechanical sprayers to spray a deodorizer to the affected area. This method is excellent if the damage is not very severe and extensive surfaces need to be deodorized. A liquid deodorant is sprayed directly onto the surface being deodorized, and as a result, the surface can become wet after application. The method is not ideal for surfaces that have a problem of discoloration or those, that can be damaged by the liquid deodorant.

Professionals can use a combination of different types of methods depending on the extent of the damage and the type of the odor they are trying to eliminate.
