How Professionals Combat Smells after Flood Damage to Your Dallas Property
SERVPRO’s Steps to Ridding Your Home of Bad Odors after Flood Damage
Flood damage due to storms often contains dirty, contaminated water that can leave your home with a rank odor even after water removal. Expert technicians use various techniques to eliminate this odor and get your home smelling like home again.
SERVPRO professionals combat the foul odors after flood damage to your Dallas home by employing a multi-directional approach. Here are the steps involved in the successful elimination of bad odor after flood damage.
Eliminating the Source
The first step to combat bad odors is to locate and eliminate the source as soon as possible. No deodorizing equipment is going to mask the odor forever if the source is not eliminated. Our IICRC certified technicians make sure that they eliminate the source of the odor whether it is sewage, residual moisture, trash or dead animals before they start the actual deodorizing procedure.
Multiple Method Approaches
SERVPRO professionals use multiple method approaches to combat various kinds of smells after flood damage. We use a wide array of deodorizing techniques including injection method, spray method and wet and thermal fogging to eliminate different types of odors.
Using Different Types of Deodorants
No single deodorant works on all kinds of smells. So, we use a combination of different kinds of deodorants to combat different scents. Whether the odor is real or imaginary, we have a deodorizing agent that is perfect for any situation. Here are some of the deodorants that SERVPRO technicians use most often.
- Masking agents: These agents cover bad odors by concealing them with some pleasant-smelling fragrances. These are great for both real and imaginary smells.
- Filtration and absorption agents: These agents absorb moisture and some odor-causing molecules from the air and eliminate them. A typical example of such an agent is activated charcoal.
- Pairing agents: These are chemicals that combine with odor-causing particles in the air and make them fall on the ground. Once they are no longer suspended in the air, they can be swiftly cleaned up from the floor.
- Electrically generated deodorizer: This equipment produces ozone, which is an unstable oxygen molecule. The ozone combines chemically with the odor-causing particle in the air and neutralizes it.
