SERVPRO: Your Odor Removal Experts | SERVPRO® of East Brownsville & South Padre Island

4/29/2024 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO, we have a network of experts across the country that are ready to handle your every restoration and professional cleaning need. While you may know that we are the mold, fire, storm and water restoration professionals to call after a disaster, we can also handle the intense smells that are often left behind after an event.

When a disaster strikes, the stress that follows in the recovery process can be intense, and worrying about how things smell when all is said and done is likely the last thing on your mind.

Every kind of disaster, whether water, fire or storm, will leave behind nasty odors that could linger long term when not remediated quickly. Even a home that looks incredibly clean could be hiding odors in places you never even imagined.

If you find yourself constantly wondering what that smell is, call in the professionals and kick the smell out completely.

Odor Removal Techniques

Odors are the result of airborne particles from chemicals and gasses. Once the source of the smell has been removed, our professionals will use a scientific method to employ a mixture of deodorization and other products along with other procedures designed to remove odors.

Some of the products we use include:

Masking agents. These products do not remove smells; instead, they cover them in order to create a more pleasant environment to work in as the restoration project moves forward.

Filtration agents. Agents that absorb odors are used on furniture and other construction materials. These highly absorptive compounds can also trap odors in the air and filter them out.

Disinfectants and sanitizers. These kinds of substances are used in areas with bacteria and fungi growth to kill them at their source and stop the resulting release of smells.

These are not the only techniques our experts will use, but they are three of the most commonly employed in the restoration process.

The Signature 4-Step Process

The process for removing odors has four main parts:

1. Remove the source. The first step in odor remediation will always be identifying and removing the source in order to stop the spread of the particles causing the smell.

2. Clean residue from surfaces. Once the source of the odor is removed, the next step is to clean all surfaces and deodorize as effectively as possible. This will stop any additional odors that could be left behind.

3, Recreate the odor-causing conditions. In order to penetrate all the same surfaces that the initial disaster touched, our pros will employ deodorizers in the same fashion as what caused the problem. This means if your home has smoke damage, a deodorizing smoke will be used to correct it.

4. Seal exposed surfaces. When a situation is extreme, it may require sealing surfaces to block odors from escaping rather than removing them. This process is used when odor removal is too expensive or impractical for the situation.

Effective odor removal requires fast action. If you have faced a serious problem in your home, SERVPRO of East Brownsville & South Padre Island is ready to respond right away to mitigate as much damage as possible. We are locally owned and operated, which means that we are just around the corner and always ready for you.
