What Does It Take To Eliminate Odor During Fire Restoration of a Patchogue Home?
SERVPRO Splits Odor Management into Three Stages during House Fire Clean Up
Several issues, including strong odors, characterize the outcome of a fire incident. Cleaning the affected Patchogue house and removing most charred materials dissipates a portion of the smells. However, comprehensive deodorization is necessary to restore normalcy.
Similar to the other fire restoration processes in Patchogue homes, deodorization is not a single process. Various odor sources may require addressing in different ways. Otherwise, traces of unpleasant odors might remain. SERVPRO takes the restoration process a notch higher by dividing it into different stages.
Grouping the odor management processes help ease:
- Removal of odorous materials
- Containment of volatile odor molecules
- Neutralizing the malodors
Many people consider deodorization a finishing process during the restoration of fire-damaged homes. However, it is possible to kick start it while beginning the other fire restoration processes. One advantage of an early start is the possibility of eliminating odors immediately after finishing cleanup.
Our SERVPRO teams can use containment approaches or even molecule neutralization at the early stages. An example of containment is spraying a chemical deodorizer into odor-causing materials to contain or block odor molecules that might otherwise vaporize into the air. For neutralization, our technicians can set up a hydroxyl or ozone generator which produces unstable oxygen molecules that combine with malodors, offsetting them.
The three stages of deodorization by SERVPRO are, therefore:
- Chemical containment
- Vapor odor control
