Odor Removal and Deodorization

Neutralizing Harsh, Offensive Odors 

Many disasters impact homes that leave behind harsh odors and smells to combat through restoration approaches. Much like humidity is a concern for Clearwater homes along the Gulf Coast, failures to address malodors can create another lingering issue that persists long after the restoration completes. Considerable strides have been made in the restoration industry to combat offensive smells. 

Knowing What Your Home Needs

Several deodorization tools in our inventory can all do similar jobs in neutralizing harsh smells in the property after events like fires or sewage backups. Choosing the most efficient of these solutions based on specific criteria allows us to complete the job more effectively. Some factors include:

  • The severity of the odor damage 
  • The size of the damaged area
  • How porous affected materials in the area are
  • The ease of accessing impacted areas of the house

Scoping indicates the property equipment needed for mitigation. This involves more than one approach in the same residence in many cases. Fire losses, for example, could have several surfaces impacted simultaneously by offensive odors like carpets, porous drywall, and clothing. 

The Tools of the Trade

  • Ozone Generators 
  • Air Scrubbers 
  • Thermal and UV Foggers
  • Hydroxyl Machines

The choice of these deodorization products and equipment depends on the severity of the situation in your home, the cause of the odor, and the best approach to resolve it quickly.

We have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate these offensive odors. By identifying the cause of the odor, and determining the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can often be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians have access to several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly.

The science of identifying and eliminating odors can be a tricky thing, so give us a call, and leave the restoration to us.
