How SERVPRO Removes Residual Odors From Your Glendale Home After a Flood

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

Strong odors are a byproduct of flooding.SERVPRO has the equipment to remove the odors and make your home "Like it never even happened."

Eliminating the Odor Left Behind by Flood Damage in a Glendale Residence

Clean water from broken lines or overflows in your Glendale home can cause an odor to begin developing. When highly contaminated water from flooding invades your home, the smell can become exorbitantly stronger. When your home contains such odors, the scent can transfer to clothing, books, shoes, and anything else porous enough to absorb the particles causing the smell.  

Glendale residents carry the smell of flood damage out of their homes every time they wear clothing that picked up that scent. Because odors can persist for lengthy periods, SERVPRO uses high technology to eliminate the particles that cause such smells. After we place your belongings inside the deodorizing chamber, hydroxyl generators fill it with hydroxy gas.  

When the weakly bonded H – O – H molecule breaks down and releases an H atom, this now-free atom bonds with the microscopic materials that cause flood damage odors. Once bonded, the particles become too heavy to waft back into the air and create an odor.  

This process works for other items, also. Stuffed toys, porcelain collectibles, fine art, fragile items, and a lot more. Deodorizing after or during the more physical aspects of flood damage mitigation can help make things genuinely feel “Like it never even happened.” Not only is your home's restoration making it possible for you and your family to return home, your newly cleaned and deodorized belongings hold no traces of the ordeal you recently experienced.  

SERVPRO's Odor Control Technician (OCT) understands that odors can seem stronger to one individual while at the same time another person does not notice anything. Because we want you to be satisfied with our work, we discuss the options regarding this aspect of flood damage mitigation. We are not satisfied until you are happy with the results. Reaching this point requires that we form a partnership with you and keep communication lines open the entire time we perform the mitigation work. We are always happy to answer your questions and discuss any concerns you have about your home's condition.  

SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale can help you and your family get everything back to normal after an event involving flood damage. If your home in Atwater Village or Highland Park suffers through flooding, call us at (818) 244-6005. Our 24-hour service line is open every day of the year.
