Count on SERVPRO for Professional Odor-Removal Services | SERVPRO® of Westfield
With multiple locations across the country, SERVPRO provides cleaning and restoration services for residential and commercial properties suffering from damage inflicted by unexpected emergencies. One issue that our team frequently tackles while working to restore property damage is the development of irritating odors.
Recovering after your home or business has been devastated by disaster is a complex process. Following these events, a persistent smell may initially seem like a minor problem given the extensive damage you are dealing with, but it has the potential to worsen significantly over time.
No matter how severe the damage, disasters can develop an odor that will only spread further the longer you wait on repairs. Even if your home appears to be spotless, stubborn smells can sneak into areas you’d never imagine.
The good news is: We can help you out if you’re fighting an odor that just won’t leave! Here’s how our expert team works to rid your property of lingering odors.
Chemicals, gases or small particles in the air all produce nasty smells. As soon as their source is taken care of, our specialists utilize advanced deodorization technologies in conjunction with numerous products and techniques that can make your home odor-free.
Some of these include:
Masking agents. While this isn’t our main method of removal, these substances can hide the smell to create a more tolerable environment as we prepare our next plan of action.
Filtration agents. Absorption agents help to soak up any odors lingering around furniture and construction supplies. These agents steal odors out of the air and lock them in place once they travel through the filtration agents.
Disinfectants and sanitizers. These compounds are designed to destroy and eradicate any bacteria and fungi that might be generating odors inside the affected locations.
While there are several other practices we use to free your home of persistent odors, these three are essential components of the restoration process.
The SERVPRO procedure for odor removal consists of four major steps:
1. Remove the source. Until the source of the smell has been found and disposed of, debris tainted with odor-emitting remnants will only allow the odor to persist. For this reason, our professionals will begin by addressing the source when possible.
2. Clean residue from surfaces. Following the removal of the odor origin, it is essential to deep-clean and deodorize all areas. Small particles and residue will continue to emit unwanted scents if not adequately cleaned.
3. Recreate the odor-causing conditions. Our professionals will apply a deodorizer in the same way that odor-creating substances initially infiltrated your home. For example, if water was the source of the problem, we would use “deodorizing water” during this phase.
4. Seal exposed surfaces. The use of sealants might be necessary in more extreme cases to keep odor-producing from creeping back inside your home. Our team undergoes this phase when odor elimination efforts become too expensive or impossible to execute.
The solution to a persistent, stubborn smell is a rapid response. Our team can get your odor issue under control to keep costs low and safeguard your property from damage. When your property is devastated by disaster, SERVPRO of Westfield is right down the road waiting to help you out!
