Odor Removal in Your Home or Business?
Restoration professionals have the expertise to greatly reduce the possibility of lingering odors. With the proper equipment, products, and procedures, a mold or fire mitigation professional evaluates every situation and proposes and then implements odor removal protocols to eliminate such problems. The professional knows when and how to use masking agents, pairing agents, electronic deodorizers, cleaners, disinfectants, and sealants. She or he will also know when demolition and removal is the best option. Most deodorization jobs will require a combination of procedures to be completely effective.
Water damage frequently causes a musty odor to remain in the home. Improper or incomplete drying of structural or content items is usually the cause. Appropriate drying of the damaged area by a qualified technician is critical. Water detection tools available to the professional help eliminate problems that might occur later on. In addition, daily monitoring and charting of the results during the restoration process further ensures that the structure and contents are completely dried.
However, an intermittent or constant musty smell almost always signals the presence of mold. There is a ten step mold remediation process that will eliminate the mold and the musty odor smell. Only when the cause of the smell, in this case, mold is completely removed will the smell dissipate.
Odors from fire damage tend to be more complicated. A fire restoration expert will determine a number of factors such as: the source of the contamination, the degree of heat involved, the time the materials were in the structure, the extent of the contamination, and the type of materials directly contaminated. The professional will form an action plan and then implement that plan to eliminate lingering odor problems.
