Have Odors in Your Greenland Home from Flood Damage? SERVPRO is Your Solution
Mitigating Flood Damage to Control Odors in Your Greenland Home
Water of any type can create odors inside your Greenland home. These odors can increase in strength as the water becomes dirtier. Floodwaters and sewage might occur in a small, localized area in your home but create foul odors that you can detect anywhere you go inside your house.
SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians (OCT) help homeowners in Greenland make their homes smell nice again after a flood damage disaster. Flooding can create extremely difficult odors, and even after successful mitigation and restoration, these heavy scents can continue to permeate your home's structure. Microorganisms, organic matter, pollutants, and soils from the flooding event can cause these odors, as well as chemical reactions that take place between the water and the substances in your property.
Many times, homeowners wish for our SERVPRO technicians to use ozone to eliminate the odors caused by flood damage that affected their property. We have a better option. Hydroxyl gas is equally effective and has added benefits that make using it safe to use in damp areas. Expert guidance recommends against using ozone in damp areas, among other situations.
Ozone can cause permanent color changes to damp fabrics and carpets, and it can also harm plants, pets, and people who occupy affected areas during treatment. Hydroxyl is less damaging than ozone. It can eliminate odors in damp conditions without causing changes to color, is safe enough for regular activities to take place, and produces excellent elimination of odors. The sole drawback is that it requires additional time to work, whereas ozone works more rapidly. However, this tradeoff becomes negligible when taking into consideration the fact that work does not need to stop at all while we use hydroxyl generators. Choosing ozone requires everyone to vacate the area, including those performing mitigation work.
