How Water Damage can Leave Your Pinellas County Home with Unwanted Odors
Water reacts with different chemicals in diverse ways, and if your Pinellas County residence has problematic plumbing, these chemical changes can become highly noticeable. Water can cause problems in several different ways, and unpleasant odors can affect the entire house.
Homeowners can see many ways water damage in Pinellas County appears in their home's structure, but odors spread out all through the house, seemingly stronger in some areas than in other locations. SERVPRO can get control of these olfactory nuisances and make your home smell normal again.
Mitigating water damage easily reduces the unpleasant odors often associated with the presence of water, but odor control can significantly help the situation. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) holds certification from the IICRC and comes prepared to provide you with effective odor control measures.
Placing odor-controlling liquids directly into your carpet's pad with an injection system provides evenly dispersed and long-lasting fragrance for low-level odors. This method poses no risk of discoloring your carpet with stains, and we can reapply it as often as needed. It is also highly safe for children and pets.
Gel packs placed in inaccessible locations within areas of your home that seem to experience the worst or most concentrated odors typically provide substantial relief. These last an extremely long time as they slowly give off their scents.
To neutralize the odors that water damage creates, we can also perform thermal fogging. This method binds odor-causing substances in your home with the chemical agents in the fogging machine. Once bonded to the particles creating the odors, no more particles can find their way back into your home's air.
Another method we often rely on is the production of either ozone or hydroxyl gas. Ozone is well-known, but in damper situations, we prefer to use the hydroxyl gas, instead of the ozone. Ozone production should not take place in occupied homes, where plants must remain, or where damp carpets or furniture exist. Hydroxyl gas production does not have any of these restrictions, making it safer to use. Hydroxyl gas is just as effective as ozone gas but without the risks.
