Odor Control is Essential to Water Removal Services here in Monroe

One of the less considered issues caused by a water spill at home is unpleasant odors. Remediation of your property is usually a quick process using local technicians and pumping equipment. Afterward, chemical-based cleaning solutions can be applied to ensure the property does not develop secondary damages like mold or mildew growth. However, these chemicals can mask odors which appear once the home returns to its normal condition. Dealing with odors as well as the spill itself is why you should seek professional, qualified restoration experts to deal with the problem.

Many services offering water removal in Monroe can assist with the initial phase of getting the water out of the property as quickly as possible. SERVPRO offers a thorough solution that can involve technicians with certificates in odor control from the IICRC. These qualifications can be a vital part of getting your home back to its preloss condition rather than merely limiting damages.

Technicians with experience know that the key to removing odor is to tackle it at the source. That source could be obvious like raw sewage or less evident like hidden mold, pet litter or water with bacteria. It is not always possible to find the source of an odor, so the only safe method is to tackle it in multiple ways to guarantee a clean, healthy home environment.

We use more than one deodorizer to ensure we can combat unpleasant smells efficiently after water removal. Sometimes masking agents, made up from time release beads, can help to cover up an unpleasant odor. However, these fail to address the source, so SERVPRO Franchise professionals use them in combination with pairing agents; products that join with odor particles causing them to drop onto surfaces where they are cleaned away.

SERVPRO Franchise professionals can also deploy air-scrubbers which remove moisture from the surrounding air. Fitted with HEPA filters, these are capable of filtering out offensive smells or odors from a variety of sources. Usually, with water damages, it is necessary to use them in conjunction with dehumidifiers. Finally, a clean sweep with disinfectants and sanitizers can be beneficial in preventing secondary mold or mildew buildup. It is normal to have odors present in water damages; we are capable of removing both water and odor with the first time of asking.
